This portable live HD production solution is ideal for schools, churches, council meetings, corporate events, sports, trainings, or any other live event.
Application example: AV Studio and Live Streaming
Until now, achieving a high-definition AV studio with live streaming required a large amount of equipment: video switchers, audio mixers, converters for adjusting the input signals of devices with different resolutions, LCD monitors, and so on.
The VR-50HD is an All-in-One Device - a Complete High-Definition Production Center in a Single Unit
You can connect cameras, computers, Blu-ray players, DVD players, microphones, iPads, and more for use as input devices, without having to worry about whether the equipment is analog or digital or what formats they output. In addition to HD-SDI and HDMI output for HD recording equipment, the unit also provides USB 3.0 and 2.0 output. This enables the ability to connect a computer and perform live streaming and recording. All digital video output connectors include embedded audio as well.
Application example: Presentations and Live Events
You never know what kind of material on what devices/media will be brought to a presentation or live event. The notebook computers that presenters bring can have a variety of connectors from VGA to DVI, HDMI, and others. Resolutions are also diverse, and quick accommodation is not always possible. Use of commercially available Blu-ray discs and DVDs can also run into the problem of playback being restricted by HDCP.
The VR-50HD Resolves Such Issues Without the Need for Any Additional Equipment
Even when input devices use different resolutions, internal scalers perform automatic conversion to the optimal resolution. The built-in scalers also let you expand and reduce video and still images however you like for perfect framing. The VR-50HD 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 is a multi-format AV mixer that you can count on to handle whatever material turns up on-site.
*In HDCP mode, only HDMI output can be used. Use of SDI, RGB/Component, Composite, analog audio output is not possible.
