Today at the InterBee show, Roland Systems Group announced the Roland VR-5, a fully integrated audio mixer, video switcher with built-in recorder/player for live production and web streaming. This unique product combines the power of Roland’s audio and video technology into one unit.
Typical live events today, whether large or small, all require a wide variety of equipment in order to produce. There are audio inputs from mics, audio mixing, video sources to a video mixer, computer inputs, video playback, video monitors, capturing the event in some form, and also streaming it live online. The VR-5’s “all-in-one” solution greatly simplifies production, recording and streaming of these live events. The VR-5’s innovative design incorporates a video switcher, audio mixer, video playback, recorder, preview monitors and output for web streaming all in a single unit. As a USB Video/Audio class device, web streaming is effortless by simply connecting to a computer running a live streaming service such as USTREAM® and Stickam™, as well as any video call service such as Skype™ and iChat. The reduction in hardware equipment, setup time and connection complexity ensures a worry-free, easy to use solution for any event.
The VR-5 is ideal for schools, churches, council meetings, corporate events, sports, and live web broadcasting.
