Available in March
AMSTERDAM – Roland Systems Group announced the V-4EX video mixer, which advances the Roland V-4 by incorporating HDMI I/Os, USB streaming, HDCP support, built-in touch multi-viewer and audio embedding.

The output features scaled-up HDMI, RGB/component, or SD composite with an additional HDMI output for external preview monitor.
Designed to be a live production switcher and web streaming device, the V-4EX features audio embedding, built-in audio mixer with up to four frames delay to lip-sync a video source. It supports HDCP video allowing mixing of copyright protected material. HDMI inputs one to three accept video resolutions up to 480p/576p and HDMI input four accepts resolutions up to 1080p and RGB up to WUXGA. Although internal processing is SD-based, the output can be scaled up to 1080p or 1920x1200. The V-4EX is expected to be released in March.
