The Blackmagic Design Smart Videohub 12G 40 x 40 is an incredibly advanced model of the Smart Videohub router family with 12G-SDI technology, allowing all SDI video formats up to 2160p60 to be routed all on the same router, all at the same time. Advanced 12G-SDI video router supports any SD, HD or Ultra HD SDI format on the same router at the same time. Smart Videohub 12G 40 x 40 features 40 inputs and 40 outputs and includes video reference, redundant power connections and an elegant machined metal front panel with large full HD LCD for monitoring and routing label display. Routing can be performed by direct button selection and the spin knob controller. 12G-SDI technology supports all SDI video standards up to 2160p60. With broadcasters using high frame rates for fast live action sports, now with the move to Ultra HD underway, broadcasters are also looking to ensure all equipment purchased can support these same frame rates as well as adding Ultra HD support. This means broadcasters can be assured that when they need Ultra HD, they can instantly switch over and all their equipment will support Ultra HD at frame rates up to 60 fps. 12G-SDI is the only video connection standard that allows this while retaining compatibility with existing SD and HD equipment. Smart Videohub 12G has been developed to meet the needs of these broadcasters as it operates identically to other Smart Videohub models however because it includes a native 12G-SDI based design with full SDI re-clocking at 12G-SDI rates, it can handle any SD, HD or Ultra HD video format, all on the same router, all at the same time. A broadcaster can then connect 12G-SDI based equipment and Smart Videohub 12G will route these high speed SDI signals along with all other equipment in the facility.
