Real engagement in real time
If you’re a content creator seeking maximum engagement,livestreaming outperforms uploaded video by a significant margin; audiences arelarger, watch for longer and post more comments. Roland’s VR-1HD lets youbroadcast dynamic multi-camera livestreams, complete with amazing picture andsound that easily outshines ‘standard’ livestreams from a mobile phone orstatic webcam. Whether you’re a creator, gamer, commentator or presenter, it’sthe easy way to livestream with high production standards. And since you’regoing to get more comments, ensure they’re good ones with the VR-1HD.
Your ‘plug and play’ broadcast studio
The VR-1HD has three “worry-free” HDMI inputs, and each oneaccepts a variety of HD and computer-based video resolutions. This lets youconnect, switch and stream different sources including cameras, presentations,gameplay and even smartphones and tablets without having to think about it. Theaudio from these sources can be blended with the two studio-quality XLRmicrophone inputs and dedicated line input. Best of all, as the VR-1HD isdesigned for live broadcasting, its dedicated controls and top-mounted micinput (with gooseneck mic) let you go hands-free and headset-free whilelivestreaming.
Switch to superior livestreams
When preparing a video for uploading, your editing softwarecan add some impressive layering options, including professional transitionsthat make ‘live-switched’ videos look boring by comparison. The VR-1HD hasbuilt-in Scene Switching to instantly jump between scenes that contain presetarrangements of layered sources, displayed within customizable inset windows.
Set-up the scenes in advance and recall them via the fivescene preset buttons, to make your livestreaming way more interesting.
Video director inside
When you’re presenting a livestreamed vlog or nailing a livemusic performance, you’d normally need another person to help switch cameras.The VR-1HD lets you go it alone with three Auto Switching modes that take thestrain once the broadcast begins;
Video Follows Audio
The VR-1HD switches cameras based on who’s speaking intotheir microphone. If both people talk at once, or if no one is speaking, theVR-1HD can switch to a wide shot showing both presenters.
Beat Sync Switching
Start playing music and the VR-1HD will switch to differentcamera inputs based on your playing tempo or the music in your DJ performance –letting you act as your own VJ.
For extended live streams with no operator, set the VR-1HDto switch between sources in a pre-defined order, or randomly, at your chosenrate of time.
Audio engineer inside too
Put audio on auto-pilot and relax, thanks to the VR-1HD’sAuto Mixing function. Just like having a sound engineer, you can ensure thatdifferent audio inputs aren’t competing, while also checking that the soundremains balanced. You can even set certain inputs to take priority so when thehost starts to speak, the other audio levels are automatically reduced. Audiofrom your input sources can automatically change when you switch video sources,by engaging the Audio Follows Video function – one less thing to worry aboutduring your livestream.
Sound like your best self or not yourself
Nobody talks about good sound when watching a live streambut they sure notice when its bad. Pros use sound “equalizers” to balance thehighs and lows of the audio, “gates” to keep open mics quiet unless someone isspeaking and “compressors” to balance out changes in volume when speaking orsinging. These are all in the VR-1HD to make sure everyone sounds their best onair along with reverb if someone is inspired to sing and needs a littleambience.
Radically transform your voice
Roland makes the legendary VT series of Voice Transformers,used by creators, gamers and singers to radically change their voice inreal-time. This technology means that a male can sound like a female, a femalecan sound like a male, and anyone can sound like a robot, a monster or analien. Derived from Roland’s VT series, the VR-1HD’s Voice Changer effect canbe applied to the mic inputs, and each input even has its own Voice Changersettings, so people can sound like someone else — or something else — entirely.
Sounds and stingers on-demand
Some of the greatest radio and video personalitiesincorporate a signature soundtrack and sound effects, known as stingers, thatbecome part of their brand and image. The VR-1HD lets you add your own customsound effects via USB memory, including jingles or even a theme song, andtrigger them instantly via the four Audio Effects buttons on the VR-1HD’s toppanel.
Connect to your computer, connect to your audience
The VR-1HD uses the same connection technology as webcams,so just hook up to your computer via USB 3.0 and fire up the live casting orrecording software. Then jump straight into a professionally produced, Full HDbroadcast on your favorite platform, including Twitch, YouTube or FacebookLive.
