How Pearl Kaltura integration works

Pearl-2, Pearl Mini, Pearl Nexus, and Pearl Nano video production systems integrate seamlessly with Kaltura. Just register Pearl with Kaltura and you can then set the system to automatically stream or record at a certain time, or start ad hoc events right from Pearl’s built-in screen.

Easily manage events and recordings

Pearl will automatically push scheduled recordings to the correct folder on Kaltura, saving administration time after events. For ad hoc events, users can authenticate to Kaltura from Pearl’s built-in screen to enable automatic file uploading.

Pearl’s screen also shows when an event is underway and a countdown for upcoming events. To see a full list of scheduled events, simply hop into Pearl’s intuitive UI.

API integration with in-room control systems

Easily monitor and control your video through the API integration with control systems:

  • crestron

    Integrate your Pearl into any Crestron space using the Crestron-developed Control Module

  • Q-sys

    Bring streaming and recording to any Q-SYS space with the secure Q-SYS plugin for Pearl
