Pearl-2 encodes the video and audio it captures. You can stream your content and record it at the same time. You can even stream your switched program using a lower quality stream (i.e. 1280×720 at 2Mbps) and at the same time, make high quality recordings of each of the video inputs at full frame with a high bitrate for future re-use and post-processing.

Recorded files are stored on Pearl-2's hard drive. Plus there are a variety of automatic and manual mechanisms available to download the files.

Topics include:

For instructions on how to use Pearl-2's touch screen to start/stop scheduled recordings and authenticate with a CMS to create unscheduled ad hoc events, see CMS event controls using the touch screen.
