Description

Build your own router with Universal Videohub!
If you're looking for true redundancy and the ability to build your own router with both BNC SDI and optical fiber SDI, then Universal Videohub is the perfect choice. Universal Videohub comes in two models for a maximum 72 x 72 or 288 x 288 crosspoint size, and because every module in the router is card based, you can mix and match components to get the router you need, and hot swap cards in the unlikely event of failure!Universal Videohub includes powerful features such as SD, HD and 3 Gb/s SDI auto-switching, built in deck control ports, and ethernet and serial crosspoint control. The larger Universal Videohub 288 model supports dual crosspoint and power supply cards for full redundancy. With Universal Videohub, you get flexibility, quality and redundancy, all at an incredibly affordable price!

Build it Yourself!
Universal Videohub ships unpopulated, without any cards plugged in, so you are free to build your router any way you want! For example, you can plug in BNC SDI cards and optical fiber SDI cards in any combination depending on the equipment you have. This makes it easy to partially load SDI interface cards, to start at an affordable size, and then add more SDI interface cards over time to grow to a massive 288 x 288 size! To make scalability even easier, the crosspoint card and power supply cards from the Universal Videohub 72 can be plugged into the Universal Videohub 288.

24/7 Broadcast Reliability
Universal Videohub is the router you need for true 24/7 reliability because its card based design lets every electronic component be easily replaced in the rare event of failure. Universal Videohub has no electronic components on the motherboard and all electronics can be hot swapped with replacements in case of failure, or when upgrading. Universal Videohub 288 even includes an extra slot for a redundant crosspoint and power supply. In case of failure, the crosspoint will instantly change over allowing continuous operation.

True Multi Fault Redundancy
Universal Videohub 288 also offers true multiple fault redundancy, where different faults in both crosspoint cards can be handled. In the rare event of multiple faults occurring in both crosspoint cards, Universal Videohub 288 automatically detects and combines the still functioning parts of both crosspoint cards together to keep the router running. That's true multiple fault tolerance, unique to Universal Videohub, and eliminates any situation where a faulty crosspoint can go unnoticed and then be unavailable if the main crosspoint fails.

World's Highest Quality 3 Gb/s SDI
With new 3 Gb/s SDI connections built in, 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 equipment, plus any future formats.

Custom Control via SDK
If you want to integrate Videohub into large facilities with other routing, or even do your own innovative custom control, then our free Videohub SDK lets you add new protocols, new control panels, or any other custom control you like. Now all Videohub routers can be integrated into any broadcast facility or custom system! Videohub SDK includes all libraries, documentation and full sample code. Videohub SDK is available for download now!

SDI Re-Clocking
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 have a regenerated and clean SDI signal out to all the SDI devices in your studio.


Universal Videohub 72 or 288
Universal Videohub 72 is a fully scalable 3G/HD/SD and deck control routing switcher. 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.The Universal Videohub 288 is the ultimate 3G/HD/SD and deck control routing switcher. With a choice of 72 x 72 or 288 x 288 crosspoint cards, the frame can be easily upgraded using our 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. Universal Videohub 288 features an 18 rack unit frame that is less than 6 inches deep. You also get ethernet and serial connectivity, third party control and redundant power supplies. Universal Videohub 288 lets you start small for an affordable cost and then expand its size and even add full redundancy as your needs grow!
