Roland to Show P-20HD Video Instant Replayer at InfoComm 2022
Roland is showing the P-20HD Video Instant Replayer, an affordable hardware solution for bringing instant replay capabilities to any live production setup, during InfoComm 2022 this week in Las Vegas. The P-20HD is aimed at video production for school sports, coaches, trainers, esports and more.
With the P-20HD, adding instant replay to local productions is done via a color LCD and a single operator can cue up replays of action to let fans relive important moments, either on a streaming feed or live event screens in the venue—or both at once.
The P-20HD records directly to high-capacity SD cards, which are widely available and easy to swap out. Action can be replayed in forward, reverse or slow motion, stepped through frame by frame, or frozen for detailed analysis. The game is continuously recorded in the background during replays, with no gaps in the action.
The P-20HD panel features an array of dedicated hardware controls for a hands-on, frustration-free experience. Transport buttons include play, pause, forward, rewind, mark in, and mark out. A jog/shuttle wheel with optical encoding provides precise, fluid control to scrub clips for replay and editing, while the T-bar directly adjusts playback speed. A Speed Range function offers ultra-fine control, perfect for focusing in on tight action and contested plays.
After the game is over, the media playlist builder makes it possible to aggregate clips into curated pro videos, letting users celebrate the best moments of a game on social media or distribute practice and training sessions to coaches and players for evaluation. The P-20HD natively records in the universal H.264 format, so files can be uploaded to most platforms with no conversion steps in-between.
The P-20HD can be used on its own, or upstream or downstream of any Roland video switcher. Users can connect two video sources via HDMI and switch/composite between them for replay capture. Both HDMI inputs feature built-in scalers, providing worry-free connectivity with nearly any source.
The P-20HD Video Instant Replayer is $3,395.
