Sixteen Total 1080p Video Inputs. The Roland V-160HD SDI/HDMI Streaming Video Switcher utilizes 8 HDMI inputs and 8 3G-SDI inputs to receive 1080p video, each of which support frame rate converters. Four of the HDMI inputs utilize real-time internal scaling hardware, which separately scale and/or convert videos of varied resolutions into the selected output resolution, ensuring output consistency between sources. Between SDI, HDMI, and USB-C, the V-160HD offers 7 outputs, as well as Bluetooth for remote control.
Forty-Channel Digital Audio Mixer. The V-160HD features a 40-channel audio mixer and up to 24-bit, 48 kHz PCM audio with an effects library that provides auto mixing, delay, reverb, high-pass filter, echo canceller, anti-feedback, noise gate, de-esser, compressor, equalizer, voice changer, multiband compressor, limiter, and test tone output. It also features left/right analog RCA inputs and outputs, stereo 3-pin XLR inputs and outputs, and 1/4" BOSS pedal support.
Eight-Layer Video Effects Engine. The V-160HD offers many video effects, such as transitions, four PiP (square, circle, diamond), four keyer (luminance key, chroma key), two DSK (luminance key, chroma key, alpha key, external key), still image capture, still image playback, and output fade.
PTZ Camera Integration. This powerful switcher can control up to 16 compatible PTZ cameras like the Canon CR-N500 Professional 4K NDI PTZ Camera with 15x Zoom or PTZOptics 30X-NDI Live Streaming Broadcast Camera, using IP or Serial protocols, consolidating all control in the V-160HD. It also supports GPIO, wired, and wireless tally, as well as live production automation with sequencing, macros, and preset memories.
