Four Multi-Format Channels at the Pinnacle of HD Picture Quality.



Easy operation and a diverse range of features for the expert or casual user.

  • - 4 Inputs (HDMI /RGB/Component )
  • - 3 Outputs (HDMI /RGB/Component /Composite+HDMI /RGB/Component + HDMI)
  • - 4:4:4/10-bit Internal Processing (*4:2:2/8-bit Output Processing)
  • - 1 M/E (PinP)+DSK
  • - Built-in frame synchronizers and scalers on all inputs
  • - Input status LEDs
  • - Full HDCP support
  • - Preview monitor output (Four-way split screen for Inputs, PST, PGM, or DSK)
  • - Audio embedding
  • - Audio delay to align the timing with video for perfect lip sync

A multi-format video switcher featuring four inputs and three outputs.

The V-40HD is equipped with four input systems (Inputs 1 - 4 ). Each of these systems has three types of input connectors --- HDMI, RGB/Component, and Composite --- allowing you to connect a total of twelve video devices. For output, the V-40HD provides three systems: Output 1 ( HDMI/RGB/Component/Composite), Output 2 (HDMI/RGB/Component) , and Preview (HDMI).

Stellar Image Quality at 1080p

Supports 1080p video signals - twice the rate of conventional HD and uses 4:4:4/10 - bit internal signal processing. Asserts all the vividness of high-realism, high-detail camera and computer sources.
*Output signal processing is 4:2:2/8- bit.

True HDCP mode. Switching and composition are possible even for fully HDCP-encoded output signals

The V-40HD features an HDCP mode that lets you input and switch commercial digital video from sources such as Blu-ray Discs or game consoles encoded using HDCP digital copyright management technology. This lets you produce video with unrestricted freedom --- for instance, compositing a video feed from a Blu-ray Disc or tablet computer against a background from a live camera. Output to a display can be made via HDMI.
*Commercial use of content requires the permission of the copyright-holder.
*In HDCP mode, only DVI-D/HDMI output can be used. Use of Component and Composite output is not possible.
*The display or projector connected to DVI-D/HDMI output must support HDCP.

Audio embedding feature makes it possible to insert a synchronize analog audio input with HDMI - output video

The V-40HD can input background music, narration, or other analog sound sources, mix and sync the video and audio, and then output the result via HDMI.

INPUT

- SCALING
Zoom and Adjustment.
The V-40HD 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.

- INPUT Selectors
Select from among HDMI, RGB/Component, and Composite as the connector for each input.
With just one touch, you can access the video source from any of the three pieces of equipment connected to the respective inputs.

- INPUT Connectors 1 - 4
Support for three formats per input.
[HDMI] Up to WUXGA, 1080p
[RGB/Component] Up to WUXGA, 1080p
[Composite] 480i or 576i
HDMI inputs support an embedded
audio signal.

- AUDIO INPUT
Mix analog audio into HDMI video.
The V-40HD is equipped with inputs for analog audio equipment. This enables you to embed analog audio in the HDMI video output.


OUTPUT

- OUTPUT Selectors
Three types of output formats
to choose from.
Select SD, HD, or RGB simply by
pressing a button.

- PVW (Preview) Selectors
Chooses the view displayed on a preview monitor.
Select a four-way split screen, PST, PGM or DSK to display.
*The resolution and refresh rate of monitor output is fixed at 1920 x 1080/60 Hz (progressive).
*Use an HDMI monitor that supports HDCP and 60p signals.
*When INPUT is selected (four-way split), the sources are displayed using a reduced frame rate.

- Output Connectors
Connect monitors, projectors, or recording equipment.
[HDMI] Up to WUXGA, 1080p
[RGB/Component] Up to WUXGA, 1080p
[Composite] 480i or 576i
*In HDCP mode, no video signals are output from the RGB/Component and composite connectors.

EFFECTS

- DSK ( Downstream Keyer)
Composite logos and text into output video.
You can overlay logos and text onto composited and switched video.
Scene transitions underneath logos or text that remain displayed is possible.

- P in P
Two images can be combined into one video image.
You can select any of four positions for an inset screen: top left, bottom left, top right, or bottom right. You can also freely adjust the size of the inset screen.

- WIPE PATTERN
Easy selection of video transition effects.

- VIDEO FADER
Switch the sources at the speed you want.
Using the video fader (T-bar ) lets you carry out scene transitions, fade-ins, and fade-outs manually at exactly the speed you want.

FUNCTIONS

- MEMORY
Save panel settings.
You can save the V-40HD's settings in internal memory. Each of the five memory banks can hold five sets of settings, letting you save a total of 25 configurations.

- CONTROL INTERFACE

Controllable the V-40HD via any MIDI device.
A Roland digital audio mixer like the M-200i V-Mixer can link to the V-40HD for audio-follows-video application.
Connect another V-40HD for more inputs.


Use RS-232C for integrated remote control.
It's possible to connect a computer, wall panel or other remote device and use it to control switching, effects, and other operations.

USB PORT
For saving the internal memory.
This lets you connect a USB flash drive and save the internal memory to it.
