Roland VR-5

Roland got it right with its all-in-one take on live production/recording/streaming. First the VR-5 (pictured right) debuted (5-channel video switcher, two mono/five stereo mixable audio channels, scan converter, a couple of LCD monitors, three video layers, plus a down stream keyer, MPEG-4 player/recorder, USB video/audio for web streaming). Last month, the company brought out the mobile VR-3 (pictured left) with a tiny footprint—at less than 5lbs., it can be powered by an external battery like Sanyo’s Pedal Juice. You might have seen it tricked out on a motorcycle with a MacBook and GoPro HD Hero camera—the “world’s smallest broadcast vehicle.”
