Powerful YuJa hardware solutions

Pearl-2, Pearl Mini, and Pearl Nano hardware encoders integrate directly with YuJa. Once paired, Pearl can access your YuJa calendar to automatically start and stop recordings or streams at scheduled times. Even better, Pearl will automatically push event recordings to YuJa, minimizing administration time and ensuring your content makes it to the right place.

Stream and record with confidence

Every Pearl system includes a built-in confidence monitor, enabling presenters to verify their video and audio levels at a glance. It’s also easy to set up a multi-source confidence monitor with Pearl’s MultiViewer, which can display up to six channels or inputs on a single screen.

Why use Pearl with YuJa

Purpose-built for streaming and recording, Pearl hardware encoders make it easy to create videos that look and sound professional. Pearl systems are built and rigorously tested for long-term reliability, so they’re sure to serve your organization for years to come.

Create broadcast-quality productions

With Pearl’s variety of video inputs (HDMI, SDI, USB, SRT, and more), you can connect high-end cameras, laptops, tablets, document cameras, and microphones to produce first-rate live streams and recordings. Support for XLR or 1⁄4” TRS professional audio keeps your content sounding great.

Create custom layouts and ISOs

Combine video and audio sources to create dynamic layouts for your audience, or capture individual ISOs.

Train users with ease

Pearl’s intuitive user interfaces make the device easy for anyone to use. With hands-off recording and streaming workflows, your users can focus on delivering great content instead of the technology that’s capturing it.

Pair YuJa with hardware you can trust

Pearl systems eliminate crashes and other interruptions common with ordinary computer systems. With this powerful dedicated appliance, you never have to worry about disruptions while streaming or recording.

Preview and monitor for peace of mind

For troubleshooting and production peace of mind, Pearl systems feature a built-in screen that offers at-a-glance video and audio monitoring. For added visibility, Pearl’s MultiViewer can display your channels and inputs on an external display.


Send your video to multiple places at once

Stream simultaneously to YouTube, Facebook, and other content delivery networks (CDNs). Pearls support a wide range of streaming protocols including SRT, HLS, and MPEG-DASH, and traditional protocols like RTMP and RTMPS.

Let others know production is underway

Connect a USB status light to Pearl to let  in-rooms audience know that streaming or recording is taking place. (Select models from Busylight and Delcom Products are supported.)

Save administration time after events

After a scheduled event, Pearl will automatically push recordings to the right place on YuJa.

Integrate with your Crestron system

The Crestron-developed Control Module for Pearl encoders makes it easier to add Pearl to your Crestron AV system as a secure and reliable video capture device.

Add to your network with ease

DHCP and LDAP support, 802.1x network access control, role-based access control, and SSL, and other advanced security features make it easy to add Pearl to your network as a secure YuJa hardware solution.
