Build it yourself
Universal videohub ships unpopulated, without any cards plugged in, so you are free to build your router any way you want! For example, you can plug in BNC SDI cards and optical fibre SDI cards in any combination depending on the equipment you have.This makes it easy to partially load SDI interface cards, to start at an affordable size, and then add more SDI interface cards over time to grow to a massive 288 x 288 size.To make scalability even easier, the crospoint cards and power supply cards from the Universal Videohub 72 can be plugged into the Universal Videohub 288.

24/7 Broadcast Reliability
Universal Videohub is the router you need for true 24/7 reliability because its card based design lets every electronic component be easily replaced in the rare event of a failure. Universal Videohub has no electric components on the motherboard and all electronics can be hot swapped with replacements in case of failure, or when upgrading. Universal Videohub 288 even includes an extra slot for a redundant crosspoint and power supply. In case of failure, the crosspoint will instantly change over allowing continuous operation.

True Multi Fault Redundancy
Universal Videohub 288 also offers true multiple fault redundancy, where different faults in both crosspoint cards can be handled. In the rare event of multiple faults occuring in both crosspoint cards, Universal Videohub 288 automatically detects and combines the still functioning parts of both crosspoint cards together to keep the router running. That's true multiple fault tolerance, unique to Universal Videohub, and eliminates any situation where a faulty crosspoint can go unnoticed and then be unavailable if the main crosspoint fails.

World#s Highest Quality 3Gb/s SDI
With new 3Gb/s SDI connections built in, Videohub allows twice the SDI data rate than normal HD-SDI. Use 3GB/s SDI for high resolution real-time 2048 x 1556 feature film editing. 3Gb/s SDI has full compatability with SD, HD or 2K in 4:4:4 or 4:2 all with a single BNC cable. With 3Gb/s SDI built in, you have full compatibility with all your current standard definintion SDI and high definition SDI equipment, plus any future formats.
