Just like the design of the popular Roland V-1600HD switcher the V-800HD is a true multi-format video mixer meaning there is no need to match input sources to the output resolution. Every input has it's own broadcast quality scaler that can individually scale, stretch, crop and zoom each source as required to fit any output resolution chosen. The V-800HD is HDCP compatible and also features a built-in multi-viewer output that provides a convenient monitoring solution when connected to an HDMI monitor. The eight mixing channels provide connectivity to 3G/HD/SD-SDI, DVI-A/DVI-D/HDMI, RGB, component, and composite formats – as well as an additional two channels for still images assignable via USB memory stick or frame grab. A newly developed key-compositing engine lets you adjust phase range, amount of chroma, and HSV color space parameters. Another key compositing feature includes an external keyer enabling CG titles and gradation clips, enabling impressive visual effects.
Assignable video cross-points allow reordering channel buttons which is 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 enables a down-converted SD signal that is always ready to use for archiving to a DVD recorder or to an encoder for streaming.
The Multi-Zoom feature can be enabled when one video input is shared internally with up to three more inputs – essentially daisy-chaining it. The scaler for each input can zoom into any position in the video image giving the appearance that additional cameras are connected – creating a virtual multi-camera environment. Additional effects include a down stream keyer (DSK), a composite keyer, Picture-in-Picture and multiple transitions.
The V-800HD supports an incredible variety of system design and creative production options for live or fixed installation applications. It is adept and handling LED wall sizing challenges and is ideal for any live event or installation demanding flexibility, stability, high quality, ease of use, and professional connectivity. With video output resolutions up to 1080/60p, 4:4:4/10-bit processing, and support for 3G SDI input resolutions; the highest quality video is achieved. The V-800HD Video Mixer strengthens Roland's Multi-format video mixer line-up and is positioned to the pinnacle of quality video production for live event, broadcast, corporate, educational, and house of worship applications.
Stellar Image Quality at 1080p (3G-SDI)
Supports 1080p video signals at bit rates as high as 3 Gbps — twice the rate of conventional HD. Asserts all the vividness of high-realism, high-detail camera and computer sources.
True Multi-format Performance
There's no need to convert the input source to match the video output format. The built-in scalers up-convert and down-convert any video source to the optimal resolution.
Freely switch between 1080p video that surpasses even broadcast quality. Full support not just for camera video, but for computer output as well -at a full range of resolutions. A new-generation multi-format switcher featuring high-quality built-in scalers on all inputs.
Full Range of Connectivity
The V-800HD 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.
Multiviewer Output for Source Monitoring
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.
