ISE 2014: Roland brings the VR-3EX mixer4 February 2014
The VR-3EX will be introduced by Roland Systems Group at ISE 2014 – the latest addition to the company’s VR Series of ‘all in one’ AV mixers – incorporating a video switcher, audio mixer, touchscreen preview monitor and streaming-ready USB output all in a single unit.
The VR-3EX features audio embedding from its four HDMI inputs while the built-in audio mixer has delay settings on each input allowing ‘lip sync’ adjustments to be made to match the video source.
The 18-channel audio mixer is made up of four XLR/TRS with phantom power, stereo RCA, mini-stereo and built-in stereo mics as well as stereo audio from the HDMI inputs. EQ, gate, and compression can be applied to each balanced audio channel enhancing the audio and live production quality.
The built-in stereo microphone enables the operator to narrate or add ambient audio from the audience into the broadcast mix. The VR-3EX also has a main and AUX buss output so that the audio for the broadcast and the in-house PA system can be mixed separately.
