Roland announces V-160HD streaming video switcher

Roland’s Professional AV division has announced the V-160HD streaming video switcher, the latest addition to the company’s V-series lineup of multichannel HD video switching products.

This is Roland's first with built-in streaming capabilities.

Tailored for modern hybrid production, the V-160HD allows users to connect with live audiences in Full HD with HDMI and SDI I/O and simultaneously stream to any web platform via USB-C.

The V-160HD also features an eight-layer video effects engine, a 40-channel digital audio mixer, and integrated PTZ camera control, plus cue management and live show automation tools.

Eight HDMI sources and eight SDI sources can be mixed in Full HD, even with mismatched frame rates and colour spaces. Built-in scalers are provided on four of the HDMI inputs for interfacing with computers, tablets, smartphones, gaming consoles, and legacy 4:3 devices. And seven total outputs—three HDMI, three SDI, and one USB-C—are available to feed program displays, auxiliary monitors, multi-view producer displays, streaming software, recorders, and more.

Advanced workflow tools in the V-160HD allow a single operator to execute multiple functions with a single press. The 30 preset memories and effects engine work together for scene changes, including synchronising the transition of all composition layers at the program output. The 100 macros go even deeper, providing one-touch control of complex action lists that can include switching, DSK on/off, audio mixing adjustments, PTZ camera movements, and more.
