Epiphan Video launches Pearl Mini All-in-One Live Production Streaming Device

Epiphan Video announced the official launch of their new portable all-in-one live production system, Pearl Mini. Pearl Mini is a hardware solution that contains everything users need to capture, encode, stream and record professional-quality live video. The system offers two HDMI inputs and one SDI input, allowing users to mix multiple sources into custom layouts and encode two separate programs simultaneously in resolutions up to 1080p, via H.264. Users can operate Pearl Mini using the device’s user-friendly touch screen, web-based Admin panel or Epiphan Live mobile tablet interface.

Designed to enable professional live video across a variety of markets and industries, Pearl Mini is designed for corporate and marketing communications, live event production, lecture capture in higher education and others. We here at rAVe use the Pearl for all our streaming events!

In the live event industry, operators can use Pearl Mini to stream live switched programs to multiple destinations while simultaneously recording for post-production. Within educational institutions, lecturers and AV technicians can use Pearl Mini to easily capture, record and stream lectures, conduct one-on-one remote tutorials and create a library of video on demand in their LMS/CMS.

In corporate settings, users can live stream meetings, presentations and training to increase stakeholder engagement, enhance communication strategies and boost corporate brand. While marketing teams can use Pearl Mini to create dynamic live streams that increase brand awareness, generate audience engagement and help tell their brand’s story.

Here are all the specs.
