Blackmagic Design today announced Videohub Control for iPad™, a new control panel software that allows Apple™ iPad to become a powerful and attractive XY control panel for all Blackmagic Design Videohub series routing switchers, and is now available on the iTunes™ App Store.
Videohub Control for iPad will be demonstrated on the Blackmagic Design IBC 2010 booth #7.B25.
In the past, router control panels have only been designed as rack mount boxes that are expensive and have poor quality displays. With the latest generation of hand held computers such as the Apple iPad, it’s now possible to get a large vibrant touch screen computer with attractive design at a price that’s a fraction of the cost of custom hardware XY router control panels. Videohub Control takes these advantages and turns the Apple iPad into an incredible router control panel that’s fast to use and attractive. Videohub Control running on an Apple iPad is the perfect modern control panel for post production.
Because the Videohub Control software is free from the Apple iTunes™ App store, it’s easy for customers to download direct to the iPad. Simply go to the App store on the iPad, and search for “Videohub”. Once downloaded and set up, it will connect to the Videohub router over the network. The buttons can be assigned to sources and destinations and with attractive icons for intuitive router control. Users simply press the buttons on the interface, and the router crosspoint changes.
Videohub Control takes over the entire iPad interface and runs full screen. When the iPad is mounted on walls or on racks, its incredibly thin size makes it an ultra modern and extremely attractive looking control panel, and will suit the decor of the most modern designed post production facility.
“We are so excited to have our new Videohub Control software available for iPad”, said Grant Petty, CEO, Blackmagic Design. “Not only does this new control panel software look attractive, it’s also lots of fun to use! It’s incredibly interactive and I think the iPad is simply the world’s best router control panel!”
Videohub Control for Apple iPad is available now and is compatible with all models of Videohub series routers from Blackmagic Design.
