All-in-one convenience and ultra-flexible connectivity.

The powerful Roland VR-50HD MK II Multi-Format AV Mixer is a completely self-contained AV solution, combining video switching, audio mixing, multi-viewer touchscreen control, and USB AV streaming into a single unit thats easy to operate. And with the comprehensive rear patch panel, its pretty simple and quick to make on-the-fly input assignments to cross-points on the switcher.

Separate feeds for separate needs.

Live streams, HD recording, and the presenter confidence monitor often have individual visual needs from the main program output. The VR-50HD MK II from Roland has your back, allowing you to send any of the connected input devices to a dedicated Aux output without affecting the main PGM destination. Utilise from the Aux assignment panel buttons to switch the source, or synchronize the Aux output with the PGM (mixer) output to act as a built-in distribution amp.

Redesigned interface for free-flowing operation.

The Roland VR-50HD MK II being packed with advanced features doesn't just perform high-end functions, but its also easier to operate via a redesigned user interface. Drilling down into menus while switching is a thing of the past, thanks to dedicated broadcast-style buttons for Aux, PinP, and Still sources. Select, Solo, and Mute buttons are included for all audio channels, allow speeding up of the monitoring process. And with the large 7" touchscreen multi-view monitor built into the front of the mixer, you can view and assign inputs, display up to four still images, execute preview/program functions, and much more.

Pro sound made easy.

Great sound is a priority and is always expected for events and live streams, but employing a dedicated audio engineer doesnt always fit the budget. The VR-50HD MK II eliminates this problem, offering a number of automation functions that allow a single operator to switch video and mix pro-level audio at the same time. Use Auto Mixing to balance audio levels, Video Follows Audio to switch cameras based on sound input, and Anti-Feedback to automatically tame howling mic feedback. Adaptive noise reduction (v.20) helps with noise canceling and hum suppression. The VR-50HD MK II Multi-Format AV Mixer with USB 3.0 Streaming from Roland is also equipped with a variety of standard audio production inputs, including four XLR/TRS combo jacks with 48V phantom power, four stereo pairs (two 1/4-inch and two RCA), and embedded audio from 3G/HD/SD-SDI and HDMI.

Integrated Multi-PTZ camera control.

Robotic pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) cameras eliminate the need for multiple camera operators, and ensures that it provide great production coverage with studio-grade broadcast quality, and can be placed in discreet locations thanks to their really compact size. The Roland VR-50HD MK II includes built-in support to directly control select JVC and Panasonic PTZ LAN cameras, so you dont need to employ a dedicated PTZ camera controller or operator. Up to six PTZ cameras can be operated at once via the LAN port.

Intelligence built in.

The advanced Roland VR-50HD MK II is equipped with a number of intelligent audio mixing and video switching functions to enhance your workflow. See the VR-50HD MK IIs intelligent functions in action at any event.

Four-layer composition and still store.

Place keyed video on picture-in-picture, or superimpose a still image* on top of all layers and switch these effects on/off at any time.

Easy, uncompressed streaming output with USB 3.0.

The Roland VR-50HD MK II utilises the same connection technology as webcams, allowing you to capture and share events to reach a worldwide audience. Simply plug into a computer via USB 3.0 and use any streaming service thats able to use a webcam as its source. Everything is plug-and-play, with no software required to download or drivers to install. For recording to a web-ready full HD AV file, use Rolands free VR Capture software for Mac and Windows.
