The Roland V-800HD Live Video Switcher is ideal for any live event or installation that requires the freedom to connect any type of source whether it be digital or analog, computer or video format.

True Multi-format Performance
There's no need to convert the input source to match the video output format. The Roland V-800HD built-in scalers up-convert and down-convert any video source to the optimal resolution.

Freely switch between 1080p video that surpasses even broadcast quality. Full support not just for camera video, but for computer output as well -at a full range of resolutions. A new-generation multi-format switcher featuring high-quality built-in scalers on all inputs.

Full Range of Connectivity
The Roland V-800HD supports a large number of input formats, from analog to digital, with all the necessary connectors. The SDI connectors accommodate 3G, HD, and SD. The DVI-I connectors pull full duty for DVI-D, DVI-A and even HDMI using a simple HDMI/DVI adapter. The Mini D-Sub 15 pin type connector accommodates SD/HD component as well as computer input via RGB.

4:4:4/10-bit Internal Processing
The Roland V-800HD uses 4:4:4/10-bit internal signal processing. This lets you achieve compositing and output with no reduction in high-detail RGB signals driven from a computer. The result is a sharp, unblurred display of video and text, even on large screens and LED displays. The V-800HD delivers high image quality for all uses, from live broadcasts to event displays.

Newly Developed Key-compositing Engine
Along with the upgraded internal signal processing, a newly developed keyer is included. Chroma Key lets you adjust phase range, amount of chroma, and other parameters based on HSV color space that is closely related to human chromatic sensation.

This allows you to achieve high quality and tight chroma key compositing even when using 1080p video sources. What’s more, the Roland V-800HD can accept an External Key. This attractively composites colorful CG titles and gradation/transparency clips, enabling you to achieve visual effects that are even more impressive.

Multiviewer Output for Source Monitoring
The Roland V-800HD multiviewer output allows you to monitor the status of all input sources plus the Program and Preview outputs. The convenient HDMI connector enables the use of a readily available and affordable monitor. Use an HDMI monitor that supports HDCP and 60p signals. SDI and composite inputs are displayed at the original source frame rate.

DVI-I/HDMI and RGB/Component inputs are displayed using a reduced frame rate. Changing the channel cross-point assignments changes the order of displayed sources. Still images imported from USB memory are not displayed on the source monitor.
