Everything you need, on a single screen: The Roland VP-42H Video Processor layers and arranges multiple video sources to a single screen with dynamic transitions for effective and engaging presentations, digital signage and meeting applications.
The standard of visual content for presentations and events is increasing all the time. While some venues support multiple displays that can simultaneously output IMAG or presentation materials, it’s not always practical or affordable. But if you can’t make it work with multiple screens, then how about using a single large screen that can display everything you need — complete with multiple inset windows and slick, eye-catching transitions?
Traditionally, layering and switching multiple sources within a single display is complicated and expensive, requiring highly skilled operators to keep it all working. This has pushed the technology out of reach for most event producers — until now. The Roland VP-42H video processor offers customizable compositions for up to four inputs, with motion-based scene switching for a stunning visual impact.
Maximum effect, minimum effort: The VP-42H goes way beyond typical switchers. You can instantly switch between ‘scenes’ containing preset arrangements of layered sources in customizable inset windows. The VP-42H smoothly transitions between current and next scenes by automatically moving and resizing the windows to their new positions. And highly impressive scene changes that used to take hours to program now happen at the touch of a button.
Simple, solid switching: Not all events require creative display and advanced scene transition capabilities. For simpler scenarios, the VP-42H functions as a true cross-dissolve seamless switcher, with a keyer to create overlays and the ability to display still images via USB drive — perfect for logos and safety slides.
Flexible audio capability: The Roland VP-42H includes stereo RCA outputs for de-embedding audio from connected HDMI sources and outputting it to other devices such as speakers and mixers. Levels for each source can be set by the internal audio mixer, and if the VP-42H is being used as a compositor for recording or streaming, the audio from an external mixer or other sources can be connected to the RCA inputs and embedded into the HDMI output signal.
Fast and convenient browser-based setup: Quickly configure scenes by using the web browser interface for your network-connected VP-42H. Each input’s layer can be scaled, cropped, zoomed and positioned by simply clicking and dragging. So even at a large event, a VP-42H connected to a big display will be up and running in seconds, letting you use a wirelessly connected tablet to set up compositions in no time.
