All-in-One Design for live production

The Roland VR-3EX SD/HD A/V Mixer with USB Streaming is a live production switcher and web streaming device featuring 3 x SD HDMI/composite inputs, and an HD HDMI/component or SD composite input. The unit processes the video internally using progressive processing at SD resolution. This means the VR-3EX does not introduce interlace artifacts, which results in a cleaner output than with regular SD switchers. Four built-in frame synchronizers, one per input, allow you to support and cleanly switch input video from sources that are not gen-locked. Plus, the fourth input features a built-in scaler that allows you to work with HD resolution video. It features a scaler on the output, allowing you to upscale to HD if you require. This unit is well-suited for plethora of live events, small or large.

The VR-3EX features a built-in Keyer for luma, chroma, and PIP keying effects. It also includes 250 transition and 11 built-in effect types. The built-in 18-channel audio mixer accepts audio embedded in the HDMI stream, the 4 x balanced XLR inputs, unbalanced analog sources via the two RCA jacks, stereo mini jacks, and the built-in microphones. You can also delay the audio by up to 4 frames to adjust the "lip" of your video.

Video Switcher Features:

  • Touch Screen: The touch-screen monitor lets the operator switch video and make settings via the on-screen touch display. You can choose to view from a four-way split input, a single out screen, or simultaneous five-way input and output.
  • Video Input/Output: The VR-3EX accepts HDMI, RGB component, and composite input over up to nine connectors and seamlessly switches between any four of them. Inputs and outputs are switchable using the touch-screen or pushbuttons.
  • High Quality Digital Signal Processing : The VR-3EX processes input video signals at SD resolution using 8-bit progressive internal processing with a color sampling rate of 4:2:2 (Y/Pb/Pr). The mixer also features audio resolution of 24-bit/48 KHz.
  • Digital Effects: The VR-3EX features a selection of 11 types of video effects including: VIDEO FX list: Strobe, Negative, Colorize, Findedge, Silhouette, Monochrome, Sepia, Emboss, Posterize, Color pass, and Multi
  • Multiviewer : Can display all active inputs on the same screen. You can select input sources by simply touching the image you want to select on the built-in screen.
  • HDCP: The VR-3EX is HDCP compliant, although you have to enable HDCP using the menu system.
  • Audio Mixer Panel layout : The panel features 7 physical faders, one for main, and controls for Gain, EQ (LO/MID/HI). Pressing the SETUP button enables in-depth tuning via the touch screen. You can select to use the embedded audio from video cameras and other devices connected using HDMI, the same as using analog sources.

Streaming and Recording Features

  • Streaming: You can stream 480i video to a network, or a streaming service via the USB 2.0 port on the unit.
  • Recording You can record your output to a Mac/Windows machine using the downloadable Video Capture for VR.
  • Remote Operation Software: The downloadable VR-3EX RCS is dedicated software to operate and back-up your settings, by a computer connected to the VR-3EX's USB port.
