Perfect for Portable Use
Broadcast grade routing that's easy 

Smart Videohub is perfect for broadcast, post or live production! Smart Videohub’s super compact size means its perfect for use in large broadcast systems or portable mini racks for live production where cameras, switchers, recording and monitors are all simply connected to Smart Videohub. Now you can avoid messy rewiring because you can connect everything to the router and then quickly change connections from job to job without reconnecting a single cable!

Visual Routing
Route your video by looking at it!

Scan through video at lightning speed! Smart Videohub's super fast spin knob control lets you dial though your router cross points while displaying live video combined with custom on screen labels. Scroll order is arranged alphabetically so it’s easy to find the crosspoint you are looking for! The spin knob control combined with visual routing is the fastest way to route! Imagine scrolling through your connections while viewing them as live video on the LCD! On screen labels support unicode so they work in non Roman character sets such as Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Russian, German, French, Spanish and more. That means if you have labels in Japanese it will appear on the front panel in Japanese exactly the same as it appears on the software control panel on your computer.

Control Knob
Built in Video Monitoring!
Built in video, label and format monitoring!

Now you can monitor all the live video connected to your Videohub. The built in LCD lets you see your video in virtually every TV format! That means you don't need a separate external monitor because its built into the front panel of the router itself! You can look at any source or destination and confirm the correct video inputs are being sent to the correct video outputs. Built in monitoring is perfect when space is tight, such as mini racks and broadcast trucks.
