The Blackmagic Design Smart Videohub 12x12 is an advanced Ultra HD mixed format router with a built in control panel and monitoring. 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 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. Also includes Ethernet for remote control and a fully customizable software development kit for Mac and Windows.
The control panel includes buttons to direct select a crosspoint, a spin knob for scrolling router cross points as well as a "take" button. The LCD screen can display nice large labels and the routers include over 10,000 separate unicode characters so they can handle non roman labels such as Japanese, Chinese and more. The LCD screen can also display video from the video inputs or even outputs. This feature is called "visual routing" and it allows you to scroll through the router destinations or sources and see the connections as video on the LCD screen as the labels updates. It's really fun to use!
Please Note: A Universal Videohub Power Supply, part number VHUBUV-POWSUP800, is required when building a fully loaded router with mixed optical fiber and BNC SDI modules. Sold seperately.
