Videohub Smart Control Now Shipping

A manufacturer of video technology products, including the DeckLink popular uncompressed capture cards, is now shipping Videohub Smart Control.
Launched by Blackmagic Design, Videohub Smart Control is a new style of router control panel that's designed to be lower cost and to distribute router control throughout television facilities for faster and workflow.
Videohub Smart Control is different to traditional hardware router control panels that cost thousands of dollars and are limited to being installed in small numbers and then shared by all router users. Videohub Smart Control features 40 YRGB illuminated crystal look buttons that can be set to any router output. Videohub Smart Control can be installed under each deck and monitor in a facility, so the router output to that monitor can be set with a single button press.
Videohub Smart Control can also be used with multiple destinations, and customers can select to have a single destination for the whole control panel, or multiple destinations. When working with multiple destinations, buttons on the front panel become gold coloured and customers can select as many destinations as they need. Videohub Smart Control also allows the use of a "take" button, and when enabled, the take button is the lower right button, and illuminated red. Multiple destinations and the take button feature allow a single panel to be used for multiple devices connected to the router, and lowers the cost in large facilities.
Videohub Smart Control uses standard ethernet networking and simply plugs into the existing computer network. If used in mission critical environments, Videohub Smart Control could be connected to a dedicated switch. Videohub Smart Control can be powered via power over ethernet (PoE) without the need for a power supply.
Because Videohub Smart Control has been designed to fit into creative post production facilities, it includes attractive crystal look buttons that are designed for high reliability. The front panel can be removed to allow labeling of buttons. For world’s best illumination quality, all buttons are illuminated by both RGB and white LEDs so that a wider range of rich and clean colours can be displayed. When used in dark rooms, all buttons can be backlit, so button labels can be clearly seen.
Videohub Smart Control is now available from Blackmagic Design distributors worldwide. For more information, please visit: blackmagic-design.com
