Epiphan Video Announces Pearl-2 Recorder - Encoder

Pearl-2 is a new live video encoder from Epiphan Video which supports 4K video and the ability to handle up to six simultaneous 1080p video signals at 30 frames per second.

David Kirk, vp of Product Marketing with Epiphan Video, says “We launched our original Pearl system two years ago and it continues to be a phenomenal success for Epiphan. This next-generation hardware puts Pearl at the forefront of live 4K encoding and provides the foundation for building out our roadmap of exciting new features.”

Pearl-2, captures, streams and records multiple video sources simultaneously. Many of Pearl-2’s hardware upgrades, including USB 3.0, XLR audio inputs, 12-G SDI inputs and 4K HDMI output ports are the result of customer requests.

“We have learned so much working with customers who have deployed Pearl into a wide variety of situations - from live event production to user experience labs and much more,” says Kirk. “We’ve poured that feedback into Pearl over the past two years, and we developed Pearl-2 to fulfill even more customer requests.”
