Main Features
● Eight channels of video input
The V-8 provides video input connectors for eight video (composite) channels and four S-video channels. Of the
input channels 1–8, S-video input is available only for channels 5–8.
* If S-video and video (composite) are both input to a channel 5–7, the input from the S-video connector will take priority and
will be selected automatically. Likewise, if S-video and RGB signals from a computer are both input to channel 8, the S-video
will take priority.
● Computer input jacks with built-in scan converters
A built-in scan converter supports RGB signals (VGA to UXGA) from a computer. The incoming RGB signal is
converted to a video signal. By key-compositing a computer screen with a video image, you can use this as a titler.
* There are two computer input connectors. A switch on the operating panel allows one of the two to be selected.
● Two independent frame synchronizers
Even if an unstable video signal is input, the internal frame synchronizer can correct the synchronization signal.
This allows you to use a variety of video without worrying about noise caused by unstable synchronization signals.
● Monitor out connectors for eight channels
An independent monitor out connector is provided for each video input channel 1–8.
* If both S-video and video (composite) signals are being input to channels 5–7, or if both an S-video signal and a computer
output signal are being input to channel 8, the input from the S-video connector will take priority, and will be sent from monitor
out. The input signal from the computer will also be sent from monitor out as a video signal.
● High-quality digital effects
Digitally processed effects are built in. You can apply a variety of high-quality effects including Picture In Picture,
Mirror, Multi, Feedback, and Afterimage. In addition to the familiar Mix and Wipe transitions, new transitions such
as FAM (Full Additive Mix), NAM (Non-Additive Mix), Slide, and Stretch are also provided.
● Simple and customizable operation
Switching between video sources and mixing them is easy. The T-bar type video fader can be attached in either
a horizontal or vertical orientation according to your preference. Sliders are used for effect controllers, allowing
you to operate the V-8 like a DJ mixer.
● Synchronize with music
By pressing the TAP button in time with the beat of the music, you can switch images or control effects in
synchronization with the tempo (BPM).
● Control via MIDI
MIDI connectors (IN, OUT/THRU) are provided, allowing you to switch images or control effects by controlling the
V-8 from an external MIDI device. You can also control an external device from the V-8.
In addition, the V-8 can be used in conjunction with V-LINK compatible audio/video equipment to easily create
video output that is linked with the expressive elements of a performance.

