We've only been selling Epiphan products for a few months, but this review of the Epiphan Pearl is spot on. These guys design their products for medical, industrial and military grade applications. Now they are set to dominate in education, worship and corporate video capture and streaming as well. The Pearl is an extremely versitile product, with multiple I/O and encoding support. It's a stand alone unit, that delivers outstanding perfomance and a feature set unmatched in the industry!

The Epiphan Pearl - ProAV Getting it Right!
Today we wanted to talk about an amazing new streaming/live recording product AND a Professional AV manufacture "Getting it Right"! For those of you who have not heard of Epiphan Systems, they are a high end Pro AV manufacture from Canada who specializes is industries such as: Medical, Legal, Goverment, Education and Corporate. Their newest product the Epiphan Pearl is a ground breaking solution for live broadcast recording and streaming which is winning awards across the industry. Although the system doesn't have a USB output (my only gripe), but with RTSP/RTMP streaming integration with YouTube Live we thought this system needs a USB Pros review. This systems for me wins the best combination of affordability, functionality and ease of use award for live broadcast and streaming in a compact solution.
In a nutshell, the Epiphan Pearl provides video and audio recording and streaming with a easy to use touch screen. The Pearl supports 4 HD video sources simultaneously with both HDMI and HD-SDi video inputs available. At first look the Pearl looks sexy and approachable which is of course the goal when it comes to providing a live recording and streaming device you want a professor to be able to operate. The basic idea is that all the configurations and settings are handled through a IP connection interface that does not clutter up the touch screen. So the touch screen itself shows the results of the configuration which is normally pre-done by a IT or AV professional. read more...
