V-1HD - A Standard That Set the Standard

A Standard That Set the Standard

V-1HD Connectivity

The V-1HD includes all HDMI connectivity to keep workflows economical, simple, and flexible. Nearly all modern cameras and digital video devices use HDMI—the most common A/V connector on the planet. The V-1HD seamlessly mixes four HDMI sources, video cameras, action cameras, PC/Mac, and more with Full HD support, even when the sources are mismatched, interlaced, or progressive.

Simple Interface

The V-1HD sets a new benchmark in simple-to-use interfaces for setup and control. Connect an HDMI monitor to the multi-viewer preview output. Basic operation requires just a few buttons and the T-Fader, the most recognizable video switcher interface for amateurs and professionals alike. Large broadcast-style back-lit buttons ease video switching in low light conditions. Meanwhile, output fade dials in smooth, fast fades to black or white.

Visual Effects

Video effects, layers, and graphics add polish and excitement to any production. The V-1HD has a three-layer effects engine, so you can create picture-in-picture composition and split screen function. Plus, combine Chroma/Luminance keying with visual effects like silhouette, colorpass, and negative to keep audiences engaged and entertained.

The V-1HD might be small, but its powerful 12-channel digital audio mixer fits effortlessly into any live production environment. Mix embedded audio from all four HDMI channels with a stereo line-level or mic level input. Each audio input channel features delay, EQ, reverb, and mastering effects on all outputs, including both HDMIs and stereo RCA connection. Therefore, the V-1HD replaces many standalone sound processing racks.

V-1HD Automated Video Switching

Automated Video Switching

The V-1HD makes your job easier with two technology-assisted automatic switching modes. Input Scan switches sources in a range of 1–120 seconds in sequence. Beats Per Minute (BPM) Sync is also available, automatically switching Preview and Program at a specified song tempo.

Two Video Outputs on the V-1HD

Two Video Outputs

Two independent HDMI outputs are available. One output can be assigned to display one of three different video busses, providing the versatility needed for professional production. For example, use one as the main program output for a projector/monitor, recorder, or livestream. The second output may be used to split the main program output, turn any HD video monitor into an “up-next” input preview display, or show a four-way multi-viewer preview screen.

V-1HD Remote Control App

V-1HD Remote Control

The dedicated V-1HD remote control app turns an iPad into an efficient touch interface. You can also use the PC/Mac Remote Control Software to run essential switching functions, mix audio with virtual faders, change settings and effect parameters quickly, and create up to eight custom scenes for fast, efficient setup changes.
