The hybrid 2 M/E Roland V-1200HD Multi-Format Video Switcher combines the features of a production switcher with the capabilities of a presentation switcher. Users can switch and control functions on the Roland V-1200HD using the dedicated V-1200HDR Control Surface or free downloadable Remote Control Software (RCS). Users can also connect up to two compatible control devices on a network to separate out switcher functions by M/E’s, keying, or audio mixing.
Multiple M/E configurations can be selected from 1 M/E to 1.5 M/E and 2 M/E to meet the needs of any live production. Inputs include 10 3G-SDI and four HDMI with six 3G-SDI Outputs and two HDMI outputs. Scalers on HDMI inputs 3 and 4, and HDMI outputs support SD through HD resolutions.
The V-1200HD has a built-in 16-channel audio mixer that integrates with popular digital audio protocols such as Dante or REAC via Roland’s XI-Expansion cards. An intuitive user interface with assignable cross-points and on-screen names ensures maximum flexibility for live production or broadcast.
