    ESP1151 - Overview

    The ultimate all-in-one live video production system!

    The Epiphan Pearl-2™ 2 RU rackmount version is a video switcher, recorder, streamer, splitter, and scaler all in one. This is the 6-Source version of the Pearl-2 and it's designed for portable live production and includes a hard-shell carrying case. With six video inputs and four for XLR professional audio, 4K streaming* and recording, NDI support, chroma keying, and much more, Pearl-2 brings the pro features and processing power required for the most demanding live events.

    Reach viewers everywhere
    Simultaneously live stream to YouTube, Facebook, and other content delivery networks and content management systems using SRT, HLS, MPEG-DASH, custom RTMP/RTMPS, and RTSP. At the same time, use the built-in streaming server to stream locally to web browsers, smart TVs, and set-top boxes. Deep integration with Kaltura and Panopto video platforms means no complicated stream URLs to set up. Just schedule your webcast events or start streaming right from Pearl-2's built-in touch screen.

    Share your webcasts
    Locally share unicast or multicast streams to up to 50 viewers with popular streaming protocols like HTTP, HLS, FLV, ASF, UPnP, and SAP.

    Stream securely
    Use SRT end-to-end 256-bit AES encryption, HLS and MPEG-DASH over HTTPS, or RTMPS for secure content streaming.
