The easiest solution for 4K* streaming, recording and switching

Pearl-2™ brings the pro features and processing power required for the most demanding live events including 4K streaming and recording, live switching, NDI support, and chroma keying. Add Epiphan Cloud and you can control Pearl-2 from anywhere to produce broadcast-quality content from a distance.

*Requires the 4K feature add-on

The Pearl-2 Rackmount Video Production Device from Epiphan is a production video mixer that lets you create visually appealing live video programs by combining, encoding, switching, and recording up to six video sources and two audio sources. Simple to use with a web-based portal for initial configuration, you get a drag and drop interface to create completely customizable layouts for your live stream. You can choose to keep Pearl-2's default encoding settings or customize them to meet your exact needs. Control the video recorder and video switcher capabilities via the touchscreen or the tablet-friendly Epiphan Live interface. It features a 2 RU rackmount server with all the same functionality as the portable Pearl-2 but is designed for installation and operation in a rack.
