Roland is offering demonstrations that showcase the benefits of several new firmware updates for its growing line of professional video products during IBC 2019.

  • V-60HD Ver.2.5 at JVC Kenwood (Hall 12 — stand F31)

The V-60HD is quickly becoming the video switcher of choice for partner companies including Cuebi, SKAARHOJ, and JVC. Version 2.5 firmware enables primary parameter control of Panasonic PTZ cameras over LAN from the V-60HD, eliminating the need for a dedicated camera controller.
