’ Although somewhat similar to other products on the market, the ZvBox is considered quite unique because it is a PC-top-box versus a set-top-box. Whereas most boxes must be connected to the TV (therefore increasing room clutter), the ZeeVee ZvBox transmits all signals through a required QAM-capable internal tuner on the HDTV. In addition, the ZeeVee ZvBox lets users access computer applications, Internet content, and even the PC’s DVD player directly from their HDTVs. Users can in fact connect every HDTV in their home to the ZeeVee, therefore allowing unlimited distribution of online content throughout the home. The ZeeVee ZvBox also features dual-channel PCM over Dolby Digital Sound, and inputs for USB, VGA1, VGA2, and cable.
