Roland Systems Group: View From the Top 2014
Every organization is facing the need to communicate more efficiently both internally and externally. Employees are participating in more and more meetings and trainings remotely. More and more people are expecting to watch important corporate meetings or even worship services at home on their TV, computer, or tablet.
Roland is enabling companies, schools and churches to achieve their communication needs by developing purpose built AV Switchers for live production and web streaming. This started in 2010 with the introduction of the all-in-one Roland VR-5 and more recently with the Roland VR-50HD and VR-3EX switchers. Typical live events today, whether large or small, all require a variety of equipment in order to produce. There are audio sources from mics & playback, video sources from cameras & computers, video playback, video monitors. Even though many of those pieces use different connectors and formats, all of it needs to be connected, then mixed together, then displayed, and captured and streamed online. Roland “all-in-one” solutions greatly simplify production, recording and streaming of these live events. The VR Series of purpose built AV switchers incorporates a video switcher, audio mixer, preview touch monitor and output for web streaming or recording 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 CDN service such as USTREAM as well as any video call service such as Gotomeeting and Skype. Software such as QuickTime or the provided free capture software can be used to record the event. The reduction in hardware equipment, setup time, and both connection and operation complexity ensures a worry-free, easy-to-use solution for any event.
Production and rental companies, churches, corporate AV professionals, and schools are quickly adopting the Roland VR-50HD and VR-3EX live production solutions. They greatly simplify connections to streaming services, video conferencing apps and capture software in one device. The VR Series delivers the highest quality video and audio production for web streaming, and offers an easy-to-use live production solution not found in any other product on the market.
