SD, HD and Ultra HD!
Be ready for the latest Ultra HD equipment! Smart Videohub models feature advanced 6G-SDI connections for Ultra HD video that are also compatible with standard definition and high definition SDI equipment. That means you can connect virtually any device used in television production, even old standard definition tape machines that are over 20 years old! You can even convert analog equipment to SDI by connecting the popular Blackmagic Mini Converters to your Smart Videohub. That means even the oldest as well as the newest broadcast equipment can be connected everywhere in your facility, all on the same router at the same time!
Connect Your Workstations
Share broadcast displays and decks!
Perfect for broadcast creative departments, Smart Videohub lets multiple users share expensive equipment like broadcast decks or large presentation screens. You can use Smart Videohub in your editing or color grading suites to monitor your output, then switch to monitor the VTR when mastering out to tape. Smart Videohub makes it easy to share all your equipment from anywhere in your studio with the touch of a button!
Incredibly compact design!
The amazing space saving design of Smart Videohub 20 x 20 fits all 40 SDI connections into 1RU, perfect for small studios or OB vans with limited rack space. You can connect your switcher, all of your cameras, decks, and monitoring equipment, and still have spare cross points for unexpected feeds on location. That means you can instantly change setups from job to job without recabling! No other router gives you more connections in a single rack unit design!
Expand your switcher with more inputs!
Sometimes you have more camera sources than your switcher has inputs. You can connect your cameras to a Videohub before routing them to the switcher to massively increase the available inputs for your live production. That means you can create a much larger live production switcher, or you can even use Videohub to connect two ATEM switchers together to create an even bigger switcher!
The innovative design of Smart Videohub combines front panel controls and built in monitoring to give you all new, revolutionary Visual Routing capabilities! Use the spin knob to quickly scroll through all of your SD, HD, and Ultra HD sources. It’s the fastest and most accurate way route video! As you spin the knob, video is instantly displayed on the built in LCD, along with source labels, format, and frame rate information. Visual Routing lets you route video quickly and more confidently than ever before!
