Punch Tavern, one of the UK’s largest leased pub and bar operator, has opted to install ZeeVee’s coax video encoding products across much of its portfolio.
Currently the chain is undergoing a major refurbishment program which will include adding a network of screens and projectors in many of its locations to showcase video from Sky Sports, FreeView channels and camera feeds from in-house Darts and Pool tournaments.
Commercial integrator TVC was chosen to overlook the integration of ZeeVee’s technology, with the company already having experience working on projects similar to Punch Tavern’s.
TVC deployed HDbridge2312 and HDbridge2540 video encoders in order to deliver a mix of digital SD and HD signals to new HD screens and projectors at selected Punch pub locations.
“When we first looked at ZeeVee’s products we were impressed by the video quality and ease of set up using their Maestro web based interface,” says Matt Brown, managing director, TVC.
“This, combined with the simplicity of a coax installation, meant that we were able to offer a very cost effective and flexible solution to Punch that had no limitation on the total number of screens that could be installed.”
“With extensive audio-visual experience and unrivalled customer service, TVC has been an excellent partner for Zv in the U.K.,” says Bob Michaels, CEO, ZeeVee.
“Our product offering is well aligned with TVC’s target markets, delivering standard, high definition and Ultra HD video signals to digital displays and TV sets, and also delivering IP video via standards based, off the shelf IT networks and displays.”
