Studio Videohub - Can someone confirm the routing of the outputs
on Dec 1, 2011 at 11:56:15 pm

The Studio Videohub until very recently was marketed as 16 x 32 router but is now being marketed as a 16 input, 32 output router.

Can I assume that the outputs are not INDIVIDUALLY routable and in fact route in pairs?

So more like a 16 x 16 x 2 router.

Hope this makes sense. Trying to decide on the 16 x 16 or the 40 x 40 if the Studio is NOT a true 16 x 32.

it is 16 input and 32 output.
The design is based on having eg 16 rooms that each feed the router and 2 feeds back to each room as 1 for input to the NLE and 1 for the room monitor.

this is a true 16x32 router. You can assign any of the 16 inputs to any of the 32 outputs independently. Output 1 and Output 17 (the "matching pair" for the first group) are completely independent of each other and you can assign anything you want to output 1 and anything you want to output 17. This goes all the way up to output 16 and output 32 - they are totally independent of each other.

Thanks Bob. I ASSUME you are verifying this by actually having used the device and not just on literature?

I'll be ordering mine sight unseen so I NEED to make sure I get this right.

Yes, it is 16x32. Having used both video hub studio and broadcast videohub which has 72x144 - worked flawlessly for almost a year now.

hi shaun,
yes - I install Blackmagic routers on a regular basis, and this is from my first hand experience, not just reading the manual. I usually use a cheap bare bones Mac Mini to control the router. These routers will not work "stand alone" - they need to be on a network - so that is your "hidden cost".

Again Bob, thanks.

I was under the impression that one could "log in" to the router to make changes and then disconnect the computer (possibly a laptop in my application) and that the network connection to the control computer doesn't need to be constant. Is that correct?

I will be using it for routing sources in and out of my ATEM based multicam system and once the show is set up, historically I don't need to make changes until the next show.

Appreciate your learned input! Thanks.
