Reliable, simple HD and 4K live video production. The Pearl 2 lets you manage your streaming, recording and live switching in one place with this easy to use video production system.
Pearl-2 works with video sources from SD to 4K. Connect up to six sources at once to encode and stream one 4K Ultra HD program or up to six 1080p Full HD programs. Use any combination of your video sources connected to the HDMI, 4K HDMI or 12G SDI video input ports, or from IP cameras over your network. Harness the power of Pearl-2’s 6th generation Intel i7 processor to capture stunning 4K video at 30 fps (Requires purchase of the 4K feature add-on). Pearl-2’s hardware-accelerated encoder provides flawless H.264 encoding for maximum compatibility and performance with any video portal or player.
Design your own custom layouts including picture in picture using the drag-and-drop editor in Pearl-2’s web-based Admin panel. Combine, crop and scale up to 6 video sources. Customize it completely with backgrounds, overlay images, text and timestamping. Capture embedded HDMI and SDI audio or use the XLR/RCA ports for professional level audio from mixing consoles and sound equipment. Built-in attenuation and gain adjustment mean you get perfect sound fidelity.
Control and monitor your live video production with Pearl-2’s touch screen. With a touch of the finger, turn on streaming, recording or switch the layout in the live stream. Connect your headphones and monitor audio using the front-mounted 3.5 mm audio jack and on-screen VU meter. Use the touch screen or Epiphan Live to preview and change the live content in your video programs. See changes immediately in your live video stream and on displays connected to Pearl-2’s 4K HDMI video output ports. Simultaneously live stream to YouTube, Facebook and any other CDN or video portal. At the same time, use the built-in streaming server to stream locally to web browsers, smart TVs and set-top boxes.
Show content to front of house or send it to a larger confidence monitor with Pearl-2’s two 4K HDMI video output ports. Configure to share any input source or switched program output. Use Pearl-2’s built-in streaming server to share via unicast or multicast stream to up to 50 viewers with popular streaming protocols such as HTTP, HLS, FLV, ASF, UPnP and SAP. Publish your live video stream to a large audience using an enterprise streaming server or CDN using RTMP or RTSP.
