Q-SYS is a control platform that brings incredible possibilities for room management and automation. Pearl turns any Q-SYS room into a studio that enables professional video capture, enhancement, streaming, and recording to deliver broadcast quality video anywhere.

Together, Q-SYS and Pearl enable automated video capture and streaming from classrooms, lecture halls, or meeting rooms.

Q-SYS managed plugin for easy integration

Using the Epiphan Pearl plugin, Q-SYS users can easily control and automate their Pearl:

  • Monitor all audio and video inputs
  • Start and stop recordings and livestreams
  • Switch layouts
  • Manage multiple channels independently

The controls in the Epiphan Pearl plugin can be automated through control pins or scripting, and can be dragged onto a Q-SYS UCI to streamline live or recorded events.
