Blackmagic Design VHUBUV/288CH Universal Videohub 288 rack only. Fully Scalable 3G/HD/SD Router.
Modular Multi-format Routing Matrix with up-to 288 I/O
Build your own router with Universal Videohub 288!
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!
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!
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 cross point card and power supply cards from the Universal Videohub 72 can be plugged into the Universal Videohub 288. Only Universal Videohub lets you upgrade to a larger rack frame and keep their entire investment in interface cards and power supplies!
