Roland Professional A/V is introducing the V-600UHD Multi-Format Video Switcher, adding 4K (10-bit Color Depth, 260Hz 4:4:4) and scaling all inputs from 1080p to 4K. The V-600UHD includes High Dynamic Range (HDR) technology, supports BT.2020, the highest-specification Wide Color Gamut (WCG) as well as the RGB and BT.709 standards.
The V-600UHD’s four HDMI 2.0 and two 12G-SDI inputs are designed for live event production that uses multiple computers and video playback sources with IMAG camera support. Each input independently supports input and scaling of Full HD, UHD 4K, DCI 4K and PC resolutions from UXGA to DCI 4K with no need for external converters. The configurable multi-view monitor lets users view all sources, program and preview on a single HD screen for easy compatibility with just about any HDMI monitor.
Audio management is at the heart of the V-600UHD, with high quality 24bit 48kHz audio processing. Using the V-600UHD’s audio follows video functionality, audio can be de-embedded from the currently selected source and sent to an external sound mixer. Program audio from the same audio mixer can also be embedded to one or all video outputs to feed with program video to a streaming encoder, a recorder, an overflow room or other destinations.
The Roland V-600UHD Multi-Format Video Switcher will be available Q2 2019. More information is here.
