Roland XS-42H Matrix Switcher up to four HDMI inputs

Meet. Share. Repeat.

The Roland XS-42H is the switcher anyone can connect to and immediately start sharing information to one or two screens for effective meetings and huddles. It is easily installed without any AV experience turns any flat panel TV into a meeting room system.

DIY — Huddle without the hassle

Professionally installed huddle space AV systems aren’t cheap — and for smaller companies the cost is often prohibitive. But if you can mount a TV on a wall, then you can install and set up the Roland XS-42H, giving you a huddle space that’ll make everyone’s lives easier.

The XS-42H is small, light and easy to position, and the supplied mounting bracket means it can be located out of sight, but ready for action. You don’t even need to physically press the button to change input sources, as the XS-42H can be controlled from a web browser on your computer, tablet or smartphone.

No more ‘guess the input’

Even when successfully connected to a display, you may not see ‘your’ screen because the correct input isn’t selected. This triggers a cycle of chaos as you scramble for the right input settings, while everyone starts checking their smartphones. The XS-42H’s auto input detection solves this problem by automatically switching to a newly connected device, making the transition to a new presenter incredibly smooth while keeping everyone focused on the meeting.

Connect with confidence

The XS-42H can connect and display a reassuring variety of sources. It achieves this in two ways; EDID and scaling. EDID (or Extended Display Identification Data) tells your PC or tablet the correct resolution to output, so you don’t ever need to get involved. Scaling lets you connect, switch and display between a variety of different sources and resolutions – so no matter what’s going in, it’ll come out fine.

Connect to better speakers for superior sound

Although most TV LED and LCD panels look good, the sound is often an afterthought. The Roland XS-42H includes stereo RCA outputs for connection to external speakers or soundbars, for dramatically superior audio quality. The internal audio mixer of the XS-42H will switch the audio to match the video input, using the audio embedded in the computer’s HDMI signal — no extra audio cables required.

High-end touchscreen operation, without the cost

High-end AV meeting room systems often include a touchscreen interface — usually with a high-end cost. The XS-42H lets you use any inexpensive tablet as a convenient touch controller, via the browser application. Once connected to your company network, simply connect to the XS-42H’s IP address and use the tablet to select presets, switch inputs and control the volume — all without having to leave your seat.
