Roland announces a free firmware and software upgrade for the popular V-1SDI 3G SDI Video Switcher. The V-1SDI Version 1.5 firmware update supports capturing a still image from the V-1SDI RCS software for Windows or Mac, plus support for 1/3 size PinP window in addition to the 1/2 and 1/4 sizes currently available.
The combination of the new RCS Software and Firmware updates for the Roland V-1SDI adds powerful titling creation, image capture, and keying capabilities for live production. The new RCS Software 1.5 for Win/Mac features new titling creation function with graphic import, sizing, and text generation that can be created on a keyed background color and then exported to a Roland V-1SDI running version 1.5 firmware. The image, graphic or combination is then captured in the newly added STILL function in the V-1SDI.
Christian Delfino, Roland Vice President – Product Management, Pro A/V / Dance & DJ / Synthesizers, comments, “Still-store capability has been a popular feature request from users, and we are excited that we are able to provide not only this capability but also a powerful and easy-to-use image and title editor.”
