Roland VC-300HD SDI/DVI Multi-Format Video Converter with Audio Embedding/De-Embedding
Multi-format In/Multi-format Out

Designed for a wide range of workflows in mid, post and live video productions, the VC Series offers flexible format conversion of Digital/Analog, HD/SD or compressed/uncompressed signals. The VC series also accepts signals and direct connections from computer RGB sources. A wide variety of output devices like record decks, data projectors or plasma/LCD displays can be directly connected.

Main Features

vc300_icons
Designed for the Highest Quality Image
4_4_4The VC Series uses high quality A/D and D/A converters for input and output along with internal 4:4:4 10 bit signal processing. From simple format conversion to MPEG encode/decode to complex frame rate conversions, the VC Series delivers professional results.

Compatible with HDV devices
hdvCompatible with wide variety of HDV cameras and VTR’s from Sony, Canon and JVC, the VC Series offers a high quality processor for encoding and decoding HDV in real-time. Roland’s audio technology also makes simultaneous processing of the audio signal possible.

diagram_24p

Supports 24p Frame Rates
Cinema frame rates like 24p and 23.98p are now supported to enable conversion of footage shot with a variety of cameras. Supported frame rates vary depending on Input/Output terminals.

diagram_gamma

4-Point Gamma Correction
The newly added 4 points Gamma Correct function enables adjustment of 
bright/dark part independently. Enhances images to have a more film-like color.

Image Quality
Carefully optimized algorithm of the built-in scaler has resulted in further improvements in the the image quality of the VC. Highly accurate processing is achieved in all types of conversion - up, down and cross conversion.

diagram_sdi_thruSDI Thru Output Function*
You can select the SDI (HD/SD) output to be pre-processor or post-processor.
This enables a monitor output or split output capability.
* VC-300HD only

Copy Protection on i.LINK output
You can add CGMS-D (Copy Generation Management System - Digital) to the output signal. This enables limitation to copy of digital content.

diagram_remoteRemote Control
You can now remotely control parameter setup of the VC from external devices, like a PC, via RS-422A Remote Terminal. This can be also used for parameter data backup.

User Presets
Parameters like input signal, conversion or processing can be saved to an internal memory. Up to 3 presets can be saved and enables convenient recall.

Auto format detection and simultaneous output from multiple terminals
The VC 300HD/VC-200HD features automatic detection of the input source and simultaneous output of the converted signal to multiple terminals such as SDI, IEEE 1394, DVI and analog component. This enables the recording or display of a single source to multiple recording devices or displays.

Bi-directional conversion and scaling
Bi-directional conversion of different formats including 59.94p, 50i, etc. are possible with the VC Series. Multiple resolutions like 480i/p,720p or 1080i can be input/output along with NTSC/PAL conversion.

Gen lock with external devices
The input and output to and from the VC series can be gen-locked with external devices. The VC supports variety of sync signals including analog BB, Bi-level (SD) or Tri-level (HD). The VC Series’ built-in frame synchronizer helps to lock signals from consumer products or computers.

Time code and embedded audio
When performing HD-SDI/SDI <> HDV/DV conversion, the VC Series can pass the original time code and audio stream signals. The audio embedded in the HD-SDI or SDI signal can be separated and sent from the analog outputs. The VC Series can embed audio from the analog inputs to the
HD-SDI/SDI or HDV/DV signal.

Audio Delay Function
Audio can be precisely delayed by milliseconds or frames to compensate for the video delay caused by frame synchronizing or conversion processing. The Audio Delay function makes the perfect “lip sync” possible.
