The Blackmagic Design Videohub Smart Control Pro is different to traditional hardware router control panels that cost thousands of dollars and are limited to being installed in small numbers, then shared by all router users. Videohub Smart Control Pro is low cost, and features 48 RGB illuminated crystal look buttons that can be set to any router output. Videohub Smart Control Pro can be installed under each deck and monitor in a facility, so the router output to that monitor can be set with a single button press. This is a much faster way of working, because all routing only requires a single button press.
For example, if a Videohub Smart Control Pro is installed under a monitor, then the router output connected to that monitor can be set to a different router source with each button press. Videohub Smart Control Pro includes a USB connection and easy to use Mac and Windows software to set each button. Buttons are illuminated brilliant white.
The BMD Videohub Smart Control Pro can also be used with multiple destinations, and customers can select to have a single destination for the whole control panel, or multiple destinations. When working with multiple destinations, buttons on the front panel become gold colored and customers can select as many destinations as they need. Videohub Smart Control Pro also allows the use of a "take" button, and when enabled, the take button is the lower right button, and illuminated red. Multiple destinations and the take button feature allow a single panel to be used for multiple devices connected to the router, and dramatically lowers the cost in large facilities.
