Roland Systems Group Unveils EDIROL V-8 Video Mixer

March 11, 2008 by Mobile Beat

Today Roland Systems Group debuted its highly anticipated
EDIROL V-8 Eight Channel Video Mixer. This next generation video mixer represents the
natural expansion of the industry standard EDIROL V-4 four channel video mixer
incorporating the same primary feature set. Doubling the video inputs and adding
computer inputs truly addresses the needs and requests of the SD video market segment.
The EDIROL V-8 appeals to VJs, schools, houses of worship and corporate AV users who
need more inputs, more effects, and regularly incorporate computer graphics and
presentation software applications in their video performance and presentations.
World renowned VJ artist Grant Davis (aka VJ Culture) comments, “The V-8 is a truly
amazing visual instrument and video mixer. For some shows that require more than 4
inputs we need to use multiple mixers, plus scan converters to get our computer inputs
into the video mixers. The V-8 does it all in one unit, plus it has some pretty cool new
effects and control surface cross-faders”.
The V-8’s sleek and compact design lends itself to portable applications as well as
permanent installations when size and space are considerations. In addition to a
number of new powerful video effects, the user interface incorporates fader controls for
effects on each bus and master output fader. Each of the first seven input channels has
BNC connectors and loop-thru functions for individual channel monitoring. The eighth
input can take either s-video or computer via 15-pin D-SUB. There can be two computers
connected, accessible via a selector switch which auto detects the format accepting
signals up to 1600 x 1200 eliminating the need for outboard scan converters.
