Roland VR-1HD Reviews

GREAT VALUE - GREAT MIXER

Roland VR-1HD is a great value for the money. You can do so many things with this device.

Great

I ordered it the second I heard about the product and I'm glad I did. Seems to sell out quickly.  As an organizational psychologist, I do a lot of presentations. I use this for corporate training events and teaching in higher education. I have a main camera, a little mock-webcam, and a third camera zoomed into my whiteboard. It's great to do Picture-in-picture for presentations. The background is the whiteboard and I'm in the corner for continuity. My clients and students like that. Works well for facilitation. This is great for operating with one person. I use three cameras and have two external monitors on a rack kit. This sits next to my laptop. Most of my the streaming occurs via Zoom. This is overkill but that reflects positively on my professionalism. Value: The value and reliability of this device is well worth it. It streams higher quality via HDMI out, so that's what I run into my computer via Magewell HDMI - USB 3. I could run it directly via USB but my studio has a Magewell, so I use it. I have a Blackmagic Design HD TV Switcher that has worked for years. This replaces it because it's easier to make adjustments while I'm the presenter. I consider a couple of external monitors to be a must have for me. I use the Blackmagic Design dual monitors on a rack mount. It's very easy. Audio: I prefer lavalier and a shotgun mic as backup. The gooseneck thing is probably cool but doesn't interest me.

It's good but not great

While I believe this is the best budget switcher/encoder available, it has it's limitations. But would definitely recommend to anyone needing an easy live-streaming solution.

Awesome Compact Streaming Mixer!

The VR-1HD is a great little AV mixer if you only need to switch between 2-3 video sources and require professional results on a budget. There are a surprising amount of features buried in the menus and the auto switching options are really handy if you're working short handed.

Great Buy and Works as Described!

Simple setup! I'm using with my iMac (directly from VR-1HD USB port to iMac), laptop (for presentations, video's and slideshows) two 10 inch 2K monitors and an audio-technica gooseneck mic (also has another mic port on side of unit). Switching is smooth, menus simple and easy, software program a plus (however, using unit only works perfect). Great ALL IN ONE piece of equipment! Well built and solid. Audio effects a plus. If you're only using up to 3 camera's and a laptop, you can't beat this streaming mixer. Also, when you dig into the menus, this thing does SO much more. Go to Rolands site and download the manual. You'll see it's well worth the money. With updated firmware, the key button now activates Luma AND Chroma functions. The ONLY thing this mixer is missing is Multi-View (which is why I purchased two small monitors). Hopefully Roland will add multi view with next firmware update.

Almost perfect

The only feature that is not included is the ability to delay the individual camera feeds to sink them up. That, and a multiscreen view would make this little bugger perfect. The functionality is great but it takes some tinkering to get stills and audio loaded on to it. I wish I had done a bit more research before purchasing this, but I am happy with the product as it is.

No multi-view preview

Despite all the nice features this switcher has - and it has many, it does NOT have a multi-view preview output! This makes it a COMPLETE deal breaker for me. How can you switch from source to source without first being able to preview it? A subject could be out of frame, out of focus etc. but you won't know until you switch to program. That's too late! I was completely shocked to find this out after taking delivery of 2 units. I emailed Roland to confirm, and they indicated This model does not have a multi-view, that starts with our 4 input models. Sadly I now have to return them. Just be advised if this is something you need.

Works better than anticipated.

This unit worked with my camera and laptop to send a streaming signal. So far I am very happy with it.

How would you set up audio follows video if one person was local and one was remote over zoom or skype?
Asked by: Scott
The easiest thing would be to bring the call in with an iPad or laptop as another source, although the audio may be tricky b/c the HDMI out of the mobile devices does not carry the audio for calls like Skype or FaceTime. You could use a 3.5mm to 1/4" (or RCA) cable and bring the audio into one of the audio inputs... It wouldn't exactly be audio following video but rather the remote audio would be at the control of the input fader.
