Feature Packed and Easy to Use for High-Quality HD Video Results
For creative live event video switching, the V-1HD includes advanced video effects for transforming video into creative visuals to support all kinds of performances. Output of your video mix is as simple as connecting the HDMI output to a projector or screen at an event and you can even connect a recorder for capturing your event or production.
The V-1HD offers an intuitive and easy-to-use interface that is visible even in low-light conditions. When a source is being output live from the switcher, its buttons will be lit red, while green lit buttons indicate the upcoming source from the next transition, so you'll always know what's on the air and what's coming up. Plus, the V-1HD will also let you know if there's anything connected to a source by illuminating the buttons of the inputs with connected sources.
The TRANSFORMER buttons can be used for instantly switching the video or applying effects. Three transition selection buttons permit quick changes of mixing style to match style changes in a performance or broadcast. Transition effects include CUT, MIX (4 types), and WIPE (30 types).
This switcher is equipped with a 12-channel digital audio mixer, making it easy to manage your entire A/V production from this compact unit. The V-1HD can mix four stereo audio inputs from the HDMI inputs, the stereo line level input, and mic level input. Every channel is equipped with a delay function to easily synchronize video and audio. There's also an Audio Follow function that enables the audio to transition along with the video when switching between sources. You can further sweeten your audio with Reverb and Mastering functions as well to ensure that your audio is always of the utmost quality. The final mix is embedded in the HDMI output along with the video signal and is also output to the stereo audio output jacks for sending the audio mix to a PA system or recording it on an external device.
The V-1HD is ideal for seminars and presentations by offering picture-in-picture and split function compositing effects that are easy to set up and integrate into your shows. This switcher also supports chroma key and luminance key for creating professional looking broadcasts using green screen backgrounds or for overlaying computer generated titles on top of video sources. You also get nine types of filter effects including silhouette, colorpass, negative, and findedge which can be triggered using the TRANSFORMER buttons for even more interactive visual performances.

The V-1HD can be controlled with the V-1HD RCS dedicated computer software via a Mac or Windows PC, or via the V-1HD Remote iPad App when connected to an iPad (sold separately) via a USB cable. The application offers a detailed view of the sources connected to the switcher and can be used to switch video, mix audio, or change settings remotely.
