Epiphan Video announces the launch of Pearl-2, their next generation an all-in-one live video encoder. Pearl-2 brings live 4K video encoding and streaming to the impressive list of features it inherits from its predecessor, Pearl. Along with 4K support, Pearl-2 adds significantly more processing power, giving it the ability to handle up to six simultaneous 1080p video signals at 30 frames per second.
Pearl-2, like its namesake, captures, streams and records multiple video sources simultaneously. The company says that many of Pearl-2’s hardware upgrades, including USB 3.0, XLR audio inputs, 12-G SDI inputs and 4K HDMI output ports are the direct result of customer feature requests.
