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.

Processing Y:Pb:Pr, 4:4:4, 10-bit
Supported Formats Video: 480/59.94i, 576/50i, 480/59.94p, 576/50p, 720/59.94p, 720/50p, 1080/59.94i, 1080/50i, 1080/59.94p, 1080/50p. The SDI input can input the same frame rate as a setup menu setting. (1080/50p conforms to VESA DMT Version 1.0 Revision 10.) PC: 640 x 480/60Hz, 800 x 600/60Hz, 1024 x 768/60Hz, 1280 x 768/60Hz, 1280 x 1024/60Hz, 1366 x 768/60Hz, 1400 x 1050/60Hz, 1600 x 1200/60Hz, 1920×1080/60 Hz, 1920 x 1200/60Hz For all but the last three PC formats: Output refresh rate is 75 Hz when frame rate is set to 50 Hz 920 x 1200/60Hz: Reduced blanking 800 x 600/60Hz: When reference is set to external, the resolution of 800 x 600 and refresh rate of 60 Hz are no longer compliant with the VESA standard. This means that display on some devices may not be possible in this situation.
