Roland SR-20HD AV Streaming Mixer designed to control using a computer

When Livestream Directly to Multiple Platforms—No Computer Required

The compact SR-20HD Direct Streaming AV Mixer makes it easy to produce content and encode livestreams for your business or organization—without the need for a computer. Just connect your AV devices and securely stream directly to multiple platforms over LAN. You can also record directly to SDXC media for archiving and later distribution. Everything you need is integrated into a single portable unit that anyone can use with minimal training. When consistency, dependability, and network security are top priorities, the SR-20HD delivers professional results every time.

Built for Success

The SR-20HD is designed to make everyone successful with livestream operation and management, regardless of experience. It combines dual streaming encoders, simple video switching, audio mixing, and recording support in one unit, simplifying production tasks and reducing points of failure.

Plug In and Stream

Using the two HDMI inputs, you can connect common video sources such as cameras, smartphones, tablets, and computers running presentation software. In addition, a wide range of audio inputs are available for mics, music players, electronic musical instruments, and more.

Once everything is plugged in, simply connect to your network router and begin livestreaming with team members, clients, or students on Facebook, YouTube Live, Twitch, or by RTMP to your CDN.

Secure and Reliable Operation

Packed with advanced Roland A/V technologies, the SR-20HD reduces the need for technical support and experienced staff members. Automatic functions run in the background to eliminate dropped streams and help protect your organization from broadcasting inappropriate content. And since all streaming tasks are handled within the SR-20HD, there’s no risk of malware and other issues that come with computer-based streaming on your enterprise network.

Adaptive Bitrate

The SR-20HD’s unique Adaptive Bitrate function monitors the quality of the network connection and automatically adjusts the streaming rate to reduce interruptions due to bandwidth issues.

Mobile Phone Tethering

A mobile phone with a 4G or 5G data plan can be used as the primary streaming connection or a redundant backup. Should anything happen to your main hardwired network connection, the SR-20HD will automatically switch to the tethered mobile phone over USB.

Safety Delay

With the SR-20HD, you can confidently stream unscripted events and prevent offensive content from being broadcast to your audience. The Safety Delay function buffers up to 60 seconds of video and audio, allowing you to switch to a still image or mute the sound if anything goes wrong.

Dual Streaming Destinations

Encode and broadcast livestreams to two independent channels on the same platform to reach a wider audience or create a backup for archiving or later distribution.

Simplified Recording and Playback

The SR-20HD’s onboard recorder lets you capture H.264 MP4 video* to an SDXC card for later editing or uploading to YouTube or enterprise intranets. In addition, stereo WAV audio can be captured independently for podcasts and other audio-driven media. It’s also possible to access media stored on the SDXC card to bring higher production values to your presentations.**
*The recording bitrate is the same as the livestream encoding bitrate.
**SDXC video playback is only available when streaming in Standard mode.

Auto Mixing

The Auto Mixing function ensures that the mix between your connected microphones remains balanced. You can set specific inputs to take priority when someone starts to speak, and other audio levels are automatically reduced as needed.

Advanced Audio Control

The SR-20HD covers the divergent audio needs of single presenters, conference panels, and even music performances. Inputs for up to four professional XLR microphones, line-level signals, and a headset mic provide multiple ways to connect all common analog sources. You can also mix in digital audio from HDMI and USB sources, plus audio from videos and music files stored on an SDXC card.

Make quick volume adjustments for individual sources using the dedicated faders and knobs. And go deeper with EQ and dynamics processing via the preview display and F1–F4 encoders. You also have five user-assignable function buttons to speed up your workflow, providing quick access to Auto Mixing, audio/video playback, F1–F4 functions, and more.
