Take Local Sports Production to the Next Level

When watching a sporting event live or on a broadcast stream, today’s audiences expect the high production values they see when watching pro teams on network TV. With the P-20HD, adding the magic of instant replay to your workflow has never been more simple and affordable. Using intuitive controls and the integrated color LCD, you can easily cue up replays of important action to let fans relive the moment, either on your streaming feed or live event screens—or both at once.


Take Local Sports Production to the Next Level

Record and Replay at the Same Time

The P-20HD records directly to high-capacity SD cards, which are widely available and easy to swap out. And as you cue up and replay clips, the game keeps recording in the background, with no gaps in the action.

Record and Replay at the Same Time

Plays Well with Others

The P-20HD can be seamlessly inserted into a variety of workflows. Use it on its own, or upstream or downstream of any Roland video switcher. Connect two cameras and switch/composite between sources to capture them for replay. Both HDMI inputs feature built-in scalers, providing worry-free connectivity with nearly any video source.

Upstream or Downstream

One Person Operation

A pro sports network broadcast has a dedicated team that handles replay duties. With the P-20HD, a single operator can easily mark, cue, and replay clips while managing other elements of a production. Simply register events as clips with button taps while recording, and then instantly play them back with dedicated panel switches.

One Person Operation

Built-In Preview Monitor

With its onboard color display, the P-20HD makes it simple to manage and execute your workflow in real time. In recording view, the screen shows the current video input, plus critical SD card information like recording duration, remaining storage space, and available time. And in playback view, you can display cropped previews of all video clips for live replay or compilation into playlists.

Direct-Access Controls

Filled with single-task hardware controls, the P-20HD provides a hands-on experience that lets you get the job done with zero frustration. Dedicated transport buttons include play, pause, forward, rewind, mark in, and mark out. A jog/shuttle wheel with optical encoding provides precise, fluid control to scrub clips for replay and editing, while the T-bar lets you adjust playback speed. Engaging the Speed Range function provides ultra-fine control, perfect for focusing in on tight action and contested plays.

Create Highlight and Training Reels

After the action’s over, use the media playlist builder to aggregate clips into curated pro videos, ready for distribution and sharing on your favorite platform. Celebrate the best moments of a game on social media, or distribute practice and training sessions to coaches and players for further evaluation.

Superb Audio Quality

The P-20HD features the high-quality sound processing that Roland is famous for. Stereo audio I/O is supported via embedded HDMI and analog RCA jacks, and there’s a convenient headphones jack for signal monitoring. Onboard EQ, limiter, and delay effects are also available to enhance the sound and eliminate audio and video sync issues.

Superb Audio Quality

Universal File Compatibility

The P-20HD records natively in H.264*, one of the most universally supported file formats available. H.264 maintains high quality even at low bit rates, providing excellent video at reduced file sizes. All of the most popular online video platforms accept H.264 format, letting you upload files created on the P-20HD with no conversion steps in-between.
*For maximum recording stability, the P-20HD automatically divides the recording file every three minutes.

Universal File Compatibility

*The recording times listed above are approximate. They may differ depending on the condition of the card. If some still or audio files are imported, the total recording time may be less than these listed times.

A Winning Workflow Combination

Pairing the P-20HD with the advanced Roland V-60HD* video switcher creates a complete broadcast switching and playback solution that’s ready to handle most any local production. Using one of the V-60HD’s HDMI outputs, you can route any input source—including SDI—to the P-20HD for recording and instant replay.
*P-20HD support for the V-60HD will be provided with a future update.
