a developer SDK!
Videohub routers have more control options so you can select the
best for your facility! We include free Videohub software thats
runs on any computer, so you can change routing directly from
your editing or design system! If you're looking for an
incredible pushbutton XY type panel, then nothing beats using a

Videohub software Pushbutton view. Pushbutton view includes
picture icons of popular television equipment and is attractive
and fast to use. For the ultimate hardware control panels,
Videohub Smart Control allows push button routing for each one
of your decks and monitors, for single button routing all over
your facility! We even have a free developer SDK so you can

Route From Your
With so much post production equipment based on desktop
computers these days, the best place to control your router is
right from your desktop. All Videohub models include free
software so you can simply install on your Windows or Mac, and
get an incredibly attractive icon based router control panel.
You can install on as many computers as you like! The Pushbutton
view allows you to see images in the buttons of common video
equipment. To use it you simply select a destination, and then
select from a range of video sources. All buttons can be
customized to any router source or destination, and you can also
select from a range of icon images. If you want the most
incredible XY control panel, then Pushbutton view looks
fantastic when installed on a dedicated all in one computer with
touch screen such as a HP TouchSmart, and now all routing can be
done by pressing buttons directly on screen! You can have
virtually unlimited sources and destinations because it's easy
to page through multiple screens of buttons!
When you are working in larger facilities with rack mounted
equipment then you need a serious hardware based control panel!
Videohub Smart Control is different to traditional hardware
router control panels because it's low cost so it's easy to add
Videohub Smart Control under all your equipment! You get 40
crystal look YRGB illuminated buttons that can be set to any
router output. To set the input to any SDI equipment now just
requires a single button press! Once pressed, the input set for
that button is instantly routed to the router output set for the
Videohub Smart Control. You can set buttons to any router input,
just by using the simple Windows and Mac software! Imagine
having an elegant router panel below each of your monitors or
decks, and then selecting the input with a single button press!
There is simply no faster way to use an SDI routing switcher!
Easy to Use
Videohub Smart Control is incredibly easy to use! For example,
if you installed Videohub Smart Control under a monitor, then
the output of the router that is connected to that monitor can
be set to a different router source each time a different button
is pressed. Now you get a "cut-bus" type router control, and you
just select between a range of router inputs by pressing
buttons. It's easy to browse through equipment in your facility
by pressing buttons and the monitor just changes to that source!
It's so easy to use! Simply install under decks so you can set
the deck's SDI input the same way. Using Videohub Smart Control
installed with all your equipment makes routing fast!
Videohub Smart Control allows multiple destinations, and it's
easy to 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
colored and you can select as many destinations as you need!
Videohub Smart Control also allows you to set up a "take"
button, and when enabled, the take button is the lower right
button, and illuminated red. Multiple destinations and the take
button feature mean you can use a single Videohub Smart Control
with multiple SDI devices connected to the router, and
dramatically lowers the cost!
Router control panels don't need to be ugly, and Videohub Smart
Control has been designed to fit into the most creative post
production facilities and broadcasters! You get attractive
crystal look buttons that are illuminated by both RGB and white
LEDs so that a wider range of rich and clean colors can be
displayed. The front panel can be unscrewed and slid off so
labels can be inserted under the buttons. We even include Adobe
Illustrator™ files with crop marks that you can use as templates
to generate labels! All buttons can be variably backlit so you
can always read button labels even in dark rooms! Videohub Smart
Control uses only a single rack unit and is less than an inch
Easy to Install
No router panel is so easy to install! You can customize the
router source that's assigned to each button using the easy to
use Windows and Mac software included with each Videohub Smart
Control. To setup the panel, just connect to the built in USB
connection and then run the software! You can select where the
Videohub is on your network, as well as how many destinations
you want on the panel. You can even select the backlighting
brightness, as well as if you want a "take" button.
Videohub Smart Control uses standard ethernet networking to
simply plug into the existing computer network. If you want to
use your Videohub in mission critical environments, you can
simply connect Videohub Smart Control panels to routers via a
dedicated ethernet switch. Videohub Smart Control features power
over ethernet so if used with an ethernet switch that includes
power over ethernet support, then no power supply is required.
For non powered ethernet switches, we also included a power
supply with international power socket adapters. Videohub Smart
Control also includes loop through ethernet connections, perfect
for looping to other control panels or computers!
