With 2015 only just behind us, now is the perfect time to reflect on our many milestones within the past 12 months – and what a year it has been!
Innovative new products, fresh features for existing products, new creative developments, a strong presence at a variety of tradeshows, a plethora of third-party reviewer interest and more. Here’s how we made an impression on the pro AV space during 2015.
In June 2015, “Epiphan Systems” officially adopted the trade name “Epiphan Video”, complete with a fresh corporate logo!
Innovative new pro AV products
Our new AV.io line of video grabbers takes advantage of the UVC drivers built that come with your computer to simplify the video capture process. Our two products in this line, AV.io HD and AV.io SDI, have been met with great excitement upon release, and the interest shows no sign of slowing down!
Next generation product development
Our research and development team has been working diligently in creating the next generation of remote support, codenamed ‘Apollo’. Check out our blog post or our teaser video to learn how Apollo works, see it in action remotely controlling/troubleshooting two kinds of machinery and learn how it takes the concept of remote support to new heights.
Fresh features and hardware updates
In addition to numerous feature enhancements, we’ve added significant upgrades to existing product favourites:
- Live production mixing! This means you can switch between various custom multi-source layouts without disrupting the live stream.
- Custom multi-source layouts which allows users to create unique visual displays using source cropping, image backgrounds, branding and transparent PNG
- Configuration presets for quick and simple streaming/recording set-up
- Hardware-accelerated video encoding
- Front-mounted audio jack on Pearl for confidence monitoring
- …and lots more!
And to make our products even easier to use, we launched searchable online help for our most popular products:
|Pearl||Standalone VGA Grid||AV.io HD||DVI2USB 3.0|
|VGADVI Recorder Pro||Networked VGA Grid||AV.io SDI||SDI2USB 3.0|
Third-party Epiphan web content galore!
There were third-party reviews, tutorials and demos abound in 2015, with many pro AV enthusiasts eager to get their hands on the latest Epiphan products and give their impressions.
Here are a couple recent ones from reviewer EposVox Media and StudioTech TV, featuring AV.io HD and Pearl, respectively:
