At next week’s BVE, Roland Systems Group will debut the new Roland VR-3EX AV Mixer (pictured) to the UK market. The recently launched Roland VR-50HD HD Multi Format AV Mixer will also be exhibited.
The VR-3EX mixer incorporates a video switcher, audio mixer, touchscreen preview monitor and streaming-ready USB output in a single unit. With 4 HDMI inputs, 2 HDMI outputs, built-in scaling with resolutions up to 1080p and WUXGA and HDCP support, the VR-3EX also has a full 18-channel digital audio mixer with effects and over 200 video transitions and effects. The compact design of the VR-3EX makes it flexible for use in a variety of portable or permanently installed applications including house of worship, education, corporate A/V and live production.
The VR-50HD Multi Format AV Mixer provides a ‘plug in and play’ solution for live events. Instead of needing a number of separate products, the VR-50HD 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 analog), preview monitors to view all the sources, the ability to record or archive the event and also to stream the event online.
Commenting on the VR-50HD, Simon Kenning, RSG UK sales manager said, “With internal scalers and multi-format support the VR-50HD is a great ‘hub’ to plug in HD cameras and laptops without having to worry about if they are digital or analogue or the formats they output. This has proved a popular feature with our end users as you never know what you’ll have to deal with ‘on the night’!”
