Roland displayed its new XS-1HD at InfoComm. It’s a compact, multi-format matrix switcher that combines the power of the popular XS AV matrix series and the size and features of the V-1 video switcher series. The XS-1HD provides multi-screen output destinations for confidence monitor, main, and side screens and overflow rooms. XS-1HD features four HDMI inputs with scalers and scaled outputs all while measuring just under 13 inches x 4.5 inches x 1.4 inches in size. It is power packed with professional live production tools that include keying and picture-in-picture effects with full HD support.
The XS-1HD accepts a variety of video signals from sources such as cameras, computers, and media players ideal for corporate production, worship and rental applications.
Frame synchronisation and scaling are provided on all inputs. The high-quality 4:4:4/10-bit processing accommodates resolutions up to WUXGA/1080p. In addition to matrix switching, a split mode allows up to three inset windows to be composited into a background video for picture-in-picture applications (PinP), while switcher mode affords seamless transition between videos, or PinP or key-compositing, with multi-view preview for real-time operation.
Two-channels of line level audio input and output are provided through RCA jacks. Audio can be mixed internally with HDMI audio via the built-in mixer. Audio embedding and de-embedding is supported, with delay control for lip-sync adjustments.
