The XS-42H is the switcher anyone can connect to and immediately startsharing information to one or two screens for effective meetings and huddles. It is easily installed without any AV experience turns any flat panel TV
into a meeting room system.

When it comes to sharing ideas and collaborating, it’s important to create the right environment. The growing popularity of ‘huddle spaces’ show that people need quick, flexible ways to meet and get things done. But how many times have you been in a meeting, only to waste the first 10 minutes trying to connect the laptop to the large screen or projector? And when ‘home’ TVs are used for business, you quickly realize they’re not up to the task – with clunky remote controls and user interfaces that are unsuitable for repeatedly switching inputs.

The Roland XS-42H gets your meetings started in no time, with fast seamless connection of up to four computers and tablets over HDMI. Installed in minutes, the XS-42H means you can lose the remote controls, forget ‘connection anxiety’ and create a meeting space that anyone and everyone can use in seconds - without needing to call the IT department yet again.

No more ‘guess the input’

Even when successfully connected to a display, you may not see ‘your’ screen because the correct input isn’t selected. This triggers a cycle of chaos as you scramble for the right input settings, while everyone starts checking their smartphones. The XS-42H’s auto input detection solves this problem by automatically switching to a newly connected device, making the transition to a new presenter incredibly smooth while keeping everyone focused on the meeting.

Connect with confidence

The XS-42H can connect and display a reassuring variety of sources. It achieves this in two ways; EDID and scaling. EDID (or Extended Display Identification Data) tells your PC or tablet the correct resolution to output, so you don’t ever need to get involved. Scaling lets you connect, switch and display between a variety of different sources and resolutions – so no matter what’s going in, it’ll come out fine.

Get more done with two displays

Using two screens side by side lets you share more information and get more done. You can compare multiple documents, research the web while updating a proposal, or have a video conference on one screen with research material on the other. The XS-42H lets you do all this and more, with ten scenes that can be recalled to automatically switch both screens to the correct input sources, along with the correct audio.

Connect to better speakers for superior sound

Although most TV LED and LCD panels look good, the sound is often an afterthought. The Roland XS-42H includes stereo RCA outputs for connection to external speakers or soundbars, for dramatically superior audio quality. The internal audio mixer of the XS-42H will switch the audio to match the video input, using the audio embedded in the computer’s HDMI signal — no extra audio cables required.

Features

  • Switch up to four HDMI inputs to one or two displays
