Roland Systems Group in Bellingham, Wash., is now shipping the Roland VR-3 AV Mixer through its network of authorized resellers and integrators. The Roland VR-3 is a fully integrated audio mixer and video switcher for live production and Web streaming.
The VR-3 combines Roland’s audio and video technology into one unit and expands the company's growing lineup of AV Mixers and streaming-ready solutions.
The VR-3 also incorporates a touchscreen interface for switching video sources or using the menu, as well as preview monitors and streaming-ready USB output. As a USB Video/Audio class device, Web streaming is accomplished by connecting the VR-3 to a computer running a live streaming service such as USTREAM, Livestream, Stickam, Justin.tv, worshipstream.com, websharelive.com, and other streaming services.
The unit weighs less than five pounds and can be powered by the provided power supply or by external battery options, such as Sanyo’s Pedal Juice.
