Epiphan Pearl: The Ultimate Solution for Lecture Capture and Medical Streaming

Epiphan Pearl is a family of video production hardware that offers intuitive systems for live streaming, recording, and switching. Whether you need to capture lectures, medical procedures, or training sessions, Epiphan Pearl has a solution for you.

Epiphan Video, technology on the edge

With the recent updates made to the Epiphan brand, can you expect the same quality and service from their well-known products, such as the Pearl 2, Pearl Mini, Pearl Nano or Epiphan Connect? The answer is – yes! Let's look at some of the enhancements of the Epiphan range.

Recording PTZ Cameras

PTZ cameras are not like traditional camcorders. A few can record video internally to a Micro SD card, but these are the exceptions rather than the rule. Lumens, Datavideo and the high-end Panasonic PTZ Cameras (like the AW-HE130 and AW-UE150) do not have internal recording so we must look at other options. The Panasonic AW-HE38, AW-HE40, AW-HE42, and AW-UE70 can all record HD, (the UE70 can even record in UHD). This internal recording can be very useful, but it is heavily compressed so the quality is not as good as the cameras are capable of.

New launches at ISE 2020

Here's an overview of our vendors exhibiting at ISE 2020. Please call us on +44 (0)1457 851000 if you would like to book a stand tour with one of our manufacturers. BLACKMAGIC DESIGN HALL 3, STAND C140 The Video Assist 12G 5” and 7” monitor recorders are now shipping. The original HD versions were incredibly popular with AV technicians who wanted to verify SDI and HDMI feeds and check waveform levels. For production teams, their 4K HDR capture makes them a superb on-camera SD card recorder. The ATEM Mini is a very small, cost-effective 4 channel HDMI video switcher with streaming output. Great as a portable mixer or a signal switcher, it’s being adopted by everyone from conference producers to AV technicians looking for simple HDMI switching.

Holdan adds Epiphan Video to its portfolio

Epiphan Video has appointed Holdan as its UK & Ireland distributor for the full range of Epiphan’s live capture and streaming technologies. As the leading technology distributor for the professional video and broadcast markets, Holdan will work alongside Epiphan to enhance reseller support and to develop new opportunities in corporate AV, education and public sector video.

Pearl Mini / Pearl 2 v4.13

What's new in release 4.13?

We've made some awesome changes in firmware 4.13. Integration with AV Studio is replaced with Epiphan Cloud - your new destination to remotely manage and operate your Pearl Mini / Pearl 2 devices. We also made it easier for you to troubleshoot installations with more diagnostic tests and statistics. And we added support for Dynamic DNS (DDNS) and DHCP Option 81, making sure you have seamless access to Pearl Mini on the network even if a DHCP server changes Pearl Mini's IP address. Plus more enhancements are available in this latest release.

Firmware 4.13

Epiphan Cloud support Manage all your Pearl devices from Epiphan Cloud with a diagnostics dashboard for remote rescue troubleshooting, configurable email alerts, channel creation and configuration from the cloud, confidence monitoring, batch operations, remote firmware updates, and more! It's easy to get started with a free Epiphan Cloud account. For details, see:

Diagnostic tools

Diagnostic tools are added to the touch screen and Admin panel so you can instantly check the connectivity status of Pearl Mini, get the external IP address of your Pearl Mini, and more. From one easy location, you can run network diagnostics like ping, traceroute, test the network upload/download speeds, confirm domain name resolution, and probe to see if a network port is open on the network side.

Scheduled AFU

Now you can schedule file uploads to only occur during a specific period of time every 24-hours. Recordings that end within the configured time period automatically upload right away. Recordings that end outside the upload time period are queued up and upload when the scheduled upload time period is reached.

DHCP Option 81 (FQDN) support

Ensure your Domain Name Server (DNS) always has Pearl Mini's most up-to-date IP address mapped to Pearl Mini's Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN). Option 81 support means you can keep using Pearl's FQDN no matter how many times the DHCP server may change Pearl's IP address. Pearl Mini automatically asks the DHCP server to tell the Domain Name Server (DNS) to update Pearl Mini's record with any changes to Pearl Mini's IP address or FQDN.

Dynamic DNS (DDNS)

If the DHCP server doesn't support Option 81, no problem. Enabling DDNS ensures that whenever the DHCP server changes Pearl Mini's IP address, Pearl Mini informs the Dynamic Domain Name Server (DNS). Use Pearl Mini's FQDN without worry because the domain name records are always kept up-to-date. Custom,, and DDNS servers are supported.

Panopto low storage alerts

Now you can configure Pearl Mini to not send low storage alerts to Panopto.

SHA hashing algorithm support

We added support for SHA-256 and SHA-512 hashing algorithms for HLS (push) and MPEG-DASH stream authentication.

Changes affecting remote login using AV Studio

AV Studio is going away

AV Studio is being replaced by Epiphan Cloud. You'll now see Epiphan Cloud instead of AV Studio in the Admin panel as a configuration option. When the switch over occurs, Pearl Mini devices that are currently paired with AV Studio automatically migrate to Epiphan Cloud. Previously uploaded recordings and scenes related to AV Studio's post-production tools are not accessible from Epiphan Cloud. After updating Pearl Mini to firmware 4.13, all pairing functions from the Admin panel link to Epiphan Cloud. To access your devices, simply create a free Epiphan Cloud account or use your AV Studio credentials to login to Epiphan Cloud at:
