Four Video Inputs and Onboard Scaling
Four HDMI inputs with frame rate conversion let you mix a variety of sources, including cameras, presentation computers, tablets, and video game consoles. And when you have a troublesome source that won’t display correctly, simply plug it into Input 4 and let the built-in video scaler sync and calibrate the image automatically.
Two Video Outputs
Two independent HDMI outputs can be assigned to display one of three different video busses, providing the versatility you need for pro production. For example, you can use one as your main program output for a recorder or livestream, and the second output to turn any HD video monitor into an “up-next” input preview display or expanded multiviewer with 10 windows.
Pro Operation Made Easy
Your passion for a simplified interface led our designers to add quick-action buttons for the most commonly used operations. With one-touch access to the system menu, downstream key on/off, transition type, picture-in-picture, effects on/off, and more, V-1HD+ production workflow is smooth and hassle-free.
The V-1HD+ also includes PGM and PST busses and a transition/fade bar, which are the most-recognized video switching controls in the industry—and the quickest for beginners and volunteers to learn. And with tactile audio volume knobs, signal/peak lights, and unity gain markers, it’s simple and intuitive to adjust sound levels on the fly.
14-Channel Audio Mixing with Effects
The V-1HD+ allows a single operator to do more than switch cameras—they can mix professional sound too. The integrated 14-channel digital audio mixer blends HDMI audio with mic and line sources, and also offers a variety of onboard effects to sweeten mixes.
With two XLR mic inputs and selectable phantom power, the V-1HD+ lets you bring pro-grade microphones into your productions, including condenser broadcast mics. There’s also an 1/8-inch input for a lavalier mic or stereo audio source like a smartphone, plus another stereo input on RCA jacks. Embedded stereo audio from the four HDMI inputs can be included in your mix as well.
With the V-1HD+, there’s no need for a dedicated small audio console. Distribute analog sound to a PA system via two balanced ¼-inch TRS outputs, and use embedded digital audio in the HDMI outputs to feed recorders and livestream broadcasts.
Leave the outboard gear in the recording studio—each audio input on the V-1HD+ has its own three-band equalizer, high-pass filter, compressor, and noise gate, plus a sync delay to align audio with video if needed. The XLR and 1/8-inch inputs also include de-essers to clean up vocal sounds in real time. And with the limiter, three-band equalizer and compressor on the main outputs, you can deliver broadcast-quality sound every time.
A 10-window multiviewer display can be applied to one or both HDMI outputs, helping you manage productions in real time. Cue up camera shots, preview presentations, and choose stored still images before taking them live to the program feed. Camcorder recording status can be monitored as well.
Even if your video looks perfect, poor sound will ruin the entire production. With the V-1HD+, you can always keep track of your audio quality. Each analog input has its own signal/peak indicator, and headphones can be plugged in to monitor the overall audio feed. When using the multiviewer display, signal level meters are shown for all inputs and the main outputs.
Four-Layer Effects Engine
Savvy visual storytellers understand the power of layered graphics and visual effects. With four composition layers at your command, it’s simple to add lower-third titles, logos, social media comments, and more to inform your audience and keep them involved.
The DSK (downstream keyer) layer lets you independently composite a picture-in-picture (PinP) window on a video feed, which is especially useful for live and online hybrid events. For example, when displaying onscreen graphics for a live presentation, you can also overlay a camera shot of the stage speaker that’s only viewable by the online audience.
When using the V-1HD+, you’ll never have to leave your audience with a blank screen when the presentation stops, the meeting goes on break, or the camera power goes down. Simply call up one of four still images you’ve stored in the V-1HD+, or capture stills from a connected input source. And with the versatile effects engine, these images can be used as DSK lower thirds or full-screen backgrounds.
