Broadcast Videohub lets you connect all the equipment in your facility and easily change connections from your computerís desktop. Broadcast Videohub is a powerful broadcast grade routing switcher that features a massive 72 inputs, 144 outputs, 72 deck control ports, and auto switching SD, HD, and 3 Gb/s SDI, all in a compact rack mount chassis only a few inches thick.
Industrial Strength Routing Switcher
With 72 inputs and 144 outputs, Broadcast Videohub is big enough to grow with your company. Broadcast Videohub has enough SDI connections for 72 edit systems or decks, and twice as many SDI outputs, so each user can have a completely independent SDI output for monitoring. 72 deck control ports are also included so you get a complete routing solution.
Broadcast Videohub also includes built in SDI re-clockers on each SDI input which regenerate the SDI video signal. Every inch of video cable from your SDI video devices degrades the SDI signal. Expensive premium grade "digital" cables can help, however simply cannot eliminate this loss. With SDI re-clocking you can output regenerated and clean SDI signal out to all the SDI devices in your studio. That means longer cable lengths, and no glitches in your video.
Simultaneous SD, HD or 3 Gb/s Video
Broadcast Videohub makes it easy to run Standard Definition and High Definition equipment now and add 3 Gb/s SDI equipment in the future. That's because Broadcast Videohub handles mixed SD, HD and 3 Gb/s SDI connections all on the same router at the same time. Broadcast Videohub automatically detects when an SDI input changes, and instantly sets all SDI outputs connected to that input to match. SDI re-clocking and output SDI slew rates change automatically.
Because most editors love monitoring direct from the router, Broadcast Videohub has 72 independent SDI outputs totally dedicated for monitoring. Independent monitoring outputs are great when you need to quickly look at decks and other editing systems in your facility. You can also use the extra outputs to connect consumer VHS and DVD recorders via external converters.
Deck Control Routing
With 72 independent Sonyô compatible RS-422 serial control ports included, each editing system can control any deck in your facility. Each deck control connection is independently reversible via software control, so itís easy to connect edit stations or decks to any of the 72 deck control ports.
Worldís Highest Quality 3 Gb/s SDI
With the exciting new 3 Gb/s SDI connections built in, Broadcast Videohub allows twice the SDI data rate than normal HD-SDI. Use 3 Gb/s SDI for high resolution real time 2048 x 1556 feature film editing. 3 Gb/s SDI has full compatibility with SD, HD or 2K in 4:4:4 or 4:2:2 all with a single BNC cable. With 3 Gb/s SDI built in, you have full compatibility with all your current standard definition SDI and high definition SDI equpment, plus any new formats that come along in the future. With Broadcast Videohub, your studio is future proof.
Network Router Control
Broadcast Videohub uses software control panels that run on Windowsô and Mac OS Xô. This lets you control the router from the same system you edit on. Broadcast Videohub connects to any computer via USB and is then shared over your local network. Any computer can be the host, and simply connecting to the router via the USB 2.0 connection activates that computer as the host and allows other computers on your network to connect. Router labels can be changed from any computer and are fully unicode compatible for foreign language support
72 independent dual rate switchable SDI inputs compatible with both HD-SDI or Standard Definition SDI
144 independent dual rate switchable SDI outputs compatible with both HD-SDI or Standard Definition SDI. 12 outputs for decks and editing stations and 12 outputs dedicated for monitoring and dubbing
Inputs and outputs compliant with SMPTE 292M, SMPTE 259M and ITU-R BT.656
Automatically selects between HD-SDI and Standard Definition SDI. If input video standard changes, any outputs routed from that input match the input standard automatically. Allows simultaneous connection of both High Definition and Standard Definition equipment in you facility using the one router
Any input can be routed to any of the 144 SDI video outputs
Router input, output, control and monitoring outputs are grouped in simplte to understand layout so non technical users can easily connect decks and edit stations
Real time video processor built in with 2 additional independent inputs and outputs on router. Future software updates for down conversion, mixing and logo keying possible
12 Independent Sonyô compatible RS-422 serial contorl ports. Each port independently reversible via software control to allow broadcast decks or editing workstations to be connected to any port
Serial control ports can be independently routed from video connections
Full SDI reclocking supported allowing full SDI cable lengths on both inputs and outputs without data errors
Reclocking automatically detects between HD-SDI or Standard Definition SDI video
