8-in x 4-out Multi-Format AV Matrix Switcher

Where to Buy

The Roland XS Series - the new line of Multi-Format Matrix Switchers designed for fixed installations requiring high-quality integrated video and audio conversion and switching. Version 2.0 introduces powerful new features for live events and enhanced audio matrixing. A single unit solution for total control of video and audio that is flexible enough to meet the diverse needs of classrooms, conference rooms, live presentations and events.

Digital and analog Inputs

The XS series has eight video inputs. In addition to the HDMI port which can pass DVI signals, the series also enables switching for all analog signal formats including RGB, component, composite and S-video.

EDID emulation

The series features EDID emulation for HDMI and RGB signals, managing EDID information between the display and HDMI source to ensure a stable system environment for HDMI. Near instant video switching is possible within 0.2 seconds even with HDCP enabled.

Video signals can be flipped vertically and horizontally, or rotated 90 degrees

Using this in combination with the built-in scaling makes creative cropping and orienting of the video possible.

Switching and mixing of audio inputs with EQ and dynamics

The internal audio mixer enables switching and mixing of audio inputs with EQ and dynamics processing on every input. Audio mixes can be created from both analog audio inputs as well as embedded HDMI audio inputs. The resultant mix can be embedded back into the HDMI/HDBaseT output as well as analog audio outputs.

Compositing and multi-screen

The internal scalers enable the XS series to scale individual HDMI, HD component , RGB, composite and S-video inputs and mix inputs of different resolutions to a common output. Each output can be in their respective format and display.

Resolutions up to WUXGA/1080p

Resolutions up to WUXGA/1080p are supported for both input and output. Deinterlacing interlaced video for output as a progressive signal is also possible.

Video processing

The series features video processor which enables the composition of the video signal and split-picture in a numerous number of productions. Dissolving transition is possible in Version 2.0. *Output format cannot be changed separately when using the composition function.

All the outputs accommodate HDMI and HDBaseT

Video and Audio signals can be transmitted over a long distance by a LAN cable. *Please access the website of the XS series in order to see more connecting verification information of HDBaseT.

Sophisticated sound processing

The internal 16ch stereo digital audio mixer enables sophisticated sound processing. Along with eight stereo HDMI audio inputs the series can also accept eight stereo analog audio inputs. Each of the inputs can be mixed separately.

Digital audio mixer with various functions

Each audio input has an internal high-pass filter, 4-band equalizer, noise gate and compressor. Audio follows video capabilities are also available enabling audio switching coordinated with video switching. Each audio output has a 4-band equalizer, gate, compressor and delay for proper lip-sync. It also features down-mixing function which makes output to a ceiling speaker possible.

The XS series accommodates mic level audio inputs

A internal ducking function enables the ability to have the mic level automatically mixed above any other audio input.

Wireless control from an iPad

Using the optional wireless LAN adapter enables direct control from an iPad installed with the dedicated XS-80 Remote app. Along with operating the unit, XS-80 Remote can be used to change settings instantly with its memory-recall function. The operation menu can also be customized by changing the layout, tab names, preset names and channel names or the background picture. Control preset change, video switching and audio level control.

Digital audio effects

The XS series is equipped with high quality audio effects. Built-in equalizers are included to balance frequencies and eliminate feedback. Each input has a compressor which enables ducking and a lip-sync delay.

High-speed HDMI switching

All HDMI inputs and outputs and HDBaseT outputs support HDCP. The XS series can switch HDCP protected video at an extremely fast speed of less than 0.2 seconds thanks to the XS series advanced HDCP key management.

HDBaseT outputs

The XS series include both HDMI and HDBaseT outputs. When using a LAN cable, up to WUXGA/ 1080p video signal can be transmitted up to 100meters. HDBaseT is a connectivity technology established by the HDBaseT Alliance. HDBaseT enables uncompressed HD video and digital audio signal to be transmitted over a LAN cable. Use of a shielded Cat5e LAN cable is recommended. Transmission distance depends on the quality of the cable.
