The new V-1200HD Multi-Format Video Switcher from Roland features a new “hybrid” engine that combines a 4:2:2 / 2 M/E switcher with a 4:4:4/10-bit multi-format processor presentation switcher. M/E modes are selectable and a configurable bussing structure allows up to six video layers of composition and two independent auxiliary video outputs ideal for broadcast applications. Inputs include 10x 3G SDI and 4x HDMI with 6x 3G-SDI Outputs and 2x HDMI outputs. Scalers on HDMI inputs 3 & 4 and HDMI outputs support SD, HD and VESA resolutions. Switch using the optional V-1200HDR Control Surface or free downloadable Remote Control Software (RCS). The video inputs and the powerful built-in 16-channel audio mixer can be expanded with XI-Series video and audio expansion cards. An intuitive user interface with assignable cross-points and on screen names ensures maximum flexibility for and live production or broadcast. The multi-format processor enables RGB 4:4:4/10-bit processing best suited for computer formats with full scaling that allows for splitting content across two screens. A 4K switching mode simulates a routing switcher by combining four SDI inputs or output to achieve a single 4K source. Installing the XI-SDI expansion card enables 4K routing of up to three inputs and two outputs. The V-1200HD’s revolutionary “Hybrid” engine and affordable price point makes it ideal for many markets including broadcast, streaming, corporate events, worship, education, and production rental.
A comprehensive and flexible multi-format video switcher giving you complete control of video sources, key layers and mixing engine configurations. The V-1200HD introduces a unique flexible hybrid engine with 4:2:2 broadcast switcher and 4:4:4 live event switcher. In addition to powerful video capabilities, the V-1200HD also has a built-in 16-channel audio mixer.
The flexibility of the V-1200HD extends to the user interface. The V-1200HD can be controlled by the optional V-1200HDR Control Surface; a dedicated controller with touch screen, T-bar, and control knob switches and buttons. The “touch and turn” feature ensures precise operational control when adjusting mixing parameters. The V-1200HD also has two HDMI inputs for display of the V-1200HD multi-view outputs on the built-in touch screens. The V-1200HD RCS is a dedicated software application that controls all of the mixing parameters from a computer to use in conjunction with either the V-1200HDR or on its own. For more complex mixing configurations the V-1200HD RCS software application can control up to four V-1200HD units simultaneously on one network. You can separate operating functions by using a multi-person team. For example video camera switching can be done by the V-1200HDR controller and projector-output switching via the V-1200RCS software.
The V-1200HD also supports control of up to four PTZ cameras that support the VISCA protocol using RS-422 with scene storage for direction, zoom, and pan positioning useful for live production and broadcast studio applications. The powerful digital audio processing engine enables a total of 92 input/output channels from SDI, HDMI and can embed and de-embed analog or digital audio. The on-board digital audio mixer supports up to 16 channels of audio.UPC: 761294504246
