Pearl keeps getting better: New MultiViewer and CMS enhancements

June 2, 2021

MultiViewer, pause CMS events, and Panopto device template support – Pearl keeps getting better!
  • With the powerful new MultiViewer, we’re giving more confidence to educators and presenters.
  • CMS enhancements make events more flexible and easy to manage than ever before.

We’re adding MultiViewer, a powerful new way to view a custom mix of channels and video sources on the HDMI output port at the same time.

We’re also adding new pause and extend features to Content Management System (CMS) event recording and webcasting, plus other features like support for Panopto’s customized device templates for easy and more consistent event creation with your Pearl remote recorder. Educators will love these new features.

MultiViewer easy setup using preset grid layouts

Have peace of mind during your live event. MultiViewer displays multiple video sources plus channels in preset grid layouts so you can see them all at the same time on a confidence monitor. The preset layouts make setup a breeze.

Multiple source confidence monitoring with minimal CPU impact

Save processing power and do more with your Pearl system while previewing multiple video sources on the HDMI output port. With MultiViewer, the video output economizes CPU usage without lowering the frame rate of channel recordings and live streams.

Quick signal-loss detection for effective confidence monitoring live broadcasts

MultiViewer is perfect for your production control room to keep your crew on top of what’s going on during a live broadcast. Instantly see that all your video sources are connected and working. And the displayed audio meters let you see at a glance if your source has audio.

Free up more channels for your live presentations

Don’t use up a channel and manually create a multiple-source layout to view on the output port – use MultiViewer. Save your Pearl channels for more important things like recording ISOs or streaming to multiple destinations at different encoding settings. Whatever you choose to do, you’ll have more channels and CPU power to do it when you use MultiViewer for confidence monitoring.

Pause and extend CMS recordings and webcasts

We’re making it simple for you to extend your active CMS events in five, ten, or fifteen minute intervals right from the touch screen. And for Panopto events, press pause when you need a break but don’t want the event to stop. You can also mute the audio while paused and display an “event paused” image.

Panopto device template support

Panopto device templates are an easy way to apply custom event settings to remote recorders when you’re creating new events. Adding support for Panopto’s customized device templates will give you all the convenience and benefits of using them with your Pearl remote recorder.

Firmware 4.14.12 will be available on June 7.
