The PR-80 is one of the popular Roland PR Video Presenter Series. The PR-80 is a unique video display and performance system designed for video display or visual performances used in retail, concerts, churches, tradeshows, hotels, conventions centers and seminars. The internal hard-drive storage format is DV so display quality remains very high – ideal for plasma and large display applications. Playback of clips is instant and can be configured in preset sequences. Real-time presentations can be triggered on demand using a touchscreen, RS-232C device, MIDI controller, optional DV-7C controller, mouse or keyboard. The PR-80 is capable of streaming two high quality DV streams simultaneously that can be mixed internally without the need for an additional mixing unit. For ad display installations, the PR-80 contains a Scheduler for display management and is also networkable sharing content folders and clock adjustments remotely. Multiple PR-80s can be setup in a master/slave configuration for synchronized multiscreen applications. In addition, it can be turned into a stand-alone KIOSK via its customizable GUI.

The PR-80 also includes the full functionality of our DV-7DL Pro Direct Linear Editing system. The editing functions included with the PR-80 presenter allow one unit to both create and present content as well as make critical, last-minute changes to presentation content at a venue or event.
