Kaltura is the first video platform that Epiphan Video has integrated into its Pearl-2™ family of all-in-one video production systems.
New York, NY, January 14, 2019 – Kaltura, the leading video technology provider, and Epiphan Video, a world-class manufacturer of professional audiovisual capture, recording, and streaming products, announced today that the companies have integrated their technologies to provide a seamless video capture experience. Epiphan has joined the Kaltura Video Marketplace and has fully integrated its Pearl family of all-in-one video switching, streaming, and recording systems with the Kaltura video platform.
“A robust video platform like Kaltura is important to manage and deliver video content securely,” said David Kirk, Vice President of Marketing at Epiphan. “Pearl-2 and Pearl Mini with their 802.1x network security are perfect video encoders for easy, secure lecture capture on enterprise networks now that they support scheduled and unscheduled VOD and live streaming events all managed within Kaltura.”

Pearl’s built-in touch screen and Admin panel allow for quick, visual event monitoring and one touch starting and stopping of ad hoc recordings on the fly.
“We are excited to be the first video platform to be integrated with Epiphan Video’s encoders, as we continue to lead the Open Capture Standard for better interoperability between software and hardware in the video capture ecosystem,” said Michal Tsur, Kaltura Co-founder, President and General Manager. “Epiphan is a great addition to our Video Marketplace, which allows our customers to easily select best-of-breed solutions to fit their specific needs.”
