CTW NAB Coverage: Roland VC-30HD

Ever wanted to convert video from one format to another, stream it and capture it for archive, all for less than $2,000? Well, your prayers have been answered with the VC-30HD.

Sporting composite, S-video, component and HDMI inputs along with RCA, XLR and AES audio inputs (with the ability to time align audio & video through the software), the VC-30HD can output to both USB and FireWire simulteneously.

CTW NAB Coverage: DiGiCo SD11

If the SD10 is the big brother to the SD8 (and little brother to the SD7), then the SD11 is the little brother to the SD8. Got that? Yeah, they kinda hosed themselves with the whole numbering scheme, but what’s in a name, right?

The SD11 is a terrific addition to the SD line, using the exact same processing, software and interface as it’s larger brothers. Boasting 32 channels with 16 mic pres on the surface, 12 busses (each of which can be mono or stereo), and an 8×8 matrix, it packs a lot of power into a small footprint. Pricing with a D-Rack should be under $20k.

CTW NAB Coverage: Roland R-1000

Roland also announced the new R-1000 48 channel hard disk recorder. It interfaces perfectly with any of their V-Mixers, and with anything else with MADI using the S-MADI Bridge. They figured out a pretty great way to do virtual soundcheck with it as well. It’s a bit on the pricey side at around $5K (list), but given the high level of integration and ease of use, it may well be worth it as part of a V-Mixing system.
