Capture 4 HD Sources

With built-in support for SDI (3G-SDI, HD-SDI, SD-SDI), HDMI™, DVI and VGA, Pearl can capture just about any video source you have. Audio capture is supported over HDMI and SDI and through stereo TRS audio jacks.

Stream to viewers everywhere

Stream to local viewers using browsers or media players or use Pearl’s CDN integration to share with a large audience. You can even stream to Smart TVs and set-top boxes. Have as many as four different 1080p streams at 30 fps – all from one Pearl!

Switch Video Sources Live

Pearl is a video mixer! Use the touch screen or the web UI to preview and change the live content. Changes are reflected immediately in your video stream and on displays connected to Pearl’s video output ports.

Create Custom Layouts

Use the web UI to arrange your video sources into custom layouts

  • Crop and resize up to 4 video sources to create completely custom layouts (including picture in picture)
  • Add images including backgrounds and transparent pngs for overlays
  • Include date, timestamping or other text
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     

Dual Encoder Rack Mount System

Stream locally

Use Pearl’s built-in streaming server to share via unicast or multicast stream to up to 50 viewers. Select from live streaming formats including HTTP, FLV, ASF, MJPEG and HLS to stream video to media players and web browsers or UPnP and SAP sharing to stream to Smart TVs and set top boxes.

Stream to CDNs

Publish your live video stream to a large audience using an enterprise streaming server or CDN using RTMP or RTSP. Want to use two CDNs or stream to both a CDN and an enterprise server? No problem, duplicate the channel and publish the same stream to both places simultaneously.

Capture ISOs in full detail

Stream your content picture in picture, with any desired resolution, while also recording original, high quality ISOs for post-processing. For high-density solutions, we suggest using Pearl Rackmount Twin with one embedded Pearl doing streaming, and the other dedicated to recording ISOs.
Pearl integrates easily with content management systems (CMS) and with learning management systems (LMS) such as Blackboard, Kaltura, Mediasite and Moodle. Our customers love Pearl because it works with the systems you already have in place.
