Switch to superior live streams
If you’re preparing a video for uploading, your editing software will likely boast some impressive layering options and transitions that make “live-switched” videos look boring by comparison. With the VR-1HD, you also have access to built-in Scene Switching that allows you to instantly jump between scenes that contain preset arrangements of layered sources. All displayed within customizable inset windows. So you can set-up scenes in advance, then recall them via the five scene preset buttons; making your live streams a whole lot more interesting!
Stand out from the crowd
What’s more, the VR-1HD features effects for Chroma keying and green screens, so you’ll really stand out from the crowd. Making your streams more interesting, green-screen effects work by placing your subject in front of a background that isn’t really there. A high-end visual effect that you’ll likely have seen in movies and weather reports. So whether you feel like broadcasting from the beach, or even another planet; these built-in effects will make sure your live stream stands out from the rest.
Video director inside
Typically, if you’re live streaming a podcast with multiple cameras, you’d usually need someone to assist in switching between cameras. Another benefit of the VR-1HD is its smart Auto-Switching modes that take the pain out of switching shots once the broadcast begins! Sporting innovative technology, the VR-1HD intelligently switches cameras based on who’s speaking into their microphone. Then, when more than one person is talking at once; the Roland VR-1HD will switch to a wide shot that shows both presenters!
Sound your best with the VR-1HD
When watching a live stream, no one ever mentions good sound quality, but they’ll surely notice if it’s bad. Helping to ensure high-quality audio, the VR-1HD offers built-in Equalizers, Gates, and Compressors so you always sound your best. While there’s also a Reverb effect to add a little extra ambiance to your voice; great if your podcast guest decides to break out into song, or you just want to live-stream your performance!
