High-Quality Presentations Made Easy
The powerful video capabilities in the VR-6HD make it simple to bring professional production values to business streaming productions. Connect multiple cameras and computers via HDMI for different views, and incorporate robotic PTZ cameras to change angles at the touch of a button. Quickly assign and switch among sources on the fly, including live HDMI inputs, presentation decks, still images, and video clips. You can also create custom feeds for live and online viewers by assigning composition layers to multiple busses.

Multiple HDMI Inputs
The VR-6HD supports HDMI - the most common video connector in the world - and you can seamlessly combine six HDMI sources in Full HD with a range of broadcast and cinematic frame rates and colour spaces. Built-in scalers with EDID and HDCP support provide easy integration with sources like computers, tablets, smartphones, gaming consoles, and legacy 4:3 devices.

Integrated Playback of Stills and Video Clips
Enhance events with onboard support for graphics and video playback. Call up still images during transitions between presenters, display graphics, and use PNGs to create dynamic lower thirds. The integrated video player lets you trigger video clips directly from the SDXC card, with no need to connect an external playback device.

Layers and Keyers
Video effects and graphics are must-haves to bring polish and excitement to productions. The VR-6HD's effects engine features five composition layers that can be assigned to the Program, Sub-Program, and Aux outs, so you'll always keep audiences engaged. With up to two picture-in-picture windows and one downstream key layer with transparent PNG and external key support, you can manage any creative need.

Assignable Video Outputs
The VR-6HD puts a high-end video matrix at your fingers with three HDMI outputs, a USB-C streaming output, and an ethernet streaming output. Feed program displays, auxiliary monitors, multi-view producer displays, and the online audiences at once, complete with a clean output left over for recording the presentation to an SDXC card.

Professional Digital Audio Mixing
The VR-6HD delivers world-class audio quality with 28 simultaneous channels and Roland's acclaimed sound mixing features. Comprehensive EQ and dynamics processing is provided on every channel, complete with convenient preset libraries for achieving pro results instantly. Powerful problem-solving tools are also on hand, including audio sync alignment, de-essing, noise suppression, and more. It's even possible to play back stored audio during streams with quick touches on the panel.

Multi-Channel Audio Inputs and Bluetooth
The VR-6HD offers professional analog audio connectivity with six balanced XLR/TRS combination jacks, high-quality mic preamps, and phantom power. Stereo RCA inputs are available for audio players, electronic instruments, and other line-level devices, and you can mix the embedded digital audio from sources connected to the HDMI and USB inputs. And with onboard Bluetooth, it's easy to stream wireless audio from any mobile device.

Powerful Mixing Tools
Set up direct control for your most important sound feeds with seven assignable faders. And when you have multiple presenters to deal with, engage Auto Mixing to lighten your load and ensure that the mix between microphones remains balanced. You can set specific inputs to take priority when someone starts to speak, and other audio levels are automatically reduced as needed.

Shape Your Sound
The VR-6HD combines the full power of the latest digital audio consoles with expansive Roland effects. Four-band EQs and dynamics processing are provided for every input and output, and high-quality reverb is available for music applications and special effects. You also get specialized tools to quickly handle audio issues, like automatic anti-feedback for stage mics and adaptive noise reduction to suppress background noise and hum.

Audio On Demand
With the VR-6HD's unique Audio Player section and six assignable pads, it's simple to enhance events with custom sounds. With a quick press, you can trigger sound effects, event announcements, countdowns for e-sports, or theme songs for presentersthe sky's the limit.

Ethernet/USB Streaming and Onboard Recording
The VR-6HD's advanced technology makes livestreaming to the most popular platforms smooth and worry-free. With direct streaming over ethernet, computer streaming over USB, and Adaptive Bitrate support, you can deliver high-quality presentations to any audience. And with simultaneous SDXC recording, it's easy to capture presentations for archiving and distribution.

USB-C Streaming Up to 60 FPS
Stream to any audience in Full HD to a computer via USB. The USB-C connection offers the same plug-and-play technology as webcams*, so you can begin streaming immediately with Zoom, Microsoft Teams, or any platform that can use a webcam as its source.
*USB video class (UVC) and USB audio class (UAC) compliant.

Take Full Control of Your Productions
Thanks to its well-organized panel and intuitive workflow, even novice operators will feel comfortable using the VR-6HD. Hardware knobs, faders, and buttons offer direct control for essential functions, while the 4.3-inch touch display provides smooth access to deeper parameters and settings. Scene memory, macro, and sequencing features simplify operation even more, letting you pre-program complicated actions and fire them off with simple actions.

PTZ Camera Support
Robotic PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom) cameras eliminate the need for multiple operators, provide enhanced broadcast-quality coverage, and can be placed in discreet locations thanks to their small size. The VR-6HD features integrated support for select Canon, JVC, Panasonic, Sony, PTZOptics, Avonic, and VISCA-compatible PTZ LAN cameras. Mix and match different brands as you like and operate up to six PTZ cameras simultaneously.

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
