A multi-input video converter and encoding device, Roland's VC-30HD accepts HDMI, Component, composite, S-Video, Firewire, and analog or digital audio via RCA, XLR, and AES-EBU. The VC-30HD can be selected to convert to DV, HDV, or MPEG-2 formats. The VC-30HD combines audio and video sources together and encodes to two Firewire streams and a USB audio/video device—all simultaneously. This is ideal and convenient for archiving to multiple devices like Blu-ray or HDV units, while at the same time web streaming through a video streaming service on a computer.

NOTE: Video Capture Software for Windows is available. Contact your Sales Pro for more details.

Built-in Audio Delay Setting
The VC-30HD comes with appropriate onboard compensation so audio and video are in sync from the USB or firewire ports with the delay setting at 0. Audio may not always be in sync, however, based upon the total signal flow from all connected devices and/or the encoding/streaming software being used. The the VC-30HD's audio delay setting is there to compensate for whatever may be happening apart from the unit. It's recommended that the delay is set as required by watching the final encoded stream. A clapper or a percussive device can be used to clearly match the sound to the video image. The VC-30HD allows up to 30 frames of delay compensation (1 second) in increments of 0.1 frames (3.3msec) - enabling the perfect lip sync.

Roland VC-30HD Features:

  • Audio and video capture device for NLEs
  • Simultaneous USB and two Firewire outputs
  • Webstream and archive to Blu-ray at the same time with redundancy
  • Live event video streaming & recording applications
  • Converts uncompressed analog/digital video to MPEG-2 TS/HDV/DV
  • Enables audio embedding with both analog and digital audio
  • Set bit rate from 2 to 50Mbps as well as audio delay using included PC/Mac utility
  • Encoded video/audio can be simultaneously output via IEEE1394 and USB 2.0
  • HD Live Streaming: Converts and combines video and audio to MPEG-2 for live streaming. Simultaneously outputs to two IEEE 1392 and one USB ports. Demonstrates the ability for redundant streaming paths along with archiving or recording to video device for backup
  • Live Streaming + Backup Recording: Output via USB to a Windows-based streaming service while at the same time recording to video device for backup
  • DSLR Video Recording: Record from a digital still camera to PC or directly to another video device
  • Record directly to Blu-ray recorder from a Non-linear Editor via VC-30HD

Roland VC-30HD Specifications:

Input/Output Diagram (all components shown OTHER THAN the VC-30HD are sold separately):

Notes: Dedicated software for the VC-30HD enables control of various parameters such as bit rate of MPEG-2 TS(HD: 50/35/8 Mbps, SD: 12/9/2 Mbps) and audio delay.
*1: USB output does not support embedded audio signal from IEEE1394 or control of audio volume.
*2: USB output supports bit rate up to 25Mbps.
*3: Mac does not have drivers to support HDV/DV/MPEG2-TS via USB.
*4: Audio and Timecode can be embedded in the IEEE1394 video output.
*5: Windows USB support for HDV format has become very limited and dated so should be avoided.
