Global Invacom, a UK-based satellite communications company, has launched its tvLINK HD system, which uses patent-pending technology to enable fast and cost-effective upgrading of existing coaxial cable systems. Via the platform, multiple HD displays can be driven from a single HDMI source, like a satellite set top box.

“Our global tvLINK HD coax and wireless products enable SD to HD upgrades without the need to replace in situ coaxial cabling with expensive HDMI or Fast Ethernet cabling, minimizing disruption to venues with constant consumer traffic,” comments Ian Walsh, VP of business development at Global Invacom. “The rapid proliferation of large screen HDTVs in sports bar and digital signage venues, and consumer demand for HD quality video, makes upgrading an essential business decision.”

A multiroom 802.11n Wi-Fi version of the product is also available for new wireless installations and for extending coax systems.

“The tvLINK HD and Provision CE products mark the introduction of our multiroom and multiscreen video distribution products for business and residential markets,” says Tony Taylor, Global Invacom’s chairman and CEO. “These fit well with our satellite TV and fiber-optic video distribution products that we manufacture and supply to operators, distributors and OEMs around the world.”

Global Invacom unveiled the product to cabling installers and distributors at the recent InfoComm 2014 (June 16-19) in Las Vegas.
