For corporate or volunteer-run applications where installation or live events call for switching and mixing between a variety of sources, the V-44SW provides a flexible, easy to operate interface that anyone can operate. Non-technical users will find a shorter learning curve using the V-44SW because they can rely on presets established in advance. Additionally, the remote control capability via RS-232C or MIDI allows for customized interfaces further simplifying the operation of the V-44SW. V-LINK also allows the switcher to be controlled from any Roland/EDIROL V-LINK enabled instrument via MIDI.
Adding to the growing line of EDIROL video mixers and switchers, V-44SW offers all the multi-format capabilities of the popular EDIROL V-440HD in a compact, installation-friendly 2U rack mount unit. The V-44SW is expected to be available at the end of 2006 for a list price of $9995. The EDIROL V-44SW seamlessly mixes SD video, HD video, and computer signals up to WXGA - 8 inputs in total. The output format is selectable between 1080i, 720p and a variety of RGB formats up to WXGA (1366x768).
The unit features a stellar up-converter and scaler, which unifies diverse video sources into a crystal clear image. The unit also features an array of transition effects, tally interface, Picture-in-Picture features and luma/chroma keyer for overlaying graphics/text. For live visual performance settings such as worship services or club and concert venues, the V-44SW also creates a more affordable way to do multi-screen video by using the EDIROL V-440HD as the master and up to five V-44SW units as slaves.
Using the V-440HD with the V-44SW allows you to take your sources and mix and display them spread across multiple output displays creating visually immersive environments.
