The Roland XS-1HD Multi-Format Matrix Switcher is a versatile, table-top 4-In/4-Out HDMI matrix switcher capable of resolution of up to WUXGA/1080p. The unit offers frame synchronization and scaling on all inputs, while three operational modes provide a variety of applications. Matrix mode allow for switching of four sources to any of four outputs, while Switcher mode allows Picture-in-Picture, key-composting, and dissolve transitions. Split mode allows Picture-in-Picture of up to three inset windows with individual position, size, and layering. The built-in audio mixer allows the HDMI audio and analog stereo input to be mixed. There’s also an “audio follow” function that switches the audio in synchronization with video transitions. The switcher offers sixteen memories allowing for easy recall when needed. The XS-1HD ships with a power adapter and power cord.

System Overview
Panel Layout: Even with its compact footprint, the XS-1HD lets you operate its powerful functions using only the operation panel. Since HDMI input/output and the controls are integrated into a single unit, it can be used in a variety of situations such as on a small desk or podium, or on a media cart
Cross-Point Buttons: These buttons select the input channel for each output. The vertical columns correspond to the input, and the horizontal rows correspond to the output. Buttons are lite-up white when a video signal is present
Quick Edit: This function lets you adjust the video or audio from the operation panel without need to access the menu. You can control settings such as the position and scaling of the image, the location of the Picture-in-Picture inset windows, and the audio volume
HDMI Input/Output: HDMI connectors allow video and audio (stereo) to be input and output. A scaler and EDID emulator are built-in for each input, and HDCP is also supported, allowing for even rights-protected content to be switched
USB Memory Port: Settings can be backed up on a USB flash drive. Still images can also be loaded, and instantly displayed when needed
Audio Input/Output: Line-level stereo input and output are available and can be mixed with audio that is input via HDMI. Audio embedding and de-embedding are supported, along with audio delay to adjust for lip-sync
Remote Control: Serial control is enabled. It is possible to cooperate with other switchers and mixers and control from the outside
Screen Modes
Matrix Mode: Four input video signals can be individually switched to one of four outputs. Since a scaler is provided for each of the four inputs, you can connect a mix of video devices such as cameras, PCs, media players, Blu-ray discs, or smartphones. You can switch between videos by fading-in/out and can adjust desired transition time using the TIME knob
Switcher Mode: This mode lets you use a cross-dissolve to seamlessly transition between sources, or use Picture-in-Picture or key-compositing. A multi-view input preview can be output from HDMI OUT 4 for confirming input sources while operating the unit. If you’re not using Picture-in-Picture or key-compositing, you can use an AUX bus to output a separate video signal to a confidence monitor or other destination
Split Mode: This mode composites multiple videos into a single screen for output. Up to three small screens can be composited into a background video. The position, size and layering order of the inset screens can be individually set. This is useful when it is required show multiple videos simultaneously, such as when recording e-learning content or presentations
High-Quality 4:4:4 10-Bit Processing: The XS-1HD uses RGB/YPbPr 4:4:4 10-bit signal processing, ensuring that the quality of the video input sources is maintained to the output display especially with data sources. Video that is switched to a large LED display or projector is output with crisp clarity
Digital Audio Mixer: This allows the HDMI audio and analog stereo input to be mixed. There’s also an “audio follow” function that switches the audio in synchronization with video transitions
Internal Scalers: Each video input is equipped with a scaler that can be set individually. The incoming video input resolution will automatically be matched to the output resolution. The output video can be zoomed to a maximum of 1000.0% and down to 10.0% in detailed 0.1% steps, allowing the video to be properly scaled for the display
Test Pattern Generator: You can output a test pattern that is convenient for adjusting the video output to a projector or large LED display. A selection of various patterns is provided, including color bars, cross-hatch, and ramp. Also included is an animation function that diagonally scrolls the displayed pattern
EDID Emulator: You can prevent connection problems between video devices by specifying the desired format of EDID. This is convenient in situations such as a banquet or hall, where the computer connected to the XS-1HD is changed throughout the event
Memories: The current setting of the switcher can be saved into one of sixteen memories. Settings can be saved for specific scenes or configurations, and be easily recalled when needed
