The V-600UHD incorporates four HDMI 2.0 and two 12G-SDI inputs
Roland’s V-600UHD multi-format video switcher has been designed to allow end-users to transition to 4K worflows. The switcher provides simultaneous use of full HD and high pixel density 4K sources, along with simultaneous output of 4K and 1080p resolutions. The V-600UHD uses High Dynamic Range (HDR) technology. For image magnification (IMAG), HDR technology reportedly makes it easier for users to achieve well-balanced stage lighting without over-saturating imaging. With full 60Hz frame rate support, the switcher supports BT.2020, the highest-specification Wide Color Gamut (WCG), as well as the RGB and BT.709 standards.
Internal 10-bit Colour Depth processing has been added without the need for chroma upsampling (4:4:4) to reportedly make it easier to read small font text and other fine details, even when the image is magnified. The V-600UHD incorporates four HDMI 2.0 and two 12G-SDI inputs for productions that rely on multiple computer and video playback sources with IMAG camera support. Each input independently supports input and scaling of full HD, UHD 4K, DCI 4K and PC resolutions from UXGA to DCI 4K with no need for external converters. The multi-view monitor lets users view all sources on a single HD screen, while outputs support downscaling to full HD for feeding streaming encoders and other destinations with HD displays.
The built-in ROI function allows users to position a single 4K camera pointed at the stage and then apply the input sharing and scaling functions to crop out up to eight ‘cameras shots’ for assignment to the V-600UHD’s switcher crosspoints. The switcher also supports two picture-in-picture windows, while customisable aspect ratios, sizing and input source scaling reportedly allow content to be placed anywhere onscreen. With 24-bit/48kHz audio processing, audio can be de-embedded from the selected source and sent to an external sound mixer. Audio from the same mixer can also be embedded to one or all video outputs.
