Roland V-800HD-MKII
Multi-Format Video Switcher


With a refreshed interface for improved workflow, Roland's V-800HD MKII is an updated version of the industry standard in multi-format video switchers. A newly added AUX bus delegation layer switches and enhances both visibility and operability. This creates a superior and easy to use interface for managing effects and switching for great results - giving you high-end performance for every situation.

Supporting live events requires being ready for an ever-changing variety of input sources. The V-800HD MK II is equipped with scaling for every input and a wide range of common video connectors allowing camera, data and smart device sources of different resolutions and frame rates to be automatically detected, scaled and then adjusted as needed. Fine position adjustment for each input can be set in real-time using the joystick positioner control or from the menu displayed on the multi-viewer.

Typical situations for using the V-800HD MKII include, but are not limited to:

  • Live Event Production:
    • Lectures, Meetings and Presentations: The V-800HD MK II’s 4:4:4/10 bit processing ensures pixel accurate color making it the ideal switcher for large screens over 300" and ensures the crisp detail of hi-resolution data sources are sharply output to today’s low dot pitch LED displays. The new AUX bus selection layer makes it easier than ever to send a source to a second output destination such as a confidence monitor, presenter notes display, second display or overflow rooms.
    • Hall, Theater and Church: The V-800HD MK II is also a powerful solution for installation in facilities that have both professional and in-experienced operators. Complex settings can be recalled with a one-touch memory recall and a straight forward interface makes it easy to step-up and operate without training. Two still images are assignable to the cross points from a choice of 16 internal stored images. This is useful for displaying corporate or institution logos and safety slides. The V-800HD MK II also makes it easy to create up to 3 “angles” from a single camera source with the high-resolution scaling of the multi-zoom function.
  • Live Streaming Production:
    • Web Switching: Modern webcasts require a variety of camera and computer sources of a variety of formats. The V-800HDMKII simultaneously supports video resolutions of 1080i, 1080p, 720p, 480i/p and computer data resolutions of up to WUXGA allowing for high quality webcast requirements. The built-in PnP and Key Compositing features are ideal for creating informative training instruction and news webcasts.
