About this item

The BlackMagic Design Studio Videohub is perfect for smaller workgroups who need compact size at an affordable cost. Studio Videohub has the exact same high performance features of the larger models, including 3 Gb/s SDI, auto standard detection for SD, HD and 3 Gb/s HD-SDI formats, re-clocking and more. Studio Videohub features 16 inputs, 32 outputs and 16 deck control ports all packed into a tiny 2 rack unit size less than an inch thick. Studio Videohub uses the same power supply as the larger models and the same powerful software.

Key Features

  • No Manual Patching!: Videohub eliminates this problem because everyone is permanently connected and no cables need to be physically changed ever. All video connections are changed from an easy to use software application right from your computer desktop.
  • Industrial Strength Routing Switcher: All Videohub routers include SDI re-clocking so even the longest distance equipment from your router can be connected together. Combined with redundant power supplies, power fail protection and high reliability single PCB construction.
  • 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. Expensive premium grade "digital" cables can help.
  • 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. That's because Videohub handles mixed SD, HD and 3 Gb/s SDI connections all on the same router at the same time.
  • Independent Monitoring: Because most editors love monitoring direct from the router, Videohub has up to 144 independent SDI outputs totally dedicated for monitoring. Independent monitoring outputs are great when you need to quickly look at decks and other editing systems in your facility.
  • 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. Each deck control connection is independently reversible via software control.
  • 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. Use 3 Gb/s SDI for high resolution real time 2048 x 1556 feature film editing. 3 Gb/s SDI has full compatibility with SD, HD or 2K in 4:4:4 or 4:2:2
  • Network Router Control: Videohub uses software control panels that run on Windows and Mac OS X. This lets you control the router from the same system you edit on. Videohub connects to any computer via USB and is then shared over your local network.
