Product Description

Details

The Blackmagic Design Smart Videohub 20x20 is a larger advanced Ultra HD mixed format router with a built in control panel that manages the source and destination of the router, allowing the user to simply control router output to monitor with a single press of a button. Ideal for larger workgroups and mobile broadcasting, it includes advanced 6G-SDI connections so you can simultaneously connect and route any combination of SD, HD and Ultra HD video all the way up to 2160p60 on the same router at the same time. You also get revolutionary new visual routing with the unique spin knob control, push button panel and the built in LCD screen.

Smart Videohub’s super compact size means it's perfect for use in large broadcast systems or portable mini racks for live production. Simply connect cameras, switchers, recording and monitors to Smart Videohub as part of a broadcast, post or live production set up. Connect everything to the router and then quickly change connections from job to job without reconnecting a single cable – messy rewiring is now a thing of the past.

Blackmagic Design’s Smart Videohub is built from beautiful machined aluminium, its design features pioneering video monitoring control. Now you can visually route video because the built in monitor displays live video, crosspoint connection labels and TV formats simultaneously. Switch video with the dedicated button panel or make selections with the spin knob. The Smart Videohub 20x20 delivers this inspirational new control panel, built in power supply, network control and advanced 6G-SDI connections in a compact design. It’s also possible to configure all IP settings on the front of the unit without a computer.

The Smart Videohub features 6G-SDI connections for compatibility with standard frame rate Ultra HD video while retaining full compatibility with all of your SD and HD-SDI equipment. Get the perfect quality of SDI video connections with the flexibility to work in any television format you like, as well as 4:2:2 or 4:4:4 colour sampling. Even if you’re not running in Ultra HD now, you can still work in SD or HD today and be future proof for Ultra HD when the time comes.
