Epiphan has experienced a significant amount of exciting change these past few summer months. To start, we’ve undergone a complete corporate rebrand from ‘Epiphan Systems’ to the more aptly titled ‘Epiphan Video’. We then took to the Infocomm 2015 tradeshow with our eye-catching rainbow blimp in tow, where we showcased the significant, game-changing live switching features for our popular streaming/recording product, Pearl, and proudly displayed our latest driverless video grabber device – AV.io HD.
All this flurry of activity has been more than enough to turn a few heads. More and more we’re seeing both our name and our products being used and mentioned in a variety of different online formats, including reviews, discussions, AV solutions, and tutorials. Take a look at a few examples to see what I mean:
AV.io HD review and demonstration
A top-quality video review by EposVox Media. The video is concise at roughly 5 minutes, but it’s definitely not lacking for depth. The reviewer covers all the bases: tech specs, unboxing, first impressions, technical considerations, and even puts AV.io HD to the test by demonstrating the capture of video game content (Rocket League) from a Playstation 4 console.
Take 5 minutes and watch this video if you’re curious about AV.io HD – you won’t be disappointed.
Pearl & AV.io HD live discussion
In this video, our very own VP of product marketing, Dave Kirk, sits down with StudioTech TV’s Mark Johnson via Skype to discuss Pearl and AV.io HD. Mark gives his favourable impressions of both products, while Dave uses his product expertise to answer questions and clarify technical details.
The video itself is quite comprehensive and its duration reflects its thoroughness, but if you’re looking for precise information and an in-depth impartial review on Pearl and AV.io HD from industry experts, this is the video to watch (and make sure to be impressed by the quality of Dave’s Skype call using AV.io HD – seriously, it’s awesome).
Pearl review and demonstration
Telecom company, InterCall, gives their own overview review of Pearl, describing its features and benefits with a quick visual demonstration. What’s nice is that right away you can tell the reviewer is enthusiastic. He fires off a list Pearl’s features and benefits before moving into a demo where he showcases picture-in-picture custom layouts and live switching before finishing the review with the proclamation that Pearl is something “no studio or live event should be without”. Strong words! His enthusiasm speaks volumes.
Videoguys Pearl Tutorial
Jan Ozer, on behalf of Epiphan partner Videoguys, gives a quick Pearl feature tutorial, briefly touching upon topics such as channels, custom layouts, live switching, encoding, recording and Pearl’s famous touch screen.
It’s a concise video that not only describes Pearl’s features, but makes contextual links between features and real world applications. For example, Jan describes how certain channel setups might appeal for company-wide meetings while other configurations might be ideal for smaller weekly team meetings. He also touches on custom layouts and how different layout configurations can benefit certain streaming scenarios, such as webinars.
At less than 5 minutes, this video is definitely worth a peek.
AV.io HD customer review
Short but sweet, this customer gets right to the point with his thoughts on AV.io HD: “I’m not one to rave about pieces of kit but with this – what can I say! This video grabber from Epiphan Video just works beautifully.”
It’s a quick read of only a few paragraphs in length and it nicely epitomizes the impressions of many AV.io HD users.

Instructional video content
Less exciting, but still important, are the instructional videos. We’re seeing more and more Epiphan product tutorial and/or AV solution content cropping up on the web. Sometimes it’s helpful to learn via video walkthroughs/tutorials if that’s your preference over reading user guides.
• How to extend power & USB over Cat5 with Epiphan and sound control technologies (link here);
• How to set up a channel with Pearl (link here);
• Streaming to YouTube Live (feat. Pearl) (link here);
• *How to stream a 2-camera live production from your laptop for less than $1000 – This one is particular is definitely worth checking out. The less-than-$1000 bundle is a tantalizing price tag for this bundle.
Overall it has been a wonderful summer for reviews and third-party content, and we eagerly look forward to any future online mentions.
