Sioux Falls, SD (1/21/2014)— Zigen 4K Modular Matrix Switches — Today AVProAlliance announced immediate availability of Zigen 4K Modular Matrix Switches line of HDMI connectivity products, providing AV integration professionals access to innovative Zigen HDMI connectivity solutions in distribution for the first time.
The Zigen Story
“Zigen was designed by installers, for installers,” said Ed Dellalyan, President of Zigencorp. “It’s about reliability. No installer can afford go-backs and service calls. We were not thinking of market share when we developed our products; we just needed a product that worked right the first time. We couldn’t find anything reliable, so we started a development company to find the glitches in HDMI/HDBaseT. It wasn’t easy, but we did it. Our business has grown to this point by word of mouth because the guys who use our product swear by them.”
Zigen offers an industry leading 2K/4K modular HDMI to HDBaseT matrix switch, field upgradable from 2×2 to 16×16. Available two port cards (two inputs and two outputs) include 70m and 100m HDBaseT along with HDMI to HDMI cards. Models ZIG-HX-88HDBT-C and ZIG-HX-1616HDBT-C are currently shipping.
Zigen now supports Integrators with the Super Extender, ZIG-HAVEX. Adding to core Zigen extender functionality (2K/4K, HDbaseT, bidirectional RS232, IR and CEC), the HAVEX includes a four port Ethernet switch. Now just one category delivers full, top shelf Zigen functionality and the internet for Smart TVs.
Positive Customer Impact
Video Equipment Rentals, the US-based wholesale rental giant, committed to deploying Zigen HDMI extension and switching after Zigencorp worked to develop the first reliable HDMI extender solution supporting Barco Pro-Processors.
“Ed worked with us to engineer a rock solid solution for HDMI extension when no other brands were reliable,” said Karan Maronyan, Manager of Fiber Optic and Special Cable for Video Equipment Rentals. “Zigen just works, and Zigen won our business by solving a long standing reliability problem for us. Zigen switches and extenders are priced very attractively compared to other products in the marketplace.”
