The Smart Videohub 12G 40x40 is the most advanced router of the Videohub series. It works in all SD, HD, and Ultra HD formats up to 2160p60. Offering a revolutionary routing process, the mixed format router has built-in video monitoring and spin knob router control.

You get an extremely convenient routing process with visual routing. Router connections are shown as video on the LCD screen while you spin the knob to select your routing. Built-in monitor also displays crosspoint connection labels and TV formats. Visual routing makes the routing process faster than ever.

Monitor all the live video connected to the Smart Videohub 12G 40x40 from the LCD screen. LCD supports video in nearly all TV formats, eliminating the need for a separate external monitor. Monitoring from the Videohub is helpful to confirm the correct video inputs are being sent to the correct video outputs.

12G-SDI connections run at twice the speed of 6G-SDI, supporting equipment that works with high frame rate Ultra HD 2160p60. At that high frame rate you can use the same 60 fps workflow from HD while getting the higher quality of Ultra HD. 12G-SDI also handles SD, HD, and Ultra HD formats easily. 6G-SDI is still supported, so you get the benefits of both technologies.

Multi format technology supports connecting compatible equipment to the router simultaneously. Seamlessly work in NTSC and PAL SD, 720, 1080HD, even 2160 Ultra HD at any frame rate and the router switches standards so inputs match.

Free software developer kit gives you the power to create your own custom router control. The included external software control lets you control the router via network on Mac and Windows. Hardware control panels are available with the Videohub Smart Control Pro and Videohub Master Control Pro (both sold separately). RS-422 protocol can also be used to control Videohub for router crosspoint switching.