IMPORTANT NOTES
Power Supply
301
● Do not connect this unit to same electrical outlet that is being
used by an electrical appliance that is controlled by an inverter
(such as a refrigerator, washing machine, microwave oven, or air
conditioner), or that contains a motor. Depending on the way in
which the electrical appliance is used, power supply noise may
cause this unit to malfunction or may produce visible noise. If it is
not practical to use a separate electrical outlet, connect a power
supply noise filter between this unit and the electrical outlet.
302
● The AC adaptor will begin to generate heat after long hours of
consecutive use. This is normal, and is not a cause for concern.
307
● Before connecting this unit to other devices, turn off the power to
all units. This will help prevent malfunctions and/or damage to
video monitors or other devices.
Placement
Additional Precautions
***
● This unit allows you to switch images or turn video effects on/off
at high speed. For some people, viewing such images can cause
headache, nausea, or other discomfort. Do not use this unit to
create video that might cause these types of health problems.
Roland Corporation will accept no responsibility for any such
health problems that may occur in yourself or in viewers.
551
● Please be aware that the contents stored at the [MEMORY] knob
(p. 28) can be irretrievably lost as a result of a malfunction, or the
improper operation of the unit. To protect yourself against the risk
of loosing important data, we recommend that you periodically
save a backup copy of important data you have stored in the
unit’s memory in another MIDI device (e.g., a sequencer).
552
● Unfortunately, it may be impossible to restore the contents of data
that was stored in another MIDI device (e.g., a sequencer) once it
has been lost. Roland Corporation assumes no liability
concerning such loss of data.
553
352a
● This unit may interfere with radio and television reception. Do not
use this unit in the vicinity of such receivers.
352b
● Noise may be produced if wireless communications devices, such
as cell phones, are operated in the vicinity of this unit. Such noise
could occur when receiving or initiating a call, or while
conversing. Should you experience such problems, you should
relocate such wireless devices so they are at a greater distance
from this unit, or switch them off.
355b
● When moved from one location to another where the temperature
and/or humidity is very different, water droplets (condensation)
may form inside the unit. Damage or malfunction may result if you
attempt to use the unit in this condition. Therefore, before using
the unit, you must allow it to stand for several hours, until the
condensation has completely evaporated.
360
● Depending on the material and temperature of the surface on
which you place the unit, its rubber feet may discolor or mar the
surface.
You can place a piece of felt or cloth under the rubber feet to
prevent this from happening. If you do so, please make sure that
the unit will not slip or move accidentally.
Maintenance
401a
● For everyday cleaning wipe the unit with a soft, dry cloth or one
that has been slightly dampened with water. To remove stubborn
dirt, use a cloth impregnated with a mild, non-abrasive detergent.
Afterwards, be sure to wipe the unit thoroughly with a soft, dry
cloth.
● Use a reasonable amount of care when using the unit’s buttons,
sliders, or other controls; and when using its jacks and
connectors. Rough handling can lead to malfunctions.
556
● When connecting / disconnecting all cables, grasp the connector
itself—never pull on the cable. This way you will avoid causing
shorts, or damage to the cable’s internal elements.
559c
● When you need to transport the unit, package it in the box
(including padding) that it came in, if possible. Otherwise, you will
need to use equivalent packaging materials.

851
● Recording, duplication, distribution, sale, lease, performance, or
broadcast of copyrighted material (musical works, visual works,
broadcasts, live performances, etc.) belonging to a third party in
part or in whole without the permission of the copyright owner is
forbidden by law.
852a
● This product can be used to record or duplicate visual material
without being limited by certain technological copy-protection
measures. This is due to the fact that this product is intended to
be used for the purpose of producing original video material, and
is therefore designed so that material that does not infringe
copyrights belonging to others (for example, your own original
works) can be recorded or duplicated freely.
853
● Do not use this unit for purposes that could infringe on a copyright
held by a third party. We assume no responsibility whatsoever
with regard to any infringements of third-party copyrights arising
through your use of this unit.
402
● Never use benzine, thinners, alcohol or solvents of any kind, to
avoid the possibility of discoloration and/or deformation.
Repairs and Data
452
● Please be aware that all data contained in the unit’s memory may
be lost when the unit is sent for repairs. Important data should
always be backed up in another MIDI device (e.g., a sequencer),
or written down on paper (when possible). During repairs, due
care is taken to avoid the loss of data. However, in certain cases
(such as when circuitry related to memory itself is out of order),
we regret that it may not be possible to restore the data, and
Roland assumes no liability concerning such loss of data.

Video Signal Flow
Introduction
You can use the input selector to choose any two of the video signals coming into the eight input jacks. These two video
signals are sent to bus A and bus B of the video mixer section.
The video signals sent to bus A and bus B are mixed in the video mixer section. The mixed signal then passes through the
output fader and is sent from the output jack.
☞ For details on the structure of the mixer, refer to “Block Diagram” (p. 108).

