Atomos Partners With Roland to Make Recording and Monitoring an HD Live-Switched Multicamera Shoot Possible

roland v8HDToday, Atomos announced a new technical collaboration that makes recording and monitoring an HD live-switched multicamera shoot on Roland video possible. When recording a feed on an Atomos monitor-recorder from the new Roland V-8HD HD Video Switcher you can now trigger recording directly from the switcher.

The Roland V-8HD is the smart eight-input, all HDMI video switcher designed to simplify HD live production. When combined with any current Atomos monitor-recorder like the Ninja V, you have all you need to monitor or record the V-8HD’s output. With three HDMI outputs, you can even connect up to three Atomos devices to trigger, monitor and record. The combination creates a highly-portable, easy to use HDMI switching solution that’s packed with features that take the stress out of multicamera, live video production.

The record trigger is enabled by integrated Atomos protocols. It allows the V-8HD to start and stop recording via HDMI, in full HD quality, directly from Roland’s new switching deck. It’s a neat feature that centralizes capture and control of live multicamera content, streamlining live production by taking away another stage in the process of recording mixed video output. This is particularly valuable when recording live events, for education, worship, live streaming, corporate presentations, esports and more.

Here are the details.
