Roland has described the V-1HD as "Ideal for supporting both live events and presentations, as well as small broadcast setups for enterprise video users, schools and house-of-worship environments. It is also an amazing creative tool for visual artists or musicians who want to add video switching to their performances, create YouTube videos, mix content for online streaming and more. It’s the most affordable 4-channel HD video switcher that includes a hardware interface, video FX and audio mixing/FX, making it a complete portable video switching and control solution.” The V-1HD can also be controlled by the companion PC/Mac or iPad application when connected by USB.
The Roland V-1HD provides switching for up to four HDMI A/V sources including cameras, computers, tablets, smartphones and even Blu-ray players, thanks to its HDCP copy protection support. The high definition output of the V-1HD can be switched between 720p (from 720p inputs), 1080i or 1080p. In either 1080i or 1080p output mode, the V-1HD can accept both 1080p and 1080i input signals simultaneously, allowing it to be used with a range of sources. The V-1HD has a 12-channel audio mixer for mixing stereo audio from HDMI and external stereo audio sources and its dedicated microphone input. The V-1HD includes two HDMI program and preview outputs and a stereo audio output.
The V-1 HD gives users an array of compositing effects, including picture-in-picture and keying, allowing for graphic insets plus titling and green screen capabilities. Ideal for live event video switching, the V-1HD offers advanced transition and filter effects – more than 30 effects and transition types including mix, cut, full additive mix (FAM), non-additive mix (NAM), wipe and other performance effects. The V-1HD also has output fade, BPM Sync and Auto-Scan functions. The A and B video busses each have controls for effects assignment and parameter control. The output can be switched A/B or in PGM/PST mode where the B buss is used for signal preview. The preview output can be set to a multi view mode - where all inputs are displayed with coloured borders indicating the program and preview selections, or in a full-screen mode. The preview output can be used for additional, menu-driven set-up control, or as a second output for applications such as a simultaneous webcast or recording output.
The 12-channel audio mixer offers 3-band parametric EQ, reverb, up to 500ms delay for accurate lip-sync, a compressor/gate on the mic input and level/multiband EQ on the master mix. A headphone output facilitates audio monitoring and the V-1HD supports mono or stereo plug-in-powered microphones.
Create High Quality HD results with Ease
For creative live event video switching, the V-1HD includes a advanced video effects for transforming video into creative visuals to support all kinds of performances. Output of your video mix is as simple as connecting the HDMI output to a projector or screen at an event and you can even connect a recorder for capturing your event or production.
Four HDMI Inputs
The V-1HD has 4 HDMI input connectors compatible with a variety of equipment. The V-1HD supports 1080p/1080i/720p video resolutions. Devices outputting the same resolution can be input regardless of what type of device they are. Both progressive and interlace signals can be input allowing for both 1080i and 1080p signals to be used at the same time. Video signals input from a PC are accurately displayed thanks to progressive signal processing. HDCP is supported for input of copy protected content from devices such as Blu-ray disc players.
The V-1HD has large back-lit buttons for intuitive video switching even in low light conditions. Red lit buttons indicate the current source being output and green lit buttons indicate the video that will be output on the next transition. The V-1HD even lets you know which inputs have sources connected by illuminating the buttons of the inputs with connected sources. The V-1HD features broadcast style Preview/Program switching for professional results. The TRANSFORMER buttons can be used for instantly switching the video or applying effects. Three transition selection buttons permit quick change of mixing style to match style changes in a performance or broadcast. Transition effects include CUT, MIX (4 types) and WIPE (30 types). The auto scan function switches the video automatically across the four video inputs. By using the T-Fader and BPM SYNC button, you can deliver visuals synced to a music performance. Use the FREEZE button to temporarily pause the incoming video. The output fade function makes the output video fade to black or white.
Compositing Effects. Compositing two videos in one screen using Picture in Picture or the split function is ideal for seminars and presentations. The V-1HD also supports chroma key and luminance key which ideal for creating professional looking broadcasts using green screen backgrounds or for overlaying computer generated titles on top of video sources. Many of the visual performance functions made popular by the V-4EX and V-8 are included. Use the knob A and knob B to apply and adjust effects to the A bus and B bus respectively. Nine types of filter effects including silhouette, colorpass, negative and findedge are possible. Effects can also be triggered using the TRANSFORMER buttons for even more interactive visual performance possibilities.
Included is a 12 channel digital audio mixer. The V-1HD can mix 4 stereo audio inputs from the HDMI ports, the stereo line level input and a mic level input. Every channel is equipped with a delay function* to synchronize the video and the audio. Audio follow function enables the audio to transition along with the video. Reverb function and mastering function used for adjusting sound quality and volume are also supported. The final audio mix is both embedded in the HDMI output along with the video signal and is also output to the stereo audio output jacks for sending the audio mix to a PA system or recording it on an external device. *The maximum delay time is 500ms.
