Overview

V-8HD & UVC-01 Streaming Bundle

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.

Tap Into Deeper Control with Version 2.0

The V-8HD continues to evolve with the Version 2.0 update, adding next-generation cue management and live show automation tools that make tough production tasks simple. The update brings many new features first introduced with the flagship V-160HD, including macros, advanced sequencing, transparent PNG image support, and more. Version 2.0 is a free, user-installable update for all V-8HD owners.

Maximum Connectivity

Nearly all modern cameras and digital video devices use HDMI, the most common AV connector on the planet. The V-8HD seamlessly mixes eight HDMI sources with Full HD support, even when the sources have mismatched frame rates and color spaces. And with the built-in scalers on two of the HDMI inputs, you can easily interface with client-provided sources like computers, tablets, smartphones, gaming consoles, and legacy 4:3 devices.

The Power of More

Creative professionals need more video inputs for layered graphics and visual effects, and business professionals often need multiple backup video sources. Having the ability to meet all these needs brings satisfied clients and greater audience engagement. With the V-8HD’s generous number of HDMI inputs and outputs, you’re able to offer clients a vast amount of creative freedom—without increasing the budget.

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:

  • Layer 1 and 2: Start by creating a basic background setup for mixing between two sources.
  • Layer 3 and 4: Drop in two picture-in-picture layers with chroma and luminance effects.
  • Layer 5: Add one downstream keyer layer with chroma, luminance, and [Version 2.0] alpha effects or external fill and key inputs.

Ultra-Mobile, Lightweight, and Efficient

The AV production table is the last thing on an event organizer’s mind. Thanks to its compact footprint, the V-8HD fits effortlessly into any live production environment, even when you have to deal with minimal setup space. And it only weighs around 4 lb./2 kg, making it easy to carry in a backpack or luggage. With its solid T-bar fader and robust hands-on controls, eight HDMI inputs, 18-channel audio mixer, and support for external battery power, the streamlined V-8HD is the most versatile and efficient HDMI switcher available.

Instant Recall with Memories and Macros

With the V-8HD, storing and recalling unique looks requires only a few button presses.

  • The 24 preset memories and powerful composition effects engine work together to provide a completely seamless load between different looks, including synchronizing the transition of all effect layers on and off at the Program output.
  • [Version 2.0] The 100 macros go even deeper, allowing you to build and trigger complex action lists that include switching, DSK on/off, audio mixing adjustments, and much more.

Roland's free remote control software for iPad further enhances this workflow, providing a large graphical interface for setting up and previewing actions before you take them live.

One-Touch Automation

The V-8HD’s newly developed sequencer makes presets and macros even more powerful, allowing a single operator to execute perfectly timed cues with ease. Up to 1000 steps can be recorded in the sequencer, and each step can include both presets and macros. Simply set up your cues ahead of time in the sequence list and trigger them in order by pressing a button on the panel. With the power of the V-8HD’s sequencer, you can tackle the most complex events without ever breaking a sweat.

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.

Built-In Multi-Viewer Display

The V-8HD’s bright, 4.3-inch multi-viewer display means less gear to buy and haul to the gig. You can monitor all eight video inputs, PGM, and PVW plus menu overlay from a single screen, and input windows allow you to keep track of camcorder recording status and embedded audio levels. If you prefer, it’s possible to connect a large external display for an immense multi-viewer experience that lets you make menu changes without moving your focus from the action.

Audio and Effects

A crystal-clear sound mix is essential for professional presentations. That’s easy to achieve with the V-8HD, which allows pros and beginners alike to create engaging mixes that sound great. The studio-grade, 18-channel audio mixer blends signals from the eight HDMI inputs and stereo RCA inputs, while a feature-packed preset effects library provides setups for everyday production environments like meetings and interviews, plus challenging situations that require wind noise reduction and microphone de-essing. Delay is also available on every input channel, so your audio and video sources will always be in perfect sync.

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.

Record Triggering and Confirmation

Many technical elements contribute to a successful recording. But forgetting to hit the record button means the difference between getting paid for the job or not. Via HDMI, the V-8HD operator can trigger Atomos recorders to start and stop recording. And some camcorders even display a recording confirmation icon on the input channel of the V-8HD's multi-viewer screen, letting you keep an eye on the recording status while staying focused on other critical tasks.

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.

V-Series Livestreaming Bundles

For online content creators, musicians, and gamers to businesses, schools, and houses of worship, livestreaming is an essential medium to stay connected with people around the world. The Roland UVC-01 USB Video Capture easily converts the HDMI output of these Roland V-series products into a plug-and-play USB 3.0 webcam feed, ready for HD livestreaming on Facebook Live, YouTube, Zoom, and many of the most popular livestreaming platforms.

Key Features:

  • Video Inputs: 8 HDMI (input 7 & 8 with scaler)
  • Video Outputs: 3 HDMI
  • Audio Inputs: Stereo RCA, and embedded on HDMI inputs
  • Audio Outputs: Stereo RCA, Stereo headphone, and embedded on HDMI outputs
