The Edirol / Roland V-1600HD Multi-Format Video Switcher is an all-in-one multi-channel switcher with a built-in monitor, scalers, and multi-format inputs and outputs. Ideal for live video production, the switcher has 16 inputs for connecting to HD/SD-SDI, DVI-D/HDMI, RGB, Component, S-Video, and composite formats. It comes with 14 mixing channels and allows you to effortlessly mix and output various video sources such as cameras, VTRs, RGB computer sources, Blu-ray/DVD, and high-end SD/HD-SDI video sources without external converters.

With the included HD/SD SDI input for professional video equipment and DVI-D, the switcher directly connects to PC/Mac. You can output digital/analog HD resolution even while down-converting.

The Multi-Format Video Switcher offers various multi-screen solutions such as independent outputs, multi-screen with edge-blending, dual mode, and split mode. One video input can be daisy-chained to multiple inputs using the thru out connectors. The scaler for each input can be zoomed to any position in the video image. With the built-in monitor, you can preview each video source when external monitors are not available or ideal.

With 64 (8 x 8) memory banks, the switcher can store and instantly recall setup parameters. It has the intuitive operating ability to control DSK (Downstream Keyer), key composition, and PiP.

All-in-One Multi-Channel / Multi-Format
  • Includes a built-in monitor, scalers, and multi-format inputs and outputs (no external card needed)
  • Supports HD/SD-SDI, DVI-D/HDMI, RGB, Component, S-Video, still images, and composite formats
  • Ideal for live video production
Multi-Input
  • HD/SD-SDI input x 8 - automatically identifies HD-SDI and SD-SDI; enables you to choose letterbox, crop or fill options if output setup and aspect ratios are different from input
  • DVI-D/HDMI input x 2 - supports 4 DVI-D inputs; HDMI signal can be input using HDMI to DVI adaptor
  • RGB/COMPONENT input x 4 - equipped with 4 D-Sub 15-pin connectors for analog RGB input and 2 switchable component connectors
  • SD input x 2 - composite input (BNC type) and S-Video (Y/C)
Multi-Output
  • SDI output x 2 - supports HD-SDI or SD-SDI output formats
  • DVI-D/HDMI output x 2 - allows you to connect a projector or monitor that supports a digital connection and HDMI output using an HDMI to DVI-D adaptor
  • RGB/COMPONENT output x 2 - PC monitor or Projector can be connected from analog RGB or component connector
  • SD output x 2 - with the built-in scaler, the switcher enables SD video to be output from the AUX bus
Live Production
  • Event production - you can effortlessly mix and output various video sources such as cameras, VTRs, RGB computer sources, Blu-ray/DVD, and high-end SD/HD-SDI video sources without external converters
  • Aux mode - allows you to set the output at different resolution, making the switcher ideal for sending the program out to a record feed
  • Studio production - allows you to composite text/graphics from a PC/Mac on background video content; HD output is available for monitoring, live streaming as well as for display, recording, or broadcasting
Multi-screen Solutions
  • Independent outputs
  • Multi-screen with edge blending - can display a single image on 2 screens with edge blend function for seamless image
  • Dual mode - allows you to individually switch 2 video inputs simultaneously and also lets you preview each video source
  • Split mode - allows you to display 2 video inputs on a single screen; suitable for comparing the videos on the same screen
Multi-Zoom
  • One video input can be daisy-chained to multiple inputs using the thru out connectors. The scaler for each input can be zoomed to any position in the video image.
Built-in High Resolution 8.5" LCD Monitor
  • With preview ability for each video source when external monitors are not available or ideal
  • For easy operation, menu functions and parameters can be on the built-in screen and monitor sources can be selected from PGM (Program), PVM (Preview), and AUX (Auxiliary) bus
Effects
  • PiP - Allows you to combine 2 images in 1 video image
  • Key composition - you can combine Chroma/Luminance key and semi-translucent composition using Linear key
  • DSK (Downstream Keyer) - allows for compositing by combining visual elements from separate sources into a single image. This involves the replacement of selected parts of an image with other material, usually, but not always, from another image
  • Various transition effects - supports Dissolves, NAM (Non-Additive Mix), FAM (Full Additive Mix) mixing type, and 4 types of wipe patterns. The NAM transition allows you to compare 2 images and displays pixel with high brightness levels while switching the images wherein the FAM transition offers images with the luminance level held steady
Intuitive Operation
  • 64 (8 x 8) memory - can store and instantly recall setup parameters
  • Switchable inputs - input format types can be switched from Ch 11-14 and selected format is indicated on the backlit input status indicator
  • 14 channels of PGM/PST (Program/Preset) - includes PGM/PST style buttons similar to those used in broadcast switchers and indicates a signal with a green color
Manual Transition
  • Includes TAKE button and flip flop style T-bar fader
Quick Access to Functions
  • Dedicated setup buttons for quick and easy setup
Other Connectors
  • Reference input - used for synchronizing external equipment
  • RS-422 remote connector - Controllable using RS-422 via computer software
  • TALLY output - TALLY signal is provided for camera or external monitors
  • MIDI connector - allows you to control the switcher using any MIDI device or any V-LINK enabled unit
