Live streaming has taken a new place in prevalence in the last few years, and having a switcher integrated into your stream is a massive advantage. Think about Zoom or video conferencing calls. If you can integrate a switcher rather than a single camera, you can boost engagement with your audience by having multiple cameras, and in some cases visual effects and graphics.
The Roland V-02HD MK II is perfect for this workflow. One feature that has been added is a direct USB-C output, meaning that this switchers program output can be brought right into your video conferencing setup, as easy as your webcam. This is also great for direct streaming to Facebook, YouTube, Etc, by just picking your switcher output as your camera source.
Podcasters, and small streamers who loved the original V-02HD will also love the MK II, as it still packs the ability to easily switch between two cameras, and bring in external audio sources, along with onboard graphics and effects.
