Roland V?1HD overview

  • 1Description

Combine the V-1HD switcher from Roland and the Monarch HD from Matrox and you have the Compact Multicamera Production and Streaming Bundle from B&H. Both devices take up a minimal footprint, but offer powerful functionality. The V-1HD switcher can switch up to four HDMI inputs and send a single program feed to the Matrox Monarch HD, which converts the signal into H.264 for simultaneous live streaming and recording. This configuration is great for producing live content on the go with minimal setup and hardware support requirements. See below for more information on the individual items in this kit.

  • Roland V-1HD Portable 4 x HDMI Input Switcher

    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 that 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 multi-view 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, and a transform control enables advanced video effects on your footage.

    HD Switcher
    This portable HD switcher supports four inputs of HD video. It allows you to select 1080i, 1080p, or 720p as your input source. Each input incorporates a frame buffer/TBC that allows you to use non Gen-locked 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. The other output (preview) can be switched between program output and multiview of your four sources.
    Control buttons
    The soft rubber back-lit 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 video source that will be output on next transition.
    Transitions
    There are three buttons for applying transition effects, CUT, Mix (4-types), and Wipe (30-types).
    Beats 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 your to save or recall up to 8 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

  • Matrox Monarch HD

    The Matrox Monarch HD is an HDMI input/output streaming and recording device that can stream live events and record master versions for post-production or storage at the same time. The streaming and recording functions are totally independent of each other, and therefore recording quality is not affected by streaming bandwidth, and record controls can be operated without disturbing streaming operations. Recorded files are available anytime during a streaming session for use as complementary streaming videos.

    Monarch HD generates RTSP/RTMP compliant H.264 streams from any HDMI source using a built-in encoder and multi-tap 10-bit scaler and de-interlacer. It records the live streams as H.264 MP4 files with two channels of embedded AAC audio to an optional SD card, USB drive, or network-mapped drive. Network-mapped drives are useful if multiple users will need to access the recorded footage. Streaming bitrates can be assigned at up to 20Mbps and recording bitrates at up to 30Mbps. You can stream to your own server or to CDNs like YouTube.

    Bitrates, resolution, and other operational details are selectable in a web-application called Command Center. Via an Ethernet connection from Monarch HD to a router, Command Center is accessible on a phone, tablet, or computer. Up to four Monarch HD units can be controlled from Command Center simultaneously. Stream and record start/stop can also be controlled via push buttons on the front panel.

    Monarch HD operates on a Linux O/S and isn't vulnerable to any automatic updates or unscheduled exchanges with 3rd party servers.

    Overview
    Monarch HD can stream live events from HDMI sources and record master versions for post at the same time. The streaming and recording functions are independent, and recording quality is not affected by streaming bandwidth. Recorded files are available anytime during a streaming session for use as complementary streaming videos.

    H.264 Streaming & Recording
    Monarch HD encodes video from any HDMI source in H.264 in RTSP/RTMP compliant protocols using a built-in encoder and multi-tap 10-bit scaler and de-interlacer. It records the live streams as H.264 MP4 files with two channels of embedded AAC audio to an optional SD card, USB drive, or network-mapped drive. Network-mapped drives are useful if multiple users will need to access the recorded footage. Streaming bitrates can be assigned at up to 20Mbps and recording bitrates at up to 30Mbps. You can stream to your own server or to CDNs like YouTube.

    Compact and Simple-to-Use Design
    Monarch HD features one-touch stream and record front panel push buttons and an Ethernet jack for Web UI access via connection to a router. It's fanless, consumes little power, and has a locking power connector. It can be used desktop, and three units can be installed in a 1RU rack.
    Matrox Command Center Web UI
    Each Monarch HD features its own IP address and can be controlled in a web-application called Command Center. Via an Ethernet connection from Monarch HD to a router, Command Center is accessible on a phone, tablet, or computer. Bitrates, stream/record start and stop, and other operational details are assignable in Command Center, and up to four Monarch HD units can be controlled from it simultaneously. Monarch HD runs on an embedded Linux O/S and is therefore not vulnerable to any automatic updates or unscheduled exchanges with 3rd party servers.

    Status Page
    The Command Center Status Page provides status information including input video detection and resolution, state and configuration of streaming operation and/or recording operation, error conditions, and more.

    Control Page
    Features controls for initiating recording and streaming operations, including synchronized start/stop.

    Record Settings Page
    Allows configuring recording parameters and includes presets based on intended post uses, such as a YouTube preset for VOD uploads and a master quality preset for high quality editing.

    Streaming Settings Page
    Here's where you enter RTMP or RTSP credentials and encoding parameters. Encoding presets are available for quickly choosing settings based on available bandwidth and desired delivery resolution or bitrate. The target encoding streaming parameters only need to be entered once and saved as a unique profile. Multiple profiles can be saved if the device is used in different environments. Each profile can be loaded instantly without having to reenter data.

    Administrative Tools Page
    Allows device naming, IP configuration, date/time settings, and other tasks.

    Additional Tools Page
    Features PC and Mac based utilities to help detect Monarch HD units on a particular network (DHCP server required).
