    Blackmagic Design VHUBSMART6G2020 reviews

    Smart Videohub 20 x 20 6G-SDI is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from DOA Mine had rolling green lines of noise across all the even numbered ports (bottom row) that could only be solved by pulling the power and rebooting. This was on a brand new unit, and the problem happened repeatedly. I spoke to a Blackmagic support person who said he'd replace it but their return/exchange process was beyond frustrating so I returned it to BH instead. I'm currently looking for a comparable product from a different manufacturer.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from OK if you don't need long runs HD-SDI is typically rated for coax runs up to 300ft. In fact, all of our equipment seems to work with cables runs at that length. This unit however only works with coax runs less than 150ft. in length. We tried adding repeaters to the line and only were able to increase the distance to around 250 ft. For use in the field, it's hardly practical. We'll be looking elsewhere.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product for the money The build quality of the Smart Videohub 20x20 is pretty decent. It doesn't appear to run too hot and feels solid. The front panel buttons unfortunately are membrane-style buttons and therefore cannot accept custom labels which is a little disappointing for a router this size. This is a basic router that with the right firmware and software upgrades could be great. Currently you must make at least 3 button presses to execute any route. I'm hopeful a future firmware release will allow additional control options like disabling the Take button and setting the default mode to SRC so that one-button routes could be performed. Another feature that would be nice is the ability to make use of the multi-color backlit keys to designate different source/destination formats. But overall this is a great product for the money that can only get better with future upgrades.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wish there was a 12G version of the 20x20 While I work with engineers who use the front panel to route, I'm a fan of managing all my Blackmagic gear over ethernet with a shared spreadsheet for my crew. If you're buying BM gear, you know what you're getting. Manage your expectations, but also remember: they're designing gear for the base, and at this price point, how can you complain? Well one complaint... how about a 2/3 Teranex size router? Next to your 8 way DA, it could be a great 2nd slot in a compact rack.
    Date published: 2017-05-31
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again. We had so much success with our Smart Videohub 40x40 that when the time came we ordered this 20x20 model to replace a different router that was end of life. Install and setup was straightforward. The video monitor on the front is such a cool feature. We're very pleased.
    Date published: 2017-08-29
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use, does what it says. Works fine. No glitches and UI/Program is nice. I do however wish there was more room in between SDI ports. I understand this had 40 SDI ports on the back, but it gets difficult when it starts to fill up.
    Date published: 2018-09-14
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid, Modern Router The Smart Videohub is a solid, modern router with great features at a good price.
