High-Quality Presentations Made Easy

The powerful video capabilities in the VR-6HD make it simple to bring professional production values to business streaming productions. Connect multiple cameras and computers via HDMI for different views, and incorporate robotic PTZ cameras to change angles at the touch of a button. Quickly assign and switch among sources on the fly, including live HDMI inputs, presentation decks, still images, and video clips. You can also create custom feeds for live and online viewers by assigning composition layers to multiple busses.

Multiple HDMI Inputs

The VR-6HD supports HDMI—the most common video connector in the world—and you can seamlessly combine six HDMI sources in Full HD with a range of broadcast and cinematic frame rates and color spaces. Built-in scalers with EDID and HDCP support provide easy integration with sources like computers, tablets, smartphones, gaming consoles, and legacy 4:3 devices.

Integrated Playback of Stills and Video Clips

Enhance events with onboard support for graphics and video playback. Call up still images during transitions between presenters, display graphics, and use PNGs to create dynamic lower thirds. The integrated video player lets you trigger video clips directly from the SDXC card, with no need to connect an external playback device.

Layers and Keyers

Video effects and graphics are must-haves to bring polish and excitement to productions. The VR-6HD’s effects engine features five composition layers that can be assigned to the Program, Sub-Program, and Aux outs, so you’ll always keep audiences engaged. With up to two picture-in-picture windows and one downstream key layer with transparent PNG and external key support, you can manage any creative need.

Assignable Video Outputs

The VR-6HD puts a high-end video matrix at your fingers with three HDMI outputs, a USB-C streaming output, and an ethernet streaming output. Feed program displays, auxiliary monitors, multi-view producer displays, and the online audiences at once, complete with a clean output left over for recording the presentation to an SDXC card.

Professional-Class Digital Audio Mixing

The VR-6HD delivers world-class audio quality with 28 simultaneous channels and Roland’s acclaimed sound mixing features. Comprehensive EQ and dynamics processing is provided on every channel, complete with convenient preset libraries for achieving pro results instantly. Powerful problem-solving tools are also on hand, including audio sync alignment, de-essing, noise suppression, and more. It’s even possible to play back stored audio during streams with quick touches on the panel.

Multi-Channel Audio Inputs and Bluetooth

The VR-6HD offers professional analog audio connectivity with six balanced XLR/TRS combination jacks, high-quality mic preamps, and phantom power. Stereo RCA inputs are available for audio players, electronic instruments, and other line-level devices, and you can mix the embedded digital audio from sources connected to the HDMI and USB inputs. And with onboard Bluetooth, it’s easy to stream wireless audio from any mobile device.

Powerful Mixing Tools

Set up direct control for your most important sound feeds with seven assignable faders. And when you have multiple presenters to deal with, engage Auto Mixing to lighten your load and ensure that the mix between microphones remains balanced. You can set specific inputs to take priority when someone starts to speak, and other audio levels are automatically reduced as needed.

A Mix for Each Audience

Two auxiliary audio busses let you set up unique mixes for a variety of applications. For example, you can feed a monitor system for presenters while livestreaming a specialized mix that’s independent of the in-person program. Versatile routing allows you to freely assign the mix and aux busses to the two stereo XLR outputs, RCA stereo output, USB and stream/record outs, or HDMI outputs.

Shape Your Sound

The VR-6HD combines the full power of the latest digital audio consoles with expansive Roland effects. Four-band EQs and dynamics processing are provided for every input and output, and high-quality reverb is available for music applications and special effects. You also get specialized tools to quickly handle audio issues, like automatic anti-feedback for stage mics and adaptive noise reduction to suppress background noise and hum.

Audio On Demand

With the VR-6HD’s unique Audio Player section and six assignable pads, it’s simple to enhance events with custom sounds. With a quick press, you can trigger sound effects, event announcements, countdowns for e-sports, or theme songs for presenters—the sky’s the limit.

Ethernet/USB Streaming and Onboard Recording

The VR-6HD’s advanced technology makes livestreaming to the most popular platforms smooth and worry-free. With direct streaming over ethernet, computer streaming over USB, and Adaptive Bitrate support, you can deliver high-quality presentations to any audience. And with simultaneous SDXC recording, it’s easy to capture presentations for archiving and distribution.

Secure and Reliable Streaming Over LAN

The VR-6HD’s powerful LAN streaming capabilities allow you to directly connect with Twitch, Facebook, and other platforms without the need for a computer. The Adaptive Bitrate function monitors the quality of the network connection and automatically adjusts the streaming rate to reduce interruptions due to bandwidth issues. An adjustable Safety Delay is also available, allowing you to confidently stream unscripted events and prevent offensive content from being broadcast.

Dual LAN Streaming Destinations

Reach a wider audience by broadcasting to two different livestream channels at once. You can also use a mobile phone with a 4G or 5G data plan as the primary streaming connection or a redundant backup.

USB-C Streaming Up to 60 FPS

Stream to any audience in Full HD to a computer via USB. The USB-C connection offers the same plug-and-play technology as webcams,* so you can begin streaming immediately with Zoom, Microsoft Teams, or any platform that can use a webcam as its source.

SDXC Card Recording

With the onboard recorder, you can easily record an event to an SDXC card and provide your client with an H.264 MP4 video file* for their editing and distribution needs. Stereo WAV audio can also be recorded independently for podcasts and other audio-driven media. It’s even possible to capture still images to internal memory from any video output bus and save them to the card for later use.

Take Full Control of Your Productions

Thanks to its well-organized panel and intuitive workflow, even novice operators will feel comfortable using the VR-6HD. Hardware knobs, faders, and buttons offer direct control for essential functions, while the 4.3-inch touch display provides smooth access to deeper parameters and settings. Scene memory, macro, and sequencing features simplify operation even more, letting you pre-program complicated actions and fire them off with simple actions.

Fast Recall of Complex Compositions

Storing and recalling custom looks can be accomplished with just a few button presses. The 32 scene memories and advanced effects engine work together to provide seamless changes, including synchronizing the transition of all composition layers at the program output. The 100 macros go even deeper, allowing you to build and execute complex action lists that include switching, DSK on/off, audio mixing adjustments, PTZ camera movements, and much more.

Sequencing Magic

The VR-6HD’s sequencer makes scene memories and macros even more powerful, letting you perform perfectly timed cues with ease. Up to 1000 steps can be recorded in the sequencer, and each step can include both presets and macros. Set up your cues ahead of time in the sequence list and trigger them in order for a stress-free production.

Automated Switching and Mixing

When there are many presenters, you need to follow the action and switch audio and video together. The automated video switching and audio mixing features in the VR-6HD make this complicated task simple, greatly easing your workload and creating a smooth experience for the audience.

PTZ Camera Support

Robotic PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom) cameras eliminate the need for multiple operators, provide enhanced broadcast-quality coverage, and can be placed in discreet locations thanks to their small size. The VR-6HD features integrated support for select Canon, JVC, Panasonic, Sony, PTZOptics, Avonic, and VISCA-compatible PTZ LAN cameras. Mix and match different brands as you like and operate up to six PTZ cameras simultaneously.

Deep Remote-Control Options

The VR-6HD supports extended workflows with dedicated software apps and a variety of remote devices.
