Applications and Example Connections

Live Event Production


Supporting live events requires being ready for an ever-changing variety of input sources. The V-800HD MK II is equipped with scaling for every input and a wide range of common video connectors allowing camera, data and smart device sources of different resolutions and frame rates to be automatically detected, scaled and then adjusted as needed. Fine position adjustment for each input can be set in real-time using the joystick positioner control or from the menu displayed on the multi-viewer.

Lectures, Meetings and Presentations

The V-800HD MK II’s 4:4:4/10 bit processing ensures pixel accurate color making it the ideal switcher for large screens over 300 inches and ensures the crisp detail of hi-resolution data sources are sharply output to today’s low dot pitch LED displays.
The new AUX bus selection layer makes it easier than ever to send a source to a second output destination such as a confidence monitor, presenter notes display, second display or overflow rooms.

Hall, Theater, Church

The V-800HD MK II is also a powerful solution for installation in facilities that have both professional and in-experienced operators. Complex settings can be recalled with a one-touch memory recall and a straight forward interface makes it easy to step-up and operate without training. Two still images are assignable to the cross points from a choice of 16 internal stored images. This is useful for displaying corporate or institution logos and safety slides. The V-800HD MK II also makes it easy to create up to 3 “angles” from a single camera source with the high-resolution scaling of the multi-zoom function.

Live Streaming Production


Webcast Switching

Modern webcasts require a variety of camera and computer sources of a variety of formats. The V-800HDMKII simultaneously supports video resolutions of 1080i, 1080p, 720p, 480i/p and computer data resolutions of up to WUXGA allowing for high quality webcast requirements. The built-in PnP and Key Compositing features are ideal for creating informative training instruction and news webcasts.

Stellar Image Quality at 1080p (3G-SDI)

Supports 1080p video signals at bit rates as high as 3 Gbps — twice the rate of conventional HD.
Asserts all the vividness of high-realism, high-detail camera and computer sources.

True Multi-format PERFORMANCE

There's no need to convert the input source to match the video output format. The built-in scalers up-convert and down-convert any video source to the optimal resolution.

Full Range of Connectivity

The V-800HD MK II supports a large number of input formats, from analog to digital, with all the necessary connectors. The SDI connectors accommodate 3G, HD, and SD. The DVI-I connectors pull full duty for DVI-D, DVI-A and even HDMI using a simple HDMI/DVI adapter. The Mini D-Sub 15 pin type connector accommodates SD/HD component as well as computer input via RGB.

Equipped with AUX bus switch

Easily switch sources connected to the assignable AUX outputs with the dedicated AUX layer switches. This is ideal for selecting which source is sent to a confidence monitor or secondary destination.

A New Design Ideal for Live Performances and Events

4:4:4/10-bit Internal Processing

The V-800HD MK II uses 4:4:4/10-bit internal signal processing. This lets you achieve compositing and output with no reduction in high-detail RGB signals driven from a computer. The result is a sharp, unblurred display of video and text, even on large screens and LED displays. The V-800HD MK II delivers high image quality for all uses, from live broadcasts to event displays.

Crisp output per pixel

Newly Developed Key-compositing Engine

Along with the upgraded internal signal processing, a newly developed keyer is included. Chroma Key lets you adjust phase range, amount of chroma, and other parameters based on HSV color space that is closely related to human chromatic sensation. This allows you to achieve high quality and tight chroma key compositing even when using 1080p video sources. What’s more, the V-800HD MK II can accept an External Key. This attractively composites colorful CG titles and gradation/transparency clips, enabling you to achieve visual effects that are even more impressive.

Multiviewer Output for Source Monitoring

The multiviewer output allows you to monitor the status of all input sources plus the Program and Preview outputs. The convenient HDMI connector enables the use of a readily available and affordable monitor.

  • * Use an HDMI monitor that supports HDCP and 60p signals.
  • * SDI and composite inputs are displayed at the original source frame rate.
    DVI-I/HDMI and RGB/Component inputs are displayed using a reduced frame rate.
  • * Changing the channel cross-point assignments changes the order of displayed sources.
  • * Still images imported from USB memory are not displayed on the source monitor.

