More details


Earlier revisions of the BMD videohub did not have a fan of any kind. The Black magic 20x20 and 12x12 Videohubs have fans that are quite normal for rack mounted equipment. If you need to work on set near microphones that hear everything we can reduce the sound level of the fan. It also makes the video hub a 12v dc powered device!

The Quiet On Set Kit was built specifically to allow 12 volt powering of the videohub and to reduce fan noise. Quiet is achieved by adding two 14 dBa (between breathing and whisper level sound level) fans with fluid dynamic bearings to an all-new top panel built by NEBTEK. The fans cool the internal temperatures to the same temperature as the stock fans, but with a reduction in noise.

This modification includes an upper panel with pre-installed fans for easy installation, requiring the user to remove the old panel and fans from the Videohub and adding our modified panel by plugging the fans into their corresponding connections and reinstalling the top panel. For sufficient cooling, we strongly recommend that you leave at least 1/2 rack unit space above the Videohub unit.

The kit comes with a custom power cable as well as an AC/DC 60W 12V power Supply with modified 4 pin XLR cable end. No soldering is required, installation is as easy as unplugging a cable inside the hub and plugging the new one in. The installation demo below will show you how to install both the DC power cable and fan modifications.


  • Reduces noise caused by stock fans
  • Allows Videohub to run off of DC power (optional)
  • Easy to install (see video below)


NOTE: The modification is completely non-destructive and the resulting modified router runs cooler than the original product. Please indicate if this is for 12x12 or 20x20. The Modification is easy to install and is completely reversible. The router can be put back in factory condition in minutes.
