Roland V8 HD
Available to rent in Central Glasgow from only £60. The V8-HD is an eight-input HDMI camera switcher with full HD capability.
The Roland V8HD is compact and fully-featured production switcher. It can handle up to eight HDMI sources, in full HD quality with a host of advanced features.
All eight inputs are mixed seamlessly, with correction for mismatched frame rates or different colour spaces from the sources. Two inputs also have full scalers to deal with different resolutions too. We've yet to find anything that it can't handle. Cameras, computers, games consoles, tablets, all connect and look great.
There are three HDMI outputs, which can be the main mixed program, a multiview preview, or a separately switched aux output. The aux output is very useful for tasks like recording feeds or confidence monitors. There is a built-in multiview on the touchscreen, and you can also opt to have it on a larger monitor.
For more creative polish, you can choose from a variety of composition layers for effects, graphics, and keys. There are 24 preset memories that can store settings, then recall them at the touch of a button. Very useful for key effects or picture-in-picture, you can build quite complex looks and bring them up instantly.
An iPad app is also available, which gives a larger touchscreen area and more hands-on control. This is especially useful for accessing the audio mixer section.
The V8-HD is what you want at the heart of your event, conference, or webcast. Contact us for more details, or if you'd like a demo of the mixer.
Our hire package includes an iPad and 19" preview monitor so you're good to go.
