Rack frame lets you add up to 72 BNC SDI or optical fiber SDI interfaces plus a single 72 x 72 or dual 288 x 288 crosspoint cards and up to two power cards. Add a single crosspoint for affordability, or add dual crosspoint and power cards for full redundancy. Includes removable fan tray and fans.
Build your own 3 Gb/s SDI
and optical fiber router!
Universal Videohub lets you build your own broadcast quality 3 Gb/s SDI and optical fiber SDI router for SD, HD, 4:4:4 and 2K video formats. Universal Videohub frames come in a choice of two sizes that let you expand your router up to either a 72 x 72 or 288 x 288 crosspoint size. Every interface module in the router is card based, with each card featuring 4 inputs and 4 outputs. Mix and match interfaces and build a router with all SDI, all optical fiber SDI or a combination of both.
