Blackmagic Design Updates Videohub Software

A leading company specialising in video editing products, color correctors and film restoration software for the feature film and broadcast industries, has announced a major new update for all its Videohub SDI routers.
Blackmagic Design has launched the new Videohub 4.2 software update which features a new design, new multipage view, more equipment icons and a software development kit to let any developer write custom software for Videohub routers.
Blackmagic customers who enjoy the powerful broadcast quality of Videohub routers, will love the new updated design of the Videohub user interface with its new elegant look and feel.
The new software update also introduces a new multipage view where users can swap whole pages of buttons for a massive 550 sources and 110 destinations. This feature makes it even easier to have many more buttons for sources and destinations.
The new buttons now have more icon types to represent common post production equipment.
Another common request from developers, system integrators and broadcasters has been to allow custom programming for all Videohub routers. This new software update introduces an easy to use Software Developer Kit (SDK) so custom programming for all Blackmagic Videohub routers is now extremely easy.
This new SDK is free of charge and includes full documentation. By using the new SDK, any developer can now easily add extra protocol support for integration into other large routing infrastructures.
In addition to system integrators who are building custom video systems, it’s now possible to design custom interfaces, web interfaces or interfaces to custom hardware with all Videohub routers. Blackmagic Design’s new Videohub SDK supports industry standard C++ and includes all libraries and software sample code.
Grant Petty, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Blackmagic Design commented: "Both creative and engineering customers can now have the freedom to use the Videohub software, or write their own customised control software to suit their workflows. With this update, I think Videohub is the easiest to use SDI routers for broadcasters and post houses."
