Roland's V-1HD 4 x HDMI Input Switcher is a portable solution for HD video production that accommodates up to four HD inputs. The inputs each have a frame buffer/TBC so you don't need to genlock your input sources together. You can control the switcher manually by using the built-in controls, or connect it to a computer or iPad running optional software for electronic control. Select your working resolution and switch between your four input sources. Built into the switcher is a 12-channel audio mixer which can de-embed and embed audio signals from HDMI.

The integrated T-fader allows you to manually control the speed of transitions, or you can use the take button to actuate your selected transition. The unit features a program and multiview preview output, as well as an analog audio input and output. Though small in size, it allows you to perform picture-in-picture, green screen, and other keying effects, while a transform control enables advanced video effects on your footage.

HD Switcher

This portable HD switcher supports four inputs of HD video, allowing you to select 1080i, 1080p, or 720p as your input source. Each input incorporates a frame buffer/TBC that allows you to use non-genlocked cameras, as well as play-out devices as video sources. You select the broadcast system (59.94/50 Hz) within the menu. The format selector switch is a global switch that affects the input and output format. However, with the switch in either of the 1080 options, the V-1HD enables input of both 1080i and 1080p signals.

Audio Mixer

The built-in 12-channel audio mixer allows you to de-embed audio from the HDMI stream, mix, and re-embed the audio into your output stream. The audio mixer is accessed by a connected PC running the available software.

Output Modes

The V-1HD features two HDMI outputs—one output always shows your switched program output, while the other (preview) can be switched between program output and multiview of your four sources.

Control Buttons

The soft rubber backlit buttons allow you to easily see the condition of your switcher, even in dim lighting conditions.

  • Red: Indicates the current source being output
  • Green: Indicates the video source that will be output on the next transition

Transitions

There are three buttons for applying transition effects: Cut, Mix (4 types), and Wipe (30 types).

Beat-per-Minute Sync

By using the T-fader bar and the BP-Sync button, you can deliver visuals synced to a music performance.

Memory

The Memory button allows you to save or recall up to eight presets, and the Freeze button can temporarily pause the incoming video.

Transformer Buttons

These buttons can be used to switch your video instantly or for applying effects.

Transitions

The T-bar lets you control the speed of your selected transitions.

Keying

The keying functionality permits picture-in-picture as well as green screen keying and graphics keying.

Output Fade

You can select to fade your output video to either black or white.

Effects

  • Picture-in-picture and split screen functions
  • Supports chroma and luminance key
  • Two separate bus effects knobs allow you to apply affects independently to each bus
  • Nine types of filter effects are available including silhouette, colorpass, negative, and findedge

Audio Effects

  • EQ
  • Delay
  • Compressor
  • HPF
  • Gate
  • Reverb
  • Mastering effect

Control

Remote control is possible with the V-1HD RCS dedicated computer software for Mac OS X and Windows, or the V-1HD Remote iPad app connected via a USB cable. The application offers a detailed view of the connected V-1HD and can be used to switch video, mix audio, or change settings. You can control the unit from a music instrument or a sequencer via the MIDI input connector via MIDI. The V-1HD also transmits MIDI over USB and its controls can be mapped to popular visual performance software applications. Please use the Lightning to USB Camera Adapter to connect an iPad to the V-1HD.

HDCP

HDCP compliance can be enabled within the menu.

question

Is there some way to incorporate tally lights with this unit? I need to make sure the talent knows which camera is live, so they can speak to the correct one. Thanks!
Asked by: Curt
There is no tally integration with this switcher and that is what is needed to operate tally lights.

Asked by: gyasi
Yes, you would just need an HDMI Capture device for your computer. Such as this option from Magewell. https://bhpho.to/37FKVhH

question

Can this production switcher handle 2-2.5k footage?
Asked by: 3nityXcel
The max resolution that this switcher can handle is 1080p, it does not work with a 2k or 2.5k signal I'm afraid. We do have the ATEM Production Studio 4k, which can handle a UHD 3840 x 2160 signal. However even that model does not offer support for 2k or 2.5k, those are not resolutions supported by production switchers in general at this time.

question

how do i broadcast in youtube with this?
Asked by: Gabriel B.
You need to encode the Roland's output so you can get it into your computer. Once in the computer, the video will mount on your desktop. Then open YouTube and select your video stream and you are on your way. Please see the attached for a recommended encoder, the Magewell XI100DUSB HDMI USB 3.0 Capture Dongle.

question

Will the V1 accept a HDMI signal from Panasonic HDC-TM700? I see 35' as a length for HDMI cables I tried on the Black Magic and it would't accept any HDMI signal from the Panasonic TM700 over 12'. That being the case I returned it since it didn't state that condition.
Asked by: Ernie
Generally speaking, an HDMI signal is not strong and weakens exponentially with distance traveled. I would blame the distance and the type of HDMI cable before any switcher. If indeed the switcher is not accepting the signal another does, I would still suggest getting a better cable. HDMI signals peter out 30-35' so if you are anywhere near that, you need HDMI cabling with booster circuitry. Please follow the link for a selection of longer distance HDMI cables. http://bhpho.to/1LRl5rv

question

Does this unit output 23.97fps or 29.97 fps at 1080p ?
Asked by: John
Sorry this unit only supports 50/59.94. You would have to do a signal conversion from those frame rates.