● About the composite connectors and MONITOR OUT connectors
The V-8’s composite inputs and outputs use BNC connectors. If your connection cables have RCA phono plugs, you’ll
need to use the included (or commercially available) RCA-BNC adaptor plugs.
● About cable routing
Introduction
Using an S-video cable will provide a higher-quality image. However, if the cable routing is very long, noise may
appear in the image. If this occurs, use a composite cable.
● About the inputs
The S-video connector input will take priority for input channels 5–8.
● About the final output
Connections
The same image is sent from all of the OUTPUT connectors (composite connectors and S-video connector).
● About the ground terminal
Basic operation
Depending on the circumstances of a particular setup, you may experience a discomforting sensation, or perceive that
the surface feels gritty to the touch when you touch this device. This is due to an infinitesimal electrical charge, which
is absolutely harmless. However, if you are concerned about this, connect the ground terminal with an external ground.
When the unit is grounded, a slight hum may occur, depending on the particulars of your installation. If you are unsure
of the connection method, contact the nearest EDIROL/Roland Service Center, or an authorized EDIROL/Roland
distributor, as listed on the “Information” page.
Unsuitable places for connection
• Water pipes (may result in shock or electrocution)
Switching images
• Gas pipes (may result in fire or explosion)
• Telephone-line ground or lightning rod (may be dangerous in the event of lightning)

About the FAM and NAM Transition Effects
● Dissolve transition (001: Mix01)
Introduction
The transition effects built into the V-8 include FAM (Full Additive Mix) and NAM (Non-Additive Mix). Speaking simply, FAM
and NAM are special dissolve transitions that compare the brightness (luminance) of two images in order to determine the
degree of compositing.
● FAM transition (002: Fam01, 003: Fam✽)

About Effects
The number of effects that can be used simultaneously
You can simultaneously use up to four effects for bus A and four effects for bus B.
However, depending on the type of effect, there are some combinations that cannot be used simultaneously. There
are also some cases in which a transition (p. 35) and an effect cannot be used simultaneously. For details, refer to
“Effects that Cannot Be Used Simultaneously” (p. 107).
Effect types
The V-8 provides 150 different effects, including compositing effects, filter effects, and motion effects.
In this manual we explain the effects using the factory presets (p. 28) as examples, but you can use other effects by
assigning different effects to the EFFECTS buttons.
For details on how to assign different effects to the EFFECTS buttons, refer to “Assigning Different Effects to the
EFFECTS Buttons” (p. 53).
Effects that can be controlled by the [CONTROL] faders
If you choose an effect that has an “✽” (asterisk) following its name, you’ll be able to control it using the [CONTROL]
fader. In this case, the EFFECTS button will blink, indicating that you can use the [CONTROL] fader to modify the
effect.
For details on the effect parameter that is controlled, refer to “Effects that Can Be Controlled by the [CONTROL] Fader”
(p. 106).
Blink
* The effect settings are stored in the V-8 when you turn off the effect. When you once again turn the effect on, the
stored settings will be applied regardless of the position of the [CONTROL] fader.
* In addition to controlling the effect settings, the [CONTROL] fader is also used to control bus fading operations
(p. 31). While the [FADE] button is blinking, operating the [CONTROL] fader will fade in/out the bus image.
* The target of [CONTROL] fader operations (i.e., the EFFECTS button or the [FADE] button) can be switched by
using the [
][
] buttons. You can switch to bus A by pressing the [
] button, or to bus B by pressing the [

Skewed or Flickering Images (Tearing)
When moving images from a PC input are displayed, skewed or flickering images may occur. This is called “tearing,” and
is caused by discrepancies in the timing at which the images are rendered, so that a portion of the previous frame is shown
simultaneously with the next frame.
The illustration below is a conceptual example of tearing.

