Roland V-600UHD

4K HDR Multi-Format Video Switcher

Upgrade your events to 4K HDR — one input at a time. As clients and audiences start demanding 4K at events, your current HD sources and displays shouldn’t become obsolete. The V-600UHD lets you transition to 4K workflows as demand and budgets allow. With Roland’s Ultra Scaler technology, scaling is provided on every input, so you can use Full HD and 4K sources simultaneously, and output at multiple resolutions. You can also leverage the high pixel density of 4K camera sources in Full HD workflows for problem-free, visually-impressive productions.

When updated to system program Ver.1.10, V-600UHD users experience improved workflow, including the much anticipated Still Capture and Output Freeze. Connect to more devices with more input/output resolutions and frame rates. The new EDID emulator forces HDMI sources to behave, including troublesome PC/Mac. The 4K to HD Region Of Interest (ROI) interface is more straightforward; each ROI frame is colored and exact ROI window resolution is displayed.

Upgrading to 4K greatly improves the image quality in your productions. So why compromise with switchers that may deliver more pixels but omit the true capabilities of 4K?


  • 4K without compromises: improves the image quality in your productions by upgrading to 4K.
  • High Dynamic Range [HDR]: preserves the details in the darkest and brightest areas of an image, as well as providing well-balanced stage lighting without oversaturation for IMAG (easier to achieve than with SDR.) SDR dynamic range signals can also be input and switched with the V-600UHD.
  • Full 60 Hz frame rate support: delivers a smooth, crisp video image without the blur that’s common when fast motion is displayed at 30 Hz refresh rates.
  • A more vivid color space: supports Rec.2020, the highest-specification Wide Color Gamut (WCG), as well as RGB and Rec.709 standards to display the widest range of visible colors. This provides an increased level of realism and improved color accuracy, especially for red and yellow color ranges.
  • 10-bit 4:4:4 pixel-accurate color: reduces color banding and sharpens high-detail sources from computers. This makes it easier to read small fonts and other fine details, even when drastically scaled and magnified.
  • Support for DCI (Cinema 4K) resolution: 4K content is always 2160 pixels high, but DCI or "Cinema 4K" is 4096 pixels wide, which is 256 pixels wider than UHD. The V-600UHD lets you switch and display content at the originally intended aspect ratio, without cropping or letterboxing.
  • Four HMDI 2.0 and two 12G SDI inputs: independently supports input and scaling of HD, Full HD, UHD 4K, and DCI 4K, as well as PC resolutions from UXGA to DCI 4K, with no converters needed. AUX destination switching makes it easy to include down-stage confidence monitors, while the configurable multi-view monitor lets you see all your sources, programs and previews at a glance.
  • Each output supports downscaling to Full HD: for outputting to streaming encoders or other HD-equipped destination displays.  
  • Use a single 4K camera thanks to built-in Regions of Interest (ROI): allows you to point a single 4K camera at the stage and use the V-600UHD’s input sharing and scaling functions to crop out up to eight "camera shots" (such as wide, medium, and close-ups) that you can assign to the V-600UHD’s cross points. 
  • Supports two Picture-in-Picture windows (PnP): go beyond simple fixed inset windows and get creative with composition. You can obtain results comparable to dedicated screen processors, with fully customizable aspect ratios, sizes, and input source scaling — letting you display whatever you want, wherever you want it. 
  • Superior audio management: Embedded audio from digital video signals can be tricky to incorporate into audio systems at an event or performance. With flexible 24-bit 48 kHz audio processing, the V-600UHD can:
    • De-embed audio from the currently selected source and send to an external sound mixer using Audio Follows Video.
    • Embed program audio returning from the same console into one or all video outputs, and then send to the web, a recorder, or overflow room.
  • The best solution for working with LED displays:
    • Lets you easily work with low light stages and bright backgrounds. Just use an HDR camera with the V-600UHD and the subject appears properly lit against a LED background (unlike with an SDR switcher).
    • Support for DCI Cinema 4K Resolution lets you switch content to display images up to 4096 pixels wide, fulfilling the creative vision of ambitious corporate event and festival designers.
    • The V-600UHD offers incredibly high-quality "dot-by-dot" output scaling that allows you to directly connect to a LED display controller at the exact pixel dimensions, without the extra expense and increased latency of a dedicated scaling processor.
