The V-1200HD 2ME video switcher is being debuted at IBC. It features a new ‘hybrid’ engine that combines a 4:2:2 2ME switcher with a 4:4:4 10-bit multi-format processor presentation switcher. Offering multi-format flexibility with a choice of additional audio and video options using the Roland XI Expansion cards, Roland said the V-1200HD was designed for live production and broadcast.
Both M/E modes are selectable and the configurable bussing structure allows up to six video layers of composition and two independent auxiliary video outputs, making the V-1200HD ideal for live production and broadcast applications.
Roland said the multi-format processor of the V-1200HD 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 outputs to achieve a single 4K source. Installing the Roland XI-SDI expansion card enables 4K routing of up to three inputs and two outputs.
The V-1200HD can be controlled by the V-1200HDR control surface; a dedicated controller with touchscreen and T-bar.
The XI-Cards allow the V-1200HD to be flexible in both audio and video configurations for live production and broadcasting applications, said Roland.
