LIVE EVENT PRODUCTION
Supporting live events requires being ready for an ever-changing variety of input sources. The V-800HD MK II is equipped with scaling for every input and a wide range of common video connectors allowing camera, data and smart device sources of different resolutions and frame rates to be automatically detected, scaled and then adjusted as needed. Fine position adjustment for each input can be set in real-time using the joystick positioner control or from the menu displayed on the multi-viewer.
LECTURES, MEETINGS AND PRESENTATIONS
The V-800HD MK II’s 4:4:4/10 bit processing ensures pixel accurate colour making it the ideal switcher for large screens over 300 inches and ensures the crisp detail of hi-resolution data sources are sharply output to today’s low dot pitch LED displays.
The new AUX bus selection layer makes it easier than ever to send a source to a second output destination such as a confidence monitor, presenter notes display, second display or overflow rooms.
HALL, THEATRE, CHURCH
The V-800HD MK II is also a powerful solution for installation in facilities that have both professional and in-experienced operators. Complex settings can be recalled with a one-touch memory recall and a straight forward interface makes it easy to step-up and operate without training. Two still images are assignable to the cross points from a choice of 16 internal stored images. This is useful for displaying corporate or institution logos and safety slides. The V-800HD MK II also makes it easy to create up to 3 “angles” from a single camera source with the high-resolution scaling of the multi-zoom function.
LIVE STREAMING PRODUCTION
Modern webcasts require a variety of camera and computer sources of a variety of formats. The V-800HDMKII simultaneously supports video resolutions of 1080i, 1080p, 720p, 480i/p and computer data resolutions of up to WUXGA allowing for high quality webcast requirements. The built-in PnP and Key Compositing features are ideal for creating informative training instruction and news webcasts.
STELLAR IMAGE QUALITY AT 1080P (3G-SDI)
Supports 1080p video signals at bit rates as high as 3 Gbps — twice the rate of conventional HD. Asserts all the vividness of high-realism, high-detail camera and computer sources.
TRUE MULTI-FORMAT PERFORMANCE
There’s no need to convert the input source to match the video output format. The built-in scalers up-convert and down-convert any video source to the optimal resolution.
FULL RANGE OF CONNECTIVITY
The V-800HD MK II supports a large number of input formats, from analog to digital, with all the necessary connectors. The SDI connectors accommodate 3G, HD, and SD. The DVI-I connectors pull full duty for DVI-D, DVI-A and even HDMI using a simple HDMI/DVI adaptor. The Mini D-Sub 15 pin type connector accommodates SD/HD component as well as computer input via RGB.
EQUIPPED WITH AUX BUS SWITCH
Easily switch sources connected to the assignable AUX outputs with the dedicated AUX layer switches. This is ideal for selecting which source is sent to a confidence monitor or secondary destination.
4:4:4/10-BIT INTERNAL PROCESSING
The V-800HD MK II uses 4:4:4/10-bit internal signal processing. This lets you achieve compositing and output with no reduction in high-detail RGB signals driven from a computer. The result is a sharp, un-blurred display of video and text, even on large screens and LED displays. The V-800HD MK II delivers high image quality for all uses, from live broadcasts to event displays.
NEWLY DEVELOPED KEY-COMPOSITING ENGINE
Along with the upgraded internal signal processing, a newly developed keyer is included. Chroma Key lets you adjust phase range, amount of chroma, and other parameters based on HSV colour space that is closely related to human chromatic sensation. This allows you to achieve high quality and tight chroma key compositing even when using 1080p video sources. What’s more, the V-800HD MK II can accept an External Key. This attractively composites colourful CG titles and gradation/transparency clips, enabling you to achieve visual effects that are even more impressive.
MULTIVIEWER OUTPUT FOR SOURCE MONITORING
The multiviewer output allows you to monitor the status of all input sources plus the Program and Preview outputs. The convenient HDMI connector enables the use of a readily available and affordable monitor.
* Use an HDMI monitor that supports HDCP and 60p signals.
* SDI and composite inputs are displayed at the original source frame rate.
DVI-I/HDMI and RGB/Component inputs are displayed using a reduced frame rate.
* Changing the channel cross-point assignments changes the order of displayed sources.
* Still images imported from USB memory are not displayed on the source monitor.
BUILT-IN HDCP MODE
When playing back a Blu-ray disc that contains commercial content or digital broadcast programming, the digital output is encoded using HDCP (High- bandwidth Digital Content Protection), which is one means of copyright protection. This means that switchers that are not HDCP-compatible will not display or pass-through such video content, even in cases where permission for use in a live event was obtained from the copyright holder. To resolve this problem, the V-800HD MK II features a dedicated mode that officially supports HDCP. A panel indicator lets you check the operating state when the unit is in the HDCP mode.
* In HDCP mode, no video signals are output from the analog or SDI connectors.
* The display or projector connected to a digital output must be HDCP-compatible as well.
Using the shared input function, you can assign the video on channel 1 to channels 2 through 4 and the video on channel 5 to channels 6 through 8. The scaler for each input can zoom into any position in the video image enabling a virtual multi-camera environment. This gives the appearance that you have additional cameras connected.
You can use MIDI to interlink the V-800HD MK II with other products including the Roland V-Mixing system and even another V-800HD MK II.
Connect the V-800HD MK II to a V-Mixer console to achieve a true “audio follows video” solution. When you take a video source live, you can have the audio level instantly recalled.
Operating two V-800HD MK II units in tandem makes it possible to perform switching for 3D video split into two left and right video signals.
