The 2 RU Pearl 2 Rackmount Production Switcher from Epiphan is designed for installation in a rack. It is a powerful production 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. With Pearl-2 you can share any kind of video, anytime, anywhere. 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.
