InfoComm 2014 Conference logoPalo Alto, California – June 18, 2014 – Epiphan Systems, a leading maker of technology for capturing, recording, encoding and streaming audio/video content from almost any source, today introduced Pearl™, its first appliance that can stream and record multiple HD sources simultaneously, including 3G- and HD-SDI cameras, at rates of 60 frames per second and resolutions up to 2048×2048.

“This is the most advanced and flexible capture, streaming, and recording platform ever produced by Epiphan”

Conceived as a portable desktop or rack solution for streaming and recording live AV content, Epiphan’s Pearl can combine multiple HD AV inputs and add client branding to create a single distinctive video layout with output resolution up to 4K. In another first for Epiphan, Pearl features a front-panel touch-screen controller as well as remote control capability, and it can encode for both RTMP and RTSP streaming, allowing it to be used with leading content distribution networks, such as Akamai, Livestream, Wowza, and YouTube. “This is the most advanced and flexible capture, streaming, and recording platform ever produced by Epiphan,” said David Kirk, Vice President of Product Marketing.

Pearl will be a very appealing solution to our customers in education, healthcare, security, worship, business, and industry. It’s also a complementary component for other companies’ video content management systems.” Visually striking in design and brushed metal finish, Pearl is equipped with two inputs each for TRS audio, HDMI™/DVI, VGA, and SDI; two USB 2.0 ports; and one Gigabit Ethernet port. For compatibility with commonly-used AV sources, Pearl supports SAP and UPnP for set-top boxes and media players. For post-production flexibility, it can record the streamed program as well as the original sources. Pricing and availability will be announced shortly.
