Blackmagic Design Videohub 20x20 12G
Advanced 12G-SDI 20x20 zero latency video router with support for any simultaneous combination of SD, HD and Ultra HD, built in control panel with LCD, and SDI re-clocking
Blackmagic Videohub 12G
The new Blackmagic Videohub 12G-SDI video routers let you connect all your equipment without creating a complex cable mess! Blackmagic Videohub routers support 12G-SDI so they allow you to connect and route any combination of SD, HD and Ultra HD on the same router at the same time. Plus they have zero latency so are perfect for live production and broadcast! The design features an elegant front panel with LCD for labels and even live video, shortcut buttons and a machined metal spin knob with soft rubber coating that lets you browse video sources. Ethernet is also included so you can remotely control the router using a range of external hardware or software control panels.
Eliminates Complex Cable Mess
Blackmagic Videohub 12G eliminates cable mess because you can plug all your SDI equipment into the router, then do connections electronically! You don't need complex system diagrams for your studio because you can connect any video input to any video output, or even a single video input to multiple video outputs. This means monitors can view any source in the studio! You get total flexibility to handle constant change or even emergencies. It lets you use multiple HyperDeck recorders for redundant mastering. Or you can route video to multiple streaming processors for all broadcast platforms. Blackmagic Videohub 12G is also great for adding extra inputs to an ATEM switcher!
Videohub 20x20 12G
Blackmagic Videohub 20x20 12G is an advanced zero latency video router that supports any combination of SD, HD and Ultra HD on the router at the same time. It has 20 12G-SDI inputs and 20 12G-SDI outputs plus reference connections in a one rack unit size. The front panel LCD lets you see video before routing and clearly displays routing labels and video standards. Routing can be performed by direct button selection and using the large spin knob control that has an electronic clutch. It also features SDI re-clocking, external Ethernet control and supports all SDI video standards up to 2160p60.
Elegantly Designed Front Panel
The built in front control panel lets you route video, so you get the perfect solution for live production racks that don't have the space for extra hardware panels. The front panel is similar to a Videohub Master Control Pro and it features a spin knob for browsing, direct entry buttons for speed and an LCD for displaying labels. However because the panel is built into the router, you can also see live video on the LCD! The LCD also has menus so it lets you change router settings.
Change Router Crosspoints Visually!
With a built in LCD, Blackmagic Videohub 12G can show you live video of all your router inputs! This means you can see all router inputs as live video before you change a route. There are also labels displayed below the live video to make it easy to identify the input you are viewing. What this means is you can scroll up and down the router sources in alphabetical order and see each input as live video, even if the inputs are different video standards. Imagine scrolling through your connections while viewing them as live video on the LCD! Plus in portable equipment racks where space is limited, the visual routing means you can see video inputs without adding an external SDI monitor.
Advanced 12G-SDI for SD, HD and Ultra HD Routing
All models of Blackmagic Videohub 12G feature advanced 12G-SDI connections which are multi rate so they support any SD, HD and Ultra HD video format up to 2160p60 and will connect to any SD, HD-SDI, 3G-SDI, 6G-SDI and 12G-SDI equipment. Plus Blackmagic Videohub 12G also supports routing any video standard on the same router at the same time. That means on the 40x40 model you could route up to 40 different video standards at the same time! 12G-SDI gives you high frame rate Ultra HD via a single BNC connection that also plugs into all of your regular HD equipment! With 12G-SDI you get a future proof technology that connects to the equipment you have now and in the future!
Features Full SDI Re'Clocking
Videohub includes built in SDI re-clocking on every 12G-SDI input. SDI re-clocking regenerates the video signal for maximum video quality. This is extremely important because longer video cables degrade the signal. Expensive premium "digital" cables can help a little, but still cannot eliminate signal integrity loss due to cable lengths getting longer. With SDI re-clocking all of the SDI devices in your studio receive a regenerated signal with improved jitter performance. That means longer cable lengths, and no drop outs in your video.
Add External Hardware Control Panels
All Blackmagic Videohub routers can be remotely controlled, which is vital in large broadcast studios where the equipment connected to the router is located in different areas of the building. There are 2 different types of hardware panel available. The Videohub Master Control Pro is similar to the front panel and has a spin knob, LCD and shortcut buttons. While the Videohub Smart Control Pro model features all buttons and is generally programmed so the panel controls a single router output with each button programmed to a router input. Then you can just cut along the panel buttons to change the router output instantly. It works best when you install a smart panel below each video monitor!
