Control your Videohub broadcast SDI routers from your iPad!
Videohub Control uses a familiar push button interface that's fast and easy to use. Simply tap a destination button to show the connected source, and then change sources by pushing any of the source buttons! If you want to lock a destination, then double tap! For more destination and source buttons, just swipe!
Installation is simple, and all you need to do is select Videohub in your iPad settings to enter the IP address for your Videohub router. Be sure your iPad is on a wireless network that has access to your Videohub router first! To configure each interface button, just press and hold to select source numbers and icons.
Check the Videohub router instruction manual on the Blackmagic Design web site for more information. www.blackmagicdesign.com.
The app works great and does what it is supposed to. However, it isn't as customizable as the desktop software, in that you cannot remove buttons you don't need. Also, the resolution isn't optimized for iPad Retina display, so edges and text are a bit fuzzy. Fix those two things and I would love it. Pretty please?
Absolutely wonderful application. Blackmagic-Design has made a wonderful Router with good supporting software to control it.
I can control the routing and deck control of our 11 Edit Suite facility through an iPad. It doesn't get any easier than this.
No take confirmation?!?
App does work but is dangerous to use in any broadcast environment. There's no take confirmation so you can easily accidentally make a switch. It should be set as default to require a confirmation.
Also the configuration only allows for one router, I support multiple locations, having a selection would be handy.
App has not been updated and looks ugly on a retina iPad.
Option to add your own images for the sources would be nice.
