Roland XS-42H Matrix Switcher is a compact, simple-to-install and easy-to-operate switcher for huddle space and small meeting room video and audio. The XS-42H has seamless connection of up to four computers and tablets over HDMI, automatic audio-follows-video switching, web browser-based control from a computer, tablet or phone and selection of one of ten user-configurable meeting setup scenes. Source content can be switched to feed one or two video displays via HDMI.

The Roland XS-42H uses the EDID (Extended Display Identification Data) protocol to communicate with a connected device to specify the correct output resolution for the PC or tablet. Input scaling further facilitates switching and display optimization when combining sources of varying resolutions. When sources are disconnected, the XS-42H can automatically return to a specified input instead of the typical black screen, letting users display a still image stored on connected USB drive such as a logo, meeting room identifier, meeting welcome greetings or a connected device’s screen saver.

The Roland XS-42H includes stereo RCA outputs for connection to external speakers or soundbars and the internal audio mixer will switch the audio to match the video input. Input of auxiliary external audio sources is facilitated by a second pair of RCA phono jacks. Front panel controls with associated level indications allow adjustment of external line input, line output and master audio levels, as well as headphone output level.
