Maximum Connectivity
Nearly all modern cameras and digital video devices use HDMI, the most common AV connector on the planet. The V-8HD seamlessly mixes eight HDMI sources with Full HD support, even when the sources have mismatched frame rates and color spaces. And with the built-in scalers on two of the HDMI inputs, you can easily interface with client-provided sources like computers, tablets, smartphones, gaming consoles, and legacy 4:3 devices.

The Power of More
Creative professionals need more video inputs for layered graphics and visual effects, and business professionals often need multiple backup video sources. Having the ability to meet all these needs brings satisfied clients and greater audience engagement. With the V-8HD’s generous number of HDMI inputs and outputs, you’re able to offer clients a vast amount of creative freedom—without increasing the budget.

Ultra-Mobile, Lightweight, and Efficient
The AV production table is the last thing on an event organizer’s mind. Thanks to its compact footprint, the V-8HD fits effortlessly into any live production environment, even when you have to deal with minimal setup space. And it only weighs around 4 lb./2 kg, making it easy to carry in a backpack or luggage. With its solid T-bar fader and robust hands-on controls, eight HDMI inputs, 18-channel audio mixer, and support for external battery power, the streamlined V-8HD is the most versatile and efficient HDMI switcher available.

Built-In Multi-Viewer Display
The V-8HD’s bright, 4.3-inch multi-viewer display means less gear to buy and haul to the gig. You can monitor all eight video inputs, PGM, and PVW plus menu overlay from a single screen, and input windows allow you to keep track of camcorder recording status and embedded audio levels. If you prefer, it’s possible to connect a large external display for an immense multi-viewer experience that lets you make menu changes without moving your focus from the action.

Audio and Effects
A crystal-clear sound mix is essential for professional presentations. That’s easy to achieve with the V-8HD, which allows pros and beginners alike to create engaging mixes that sound great. The studio-grade, 18-channel audio mixer blends signals from the eight HDMI inputs and stereo RCA inputs, while a feature-packed preset effects library provides setups for everyday production environments like meetings and interviews, plus challenging situations that require wind noise reduction and microphone de-essing. Delay is also available on every input channel, so your audio and video sources will always be in perfect sync.

Automated Video Switching
The V-8HD makes your job easier with three technology assisted automatic switching modes. Input Scan switches input sources randomly or in sequence, while Preset Memory Scan switches between preset memories. BPM (beats per minute) sync is also available, automatically switching Preview and Program at a specified tempo for tight synchronization with musical cues.

Record Triggering and Confirmation
Many technical elements contribute to a successful recording. But forgetting to hit the record button means the difference between getting paid for the job or not. Via HDMI, the V-8HD operator can trigger Atomos recorders to start and stop recording. And some camcorders even display a recording confirmation icon on the input channel of the V-8HD's multi-viewer screen, letting you keep an eye on the recording status while staying focused on other critical tasks.

V-8HD iPad Remote Control Utility
The dedicated V-8HD remote control app turns an iPad into an efficient touch interface for the V-8HD. Run essential switching functions, mix audio with virtual faders, change settings and effect parameters quickly, and create up to 24 custom scenes for fast, efficient setup changes.

Hands-Free Switching and Control
Stomp on a BOSS single or double footswitch to execute over 100 different switcher commands. Cut to a still image, transition PIP on/off the screen, or drop in a keyed lower third title. It’s also possible to switch the aux output between presenter notes and stage manager messages, turn automatic switching mode on/off, and much more.
