The Roland V-40HD multi-format live video switcher is the latest iteration added to the mighty V-1600HD and V-800HD model lineup. The V-40HD is perfect for live events or an installation that necessitates the freedom to combine a variety of sources whether they be digital or analogue, computer or video format. It is particularly well suited to support configurations using popular HDMI cameras and computers.

The V-40HD supports true multi-format video – there’s no need to match input sources to the output resolution. Every input has its own broadcast quality scaler that individually adjusts each source as necessary to translate to any output resolution chosen.

The Roland V-40HD has twelve inputs on four channels plus one (background), and five output connectors with independent scalers on the inputs and outputs. This makes it possible to connect HDMI/DVI, RGB, component and composite sources. Input/output resolutions up to 1080/60p or 1920x1200 are therefore supported. The V-40HD is also HDCP compliant.

Equipped with four input system, each of the V-40HD’s systems has three types of input connector: HDMI, RGB/Component, and Composite. This means the user can connect a total of twelve video devices. For output, the V-40HD offers three systems: Output (HDMI, RGB/Component, Composite), Output two (HDMI, RGB/Component), and Preview (HDMI).

  • 4 Channels (12 Inputs - 4 x HDMI, RGB/Component, Composite),
  • 3 Outputs (HDMI/RGB/Component/Composite+HDMI/RGB/Component + HDMI)
  • 4:4:4/10-bit Internal Processing (*4:2:2/8-bit Output Processing)
  • 1 M/E (PinP) + DSK
  • Built-in frame synchronizers and scalers on all inputs
  • Input status LEDs
  • Full HDCP support
  • Preview monitor output (Four-way split screen for Inputs, PST, PGM, or DSK)
  • Audio embedding
  • Audio delay to align the timing with video for perfect lip sync


Input

Scaling Zoom and Adjustment - The V-40HD features scalers that let you make settings independently for every input source. With these, you can take input sources of different resolutions and adjust to any sizing.


Input Selectors - Select from among HDMI, RGB/Component, and Composite as the connector for each input. With just one touch, you can access the video source from any of the three pieces of equipment connected to the respective inputs.


Input Connectors 1 - 4 - Support for three formats per input. [HDMI] Up to WUXGA, 1080p [RGB/Component] Up to WUXGA, 1080p [Composite] 480i or 576i HDMI inputs support an embedded audio signal.


Audio Input Mix analog audio into HDMI video - The V-40HD is equipped with inputs for analog audio equipment. This enables you to embed analog audio in the HDMI video output.

 

Output


Output Selectors - Three types of output formats to choose from. Select SD, HD, or RGB simply by pressing a button.


PVW (Preview) Selectors - Chooses the view displayed on a preview monitor. Select a four-way split screen, PST, PGM or DSK to display. *The resolution and refresh rate of monitor output is fixed at 1920 x 1080/60 Hz (progressive). *Use an HDMI monitor that supports HDCP and 60p signals. *When INPUT is selected (four-way split), the sources are displayed using a reduced frame rate.


Output Connectors - Connect monitors, projectors, or recording equipment. [HDMI] Up to WUXGA, 1080p [RGB/Component] Up to WUXGA, 1080p [Composite] 480i or 576i *In HDCP mode, no video signals are output from the RGB/Component and composite connectors.

 

Effects


DSK - ( Downstream Keyer) Composite logos and text into output video. You can overlay logos and text onto composited and switched video. Scene transitions underneath logos or text that remain displayed is possible. - P in P Two images can be combined into one video image. You can select any of four positions for an inset screen: top left, bottom left, top right, or bottom right. You can also freely adjust the size of the inset screen.


Wipe Pattern - Easy selection of video transition effects.


Video Fader - Switch the sources at the speed you want. Using the video fader (T-bar ) lets you carry out scene transitions, fade-ins, and fade-outs manually at exactly the speed you want.

 

Functions


Memory Save panel settings - You can save the V-40HD's settings in internal memory. Each of the five memory banks can hold five sets of settings, letting you save a total of 25 configurations.
