See This at Roland Systems Group #IC200

Here’s one of my show picks. I like the Roland Systems Group VR-5 AV switcher (Mac version debuts here plus Mac remote software). But let’s say you already have an audio or video switcher. Now the upcoming VC-30 img_0239.JPGwill let you combine any audio and video source–actually it doesn’t have to be switchers but see the picture for how a professional-looking live streaming production set up would look. What you don’t see is the simultaneous USB and Firewire out, so you can stream and record (say to Blu-ray) simultaneously–great if you want to stream the sermon and capture to disc at the same time. Also key: built-in offset for audio delay so a single, clean file goes to your content delivery network (CDN) for bulletproof sync. Shipping in July, according to Roland’s Rob Read.
