V-600UHD lets you transition to 4K workflows as demand and budgets allow. With Roland’s Ultra Scaler technology, scaling is provided on every input, so you can use Full HD and 4K sources simultaneously, and output at multiple resolutions. You can also leverage the high pixel density of 4K camera sources in Full HD workflows for problem-free, visually-impressive productions.

System Program Version 2.0
With the free Ver.2.0 update, V-600UHD transforms into a powerful single-operator production switcher. Ver.2.0 provides all in one control for a variety of LAN based PTZ cameras from multiple manufactures.

High Dynamic Range [HDR]
V-600UHD uses HDR so your events look amazing. You see better, more dynamic-looking pixels that preserve the details in the darkest and brightest areas of an image. HDR provides well-balanced stage lighting without oversaturation for IMAG (and it’s easier to achieve compared with using SDR.) And SDR dynamic range signals can also be input and switched with V-600UHD.

Full 60Hz Frame Rate
V-600UHD delivers a smooth, crisp video image without the blur that’s common when fast motion is displayed at 30Hz refresh rates.

A More Vivid Color Space
V-600UHD supports Rec.2020, the highest-specification Wide Color Gamut (WCG), as well as RGB and Rec.709 standards to display the widest range of visible colors. This provides an increased level of realism and improved color accuracy, especially for red and yellow color ranges.

10-bit 4:4:4 Pixel-accurate Color
Internal 10-bit Color Depth processing reduces color banding and sharpens high-detail sources from computers.

Support for DCI Cinema 4K Resolution
V-600UHD lets you switch and display content at the originally intended aspect ratio, without cropping or letterboxing.

The Right I/O for Your Show
V-600UHD has 4 HDMI 2.0 and 2 12G SDI inputs. Each input independently supports input and scaling of HD, Full HD, UHD 4K, DCI 4K and PC resolutions from UXGA to DCI 4K with no converters needed. AUX destination switching makes it easy to include down-stage confidence monitors, while the configurable multi-view monitor lets you see all your sources, programs and previews at a glance. Each output supports downscaling to Full HD for outputting to streaming encoders or other HD-equipped destination displays.

Capture All the Action with a Single 4K Camera
V-600UHD has built-in Region of Interest [ROI]. This allows you to point a single 4K camera at the stage and use the V-600UHD’s input sharing and scaling functions to crop out up to 8 “camera shots” that you can assign to the V-600UHD’s cross points. 

No Camera Operators Required
“Automatic ROI” is a technology-assisted 4K to HD camera workflow blending facial tracking technology with Roland's multi-shot Region Of Interest. When paired with Canon's XF705/400/405 cameras, 2 of the V-600UHD's Region Of Interest windows automatically pan, tilt, and zoom to follow 2 people within the scene, generating dynamically smooth camera shots, no camera operators required. Setup is straightforward, requiring 1 HDMI cable and 1 LAN cable.

Get Creative with Composition
V-600UHD supports two Picture-in-Picture windows that offer so much more than simple fixed inset windows. You can accomplish results comparable to dedicated screen processors, with fully customizable aspect ratios, sizes and input source scaling letting you display whatever you want, wherever you want it. Combine flexible PnP with the ultra-wide pixel count of DCI 4K to create engaging and impressive screen sets.

Integrate with the Audio System
 With flexible 24-bit 48kHz audio processing that lets you avoid problems before they occur. You can de-embed audio from the currently selected source and send to an external sound mixer using Audio Follows Video. Or program audio returning from the same console can also be embedded in one or all video outputs and then sent to the web, a recorder or overflow room.

Multiple PTZ & Remote Camera Control
When LAN based, PTZ cameras are called into action, take control using V-600UHD. Seamlessly integrate JVC, Panasonic, Sony, PTZOptics, Avonic, and VISCA compatible professional PTZ robotic cameras to streamline workflow without needing a dedicated controller.

The Best Solution for Working with LED Displays
Now you can easily work with low light stages and bright backgrounds; just use an HDR camera with the V-600UHD and the subject appears properly lit.
Corporate events and festivals use pixel widths that exceed the HD format’s 1920 pixels. With the V-600UHD’s support for DCI Cinema 4K Resolution, you can switch content to display images up to 4096 pixels wide, fulfilling the creative vision of ambitious event designers. V-600UHD offers incredibly high-quality “dot-by-dot” output scaling that allows you to directly connect to an LED display controller at the exact pixel dimensions, without the extra expense and increased latency of a dedicated scaling processor.
