The Blackmagic Design Universal Videohub 72 Kit allows you route and control all of your SDI video feeds within your production studio. The kit comes complete with the Universal Videohub 72, 18 individual SDI Interface cards, Crosspoint card which allows for control and genlock, a 450W Power card which allows you to add additional power supplies, and 2 150W power supplies. Everything you'll need to populate your complete rack frame!
The Blackmagic Design Universal Videohub 72 is a fully scalable 3 Gb/s SDI and deck control router with removable fan tray and fans. Add either regular copper SDI or optical fiber SDI interface cards as you need, up to a 72 x 72 SDI size router. The Universal Videohub 72 rack frame is only 5 RU and 6 inches deep and can support a single 72 x 72 crosspoint card and a single power supply card. With a choice of crosspoint cards, the frame can be easily upgraded using hot swappable regular BNC SDI or optical fiber interface modules that also include full deck control. If you need redundancy, then simply add a second crosspoint card for true 24/7 reliability! All inputs have auto standards detection and all outputs are re-clocked. You also get ethernet and serial connectivity, third party control and redundant power supplies.
Amazing Routing Options
The Universal Videohub is perfect for when you need to route SDI and optical fiber connections. Get incredible 3 Gb/s SDI routing, plus the ability to send and receive video signals over long distances using optical fiber. That's great for use in larger facilities and for large scale events. Route directly from one SDI or optical fiber device to another, from SDI to optical fiber or vice versa. Only the Universal Videohub lets you upgrade to a larger rack frame and protect your investment in interface cards and power supplies!
Modular Interface Cards
Each SDI and optical fiber SDI interface card features 4 inputs and 4 outputs, plus a breakout cable port for deck control. The Universal Videohub Deck Control Cable breaks out to 4 separate RS-422 connections. SDI and optical fiber interface cards also support 16 channels of embedded SDI audio, so all the audio channels in your signal are routed together with the video. For maximum flexibility, interface cards are all the same size and fit both Universal Videohub 72 and Universal Videohub 288, which is great if you need to use an alternative frame size in the future.
