The Roland LVS-400 can be connected with any type of video feed such as video cameras, video decks and PC's. You can switch images from live cameras rhythmically, make a presentation with images from a PC and use the LVS-400 in many different situations. For use in a darkened venue, the LVS-400 features simple and intuitive interfaces such as large back-lit buttons and an easy-to-use video fader. The Monitor Output function can preview 4 different images individually and immediately in the preview monitor letting you safely check your inputs without affecting the output images.
The LVS-400 is equipped with 3 different types of composition effects; the 4 types of Picture in Picture (inserts a small image into the main image), Chroma Key and Luminance Key (white/black). These let you insert graphics and titling from a PC into the main image in real time. There are also 3 types of transition effects Mix, Wipe 1, which switches from left to right and Wipe 2 that expands from the center.
The LVS-400 lets you manipulate DV quality images with fully digital processing. The two independent frame synchronizers give you stable switching with no noise or jitter - no matter how unstable your analog video sources are. For professional use, the LVS-400 is equipped with BNC composite video inputs and outputs to prevent cables being accidently pulled out. In addition, the V-LINK connection, via MIDI, lets you synch the video with live performance of music.
