The Studio Videohub Router from Blackmagic Design is a solution designed to eliminate complicated, manual video patching by allowing you to connect all your equipment to a single router controlled via software. This unit is a broadcast-grade routing switcher that features (16) inputs, (32) outputs, and (16) deck control ports. It supports auto-switching with SD, HD, and 3Gbps SDI. The chassis can be mounted in a standard 19" equipment rack and its slimline profile is only several inches deep.
Eliminate Manual Patching
Use this solution to avoid the need for manual patching by routing all your equipment through a single hub and controlling connections via a software panel.
Features such as signal reclocking and redundant power supplies make this an industrial solution.
SDI reclockers are included on each SDI input, thereby eliminating signal degradation that occurs in cabling and allowing for longer transmission distances.
Support Up to 3Gbs SDI
Support up for up to 3Gbps HD-SDI allows for increased data-transfer speeds without sacrificing backwards compatibility with SD/HD-SDI signals.
Independent SDI outputs allow for totally dedicated monitoring direct from the router
Deck Control Routing
Independent Sony RS-422 control ports allow each editing system in your facility to control any deck.
Network Router Control
A software control panel that runs on Windows or Mac systems allows you to control the router from the same system you use to edit. This solution connects via a USB port and can be shared over a local network.
