Unlock New Creative Possibilities
Versatile, portable, and reliable, the Roland V-8HD brings a world of creative options to live event switching. Its all-in-one hardware design eliminates computer setup hassles and software-based crashes, while the HDMI workflow and loaded professional toolset streamline production and reduce stress on the gig.
Set Up Layers, Effects, and Keys
Video effects, layers, and graphics add polish and excitement to any production. With the V-8HD’s five composition layers, you’ll always keep audiences engaged with visually appealing content. Prepare the content according to client specifications and separate it into layers.
V-8HD Preset Memory Samples
You can use and edit these Preset Memory Samples for setting one you want quickly.
Separate Feeds for Separate Needs
Presenter confidence monitors, livestreams, and recording feeds often require different visual content from the main program output. The V-8HD has you covered with assignment buttons for sending any of your connected input devices to a dedicated aux output without affecting the main feed. It’s also possible to synchronize the aux output with the program output, giving you a built-in 2x distribution amp. And by adding the UVC-01 USB Video Capture interface, you have a plug-and-play solution for sending video and audio to computer-based streaming platforms, from Facebook Live, YouTube, Twitch, and Zoom to OBS Studio, StreamYard, and other advanced workflows.
Automated Video Switching
The V-8HD makes your job easier with three technology assisted automatic switching modes. Input Scan switches input sources randomly or in sequence, while Preset Memory Scan switches between preset memories. BPM (beats per minute) sync is also available, automatically switching Preview and Program at a specified tempo for tight synchronization with musical cues.
V-8HD iPad Remote Control Utility
The dedicated V-8HD remote control app turns an iPad into an efficient touch interface for the V-8HD. Run essential switching functions, mix audio with virtual faders, change settings and effect parameters quickly, and create up to 24 custom scenes for fast, efficient setup changes.
Hands-Free Switching and Control
Stomp on a BOSS single or double footswitch to execute over 100 different switcher commands. Cut to a still image, transition PIP on/off the screen, or drop in a keyed lower third title. It’s also possible to switch the aux output between presenter notes and stage manager messages, turn automatic switching mode on/off, and much more.
