While maintaining the high gain microphone preamp, high operability, and sound quality that are characteristic of the BRIDGE CAST series, The BRIDGE CAST X is now equipped with an HDMI input terminal, making it possible to import video and audio from game consoles.
The HDMI input terminals also allows streamers to upgrade their own footage by connecting a high-definition external camera. It also is equipped with a USB-C terminal that allows connection of two systems. It is possible to easily build a “2PC streaming” environment.
On the right, a new pad that can be assigned various functions is also included, making it easy to switch settings, play sound effects, control BGM CAST, and more. What’s more, since you can change the color of each pad’s light, you can assign a color to each function and use it without hesitation.
The audio function installed in Roland BRIDGE CAST X enables game streaming and video content production with high-quality sound.
