Roland V-1HD-W Overview

  • 1Description

The Roland V-1HD-W Web Streaming Bundle is a B&H Kit assembled to provide you with a portable HD mixer and HDMI-to-USB converter for live streaming over your computer. The Roland switcher features four independent inputs, each with its own fame buffer, allowing you to mix video sources without dropping frames. A built-in 12-channel audio mixer and manual fader T-bar are familiar tools found in full-sized mixing boards.

The included Magewell USB Capture HDMI Gen 2 supports resolutions up to 1920 x 1200 at 60p via its HDMI 1.4a input. It supports up- and down-conversion, frame rate conversion, and deinterlacing, all accomplished internally and in real time. Supporting USB 3.0 and backward compatible with USB 2.0, it is a plug-and-play device with most computers, allowing you to input or stream your HDMI output from the Roland mixer using your computer as the streaming platform.

  • 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 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
    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.
    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.
    The T-bar lets you control the speed of your selected transitions.
    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.
    • 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
    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 compliance can be enabled within the menu.

  • Magewell USB Capture HDMI Gen 2

    Record or stream an HDMI signal via USB 3.0 with the Magewell USB Capture HDMI Gen 2. With its HDMI v1.4a input, this capture device will accept resolutions of up to 1920 x 1200 at 60p. If you need to stream or record at a certain resolution, the USB Capture HDMI will internally up or down-covert the input signal to the set resolution. It can also perform frame-rate conversion and de-interlacing in real-time with its own hardware, taking the processing load off of your computer's CPU.

    Because the USB Capture HDMI uses the existing drivers on your computer, the capture device will work with any software that supports those drivers. If you don't have a USB 3.0 port available, the USB Capture HDMI will work with a USB 2.0 port, although the resolution and frame rate capabilities will be reduced due to the restricted bandwidth.

    No drivers needed for Windows, Mac, or Linux
    Automatically determines input video format and converts it to the specified output size and frame rate
    Automatically converts input audio formats to 48 KHz PCM stereo audio
    64MB of DDR2 onboard memory to control frame buffer and avoid interruption or dropped frames when USB bandwidth is occupied

Roland V-1HD-W Reviews

V-1HD-W Web Streaming Bundle is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 52.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A versatile, small HDMI production switcher. Used this recently with three cameras and a laptop as sources for a live stream.? These were three different cameras, one pro, one prosumer, and one consumer video cam. Program throughput through a Ninja Blade recorder/monitor, converted to a USB signal through a?Epiphan? Preview output into an LCD monitor, showing all four inputs.? Took audio from a house mixer through the RCA jacks.? Performed well, had enough menu settings to deal with some of the technical and compatibility issues.? Surprisingly, the toughest camera to get to work with the system was the pro camera's HDMI output.? Eventually found a output format that was compatible.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice product but fan is way too noisy! I needed this for a webcasting studio setup where I would be mixing video inputs on the fly as I am presenting. As such, the mixer needs to be close to me and therefore within 3 feet of my microphone. So, after paying almost $1,000 for the mixer, imagine my disappointment to hear an unacceptably loud fan coming from the Roland. Come on guys -for $1,000 for a studio environment piece of equipment where silent equipment is an obvious priority, this is not good enough. That being said, I do like the Rolan's construction, feel and user-friendly operation. I'd consider giving 5 stars if it was not for the fan noise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Run & Gun tiny mixer First an foremost I think some people will complain about all the things it doesn't do, but at a few dollars under a grand I frankly don't have any complaints. It feels well made and sturdy and perfect for quick setup i tight spaces. I use this to switch corporate talking heads on a two camera shoot and I have two additional inputs for a laptop presentation or a video. One note: it has a small fan that runs when you turn it on but it's very quiet and I haven't picked it up on any of my mics. At this price order a couple.What a bargain!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from SDI INS/OUTS OVERHEAT The Roland V-HD1 is a reliable unit and prompted me to go with a V-1SDI because I needed SDI connections and the form factor was ideal for a specific application. I used the unit once for a two-hour event and the SDI IN/OUTS ran hot and the unit itself overheated, video disappeared and the unit locked up. Only after power cycling it and allowing it to cool down for about five minutes did it operate normally. But, the same thing happened within another hour or so. So, I returned the V-1SDI for a refund and will stay with the V-HD1.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great compact portable switcher if you are on a budget! Multi-cam setup is great with my Canon Vixia camcorders and laptop. Just so you know, I am recording to the Atomos Ninja 2 getting great quality results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection. Literally everything you ever dreamed of for an HD video mixer for under $1,000. Incredibly easy to use, lightweight and portable, full HD quality, extensive audio controls including EQ and reverb, plus boatloads of extra features including picture-in-picture, chroma key for live green screen, and tons of other effects that I haven't even had time to discover yet. This thing is fully loaded. I am a video professional using this mixer for live internet broadcasts. I've been doing regular broadcasts for the past several months shooting on Sony A7S II, A7II, and EX1R cameras and I have had nothing but success with this mixer. I split the output with an HDMI splitter, and send it out to a BlackMagic VIdeo Assist or Atomos Ninja to record to SD card or SSD, while simultaneously sending it to a Teradek VidiU to stream online via Facebook Live or Youtube. It has worked perfectly every time and it's almost unbelievable that something this powerful is under $1,000. Honestly a dream come true.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As expected. I purchased mine from a different retailer here in Canada, I've had 0 issues with overheating or issues of that sort. I think a particular con that should be noted though, is that it does have fans, and like most other switchers I have used, in a quiet room it is relatively very loud for such a small unit. The ATEM TV studio had fins on the rear that you could cook eggs on when it was running, but it was silent. The ease of traveling with this thing is sort of life changing. I'll take its shortcomings (not many worth noting for price and size really) with grace. I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best little HDMI mixer for the Buck! I'm a corporate trainer and I use this mixer to create on line training video and live streaming video training. I have a two camera setup with the other two HDMI input ports for mixing two HDMI computer sources. Recently I took the show on the road and the Roland V-1HD did not disappoint. It was perfect for recording and editing our national sales meetings. The AV guys were so impressed with the mixer they bought one!

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 N.
There is no tally integration with this switcher and that is what is needed to operate tally lights.

Can this production switcher handle 2-2.5k footage?
Asked by: 3nityXcel I.
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.

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.

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 M.
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.

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

how long does it takes to safely operate to avoid over heat the unit ?
Asked by: Milo S.
In a climate controlled environment you should be able to operate this unit for hours without any offering heating issues at all.

Can this switcher be used with wirecast?
Asked by: Eric T.
Although the Roland switcher can connect to a PC via USB with dedicated application for control, if you wish to bring in the program video output signal from the switcher into Wirecast on your computer, you will need to use a capture device. Examples of HDMI capture devices for PC are Magewell XI100DUSB HDMI USB 3.0 Capture Dongle or for Mac with thunderbolt, Blackmagic Design UltraStudio Mini Recorder Capture Device.
