Z-Band: The Leader in Enterprise Video Distribution Systems
Z-Band is a veteran-owned commercial video system provider based in Carlisle, PA. The company designs and manufactures leading-edge, high-definition video distribution systems for the government, healthcare, commercial, education, hospitality, and international markets. Z-Band features an active, self-adjusting system that is capable of distributing CATV/HDTV, satellite, internally-generated video, 4K and other video-on-demand (VOD) services over shielded and unshielded twisted pair (UTP) Category cable.
Patented Technology Provides Dependable Maintenance-Free Picture Quality
Z-Band’s (RF) HDTV distribution system features patented technology that is unparalleled in the industry. A one-piece 12- or 24-port master hub and intelligent balun automatically adjust the video signal for gain or slope, ensuring the highest possible picture quality to all drops and across the broadcast spectrum. Through a process known as cascading, additional hubs can be added quickly and easily, enabling efficient HD distribution to thousands of enterprise televisions.
Category Cable Is the Horizontal Infrastructure of a Z-Band Video Distribution System
While the Z-Band distribution system relies on single-mode fiber or coax cable (RG6 or RG11) for its backbone, it’s the use of Category (CAT) cable in the horizontal that makes the difference. Z-Band technology works extremely well with CAT 5e or better cable for providing video distribution from the hubs to individual TVs, using “video CAT 6A shielded cable” facilitates the end-user to get the highest quality video from their HD distribution system.
Acquisition and Life-Cycle Costs of a Z-Band System
A Z-Band system can offer multiple benefits for your organization. Because the system makes use of CAT cable, it’s much easier to configure than a coax-based system. The simple “plug and play” technology requires only a small amount of technical expertise for adds, moves and drops. A Z-Band system is also easy to maintain, keeping associated labor costs to a minimum — you’ll appreciate the way the lower design, installation and maintenance costs will provide a meaningful return on your initial investment.
