Routing Switcher

Smart Videohub 12×12 is the world’s most advanced Ultra HD mixed format router with built in control panel and monitoring. Ideal for small workgroups and fly away kits, it includes advanced 6G-SDI connections so you can simultaneously connect and route any combination of SD, HD and Ultra HD video all on the same router at the same time. Also you get revolutionary new visual routing with the unique spin knob control, push button panel and the built in LCD screen. The Smart Videohub also includes Ethernet for remote control and a fully customizable software development kit for Mac and Windows.

Once you’ve used routing in your studio you’ll never look back. Manual patching is messy and can be confusing. Using the Smart Videohub 12×12 for routing saves you time and lets you share resources by connecting everything in your studio at the highest possible quality, with simple and fast controls. You get instant connections between all of your equipment, and can even send the same signal to multiple destinations at the same time. That would be impossible with a manual patch bay.