Switching Images in Synchronization with Music
(BPM Sync)
You can make images switch in synchronization with the beat of music. This causes the images to switch automatically
without your having to operate the video fader or the [TRANSFORMER] buttons.
You can specify the switching timing as a specified BPM (Beats Per Minute) or as the interval at which you press the [TAP]
button.
Switching Images at a Specified BPM
Here’s how to specify a BPM (Beats Per Minute) setting at which the image will change each beat.
1
Set the [MEMORY] knob to memory number 1.
* The factory preset settings are assigned to memory number 1. For details on
the [MEMORY] knob, refer to “Storing the Operating Panel Settings” (p. 28).
2
Use the bus A and bus B INPUT SELECT buttons to select the desired input images.
Input different images to bus A and bus B.
3
Turn the [BPM/CONTROL] knob to specify the BPM.
BPM display
The current BPM is shown in the BPM display.
Decreasing the BPM value will slow down the timing at which the images change. Increasing the BPM value will speed
up the timing at which the images will change. You can adjust the BPM in a range of 20–240.
* If you’ve selected “003: Fam✽” or “005: Nam✽” as the transition effect applied by a TRANSITION button, the FAM/
NAM cross point level (p. 37) will blink in the BPM display. Turning the [BPM/CONTROL] knob will adjust the cross
point level. If you want to change the BPM, use the [TAP] button (p. 61).
4
Press the [BPM SYNC] button.
The [BPM SYNC] button will light, and the images will switch automatically at the specified BPM. If you want to change
the timing at which the images switch, turn the [BPM/CONTROL] knob to adjust the BPM value.
The transition effect selected by the TRANSITION buttons will be applied when the images are switched.
• You can use BPM Sync to turn an effect on/off in synchronization with the beat of the music. In this case, input the same
image to bus A and bus B, and then apply the effect. The effect will switch on/off at the timing that the image switches
between bus A and bus B.
• When using BPM Sync, you can make the transition effect be a cut, or make the transition occur at a multiple of the
displayed BPM interval. For details, refer to “Changing the Settings of the [BPM SYNC] Button” (p. 62).
• If you use BPM Sync or the [TRANSFORMER] buttons (p. 40) to switch images automatically, there will be situations in
which the position of the video fader will not match the actual output. If you set the “Utility” menu item “Video Fader Mode”
to “Quick,” the output will change to match the fader position when you move the video fader slightly (p. 78).

Introduction
Using MIDI to Control the V-8 from an External Device
About MIDI
Connections
What is MIDI?
MIDI, an abbreviation for Musical Instrument Digital Interface, is an international standard created to enable exchange
of performance data among devices. Any MIDI-compatible device can be connected simply with a MIDI cable, allowing
transfer of performance data and control of device operations and settings.
Basic operation
MIDI Connectors
MIDI messages (data handled with MIDI). On the V-8, the MIDI OUT and MIDI THRU are combined in one connector.
The function is switched according to the operation being performed (p. 66).
MIDI messages from other MIDI devices are received here.
MIDI OUT:
MIDI messages from the V-8 are transmitted from here.
Switching images
MIDI IN:
MIDI THRU: MIDI messages received at the MIDI IN connector are output as is.
MIDI channels
Effects
MIDI allows you to transmit multiple streams of data to connected MIDI devices via a single MIDI cable. This is made
possible by the concept of MIDI channels. You can think of MIDI channels as being somewhat similar in function to
the channels on a television. By changing the channel of a TV set, you can view a variety of programs being
transmitted by different broadcast stations. This is because data is received only from the transmitter whose channel
is selected on the receiver.
Input/output
settings
In the same way, a MIDI device whose receive channel is set to “1” will receive only the data being transmitted by
another MIDI device whose transmit channel is also set to “1.”
MIDI Implementation Chart
BPM sync
The use of MIDI makes it possible to communicate with a broad range of electronic musical instruments. However,
this does not mean that all MIDI messages can be exchanged among all devices. Only those MIDI messages that both
of the communicating devices are designed to understand can be exchanged. The owner’s manual that comes with a
MIDI device includes a MIDI Implementation Chart (p. 98).
External devices
Such charts allow you to easily find out which MIDI messages that device can transmit and receive. When using MIDI
devices, compare the charts for the devices that will be communicating to check which MIDI messages are compatible.

