The Roland V-1200HD Multi-Format Video Switcher is a 2 M/E switcher featuring a new 4:2:2 / 4:4:4 Hybrid Engine that combines the features of a production switcher with the power of a presentation switcher. Multiple M/E configurations can be selected from 1 M/E, 1.5 M/E and 2 M/E to meet the needs of your production. Inputs include 10 3G/HD/SD-SDI and 4 HDMI with 6 3G/HD/SD-SDI Outputs and 2 HDMI outputs. Scalers on HDMI inputs 3 & 4 and HDMI outputs support SD, HD and VESA resolutions. Switch using the V-1200HDR Control Surface or free downloadable Remote Control Software (RCS). The video inputs and the powerful built-in 16-channel audio mixer can be expanded with XI-Series video and audio expansion cards. 

4K Switching Mode (future upgrade)

This functions as a 4K/60p routing switcher by combining four SDI inputs or outputs to achieve a single 4K source.
* 4K HDMI input/output is not supported.
* M/Es and keyers cannot be used.

4:4:4 Multi-Format Processor

There are two scalers between the 4:2:2 engine and the 4:4:4 engine, and two scalers between HDMI IN 3 and 4 and the 4:4:4 engine. These enable switching, self key composition, and matrix output. Signals input from HDMI IN 3 and 4 can be sent to both 4:2:2 process and 4:4:4 process, which means if you choose the latter, you will get clearer computer images. With the scalers you can also display a single picture across two screens.

Processing

An innovative and flexible system designed to easily realize your full creative potential.

Operation

A dedicated V-1200HDR controller provides fast and accurate operation. Dual touch monitors provide quick and easy operation. All the functionality required for operation of a high-end switcher, in an efficient compact size.

Hardware

Multi-format support for a diverse range of inputs and outputs. Two expansion slots are provided for even more compatibility.

Applications

The flexible workflow and functionality supports a wide variety of live production applications.

Broadcast Studios

A wide variety of video effects enhances broadcast studio productions. Composition with freely selectable priority can be accomplished using the four scaler-equipped keyers. The system also features high-end Chroma Key, as well as the External Key essential for title compositing. In addition to PGM and PVW output, two AUX buses are usable for output (when in the 1M/E mode).

Live-performance Production

Multiple M/E choices allow for a diverse range of video production applications in one switcher. The V-1200HD is ideal as a main switcher for concert recording and for a live feed. Through a variety of multi-view functions, even a large number of sources can be checked at a glance. The M/E configuration can be varied as desired to meet the needs of the production. Control up to seven remote cameras ensures creative productions even with limited camera operators.

Events and Conferences

Equipped with HDMI input and output with multi-format support. Freely mix computer and video sources and output to a wide range of displays and devices. Along with ten 3G/SD/HD-SDI inputs, the V-1200HD features four HDMI inputs. Six 3G/SD/HD-SDI and two HDMI outputs are also provided. Among these, the two HDMI inputs and outputs offer multi-format support. Computer sources with varying resolutions and frame rates are supported without a need for video converters. 

Classrooms and Event Halls

Supporting a rich range of control as a video/audio hub. The full-featured routing functionality enables conversion and distribution of a high number of video sources in a variety of formats. The V-1200HD can also achieve remote operation as a video/audio source hub from a variety of control terminals and programs. In addition to just simple video switching, the system also offers functions available only on production switchers, such as distributing PinP video to various locations.
