The Blackmagic Design Videohub Smart Control is a control panel that manages the source and destination of the router, allows the user to simply control router output to monitor with a single press of a button.

40 programmable YRGB illuminated buttons that sit on the front panel of the Videohub Smart Control can be removed to allow labelling, as well as being backlit when used as part of a darkroom set up. Each of the Blackmagic Design Videohub Smart Control’s buttons can easily be custom set with the help of USB connection and easy-to-use Mac and Windows software. These programmable buttons, and RJ-45 ethernet, can be used to remote control routers across an entire network.

It’s possible to select a single destination for the whole control panel, or multiple thanks to the smart control button. For multiple destinations, the front panel buttons transform to a golden colour. Similarly, buttons illuminated by RGB and white LED lights offer a wide range of rich and clean colours.

The Blackmagic Design Videohub Smart Control’s Ethernet is dual purpose. It can be used to connect to a pre-existing computer network or to supply power to the Videohub Smart Control through the network itself, reducing extra cable requirements.
