Roland enters technical collaboration with Canon to support new automated production tools for professional video

Roland has entered a technical collaboration with Canon in support of the forthcoming Ver.2.0 update for Roland’s  V-600UHD 4K Multi-format Video Switcher.

The free V-600UHD Ver.2.00 update adds “Automatic ROI,” the new technology-assisted camera workflow that blends robust facial recognition technology with Roland’s ROI “Region Of Interest” tool. LAN-based PTZ camera control is also included as part of the Ver.2.0 update.

“Automatic ROI” marks the beginning of a new technical collaboration between Roland and  Canon, lending technology-assisted workflow enhancements to several of Canon’s leading digital cameras and camcorders including the Canon XF405 / XF400 Professional Camcorders. The V-600’s Region Of Interest windows automatically finds and follows two people within the scene aiding in single operator productions.Ver.2.0 update allows the V-600UHD’s Automatic ROI to work with the camcorder face-tracking autofocus of these Canon camcorders when using specific firmware, settings, and HDMI and CAT LAN cable.

The Roland V-600UHD adds value to many different production scenarios by letting users transition to 4K workflows as demand and budgets allow, one input at a time. Scaling is also provided on every input with Roland’s Ultra Scaler technology, making it possible to use Full HD and 4K sources simultaneously while outputting at multiple resolutions. The high pixel density of 4K camera sources can be leveraged in Full HD workflows as well, for problem-free, visually-impressive productions.

The Roland V-600UHD Ver.2.0 Update will be offered as a free download in summer 2020.
