The Blackmagic Design Videohub Master Control is the ultimate control system for Blackmagic’s Videohub family, letting you control all Videohubs, from the one with least amount of inputs to the one with the most, and it’ll let you cycle through the inputs, select any one, and route it to any destination.
One of the system’s great features is that you can lock routes to prevent from accidentally changing routes when you’re live. And you unlock any destinations locked by others through their computer, iPad, or Video Smart Control. Another great feature is that the routes can be labeled and easily searched for. For example, VTRs can be labeled “VTRs” and searched for as “VTRs.”

…from the one with least amount of inputs to the one with the most:

Clear buttons that are illuminated by both RGB and white LEDs so that a wider range of rich and clean colors can be displayed. Videohub Master Control lets you see everything with an extremely elegant LCD display that keeps you fully aware of your router status. The front panel can be unscrewed and slid off so labels can be inserted under the buttons. You get Adobe Illustrator files with crop marks that you can use as templates to generate your own custom labels. All buttons can be variably backlit so you can always read button labels even in dark rooms. Master Control is less than an inch thick and uses only a single rack unit space.
Easy to Install
You can customize buttons, sources and destinations using the included, easy to use Windows and Mac software. To set up the panel, just connect to the built-in USB connection and then run the software. You can select where the Videohub is on your network, as well as how many destinations you want on the panel. You can even select the backlighting brightness, as well as if you want a “take” button!
Connects via Ethernet
Master Control uses standard Ethernet networking so you can simply plug into an existing computer network. If you want to use your Videohub in mission critical environments, you can connect you Master Control to routers via a dedicated Ethernet switch. Master Control features power over Ethernet, so if used with an Ethernet switch that includes power over Ethernet support, no power supply will be required. For non-powered Ethernet switches, a power supply with international power socket adapters is included. Master Control also features loop through Ethernet connections, perfect for looping to other control panels or computers. You can chain dozens of control panels and save on Ethernet cabling.
