Roland Systems Group U.S. demonstrates the new Edirol PR-1000HD multiformat video presenter—a realtime digital video playback system designed for high-resolution video display/performances in concerts, churches, sporting events, tradeshows, clubs, retail, convention centers, and seminars. The PR-1000HD builds on the popular Edirol PR-50/80, which have become standard in many concert tours and live worship applications.

Designed for use in any live event, the PR-1000HD is a unique, realtime visual playback and performance system that allows instantaneous recall of hundreds of HD and SD video clips as well as still images. Regardless of the original format, the PR-1000HD scales video from the DVI terminal as a variety of HD, SD, or RGB formats.

The operator can participate, spontaneously, in what is happening on stage, providing a unique visual performance. In addition to RS-232, RS-422A, and touchscreen support, the PR-1000HD can also respond to any MIDI-based control device, such as a MIDI keyboard. This allows the user to combine digital video clips, digital audio, and still images into a synchronized presentation. Import and export are simplified with HDV/DV inputs, multi-drive DVD, and a 10/100/1000BaseT network. The unit contains an internal hard drive, two removable hard drives, USB, and FireWire ports for large storage capacity while maintaining optimal quality with an internal video format of HDV or DV. This is ideal to maintain quality for LED wall, large screen, and plasma applications. Playback of clips is instant and can be configured to loop or play preset sequences.

Assigning clips, triggering, speed control, audio levels, and other functions are easily executed via the intuitive graphical user interface. “The Edirol product line continues to expand its affordable HD offerings,” says Kim Nunney, president of Roland Systems Group U.S. “The fall 2005 release of the Edirol V-440HD video mixer/switcher kicked off our emphasis on multiformat mixing solutions. The PR-1000HD multi-format video presenter emphasizes our responsiveness to a broadening customer base needing a multiformat playback solution.”

The PR-1000HD can also be linked to the new DVI-200HD or DVI-300HD breakout converter, which allows the PR-1000HD’s DVI output to be converted to alternate output formats such as component HD and HD-SDI.
