Epiphan PEARL-2 Overview

  • 1Description

The Pearl-2 Rackmount Twin Video Production Device from Epiphan is a production video mixer that lets you create visually appealing live video programs by combining, encoding, switching, and recording up to six video sources and two audio sources. Simple to use with a web-based portal for initial configuration, you get a drag and drop interface to create completely customizable layouts for your live stream. You can choose to keep Pearl-2's default encoding settings, or customize them to meet your exact needs. Control the video recorder and video switcher capabilities via the touchscreen or the tablet-friendly Epiphan Live interface. It features a 2 RU rackmount that contains two complete (and independent) Pearl-2 systems.
