Scene memory, macro, and sequencing functions simplify operation, allowing users to pre-program complicated actions and fire them off with simple commands. Professional audio features are also integrated, including multi-channel mixing, high-quality effect processing, and flexible aux routing options.

It also supports SRT (Secure Reliable Transport), an open-source standard for AVoIP (Audio and Visual over Internet Protocol) created by Haivision, providing secure audio and video transmission over IP networks and future-proof connectivity within installed system configurations.

The Graphics Presenter software for Windows allows users of the V-80HD and other Roland switchers to easily create titles and graphics, eliminating the need for expensive third-party graphic presentation solutions. The set-up is quick and straightforward, requiring just a single HDMI connection to send fill and key signals from the computer to the switcher.

Graphics Presenter features an intuitive workflow with a wide selection of ready-to-edit templates, including animated title text, sports scores, motion graphics, and more. The software and templates are available (free of charge) and additional content will be periodically provided for download on Roland Cloud.
