The Roland V-40HD Multi-Format Live Video Switcher is a welcomed addition to the powerful V-1600HD and V-800HD model lineup. The V-40HD Live Video Switcher is ideal for any live event or installation that requires the freedom to connect a variety of sources whether they be digital or analog, computer or video format. It is particularly positioned to support configurations using popular HDMI cameras as well as computers.
The V-40HD handles true multi-format video meaning there is no need to match input sources to the output resolution. Every input has it’s own broadcast quality scaler that individually scales each source as required to fit any output resolution chosen.
The Roland V-40HD boasts twelve inputs on four channels plus one (background), and 5 output connectors with independent scalers on the inputs and output allowing you to connect HDMI/DVI, RGB, component and composite sources. It supports input/output resolutions up to 1080/60p or 1920×1200. The V-40HD is HDCP compliant which allows you to mix copy-protected game and Blu-ray content with other computer and camera sources. It features an input source multi-viewer output that provides a convenient monitoring solution when connected to an HDMI monitor.
The V-40HD is equipped with four input systems (Inputs 1 – 4). Each of these systems has three types of input connectors — HDMI, RGB/Component, and Composite — allowing you to connect a total of twelve video devices. For output, the V-40HD provides three systems: Output (HDMI, RGB/Component, Composite), Output 2 (HDMI, RGB/Component) , and Preview (HDMI).
Supports 1080p video signals -twice the rate of conventional HD and uses 4:4:4/10-bit internal signal processing. This asserts all the vividness of high-realism, high-detail camera and computer sources.
*Output signal processing is 4:2:2/8-bit.
The V-40HD features an HDCP mode that lets you input and switch commercial digital video from sources such as Blu-ray Discs or game consoles encoded using HDCP digital copyright management technology. This lets you produce video with unrestricted freedom — for instance, compositing a video feed from a Blu-ray Disc or tablet computer against a background from a live camera. Output to a display can be made via HDMI.
*Commercial use of content requires the permission of the copyright-holder.
*In HDCP mode, only DVI-D/HDMI output can be used. Use of Component and Composite output is not possible.
*The display or projector connected to DVI-D/HDMI output must support HDCP.
The V-40HD can input background music, narration, or other analog sound sources, mix and sync the video and audio, and then output the result via HDMI.
