Glitch free clean live switching and resynchronization
When you need to cleanly switch between video sources to monitors or directly to air, you need timed or genlocked signals. If you cannot guarantee perfectly timed source signals but you still need to clean switch then Smart Videohub CleanSwitch 12x12 is the special model of Videohub that features resynchronization on all inputs so you get perfect clean feeds every time! Smart Videohub CleanSwitch 12x12 has all of the same great features of Smart Videohub 12x12 plus includes full resynchronization on every input so the router automatically re times all inputs to ensure clean, glitch free switching between router cross points. Sources of different resolutions and the same frame rate can even be output directly to air for smooth, cuts only production. Just like all Smart Videohub models, you can control Smart Videohub CleanSwitch directly from the front panel or remotely over ethernet using the Videohub Control Panel software on a Mac or PC.
Difference Between the 12x12 Cleanswitch and the standard 12x12
The Cleanswitch version fully resynchronizes every input so the router automatically re-times all inputs to ensure clean, glitch free switching between router cross points. This comes at a cost of a 1 frame delay.
The standard 12x12 has a reference input but this is only used for switch timing, so inputs must already be synchronized to ensure a clean switch.
