Description

OverviewKey FeaturesSpecifications
The Blackmagic Design Compact Videohub is a broadcast routing switcher that allows connections and switching between all your video equipment via a desktop software interface.
You are provided with 40 x 40 SDI routing with automatic switching between video connections and re-clocking of SDI signals to adapt to long cable lengths. Inclusion of redundant power supplies, power fail protection, and a unified reliable single PCB construction allows you to connect even the most distant equipment together via the Compact Videohub.
Incorporating the capability to handle 3 GB/s SDI connections, the Compact Videohub supports double the data rate as compared to normal HD-SDI, thus allowing you to undertake real time 2048 x 1556 feature film editing. You can use the videohub for standard definition and high definition equipment, and ensure future compatibility via the integration of 3 GB/s SDI feature owing to its capability to handle mixed SD, HD, and 3 GB/s SDI connections simultaneously. You can use the videohub for SD, HD, or 2K formats in 4:4:4 or 4:2:2 via a single BNC cable.
You are also provided with built-in Ethernet, USB, and Serial Router Control interfaces. The Compact Videohub comes with Mac/Windows compatible icon-based software that allows you to effortlessly control and switch video connections.
