imgLos Angeles, CA (June 12, 2014)—Roland Systems Group has announced a new line of Multi-Format Matrix Switchers, the Roland XS Series, designed specifically for fixed installations.

The series supports eight HDMI, RGB/Component/S-video/Composite inputs and up to four HDMI or HDBaseT outputs with scalers to support picture-in-picture, resizing, rotating, and flipping. Audio can be embedded into outputs via eight stereo audio inputs (two microphone) and/or HDMI audio as well as de-embedded on output. Additional features include iPad control, EDID emulation and HDCP management.

The XS Series is available in three configurations: 8-in x 4-out (XS-84H), 8-in x 3-out (XS-83H), and 8-in x 2-out (XS-82H) and is intended for applications that include conference rooms, education, 4K switching to 1080p, performing art centers, churches, convention centers and teleconferencing.

Users can also remotely control the Roland XS Series using the native iPad app, XS Remote, through the RS-232C interface and control over LAN connections.

The XS-84 model is said to be capable of switching four video sources as a group enabling the use of up to two 4K inputs. The multi-format capabilities allows users to switch 4K, HD, SD, XGA and other computer formats up to 1920x1200 (WUXGA).

The Roland XS Multi-Format Matrix Switcher Series will debut in Las Vegas June 18-20 at InfoComm 2014 on Roland Systems Group booth #10536.
