Well....nowadays its not so clear because there are many different types of rocker. The best thing to do is go on each individual company's site and check out which rocker tech they are using. Here is the info on the Hero. For info on the rocker click on the word "V-Rocker" down in the tech area.
Men's Hero Limited Snowboard | Burton Snowboards
Here is the description for the V-Rocker:
A three-stage rocker thatís equally fun from park to pow, V-Rockerô features a center rocker between your feet, with additional rockers outside each foot that lift the tip and tail completely off the snow. Along the Channel zones, we added Pressure Distribution Edges for enhanced grip and power that balances the boardís loose and forgiving, skate-like feel. Together, the V-Rocker package energizes edge control while disengaging tip and tail contact points to create a catch-free feel thatís incredibly forgiving, floaty, poppy, and fun on all terrain.

Sure. Camber is the traditional snowboard set up. Where the middle of the board between your feet has somewhat of an arch to it, which ultimately helps create more pop in the board. The tips still flare up on the ends.
With rocker or "reverse camber", the part between your legs is flat, no arching, and the tips of the board are shaped up in a more extreme fashion. This allows for a different kind of contact between the snow and the rider, useful to preform easier butters (spinning on the ground), better control in most conditions other than powder at normal speeds, and in many rocker boards it provides more control when hitting smaller jumps and doing presses.
However, downfalls are is that it is a completely different riding experience, doesnt ride as well in powder or at higher speeds, and the boards tend to not be very firm at all.
Just depends what you are looking for. Hope this helps! I ride traditional camber just for reference.

|SchultzLS2||The Burton Hero is on sale now and I have heard nothing but great things about it. It is geared towards the freestyle rider but have heard it is a great all mountain board.|
