"It’s best to choose a hardware encoder like Epiphan’s Pearl devices for your hybrid event production instead of a software encoder. You’re better served using a system that was built from the ground up for live streaming and recording instead of general-purpose hardware full of parallel software and processes competing for resources. And with features like easy remote configuration, versatile streaming options, and the ability to multistream, Pearl offers everything you need to produce a successful hybrid event."
