Almo Professional A/V Teams with ZeeVee to Provide Affordable HD Video and Digital Signage

Philadelphia, PA — December 2, 2010 — Almo Professional A/V, the nation’s fastest growing audiovisual distributor, today announced a new distribution relationship with ZeeVee Inc, developer of affordable and easy-to-deploy HD video distribution products. ZeeVee’s ZvPro™ and ZvBox® products are now available directly from Almo for HD video and other commercial digital signage applications. ZeeVee will exhibit and provide a training session during Almo’s final E4 AV partner training and networking event of the year on Dec. 15 in New York City.

“The ZeeVee team has found a way to enable affordable distribution of HD video and digital signage, and we are now able to pass along these benefits to our partners,? said Sam Taylor, executive vice president and COO for Almo Professional A/V. “The great pricing and simplicity of the products are enormous advantages, regardless of whether resellers and integrators are well-established in digital signage and HD video distribution or just getting started.?

According to Dave Malin, ZeeVee’s vice president of sales, “We view Almo Professional A/V as an ideal business partner. The company has an outstanding dealer base that is very loyal, due in part to Almo’s ongoing, substantial commitment to training.? He continued, “Add to that Almo’s powerful marketing efforts and we think it’s a perfect match.?

ZeeVee has shattered the cost and deployment barriers for HD video distribution within hotels, airports, restaurants, bars, schools, hospitals and everywhere else digital signage or high end video is shown. Its products incorporate the same HDTV broadcasting technology used by television and cable companies and adapt it for on-premise use.

Almo now carries the ZvPro™ line of professional HD video distribution products, including the new ZVPro 280 — an HD MPEG2 encoder and a QAM modulator combined in one package. It distributes razor-sharp digital signage and HD video without the need for players at each display,

Based on the same technology used by TV stations and cable companies, Almo also offers ZeeVee’s ZvBox®, which turns the output of a VGA or an HD source into an HDTV cable channel and broadcasts it over coax cabling to all connected HDTVs. ZvBox connects to off-the-shelf HDTVs without additional decoder boxes at each TV, handles up to 135 simultaneous channels, and is easy to deploy and expand by using simple hand tools.

To help its partners gain a greater understanding about the benefits of ZeeVee products, Almo has added a ZeeVee training session to its Dec. 15 E4 AV training and networking tour, entitled “Distribute HD Video and Digital Signage Over Coax.? The presentation discusses ideal applications, ZvBox technology and configuration, basic installation, and an introduction to ZeeVee resources aimed at the professional AV integration specialist.
