Roland VC-1-SC Up/Down/Cross Scan Converter
Up/Down/Cross Scan Converter to/from SDI/HDMI
The VC-1-SC Video Converter is ideal for live production where you need analog or digital sources to match a certain SDI and/or HDMI video format, aspect ratio, frame rate, or input type. The versatility of this converter to support a variety of configurations for live production and installed application.
Roland's new video converters address the demand for high-quality, lossless video and audio converters for live/post production as well as installed systems. They include the Roland VC-1-HS (HDMI to SDI), VC-1-SH (SDI to HDMI), VC-1-DL (Bi-directional SDI/HDMI with audio/video delay and frame sync) and VC-1-SC (Up/Down/Cross Scan converter to/from SDI/HDMI).
The VC-1 Video Converter series provides uncompromising picture quality by maintaining the video characteristics of the original signal with rich-blacks and super-whites. There are no interlacing artifacts or other conversion or signal errors sometimes found with other video converters. The VC-1 series also features an on-board re-clocker to compensate for attenuation of SDI signals carried over long distances. The VC-1 series also supports both level A and B 3G-SDI, letting you connect a variety of higher quality SDI sources.
The VC-1 series is HDCP compliant allowing you to convert or pass-through HDCP signals with the exception of any SDI output. The VC-1-DL additionally enables the HDCP signal to be delayed. Selectable audio embedding and de-embedding lets you route different audio sources to or from video devices. Digital AES/EBU input and output signals are supporting ensuring high-quality audio signals can be maintained through the signal flow.

Awarding-winning multi-format conversion technology concentrated in a simplified mini-converter.
Roland's new video converters address the demand for high-quality, lossless video and audio converters for live/post production as well as installed systems.
Uncompromising commitment to picture quality.
The VC-1 series faithfully converts the original source with no change in color or brightness. It supports super-blacks and super-whites, and converts video from cameras and other source devices with all the originality intact.
The VC-1 series features an on-board reclocker to compensate for
attenuation of SDI signals carried over long distances. This makes it possible to receive camera-relay video while maintaining a high image quality.
Faithful reproduction of video characteristics.
The VC-1 series reproduces the video characteristics of the original source with no interlace artifacts, pixel shifting, or other conversion problems or signal errors. Jitter and return loss are at exceptional levels as well.
Support for 1080p 3G-SDI.
Video signals beyond 1080i can be input and output. The VC-1 series supports both level A and level B 3G-SDI, letting you connect a wide variety of 3G-SDI equipment. 1080i, 720p, and SD signals are accommodated automatically on connection.
High quality and rugged construction for the rigors of front-line use.
High quality, smart design.
The exterior plating is aluminum at 2 millimeters thick. The connectors laid out inside the exterior plates are fastened to the chassis with nuts and bolts. This makes for a heavy-duty specification that can keep the connectors from coming loose even with frequent cable changes, as well as withstanding impact and drops. Every connector has an LED input indicator enabling you to confirm the status of signal transmission at a glance. The series is built for uncompromising reliability that includes accurate operation even over long periods of continuous use thanks to a design featuring exceptional heat-radiating efficiency.
A form factor that accommodates use on-the-go.
Cutaway areas in the exterior plate enable you to fasten the unit to tripods or the like using velcro or elastic ties. This makes for convenient placement and setup even during live on-site use.
Support for HDCP HDMI signals.
The VC-1 series is compliant with HDCP. For example, the VC-1-DL can take HDCP-applied HDMI input signals, apply frame synchronization or delay, and produce HDCP-applied HDMI output. This allows the VC-1 series to be used in any HDCP-based system with no worries.
Support for workflow combining audio and video.
Audio embedding and de-embedding features are provided (channel-selectable) in the VC-1 Series. The audio embedding feature lets you place audio signals from a different source into the video output. For example, when converting an SDI signal to HDMI, you can use the audio embedding feature to output high-quality audio from any of the SDI audio channels. Digital (AES/EBU) input and output are also supported, letting you exchange sound between professional audio equipment with no degradation in signal. Analog input and output is supported as well making it pos
