Switcher, scaler, expander — with audio processing and videoeffects
Events or productions often bring serious challenges thatare easily solved — if you have the right equipment. Roland’s versatile V-02HDmulti-format video mixer replaces several standalone units; a simple switcher,high-quality scaler, input expander, audio solution and inline video effects /composition. Save on space and headaches by packing a V-02HD; theportable-yet-powerful device that lets you concentrate on producing your eventor shooting your scenes, rather than trouble-shooting your gear.
Pack in your case, just in case
The V-02HD is a ‘micro switcher’ that’s small enough to fitinto equipment cases and camera bags. Designed to integrate with typical videoproduction workflows, the V-02HD has a screw tap for standard video mounts andconveniently attaches onto a tripod to stay out of the way. Its lightweightdesign makes it ideal for mobile video applications too, especially when hookedup to third-party battery packs for longer location-based shoots.
Multi-application, one solution
Dual camera / single operator productions
Small production crews, limited budgets and tight deliverydeadlines mean that a simple two camera shoot can be stressful — even forexperienced operators. Recording or streaming with a live switcher onsite letsyou present the client with an immediate deliverable and the V-02HD makes theentire process fast, easy and fluid for the camera operator.
The V-02HD takes the HDMI output from two cameras andseamlessly switches to a connected recorder or livestreaming encoder. Theoperator can then switch between cameras using the dedicated controls or evenby using their feet, via a connected footswitch that lets them continueoperating their camera. Audio from both cameras and external sources can bemixed together within the V-02HD and monitored through dedicated headphoneoutput. Finally, the resulting mix is embedded with the video switch and outputover HDMI. The V-02HD transforms a two-camera shoot into a small one-personproduction studio, for reliable recording or live-streaming even with minimalresources.
Simple, seamless switching
Switching sources in a small presentation can be a pain,whether it’s signal loss to the main display or the computer’s inability tohandle unexpected input signals. The V-02HD ensures a professionalcross-dissolve switchover between computers and screens, maintaining hi-res‘pixel-accurate’ display resolution with deep 10-bit 4:4:4 color space. Withsimple two-button operation, anyone can pull off professional switching ofmultiple sources, even if using the V-02HD for the first time.
The input/output matchmaker
Having two HDMI-equipped devices doesn’t mean they’recompatible, especially when it comes to video signals in a variety ofresolutions — for example, a tablet’s output may not display properly on thereceiving display. With both input and output scalers, the V-02HD can take SD,HD, and computer resolutions, before resizing them to fit the display and thenoutputting in a new resolution that’s compatible with the receiving device.
To embed or de-embed? Why not both?
The V-02HD not only lets you embed analog audio into an HDMIsignal — for recording or live streaming — but you can also extract the audiofrom an HDMI signal to send over to a larger dedicated audio mixer. Where manyconverters only support digital audio, or offer either embedding orde-embedding (and not both), the V-02HD lets you do it all.
Onboard toolkit for fixing your audio
The V-02HD has three-band EQ and dynamics onboard, so youcan immediately optimize your audio without having to send to an externalmixing desk. A built-in effects library is packed with presets for commonproduction scenarios including interviews, ambient sound recording, andeliminating wind noise when filming outdoors. These tools even work with inlineHDMI signals, so you can fix your audio issues without leaving the digitaldomain.
When you just need one more input
It’s frustrating when your switcher needs one more input andyou’re all out of options. With two extremely low latency inputs, the V-02HDprovides that prized additional connection without adding any perceptible delayto your camera inputs. And with high-resolution 10-bit 4:4:4 color space,there’s no signal degradation either.
Incorporate time-saving, professional-looking effects — inreal-time
Although adding effects via your editing package is becomingeasier, more complex effects — for example, blurring a person’s face for privacypurposes – require time and extensive knowledge of video-editing software. Oryou could just add the effect directly to the camera’s output and record theresult. The V-02HD has 14 visual effects that can be applied in real-time, withadjustable parameters to fine-tune the results plus an additional 5 compositioneffects so you can add titles, use a green screen with the Key effect, orcreate a separate inset window with the PinP capability.
Picture your back-up plan
When an input source fails in a presentation or a newspeaker arrives but isn”t ready to present, the last thing you want to displayis a blank screen; or worse, content that wasn”t meant to be shared. You can beready with a still image loaded into the V-02HD placed in between a switcherthat doesn”t have still image capability and the output display. Simply switchover to the still image in case of emergency.
Control the scene
Get V-02HD Remote for iOS
The dedicated V-02HD remote control app turns your iPad intoa gorgeous touch interface for the V-02HD. You can operate the switchingfunctions of the V-02HD, mix audio with virtual faders, change settings andeffect parameters quickly and create up to eight custom scenes for fast set-upchanges using preset memories. You can also save and restore V-02HD systemsettings using the Remote Control Utility.
