Introducing the ultimate video production problem solver. This portable yet powerful device is a "micro switcher" that has many key features. Check out some highlights of Roland's new V-02HD device:
Switcher, Scaler, Expander
Events or productions often bring serious challenges that are easily solved — if you have the right equipment. Roland’s versatile V-02HD multi-format video mixer replaces several standalone units; a simple switcher, high-quality scaler, input expander, audio solution and inline video effects / composition. This portable-yet-powerful device that lets you concentrate on producing your event or shooting your scenes, rather than trouble-shooting your gear.
Pack in your case, just in case
The V-02HD is a ‘micro switcher’ and is small enough to fit into equipment cases or camera bags. It is designed to integrate with typical video production workflows and has a screw tap for standard video mounts to conveniently attach onto a tripod. Its lightweight design makes it ideal for mobile video applications, especially when hooked up to third-party battery packs for longer location-based shoots.
Dual Camera/ Single Operator Productions
Small production crews, limited budgets and tight delivery deadlines mean that a simple two camera shoot can be stressful — even for experienced operators. Recording or streaming with a live switcher onsite lets you present the client with an immediate deliverable and the V-02HD makes the entire process fast, easy and fluid for the camera operator.
This device takes the HDMI output from two cameras and seamlessly switches to a connected recorder or live streaming encoder where you have an optional foot switch that allows the user to switch between cameras using dedicated controls. Audio from both cameras and external sources can be mixed together and monitored through a headphone output. This device transforms a two-camera shoot into a small one-person production studio for reliable recording or live-streaming with minimal resources.
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 to handle unexpected input signals. The V-02HD ensures a professional cross-dissolve switch over between computers and screens. With simple two-button operation, anyone can pull off professional switching of multiple sources, even if using the V-02HD for the first time.
Onboard Toolkit for Fixing Your Audio
The V-02HD has three-band EQ and dynamics onboard, so you can immediately optimize your audio without having to send to an external mixing desk. A built-in effects library is packed with presets for common production scenarios including interviews, ambient sound recording, and eliminating wind noise when filming outdoors. These tools even work with inline HDMI signals, so you can fix your audio issues without leaving the digital domain.
When You Just Need One More Input
It’s frustrating when your switcher needs one more input and you’re all out of options. With two extremely low latency inputs, the V-02HD provides that prized additional connection without adding any perceptible delay to your camera inputs. And with high-resolution 10-bit 4:4:4 color space, there’s no signal degradation either.
