Live events requiring video production require a flexible video switcher like the V-8HD Multi-Format HDMI Video Switcher from Roland. This multi-format video switcher can input up to eight HDMI video sources, switch them, add effects, and output them consistently to screens or projectors. Whether you're switching video for a live presentation or live streaming, the V-8HD has the features necessary for high-quality, live video switching.
The HDMI inputs can accept up to 1080p60 resolution feeds from numerous sources such as media players, computers, professional video cameras, and more. Two of the HDMI inputs utilize internal scaling hardware, which separately scale and/or convert videos of varied resolutions into the selected output resolution, ensuring output consistency between sources. The V-8HD supports numerous effects such as cut, mix, wipe, chroma and luma key, flip, fade, and more. You can also store up to eight .bmp and .png files in internal memory to add images to your effects.
The V-8HD features an 18-channel audio mixer, and up to 24-bit, 48 kHz PCM audio with an effects library that provides gain, de-esser, noise reduction, and more. It also features left-right analog RCA inputs and outputs, as well as a 1/4" TRS headphone output. It also features a 4.3" TFT color LCD which previews each input and program output all on a single screen. On the top of the unit, there are multiple rows of input and output buttons, position, source, and levels buttons, and a fade T-bar, giving you full control of your production within the small, portable frame. You can also remotely control and monitor Atomos recorders to start/stop using a trigger button, so you don't miss a vital record.
While the feature set of the V-8HD is expansive, it is also intuitive and simple to operate after the initial setup. Music venues, houses of worship, streaming media production companies, and convention centers that rely on volunteers or less-experienced technicians can take advantage of the rich feature set and ease of use, with minimal impact on existing infrastructure. You can even pair the switcher with a BOSS single or double footswitch and program over 100 commands, adding to the versatility of the V-8HD.
