International character support

You can include certain international characters in the channel name, layout name, video and audio input names, text overlays, and in the name of recorded files. Common character sets for the following languages are approved:

  • Western European/Nordic languages: Danish, Dutch, English, French, German, Icelandic, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish, and Swedish.
  • Central/Eastern European languages: Bosnian, Croatian, Czech, Hungarian, Polish, Romanian, Slovak, and Russian.

Important considerations

  • Use only alphanumeric and diacritic characters in metadata descriptions. The whole metadata string is refused if any special currency or mathematical symbol appears in the description. You must remove the offending characters before Pearl-2 will accept the description, see Add or remove channel metadata.
  • Do not include any special currency, mathematical symbols, and other special characters such as slashes or spaces in the channel name. Pearl-2 replaces special characters with an underscore.
