Designed to enable users to transition to 4K workflows as demand and budget allow, the V-600UHD multi-format video switcher will be showcased by Roland at ISE. By incorporating Roland’s multi-format technology, scaling and format conversion is provided on each of the V-600UHD’s inputs, allowing simultaneous use of full HD and high-pixel-density 4K sources, while also offering simultaneous output of 4K and 1080p resolutions.
Through its full 60Hz frame rate support, the V-600UHD is claimed to deliver a smooth, crisp video image without the blur that appears with fast motion when only using 30Hz refresh rate. The V-600UHD supports BT.2020, the highest-specification Wide Colour Gamut, as well as the RGB and BT.709 standards in order to display the widest range of visible colours for a higher level of realism and improved colour accuracy, especially for red and yellow colour ranges.
Internal 10-bit colour depth processing without the necessity of chroma upsampling (4:4:4) is said to reduce colour banding and sharpen high-detail-source content from computers, making it easy to read small font text and other fine details. The V-600UHD also supports DCI Cinema 4K resolution.
