Switcher, scaler, expander — with audio processing and video effects

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, a high-quality scaler, an input expander, an audio solution and inline video effects/composition. Save on space and headaches by packing a V-02HD; the 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 Roland V-02HD is a ‘micro switcher’ that’s small enough to fit into equipment cases and camera bags. Designed to integrate with typical video production workflows, the V-02HD has a screw tap for standard video mounts and conveniently attaches onto a tripod to stay out of the way. Its lightweight design makes it ideal for mobile video applications too, especially when hooked up to third-party battery packs for longer location-based shoots.

Multi-application, one solution

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 video mixer makes the entire process fast, easy and fluid for the camera operator.

Dual camera / single operator productions

The Roland V-02HD switcher takes the HDMI output from two cameras and seamlessly switches to a connected recorder or live streaming encoder. The operator can then switch between cameras using the dedicated controls or even by using their feet, via a connected footswitch that lets them continue operating their camera. Audio from both cameras and external sources can be mixed together within the V-02HD and monitored through the dedicated headphone output. Finally, the resulting mix is embedded with the video switch and output over HDMI. The V-02HD transforms a two-camera shoot into a small one-person production studio, for reliable recording or live-streaming even with minimal resources.

Simple, seamless switching

Switching sources in a small presentation can be a pain, whether it’s a signal loss to the main display or the computer’s inability to handle unexpected input signals. The V-02HD ensures a professional cross-dissolve switchover between computers and screens, maintaining hi-res ‘pixelPIXELThe shortening of 'picture element', a basic unit of programmable colour forming the dots that make up an image. Pixel size depends on a camera’s resolution, which is measured in megapixels (MP), meaning millions of pixels. The more pixels on a sensor, the smaller they have to be to fit. An image's number (or density) of pixels correlate to the amount of information and image holds. Cameras with more pixels on the sensor have a higher pixel density and thus more resolving power, able to capture smaller details with much more clarity and accuracy. Higher resolution images can be cropped more agressively and also produce better quality large prints.-accurate’ display resolution with deep 10-bit 4:4:4 colour space. With the simple two-button operation, anyone can pull off professional switching of multiple sources, even if using the V-02HD for the first time.

The input/output matchmaker

Having two HDMI-equipped devices doesn’t mean they’re compatible, especially when it comes to video signals in a variety of resolutions — for example, a tablet’s output may not display properly on the receiving 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 then outputting in a new resolution that’s compatible with the receiving device.

To embed or de-embed? Why not both?

The Roland V-02HD not only lets you embed analogue audio into an HDMI signal — for recording or live streaming — but you can also extract the audio from an HDMI signal to send over to a larger dedicated audio mixer. Where many converters only support digital audio or offer either embedding or de-embedding (and not both), the V-02HD lets you do it all.

Onboard toolkit for fixing your audio

The portable Roland 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 noiseNOISEThe appearance of random pixels scattered over a photo, similar to the grain effect seen in film photography, which degrades photo quality almost as if it is stained. It occurs when taking photos in low-light conditions, with very slow shutter speeds on high sensitivity (ISO) settings. It is caused by amplification done by the sensor when high ISO settings are used. You can counteract digital noise by lowering the sensitivity (ISO) setting of your camera - the lower the ISO setting, the lower the noise in the image. Typically cameras with larger sensors (like full-frame cameras) will inherently produce less noise due to larger pixels on the sensor. 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 colour space, there’s no signal degradation either.

Incorporate time-saving, professional-looking effects — in real-time

Although adding effects via your editing package is becoming easier, more complex effects — for example, blurring a person’s face for privacy purposes – require time and extensive knowledge of video-editing software. Or you could just add the effect directly to the camera’s output and record the result. The Roland V-02HD audio video mixer has 14 visual effects that can be applied in real-time, with adjustable parameters to fine-tune the results plus an additional 5 composition effects so you can add titles, use a green screen with the Key effect, or create a separate inset window with the PinP capability.

Picture your back-up plan

When an input source fails in a presentation or a new speaker arrives but isn't ready to present, the last thing you want to display is a blank screen; or worse, content that wasn't meant to be shared. You can be ready with a still image loaded into the V-02HD placed in between a switcher that doesn't have still image capability and the output display. Simply switch over to the still image in case of emergency.

Control the scene

The dedicated Roland V-02HD remote control app turns your iPad into a gorgeous touch interface for the V-02HD. You can operate the switching functions of the V-02HD, mix audio with virtual faders, change settings and effect parameters quickly and create up to eight custom scenes for fast set-up changes using preset memories. You can also save and restore V-02HD system settings using the Remote Control Utility.
