Videohub Master Control
Videohub Master Control
For dedicated remote router panels, you can choose between Videohub Smart Control and Videohub Master Control. Both optional panels connect to your network via Ethernet and can control any Videohub model. Videohub Smart Control is ideal for direct cut bus style routing to monitors or decks, while Videohub Master Control gives you full spin knob control and direct label entry with an LCD display to see your router crosspoint labels. You get perfect integration and 24/7 broadcast reliability with Blackmagic Videohub remote panels!
Videohub Master Control allows for very flexible control because it has two main methods for changing cross points on Videohub routers. The simplest way to use Videohub Master Control is for customers to simply select either destination or source and then scroll through all the cross points in the router using the larger knob on the right side of the panel. The built in LCD shows cross points as the user scrolls using large easy to read labels, and scroll order is based on alphabetical order of crosspoint labels so it’s easy to scroll to the crosspoint the customer requires even on a very large router.
It also includes direct entry of cross point labels via built in buttons. These buttons are a combination of customizable buttons as well as numeric buttons. Customers can easily set the customizable buttons to labels such as “Monitor”, “Deck” or “Edit” etc, and then router cross points can be entered in by simply pressing the custom button followed by the number. For example if a customer wanted to enter in the destination “Monitor 3” then they only need to select the customized Monitor button followed by the 3 button. This means Videohub Master Control gives customers full access to very large routers, but is still very fast to use.
Direct entry buttons also allow limiting the scroll list when using the spin knob. For the above example, if the user presses the Monitor button, then the list available to the spin knob would be limited to any cross point labeled Monitor. The user can then type in 3 to select monitor 3 as in the example above, or just scroll through all the monitor labels and select Monitor 3 via the spin knob.
Videohub Master Control also features attractive YRGB illuminated crystal look buttons combined with an attractive color LCD for status and machined aluminum knob for scrolling cross points. This makes Videohub Master Control one of the most attractive router control panels on the market. Blackmagic Design believes that even though routers are generally technical by nature, there is no reason why they have to be ugly to use, and we believe that with the new Videohub Master Control customers will see a dramatic improvement in ease of routing and a more pleasant user experience.
Videohub Master Control has been designed to be easy for customers to self install, it uses standard ethernet networking and simply plugs into the existing computer network. If used in mission critical environments, Videohub Master Control could be connected to a dedicated switch. Videohub Master Control can be powered via power over ethernet (PoE) without the need for a power supply.
