Customizable rack frame that lets you build the ultimate 3G/HD/SD deck control routing switcher.
Universal Videohub lets you build your own broadcast quality 3 Gb/s SDI and optical fiber SDI router for SD, HD, 4:4:4 and 2K video formats. Universal Videohub frames come in a choice of two sizes that let you expand your router up to either a 72 x 72 or 288 x 288 crosspoint size. Every interface module in the router is card based, with each card featuring 4 inputs and 4 outputs. Mix and match interfaces and build a router with all SDI, all optical fiber SDI or a combination of both.
Amazing Routing Options
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 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.
