Connect to a PC via USB
The world's first USB Video/Audio Class supported AV mixer. Simply connect like a Web camera to enable easy live streaming.


Intuitive Operation with Dual Touch Monitors
The Program and Preview monitors are operated by touching the screen such as when selecting video sources and PinP position changes. The sound from the sources can be monitored using headphones.


Simple Video Compositing
In addition to Transition effects, Picture in Picture (PinP) and SPLIT are also available. Simply select an effect and the respective video sources.


Control Transparency with a Single Knob
Advanced video composition such as placing a person or text over a background video source can be fine-tuned using a single knob.


Audio and Video from a PC
Connect a PC to the RGB connector for various applications such as presentation, slide shows and movie playback.


Full Digital Audio Mixing
Two mono and five stereo audio inputs (total of 12Ch) are mixed with full digital audio processing. This results in a high quality sound with effects such as "Noise Gate" for reducing background noise, and a "Mastering Tool" to ensure consistent output volume. The "Audio Follow" function enables the audio to fade from one source to another as the video source changes.


Record to SD Memory Card
The built-in recorder can record the final output of the VR-5 to SD memory card. Up to four hours of recording is possible when using a 4GB card. The MPEG-4 capture format enables easy sharing of recorded video. The VR-5 can also playback video, still image, and audio files from SD card.


Output Controls
VIDEO OUT and AUDIO OUT knobs enable independent video and audio fade-in/out levels. Press the "USER LOGO" button to display a stored image such as company logo, show name or conference title.
