Roland, presents the Video Switcher HD V-1HD+, the latest in the V series of multi-channel HD video switching products of the company. Developed by the popular four-channel V-1HD switcher, the V-1HD+ offers more extensive capabilities for advanced switching applications, maintaining simple operation, professional performance and the high reliability that made V-1HD the favorite by users worldwide. With versatile HDMI inputs and outputs, detailed control capabilities, essential monitoring tools, and a 14-channel audio mixer with legendary Roland sound quality, the V-1HD+ is the ultimate compact solution for A/V switching, designed for visual storytellers who want to be serious.
From live events and business conferences to educational facilities and places of worship, the V-1HD+ is inspired by the ever-growing needs of today’s creators. The four HDMI inputs are available to mix a variety of sources, including cams, presentation computers, tablets, and video game consoles. And with built-in scaling on Input 4, users can automatically sync and calibrate problematic video sources with external devices. There are also two independent HDMI outputs for professional production versatility.
With its familiar interface, the production workflow with the V-1HD+ proceeds easily and smoothly. The buttons on the panel provide quick access to the System menu, downstream key on/off, transition types, on/off effects, and other commonly used functions. Also included are PGM and PST buses and a transition/fade bar (T-Bar), which are the most popular and popular video switching controls in the industry, and the easiest to learn for beginners. And with knobs for audio volume, signal/peak indicators, and unit gain markers, quickly adjusting sound levels is easy and intuitive.
In addition to switching cameras, the V-1HD+ allows a single operator to mix sound professionally with its integrated 14-channel digital audio mixer. Two XLR microphone inputs with selectable phantom power supply provide support for professional broadcast microphones, and there is also a 1/8 input for a lavalier microphone or a stereo audio source such as a smartphone. An additional stereo line input with RCA sockets is available, and digital stereo audio embedded in the HDMI inputs can also be included in the mix.
Each audio input of the V-1HD+ has its own three-band EQ, high-pass filter, compressor and noise gate, as well as a sync delay to align audio to video if needed. The XLR and 1/8 inputs also include de-esser to optimize voice sound in real time. And with the limiter, three-band equalizer and compressor on analog TRS and HDMI outputs, the user always has broadcast quality sound.
The V-1HD+ incorporates several real-time monitoring tools that make it easy to create perfect-looking and sound productions. A multiviewer display with 10 windows can be applied to one or both HDMI outputs, allowing users to prepare shots in succession and preview presentations, and also to choose the stored still images before sending them to the output of the program. The recording status of the cameras can be stored, and the signal level meters are also displayed. Audio monitoring via headphones is also supported.
The powerful effect generator of the V-1HD+ helps engage audiences with visually appealing content. Four composition levels allow operators to add titles at the bottom of the frame, logos, comments from social media and more. The DSK (downstream keyer) level allows you to independently compose a picture-in-picture window on a video feed, which is especially useful for live and online hybrid events.
V-1HD+ also includes many other useful production tools, including support for tally light, triggering remote recording of Atomos recorders, and an RS 232 port for interface with older devices.
