Roland VR-1HD AV Streaming Mixer
If you’re a content creator seeking maximum engagement, livestreaming outperforms uploaded video by a significant margin; audiences are larger, watch for longer and post more comments. Roland’s VR-1HD lets you broadcast dynamic multi-camera livestreams, complete with amazing picture and sound that easily outshines ‘standard’ livestreams from a mobile phone or static webcam. Whether you’re a creator, gamer, commentator or presenter, it’s the easy way to livestream with high production standards. And since you’re going to get more comments, ensure they’re good ones with the VR-1HD.
System Program Version 1.20
Improve live streaming creative capabilities, the VR-1HD ver. 1.20 update includes Chroma Key visual effects for background replacement, motion scene switching for fluid transitions between complex scenes, and a unique Picture by Picture layout to show two video sources side by side.
Your ‘plug and play’ broadcast studio
The VR-1HD has three “worry-free” HDMI inputs, and each one accepts a variety of HD and computer-based video resolutions. This lets you connect, switch and stream different sources including cameras, presentations, gameplay and even smartphones and tablets without having to think about it. The audio from these sources can be blended with the two studio-quality XLR microphone inputs and dedicated line input. Best of all, as the VR-1HD is designed for live broadcasting, its dedicated controls and top-mounted mic input (with gooseneck mic) let you go hands-free and headset-free while livestreaming.
Switch to superior livestreams
When preparing a video for uploading, your editing software can add some impressive layering options, including professional transitions that make ‘live-switched’ videos look boring by comparison. The VR-1HD has built-in Scene Switching to instantly jump between scenes that contain preset arrangements of layered sources, displayed within customizable inset windows.
Set-up the scenes in advance and recall them via the five scene preset buttons, to make your livestreaming way more interesting.
Stand out from the crowd
Chroma keying and green screens place a subject in front of a background that isn't really there and is a high-end visual effect found in movies and used by weather people. Stand out from the crowd of live streamers to broadcast live from the beach or another planet or use chroma key technology to teach and promote your products all from the comfort of your home.
Video director inside
When you’re presenting a livestreamed vlog or nailing a live music performance, you’d normally need another person to help switch cameras. The VR-1HD lets you go it alone with three Auto Switching modes that take the strain once the broadcast begins.
Video Follows Audio
The VR-1HD switches cameras based on who’s speaking into their microphone. If both people talk at once, or if no one is speaking, the VR-1HD can switch to a wide shot showing both presenters.
Audio engineer inside too
Put audio on auto-pilot and relax, thanks to the VR-1HD’s Auto Mixing function. Just like having a sound engineer, you can ensure that different audio inputs aren’t competing, while also checking that the sound remains balanced. You can even set certain inputs to take priority so when the host starts to speak, the other audio levels are automatically reduced. Audio from your input sources can automatically change when you switch video sources, by engaging the Audio Follows Video function – one less thing to worry about during your livestream.
