Roland has released a free firmware and software upgrade for the VR-4HD A/V and Streaming Switcher, allowing capture of a still image from the VR-4HD RCS software for Windows or Mac, plus support for third-size PinP window in addition to the half and quarter sizes currently available.
The new RCS software and firmware updates add titling creation, image capture, and keying capabilities for live production and streaming. The RCS Software v1.5 for Win/Mac features a new titling creation software with graphic import, sizing, and text generation that can be created on a keyed background colour and exported to a Roland VR-4HD video switcher running v1.5 firmware. The image, graphic or combination is captured on the VR-4HD’s recently added Still function in the VR-4HD.
‘The VR-4HD is a powerful live production tool, which now includes the ability to create logos, graphics or text as a key source using the intuitive and easy-to-use titling software,’ says Christian Delfino, Roland VP of Product Management for Pro A/V, Dance & DJ/Synthesisers.
