Roland Shipping New ‘V-800HD’ Switcher

Unit processes video from live events or connects to any type of source

Roland Systems Group is shipping its V-800HD Multi-Format Live Video Switcher which can be used to process video from live events or as an installation that enables connection to any type of source, whether it be digital or analog, computer or video format.

The Roland V-800HD has sixteen inputs and eight channels of mixing with independent scalers on the inputs and outputs allowing users to connect to any video format including 3G, HD, SD, computer, digital, analog, SDI, and HDMI, making it a “multi-format video switcher,” the company says.

In addition, the V-800HD has a built-in multiviewer with HDMI output and supports input/output resolutions up to 1080/60p including 3G SDI, and the V-800HD is HDCP compliant enabling users to mix Blu-ray content with computer and camera sources for live production, Roland says. The newly developed key-compositing engine, assignable crosspoints, and internal multi-zoom function increase the V-800HD’s functionality for live productions or installed applications, the company says.
