Roland V-60HD Multi-Format HD Video Switcher

Roland V-60HD is a compact, integrated video switcher and audio mixer, and the latest addition to Roland’s comprehensive line of video production solutions. Its sophisticated feature set is perfectly suited for live event production as well as broadcast, recording and streaming. The V-60HD supports SDI camera inputs plus scaled HDMI inputs for data, computer, tablet and other video sources via a variety of video connections, plus a Program and independent AUX bus for confidence, downstage monitor or side screens. The V-60HD also offers advanced audio functionality including multi-channel embedded audio, XLR/TRS and RCA analog inputs, and multichannel embedded audio to two SDI outputs, plus comprehensive dynamics and auto-mixing.

Portable and easy to operate, the V-60HD supports 6 video channels from a variety of inputs, including 3G-SDI, HDMI and RGB sources with scaling on HDMI and RGB inputs to support both video and VESA resolutions from 480i up to WUXGA. A de-interlacer enables 1080i and 1080p SDI video sources from multiple fixed-lens, PTZ or ENG-style cameras to be used simultaneously without the need for an external signal converter. The V-60HD also supports still image capture and import with two dedicated cross-points to have images ready to go and easy to switch to.


A dedicated AUX bus can be assigned to any of the four discreet SDI or HDMI outputs, providing seamless switching from the eight-input channels (four SDI, two HDMI, or one RGB and two still images).

Audio Mixing
The V-60HD utilizes preamp as well as dynamic effects that include a high-pass filter, gate, compressor, three-band EQ, delay, and ability to select audio-follows-video channel so audio passes through when a specific video source is selected. Dynamics can be adjusted from the onscreen menu or accessed through the Remote-Control Software for Windows or Mac.

Multichannel Audio Embedding
Assign up to eight analog audio inputs to a separate audio embed channel on SDI 1 and 2 outputs to ensure a separate mix pre-effect (dry) or post effect (wet) for correcting audio problems after the live event. This feature is additionally useful during multi-language events for recording the voice-over or language translation on its own audio channel to a separate master.

Smart Tally
Roland’s proprietary wireless tally system uses a wireless LAN router connected to the V-60HD to send tally information to iOS or Android devices on the network.

Resolutions up to 1080p
The inputs and outputs support resolutions up to 1080p59.94 (1080p50 for PAL) or 1920 x 1200 computer resolution.