Built-in HDCP Mode

When playing back a Blu-ray disc that contains commercial content or digital broadcast programming, the digital output is encoded using HDCP (High- bandwidth Digital Content Protection), which is one means of copyright protection. This means that switchers that are not HDCP-compatible will not display or pass-through such video content, even in cases where permission for use in a live event was obtained from the copyright holder. To resolve this problem, the V-800HD MK II features a dedicated mode that officially supports HDCP. A panel indicator lets you check the operating state when the unit is in the HDCP mode.

  • * In HDCP mode, no video signals are output from the analog or SDI connectors.
  • * The display or projector connected to a digital output must be HDCP-compatible as well.

High-end Performance for Every Situation

A superior and easy to use interface for managing effects and switching for great results.

SCALINGScalers You Can Use Any Way You Like
The V-800HD MK II features scalers that let you make settings independently for every input source. With these, you can take input sources of different resolutions and adjust to any sizing and resolution including odd-sized LED walls. You can freely scale digital, analog RGB, and component sources.
PinP/KEY/DSK (Down Stream Keyer)A Full Range of Keyers
In addition to the newly designed Picture-in-Picture (PinP), Luminance Key, Chroma Key, and DSK for 4:4:4/10-bit input, you can also use an External Key. * DSK cannot be used during External Key operations.
PinP (Picture in Picture)
DSK (Downstream Keyer)
New selector switch on AUX bus. It is possible to output a completely different image from the main bus switching image. You can send the image after the position adjustment by the scaler from the switch on the front panel in a cut change.
USB MEMORYUSB Port for Importing Still Images
The V-800HD MK II can store up to 16 still images imported from a USB memory device.
MEMORYMemory Banks Supporting Worry-free Configuration Recall
You can save eight sets of panel settings in each of eight banks, for a total of 64 sets. Pre-saving complex settings in this way lets you call them up instantly when they're needed.
INPUTAssignable Cross-points For the Layout You Want
You can assign video sources to cross-points in any order you like instead of having to use the numerical order of the connectors on the rear panel. This lets you reorder and shift video feeds when sudden changes in camera lines or differences in format create blanks between cross-points.
* Removable magnetic label template displaying the factory-default state is included.
TRANSITIONCarefully Selected Transition Patterns
The simple design makes selecting a transition pattern as easy as pressing an icon-marked button. You can also set the length of transition times precisely, using either seconds or frames.
DVI-I/HDMI InputUp to WUXGA, 1080p
A slider switch selects either DVI-D or DVI-A. Support for HDMI is also possible through use of a simple HDMI/DVI adapter. Supports HDCP input.
COMPOSITE Input480i or 576i
The V-800HD MK II lets you use four analog composite inputs.
Using a conversion cable lets you input analog component signals in addition to VGA type output from a computer.
SDI InputUp to 1080p
The V-800HD MK II supports three formats of digital video signals: 3G, HD, and SD.
RGB/COMPONENT OutputUp to WUXGA, 1080p
The V-800HD MK II can accommodate projectors and other video devices that accept only analog input. What's more, the built-in scalers let you specify resolutions that differ from the main output resolution.
SD Output480i or 576i
This provides a constant down-scaled composite signal regardless of the main output resolution.
Multiviewer Output1080/60p with HDCP
Monitor your active input sources along with Program and Preview.
DVI-D/HDMI OutputUp to WUXGA, 1080p
The V-800HD MK II is equipped with two DVI-D/HDMI outputs for connecting displays/projectors and is HDCP-compatible.
SDI OutputUp to 1080p
Two SDI outputs are provided supporting 3G, HD, and SD signals.


Using the shared input function, you can assign the video on channel 1 to channels 2 through 4 and the video on channel 5 to channels 6 through 8. The scaler for each input can zoom into any position in the video image enabling a virtual multi-camera environment. This gives the appearance that you have additional cameras connected.

MIDI Control

You can use MIDI to interlink the V-800HD MK II with other products including the Roland V-Mixing system and even another V-800HD MK II.

Connect the V-800HD MK II to a V-Mixer console to achieve a true "audio follows video" solution. When you take a video source live, you can have the audio level instantly recalled.

Operating two V-800HD MK II units in tandem makes it possible to perform switching for 3D video split into two left and right video signals.
