This is the updated version of the Roland V-800HD industry standard multi-format video switcher.

Newly added AUX bus delegation layer switches enhance both visibility and operability.

The V-800HD MK II supports a large number of input formats, from analogue to digital, with all the necessary connectors.

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.

Mini D-Sub 15 pin type connector accommodates SD/HD component as well as computer input via RGB.

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.

You can 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.

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.

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 colour 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 colourful CG titles and gradation/transparency clips, enabling you to achieve visual effects that are even more impressive.

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.

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.
