Where to Buy

Plug-and-Play for Flawless Recordings and Livestreams

For online content creators, musicians, and gamers to businesses, schools, and houses of worship, livestreaming is an essential medium for communicating with people around the world. With the UVC-01, it’s never been easier to add high-quality livestreaming capabilities to your Roland V-series video switcher or favorite HDMI-equipped camera or camcorder.

Just connect to the UVC-01 via HDMI, plug into your computer’s USB 3.0 port, and start streaming to Facebook Live, YouTube, and other popular platforms. Offering plug-and-play operation in a rugged, pocket-size design, the UVC-01 is ready for action everywhere you go.

Quality You Can Count On

Backed by more than two decades of professional A/V product development, Roland’s UVC-01 drives your livestream with uncompressed 1080p HD image quality, ultra-smooth 60 FPS motion, and low-latency encoding. And thanks to its hardware-based design, it just works every time you need it—efficiently, consistently, and reliably.

Plug In and Stream

Once connected, the UVC-01 automatically shows up as a source in your streaming software, with no drivers or fussy setup required. Like a dedicated webcam, it encodes HDMI to USB video class and USB audio class formats, letting you instantly stream at superspeed USB 3.0 with any service, platform, or application that accepts a webcam as its A/V source.

A Sound Solution

With the UVC-01, stereo audio is embedded in the HDMI feed along with video. And thanks to the dedicated audio input, it’s possible to blend a secondary sound source as well. For example, you can play bumper music from your smartphone, or use Roland’s GO-MIXER Pro to combine a mic and instruments for impactful musical performances.

Reach More People

By delivering your message to in-person and online audiences at the same time, you can achieve a wider reach with minimal extra effort. Using a Roland professional video switcher in tandem with a UVC-01, it’s simple to create these hybrid productions. Just connect the UVC-01 to the second output of your switcher and simultaneously broadcast live action to your preferred streaming platform.

Capture and Distribute

In some situations, you may want to record a presentation ahead of time and distribute it online after the fact. With the free Roland Live Recorder (Windows) and Video Capture for VR (Mac) applications, you can capture high-quality video and audio through the UVC-01 in real time, ready for upload to video sharing sites.
