AVProAlliance Announces Zigen 4K Modular Matrix Switches

Zigen line of HDMI connectivity products

SIOUX FALLS, S.D., Jan. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- 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."

Innovative Product

Zigen offers an industry leading 2K/4K modular HDMI to HDBaseT matrix switch, field upgradable from 2x2 to 16x16. 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."

Zigen 4K Modular Matrix Switches Availability

The entire Zigen line of industry leading 2K/4K 70 and 100 meter HDMI Extenders, Distribution Amps, Modular HDMI and HDBaseT Matrix Switches and Audio Distribution is available at

Manufacturing has widely adopted standardized and automated processes to create designs, build them, and maintain them through their life cycle. However, many modern manufacturing systems go beyond mechanized workflows to introduce empowered workers, flexible collaboration, and rapid iteration.

DevOps is gaining traction in the federal government – and for good reasons. Heightened user expectations are pushing IT organizations to accelerate application development and support more innovation.
