The HDbridge's Maestro software enables quick setup for customizing your sources and channels, plus a front LCD panel for controlling and monitoring the unit. It's designed especially for high channel density situations where compatibility, rapid deployment, and advanced management are critical. Found in some of the world's most famous ballparks, it's a great solution for environments with a large number of displays, such as entertainment facilities, stadiums, or Broadcast environments.

With the HDbridge2840, you can distribute video in nearly any resolution from a unencrypted HDMI source up to 1920x1080, whila also supporting EIA/CEA-608 closed captions via the composite video input. Great for sports bars with multiple displays.

There's no limit to the number of displays that you can employ using the HDbridge. It converts your unencrypted HDMI video sources into private television channels that can send content from 2 on up to 2000+ connected displays over nearly any distance, all via coax. HDbridge units can also be combined to support over 100 different channels on your network.

An easy to read LCD color front panel featured on the HDbridge 2000 series makes it easy to set up and monitor your channels, as well as check firmware and identify IP addresses with no need for a computer. Status of video and audio content being shown is provided by the panel via green, yellow, or red color bars on each channel, with the panel also enabling easy adjustment of RF power and audio delay, helping to ensure perfect picture and sound on every screen.
