New price for Blackmagic Compact Videohub

Blackmagic Design has lowered the price of its Compact Videohub to €3,325 ($2,995). Compact Videohub features 3 Gb/s SDI, ASI, auto switching SD, HD and 3 Gb/s SDI formats, full SDI re-clocking, USB, redundant power inputs, ethernet, and serial router control. It is two rack units and less than an inch deep. Compact Videohub includes more control interfaces such as USB, as well as direct ethernet and RS-422 serial interfaces. Direct ethernet router control allows direct connection to a computer network for control. Ethernet control is fully compatible with Blackmagic Design’s range of software control panels, Videohub Smart Control and Videohub Master Control hardware control panels, and the software-based Videohub Control for Apple iPad. “We designed the Compact Videohub to be the worlds largest 3 Gb/s SDI router that’s possible to fit into a impossibly small two rack unit size, while still being affordable for everyone,” said Grant Petty, CEO, Blackmagic Design. “Now, with this new affordable price, Compact Videohub is now available to smaller studios on the tightest budgets. Unlike other low cost solutions, with Compact Videohub customers get all the professional features they need without any limitations!”
