NDI Support Debuts for Epiphan Video Pearl-2 Video Production Systems

Epiphan Video announces they’re adding NDI and NDI|HX support to the Epiphan Pearl-2 all-in-one video switching, streaming and recording system.

Pearl-2 all-in-one video encoders and adding NDI is another step in our strategic commitment to offer IT friendly AV solutions, making Pearl-2 a choice for enterprise communications, lecture capture and anyone who wants to use their existing Ethernet infrastructure for AV. The Pearl 2 is what we, here at rAVe, use for our LIVE streams, too!

NDI transports broadcast quality video with low latency over Gigabit Ethernet networks. No extra HDMI or SDI cables required. With NDI on Pearl-2, you get better looking video over longer distances in resolutions up to 4K. Pearl-2 accepts video and audio from a wide variety of NDI enabled devices and cameras on the network. It’s a lot simpler to incorporate two-way video conferencing into live presentations using Skype or any other third party application that supports NDI without having to use one of the HDMI inputs on Pearl.

Simply connect Pearl-2 to your existing Gigabit Ethernet network. NDI support allows Pearl to be recognized instantly by other NDI resources on the network. Plus it’s just as easy to share the output from Pearl-2 with other NDI devices on the network. With 802.1x network security included, Pearl-2 integrates seamlessly into secure networks. You know you’re saving time and resources when set up is this easy.

Epiphan is also adding USB video and USB audio support to the popular Pearl Mini all-in-one production system in response to requests from many of their Pearl Mini customers. At the same time, support for RTSP inputs will added to Pearl Mini.
