Roland Systems Group has announced the Roland VR-50HD, an allin- one AV mixer with output for web streaming and recording. The Roland VR-50HD integrates an audio mixer, video switcher, multiviewer touchscreen, and USB video/audio streaming into a standalone device controllable by a single operator. The video side of the VR-50HD includes a 12-input, 4-channel multi-format video switcher that also includes a still store channel for graphics, logo, or frame capture. Inputs can be 3G/HD/SD SDI, HDMI, RGB/component, and composite. Output includes USB and both a main and aux bus, both available via SDI, HDMI, and RGB/component connections. An additional HDMI output is included for an external multiviewer monitor, if desired. The audio section includes a 12-channel digital audio mixer at the heart. Sources can be mixed from any of the 12 analog inputs or from audio embedded in the four SDI or four HDMI inputs. Audio processing includes audiofollow settings as well as gates, compression, PEQ, delay, reverb, and mastering capabilities on the main output. Audio is mixed and reembedded into the SDI, HDMI, and analog main and aux buses as well as the USB output. The USB 2.0/3.0 output enables web streaming with ease by simply connecting to a computer running a live streaming service such as USTREAM.
