Blackmagic Universal Videohub VHUBUV/72XP 72 is a fully scalable 3 Gb/s SDI and deck control router. Add either regular copper SDI or optical fiber SDI interface cards as you need, up to a 72 x 72 SDI size router. The Universal Videohub 72 rack frame is only 5 RU and 6 inches deep and can support a single 72 x 72 crosspoint card and a single power supply card. The Universal Videohub 288 is the ultimate 3 Gb/s SDI and deck control router. With a choice of 72 x 72 or 288 x 288 crosspoint cards, the frame can be easily upgraded using hot swappable regular BNC SDI or optical fiber interface modules that also include full deck control. If you need redundancy then simply add a second crosspoint card for true 24/7 reliability! All inputs have auto standards detection and all outputs are re-clocked. Universal Videohub 288 features an 18 rack unit frame that is less than 6 inches deep. You also get ethernet and serial connectivity, third party control and redundant power supplies!
