About the Blackmagic Design Compact Videohub

Perfect when you need a bigger router in a small size, such as creative post facilities and broadcast trucks! Compact Videohub includes 40 x 40 SDI routing all packed into a 2 rack unit size! You get auto SD, HD and 3 Gb/s HD-SDI detection, re-clocking, with built in ethernet, USB and serial router control interfaces.

Blackmagic Design Compact Videohub Features

  • No Manual Patching!: In the past most studios have been forced to use manual patching to connect editing workstations and decks. However this can become too complicated for creative designers, graphic artists and editors to understand, plus it gets even more complicated as your studio grows
  • Industrial Strength Routing Switcher: Blackmagic Design's Videohub routers are not only based on a revolutionary design but they also have the most advanced electronics technology available today
  • SDI Re-Clocking: Videohub also includes built in SDI re-clockers on each SDI input which regenerate the SDI video signal. Every inch of video cable from your SDI video devices degrades the SDI signal
  • Simultaneous SD, HD or 3 Gb/s Video: Videohub makes it easy to run Standard Definition and High Definition equipment now and add 3 Gb/s SDI equipment in the future
  • Independent Monitoring: Because most editors love monitoring direct from the router, Videohub has up to 144 independent SDI outputs totally dedicated for monitoring
  • Deck Control Routing: With up to 144 independent Sony compatible RS-422 serial control ports included, each editing system can control any deck in your facility
  • World's Highest Quality 3 Gb/s SDI: With the exciting new 3 Gb/s SDI connections built in, Videohub allows twice the SDI data rate than normal HD-SDI
