Multi-Format Video Switcher
The Roland V-800HD Multi-Format Video Switcher is a true multi-format video mixer, meaning that it doesn’t require input sources to be matched to output resolutions. Every input has it’s own broadcast quality scaler that can individually scale, stretch, crop and zoom each source as needed for the output resolution chosen. And most every type of digital and analog input is available, in video or computer format. On the output side, a built-in HDMI multi-viewer output provides a convenient monitoring solution. In addition to video channels, two channels are available for still images, which upload by USB memory stick or frame grab.
Ten assignable video cross-points allow the reordering of channel buttons, especially useful when sudden changes in camera lines or differences in formats create blank spaces between select buttons on the bus. A dedicated composite output allows for a down-converted SD signal to always be ready for use in archiving to a DVD recorder or to an encoder for streaming. Multi-Zoom functionality can be enabled when one video input is shared internally with up to three more inputs. The scaler for each input can zoom into any position in the video image to give the appearance that additional cameras are connected, thus creating a virtual multi-camera environment.
Portable 4 x HDMI Input Switcher
Roland’s V-1HD 4 x HDMI Input Switcher is a portable solution for HD video production that accommodates up to four HD inputs. The inputs each have a frame buffer/TBC so that you don’t need to Genlock your input sources together. You can control the switcher manually by using the built-in controls or connect it to a computer or iPad running optional software for electronic control. Select your working resolution and switch between your four input sources. Built into the switcher is a 12-channel audio mixer, which can de-embed and embed audio signals from HDMI.
The integrated T-fader allows you to manually control the speed of transitions, or you can use the take button to actuate your selected transition. The unit features a program and multi-view preview output as well as an analog audio input and output. Though small in size, it allows you to perform picture-in-picture, green-screen, and other keying effects, and a transform control enables advanced video effects on your footage.
