Roland RO-VR50HDMK2 (VR50HDMK2, RO_VR50HDMK2, RO-VR50HDMK2, RO-VR50HDMK2) VR-50HD MKII Multi-Format AV Mixer

All-in-one convenience and ultra-flexible connectivity.

The powerful VR-50HD MK II is a completely self-contained AV solution, consolidating video switching, digital audio mixing, multi-viewer touchscreen control, and USB AV streaming into a single unit that’s simple to run. And with the comprehensive rear patch panel, it’s quick and easy to make on-the-fly input assignments to cross-points on the switcher.

Separate feeds for separate needs.

Live streams, HD recording, and the presenter confidence monitor often have separate visual needs from the main program output. The VR-50HD MK II has you covered, allowing you to send any of the connected input devices to a dedicated Aux output without affecting the main PGM destination. Use the Aux assignment panel buttons to switch the source, or synchronize the Aux output with the PGM (mixer) output to act as a built-in distribution amp.

Redesigned interface for free-flowing operation.

The VR-50HD MK II not only does more, it’s also easier to operate via a redesigned user interface. Drilling down into menus while switching is a thing of the past, thanks to dedicated broadcast-style buttons for Aux, PinP, and Still sources. Select, Solo, and Mute buttons are included for all audio channels, speeding up the monitoring process. And with the large touchscreen multi-view monitor, you can view and assign inputs, display up to four still images, execute preview/program functions, and much more.

Pro sound made easy.

Great sound is always expected for events and live streams, but employing a dedicated audio engineer doesn’t always fit the budget. The VR-50HD MK II eliminates this problem, offering a number of automation functions that allow a single operator to switch video and mix pro-level audio at the same time. Use Auto Mixing to balance audio levels, Video Follows Audio to switch cameras based on sound input, and Anti-Feedback to automatically tame howling mic feedback. The VR-50HD MK II is also equipped with a variety of standard audio production inputs, including four XLR/TRS combo jacks with 48 V phantom power, four stereo pairs (two ¼-inch and two RCA), and embedded audio from 3G/HD/SD-SDI and HDMI.

Integrated PTZ camera control.

Robotic pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) cameras eliminate the need for multiple camera operators, provide great production coverage with studio-grade broadcast quality, and can be placed in discreet locations thanks to their small size. The VR-50HD MK II includes built-in support to directly control select JVC and Panasonic PTZ LAN cameras, so you don’t need to employ a dedicated PTZ camera controller or operator. Up to six PTZ cameras can be operated at once via the LAN port.

Intelligence built in.

The VR-50HD MK II is equipped with a number of intelligent audio mixing and video switching functions to enhance your workflow. See the VR-50HD MK II’s intelligent functions in action.

Four-layer composition and still store.

Place keyed video on picture-in-picture, or superimpose a still image* on top of all layers and switch these effects on/off at any time.

*Still position and size compositing cannot be adjusted.

*Still images are stored in volatile memory.

Easy, uncompressed streaming output with USB 3.0.

The VR-50HD MK II uses the same connection technology as webcams, allowing you to capture and share events to reach a worldwide audience. Simply plug into a computer via USB 3.0 and use any streaming service that’s able to use a webcam as its source. Everything is plug-and-play, with no software to download or drivers to install. For recording to a web-ready full HD AV file, use Roland’s free VR Capture software for Mac and Windows.
