Roland V-800HD MKII Multi-format Switcher

Supporting live events requires being ready for an ever-changing variety of input sources. The Roland V-800HD MK II is equipped with scaling for every input and a wide range of common video connectors allowing camera, data and smart device sources of different resolutions and frame rates to be automatically detected, scaled and then adjusted as needed. Fine position adjustment for each input can be set in real-time using the joystick positioner control or from the menu displayed on the multi-viewer.

A wide array of digital and analog inputs can accept feeds from media players, computers, professional or consumer video cameras, and more. Using internal scaling hardware, each input is separately scaled to the selected output resolution, ensuring output consistency between sources. This consistency is important, as it reduces input processing overhead required by the display or streaming box, minimizing dropped frames.

While the feature set of the V-800HD MKII is expansive, it is also intuitive and simple to operate after the initial setup. Music venues, houses of worship, streaming media production companies, and convention centers that rely on volunteers or less-experienced technicians can take advantage of the rich feature set and ease of use, with minimal impact to existing infrastructure.

Multi-Format Performance

All inputs are scaled and converted to match the selected video output format, ensuring consistent image representation from source to source.

Full Range of Connectivity

The V-800HD MK II supports a large number of input formats, from analog to digital, with all the necessary connectors. The SDI connectors accommodate 3G, HD, and SD. The DVI-I connectors pull full duty for DVI-D, DVI-A and even HDMI using a simple HDMI/DVI adapter. The Mini D-Sub 15 pin type connector accommodates SD/HD component as well as computer input via RGB.

AUX Bus Switch

Easily switch sources connected to the assignable AUX outputs with the dedicated AUX layer switches. This is ideal for selecting which source is sent to a confidence monitor or secondary destination.

High-Quality Internal Processing

The V-800HD MK II uses 4:4:4/10-bit internal signal processing. This lets you achieve compositing and output with no reduction in high-detail RGB signals driven from a computer. The result is a sharp, unblurred display of video and text, even on large screens and LED displays. The V-800HD MK II delivers high image quality for all uses, from live broadcasts to event displays.

Upgraded Key-Compositing Engine

Along with the upgraded internal signal processing, a newly developed keyer is included. Chroma Key lets you adjust phase range, amount of chroma, and other parameters based on HSV color space that is closely related to human chromatic sensation. This allows you to achieve high quality and tight chroma key compositing even when using 1080p video sources. What’s more, the V-800HD MK II can accept an External Key. This attractively composites colorful CG titles and gradation/transparency clips, enabling you to achieve visual effects that are even more impressive.

HDMI Multiviewer Output

The multiviewer output allows you to monitor the status of all input sources plus the Program and Preview outputs. The convenient HDMI connector enables the use of a readily available and affordable monitor.

Built-In HDCP Mode

When playing back a Blu-ray disc that contains commercial content or digital broadcast programming, the digital output is encoded using HDCP (High- bandwidth Digital Content Protection), which is one means of copyright protection. This means that switchers that are not HDCP-compatible will not display or pass-through such video content, even in cases where permission for use in a live event was obtained from the copyright holder. To resolve this problem, the V-800HD MK II features a dedicated mode that officially supports HDCP. A panel indicator lets you check the operating state when the unit is in the HDCP mode.
