Perfect when you need a bigger router in a small size, such as creative post facilities and broadcast trucks! Compact Videohub includes 40 x 40 SDI routing all packed into a 2 rack unit size! You get auto SD, HD and 3 Gb/s HD-SDI detection, re-clocking, with built in ethernet, USB and serial router control interfaces.
Now you can eliminate complicated manual video patching forever! Videohub lets you connect all the equipment in your facility and easily change connections right from your computer's desktop! Videohub is a powerful broadcast grade routing switcher that features up to a massive 144 inputs, 288 outputs, 144 deck control ports, and auto switching SD, HD, and 3 Gb/s SDI, all in a compact rack mount chassis only a few inches thick.
No Manual Patching!
In the past most studios have been forced to use manual patching to connect editing workstations and decks. However this can become too complicated for creative designers, graphic artists and editors to understand, plus it gets even more complicated as your studio grows. Manual patching also caused problems with limited SDI cable lengths, and patch cables quickly wear out, so you get glitches as other users bump them while 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. Unlike manual patching, Videohub re-clocks the SDI video signal for long cable lengths. Plus unlike manual patching, you can send one SDI video connection to as many outputs as you like, so multiple people can access any SDI video source, all at the same time. High end post production and broadcasters have understood the advantages of professional routing switchers for decades, and now with Videohub, everyone can afford these same workflow advantages.
Industrial Strength Routing Switcher
Blackmagic Design's Videohub routers are not only based on a revolutionary design but they also have the most advanced electronics technology available today. 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, Videohub routers are true broadcast quality.
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, however simply cannot eliminate this loss. With SDI re-clocking you can have a regenerated and clean SDI signal out to all the SDI devices in your studio. That means longer cable lengths, and no glitches in your video.
World's Highest Quality 3 Gb/s SDI
With 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 all with a single BNC cable. With 3 Gb/s SDI built in, you have full compatibility with all your current SD-SDI and HD-SDI equipment, plus any new formats that come along in the future.
World's Greatest Router Control
If you hate the high cost of router control panels, then you'll love Videohub because we include free software for Mac and Windows computers with incredible icon buttons! Videohub software looks fantastic, and when used on new touch screen all in one computers, you get a fantastic large screen XY control panel! We even have a new software control panel for Apple iPad computers, that lets you use your iPad as a fantastic low cost touch screen XY router panel.
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, so it's easy to connect edit stations or decks to any of the deck control ports.
Network Router Control
Videohub connects to any computer via USB and is then shared over your local network. Any computer can be the host by simply connecting to the router via the USB 2.0 connection, which activates that computer as the host and allows other computers on your network to connect. Router labels can be changed from any computer and are fully unicode compatible for foreign language support.
Simultaneous SD, HD or 3 Gb/s
Videohub makes it easy to run SD and HD equipment 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 simultaneously. Videohub auto detects when an SDI input changes, and instantly sets all SDI outputs connected to that input to match. SDI re-clocking and output SDI slew rates change automatically.

Why People Like You Chose Powermax
I just wanted to say thanks for taking the time to CALL me after you were unable to reach me via e-mail yesterday. I am glad that you contacted me when you discovered that the mouse that I ordered was no longer available in the color that I wanted and am very impressed with the personal approach that you and PowerMax have taken even though PowerMax is an online vendor. Even though I was not able to purchase from PowerMax on this occasion, I will certainly buy from you in the future. It's nice to see that there are still people out there that care about their customers.

BIG kudos to your company for shipping to APOs. I love Apple and all their products, but their lack of support to Service Members deployed and stationed overseas has been a sore point with me for a long time!!! It is refreshing to find a company that understands that Soldiers in Iraq (and Afghanistan, and Germany, and Japan, etc.) deserve easy access to Macs as well as anyone else.
- Thank you for your help.
- Balad, Iraq
I received the display and the last tablet today, thank you. Your service has been great; I appreciate you taking an interest in my new business, and will certainly have more purchase orders for you in the future.