Troubleshooting
Introduction
If you suspect a malfunction, please check the following points. If this does not resolve the problem, contact a nearby EDIROL/Roland
Service Center.
Problems with the image output
Cause and Action
The power does not turn on when
you press the [POWER] switch.
● Could you be using an AC adaptor other than the included one?
Connections
Problem
➔ Use the included AC adaptor.
Problem
Cause and Action
No image is output
● Could the [OUTPUT FADE] fader be lowered?
Basic operation
Problems with the image output
● Have you used the INPUT SELECT buttons to select an appropriate input channel?
➔ Select a channel into which an image is being input.
● Could the [FADE] button be blinking?
➔ If the [FADE] button is blinking, you can use the [CONTROL] fader to fade the image of bus A or
bus B. Raise the [CONTROL] fader. ☞ p. 31
Switching images
➔ With the factory settings, lowering the [OUTPUT FADE] fader will fade the image. Raise the
[OUTPUT FADE] fader. ☞ p. 32
● Is an image being output from the connected video device or PC?
Effects
● Have you selected the correct input on the projector or television monitor to which the V-8’s
signal is being output?
● Is the correct video format (NTSC or PAL) specified?
➔ Specify NTSC or PAL as appropriate for the format of the input signal. ☞ p. 59
● Could the same image be selected for bus A and bus B?
Image is distorted
● It may be that the level of the synchronization signal being output by your video equipment
is below the allowable level.
➔ If the same image is selected for bus A and bus B, operating the video fader will not change the
output image. Select different images for bus A and bus B.
● Is the correct video format (NTSC or PAL) specified?
➔ Specify NTSC or PAL as appropriate for the format of the input signal. ☞ p. 59
BPM sync
➔ Try adjusting the “Utility” menu item “Video Sync Threshold.” This may allow synchronization to
be achieved so that the image will display correctly.
Input/output
settings
Operating the video fader does not
change the image
● Could you have used the [PC INPUT SELECT] switch to change PC inputs?
● Could you be displaying moving images from a PC input?
➔ Displaying moving images from a PC input may cause skewed or flickering images. This is a
phenomenon called “tearing,” and is not a malfunction. ☞ p. 55
External devices
➔ When you switch PC inputs, it will take some time for the input to stabilize. We recommend that
you use the monitor to verify the image.
● Could you be using the INPUT SELECT buttons to switch the image?
Before using the INPUT SELECT buttons to switch between images, perform the following operations or settings. This will allow smooth transitions between images without switching noise.
Video fader
➔ If the video fader is not set all the way to the bus A or bus B position, using the INPUT SELECT
buttons to switch channels will cause the image to be distorted, but this is not a malfunction.
• Set the video fader all the way to the bus A or bus B position (the bus that is outputting the
image).
Appendices
• Raise the value of the “Utility” menu item “Input Select Delay Time.”

● Could you have installed the V-4CF crossfader (sold separately)?
➔ Calibrate the video fader. ☞ p. 77
Effects
Problem
Cause and Action
Operating the [CONTROL] fader
does not change the effect
● Have you selected an effect that has an “✽” (asterisk) following the effect name?
➔ The [CONTROL] fader can control effect settings only for an effect that has an “✽” following the
effect name. The EFFECTS button of the effect that can be controlled will blink. ☞ p. 42
Other
Problem
Cause and Action
Menu settings are not saved
● Could you have switched off power before closing a menu?
➔ The settings in a menu are saved in the V-8’s internal memory when you close the menu. To
save the settings, edit the values as desired and then close the menu before you switch off the
power. ☞ p. 25
Can’t change the settings in a
menu
● Could the [MEMORY] knob be selecting memory number 1?
➔ Select a memory number from 2 through 8.
Memory number 1 contains the factory preset settings. These are read-only, and cannot be
edited. ☞ p. 28
● Could memory protect be turned “On”?
➔ Turn the “Utility” menu item “Memory Protect” setting “Off.” ☞ p. 25
Can’t change the BPM
BPM display is blinking
● Could you have used the TRANSITION buttons to select the transition effect “003: Fam✽” or
“005: Nam✽”?
➔ Choose a transition effect other than “003: Fam✽” or “005: Nam✽.”
If you’ve selected “003: Fam✽” or “005: Nam ✽,” the [BPM/CONTROL] knob will change the
FAM/NAM cross point. ☞ p. 37

■ 3-1. V-8 (Model ID = 00H 00H 28H)
Introduction
* Addresses marked by # are sent as two bytes; an upper nibble (upper 4 bits) and lower nibble (lower 4 bits).
Example) If the original data is BCH, 0BH is transmitted as the first byte.
The next byte transmitted is 0CH. For reception, this is ignored if two bytes are not received together.
* Do not transmit data to the address whose Parameter Name is “Reserve”.
* The factory-default Device ID is 10H.

