Palo Alto, CA, January 30th, 2023 — Epiphan Video, a global leader in video capture, streaming, and recording solutions, today announced new support for NDI® and Microsoft Teams. The Pearl-2 and Pearl Mini now integrate networked cameras and 270 million Microsoft Teams users to deliver the most versatile and intuitive production system on the market. The award-winning Pearl Family of products makes every space a studio while empowering storytellers to make every video an experience.
“Pearl continues to reinvent itself. Now, every school, business, or house of worship can build hybrid-capable studios affordably, trusting it will continue to evolve as technology does,” says Nic Milani, VP of Marketing and Business Development at Epiphan Video. “Historically, customers have relied on fragile workarounds for hybrid setups. What we provide is peace of mind and approachability in a rapidly evolving marketplace.”
New and existing customers now have more flexibility in acquiring video signals with expanded NDI® connectivity support. Pearl Mini now supports two NDI®|HX sources as inputs. While Pearl-2 gets significant performance gains that allow for up to six NDI®|HX or three high-bandwidth NDI® inputs. Pearl-2 now also supports a single high-bandwidth NDI® 4K output.
“NDI® harnesses the potential of networks and a software-first approach to allow anyone to seamlessly connect video. This design naturally aligns with Epiphan’s vision of Broadcast without Barriers,” explains Will Waters, VP of Product for NDI®. “Working with Epiphan brings uniquely affordable, convenient, and adaptable solutions for creating and sharing video content with NDI® tools.”
