Integrated audio and video solutions for conversion, playback, recording and HD streaming will be the main focus for Roland Systems Group at IBC2014 demonstrating products such as the VR-50HD HD multi format AV mixer. The VR-50HD offers a complete HD AV studio with outputs for web streaming and recording in one single unit and adds full HD/multi-format capability to the VR Series line up for a professional production.
The ‘all in one’ VR-50HD reduces the hardware and the set-up time required and provides a ‘plug in and play’ solution. Instead of needing a number of separate products, it combines an audio mixer to mix the audio inputs from various sources including microphones, a video mixer to mix video and computer sources using different connectors (digital and analogue), preview monitors to view all the sources, the ability to record or archive the event and also to stream the event online.
The video side of the VR-50HD features a 12-input, 4-channel multi-format video switcher that also includes a still store channel for graphics, logo or frame capture. Inputs can be 3G/HD/SD SDI, HDMI, RGB/component and composite. Outputs include USB and both a Main and Aux bus, both available via SDI, HDMI and RGB/Component connections. An additional HDMI output is included for an external multi-viewer monitor if desired.
