Roland’s new V-1200HD features a new “hybrid” engine that combines a 4:2:2/2 M/E switcher with a 4:4:4/10-bit multi-format processor presentation switcher. M/E modes are selectable and a configurable bussing structure allows up to six video layers of composition and two independent auxiliary video outputs ideal for broadcast applications. Features of the unit include 16 assignable cross-points with 10 SDI and four HDMI inputs, and six SDI and two HDMI outputs as standard. Two HDMI inputs are equipped with scalers to handle multiple formats from 3G, HD, SD, and VESA computer resolutions in addition to two XI-Card expansion slots on the rear of the switcher to expand video and audio I/O using XI Expansion cards. The multi-format processor enables RGB 4:4:4/10-bit processing best suited for computer formats with full scaling that allows for splitting content across two screens. A 4K switching mode simulates a routing switcher by combining four SDI inputs or output to achieve a single 4K source.
