Compact Design

Smart Videohub's beautiful machined aluminum design features new innovative video monitoring control. Now you can visually route video because the built in monitor lets you see live video, crosspoint connection labels and TV formats displayed simultaneously. You can make selections with the spin knob or switch video with the dedicated button panel. Choose from three incredible models! The Smart Videohub 12x12, 20x20 and 40x40 all feature the amazing new control panel, built in power supply, network control and advanced 6G-SDI connections in a compact design. You can even configure all IP settings on the front of the unit without a computer!

Visual Routing

Scan through video at lightning speed! Smart Videohub's super fast spin knob control lets you dial though your router cross points while displaying live video combined with custom on screen labels. Scroll order is arranged alphabetically so it’s easy to find the crosspoint you are looking for! The spin knob control combined with visual routing is the fastest way to route! Imagine scrolling through your connections while viewing them as live video on the LCD! On screen labels support unicode so they work in non Roman character sets such as Chinese, Japanese, Russian, German, French, Spanish and more. That means if you have labels in Japanese it will appear on the front panel in Japanese exactly the same as it appears on the software control panel on your computer.
