ZeeVee Shows Set Top Box Decoder With PoE and 4K Scaling

zeevee STBi3 0220ZeeVee is at ISE 2020 (booth 10-N197) showing what they claim to be the industry’s first set top box decoder, with Power over Ethernet (PoE) and 4K video scaler — in one. The new STBi3 set top box is designed for bulk video distribution or IPTV type applications and simplifies AV over IP streaming. It can be used in conjunction with the ZyPer MX-4, ZeeVee’s Quad-Channel H.264 encoder or the HDBbridge3000 to provide an easy and affordable way to create a digital head-end for distributing large numbers of AV sources to an unlimited amount of displays.
 
The STBi3 supports UDP and RTP streams (with MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 encoding), as well as QAM and ATSC 2.0 for the North American market. It is the only set top box that offers PoE and scales video up to 4K/60 for compatible 4K/60 monitors. Deployments are simplified thanks to the auto-discovery of ZeeVee generated IP streams that enable simple plug-and-play connectivity to the network for viewing channels. The STBi3’s architecture also allows for easy expansion as system requirements change.
 
Among the newest features of its ZyPer Management Platform 2.1 are a video preview function (demonstrated here) that makes it easier to identify content before it is routed to any endpoint in the system, and a  multiview text overlay function that enables users to add varied descriptions, custom labels and branding simultaneously over onscreen video delivered to multiple monitors. Additional features include Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), and enhanced network and security capabilities.

Here are the details.