* Decimal expressions used for MIDI channel, bank select, and program
change are 1 greater than the decimal value shown in the above table.
* Hexadecimal values in 7-bit units can express a maximum of 128 levels in
one byte of data. If the data requires greater resolution, two or more bytes
are used. For example, a value indicated by a hexadecimal expression in
two 7-bit bytes “aa bb” would be “aa x 128 + bb.”
<Example 1>
What is the decimal equivalent of 5AH?
From the above table, 5AH = 90.
<Example 2>
What is the decimal expression of the hexadecimal
expression in two 7-bit bytes “12H 34H”?
From the above table, 12H = 18, and 34H = 52. Thus,
18 x 128 + 52 = 2356
■ Examples of MIDI messages
<Example 1> CEH 49H
CnH is the Program Change status, and n is the MIDI channel number.
EH = 14, and 49H = 73. Thus, this is a Program Change message of MIDI CH=
15, program number 74 (in the GS sound map, Flute).
<Example 2> EAH 00H 28H
EnH is the Pitch Bend Change status, and n is the MIDI channel number.
The second byte (00H=0) is the lower byte of the pitch bend value, and the
third byte (28H=40) is the upper byte. Since the pitch bend value is a signed
value with 40H 00H (= 64 x 128 + 0 = 8192) corresponding to 0, the pitch bend
value in this case is:
28H 00H - 40H 00H = 40 x 128 + 0 - (64 x 128 + 0) = 5120 - 8182 - -3072
If the Pitch Bend Sensitivity is set to two semitones, a pitch change of -8192
(00H 00H) would change the pitch by -200 cents, so in this case, a pitch bend
of -200 x (-3072) / (-8192) = -75 cents is being designated on MIDI channel 11.
■ Exclusive message examples and checksum
calculation
Roland exclusive messages (RQ1, DT1) contain a checksum following the
data (after F7), which can be used to check whether the message was
received correctly. The checksum value is derived from the address and data
(or size) of the transmitted exclusive message.
●Calculating the checksum
(‘H’ is appended to hexadecimal numbers)
The checksum is a value that produces a lower 7 bits of zero when the
address, size, and checksum itself are summed. If the exclusive message to
be transmitted has an address of aaH bbH ccH and the data is ddH eeH, the
actual calculation would be as follows:
aa + bb + cc + dd + ee = sum
sum / 128 = quotient • • • Eremainder
128 - remainder = checksum
<Example>
Assigning Modulation as the control change that controls the transition effect
time for the “Video Fader” of Tx/Rx Setting.
From the “Parameter address map,” the “Video Fader” of Tx/Rx Setting has a
start address of 01H 10H 0CH, and the Modulation control change has a
parameter value 00H 01H. Thus,
F0H 41H 10H
(1)
(2)
00H 00H 28H 12H 01H 10H 0CH 00H 01H
(3)
(1) Exclusive status
(4) Model ID (V-8)
(7) Data
(4)
(5)
(6)
(2) ID number (Roland)
(5) Command ID (DT1)
(8) Checksum
(7)
??H F7H
(8)
(9)
(3) Device ID (17)
(6) Address
(9) EOX
Next, we calculate the checksum.
01H + 10H + 0CH + 00H + 01H = 1 + 16 + 12 + 0 + 1 = 30 (sum)
30 (sum) / 128 = 0 (quotient) • • •30 (remainder)
Checksum = 128 - 30 (remainder) = 98 = 62H
Thus, the message to be transmitted is F0H 41H 10H 00H 00H 10H 12H 01H
10H 0CH 00H 01H 62H F7H.
