Pearl-2 Rackmount Twin with option for 4K

Pearl-2 Rackmount Twin pairs two Pearl-2 systems on a rack for maximum space efficiency and the perfect all-in-one system for live video switching, streaming and recording in HD and 4K.

Live stream up to six channels to YouTube, Facebook and other CDNs while simultaneously recording your video program for post-production or video on demand.

  • Two full Pearl-2 systems in the same 2U chassis

  • Live video switching using the touch screen or web UI

  • Stream audio + 12G-SDI, HD-SDI, SD-SDI, HDMI™

  • Up to 6 1080p HD streams at 30 fps or 2 at 60 fps

  • Visual layout editor for simple creation of custom multi-view layouts

Pearl-2 Rackmount Twin includes two independent Pearl-2 systems together in a single 2U chassis for high-density installation in a rack. Perfect for situations when you want to have one system recording ISOs while the other does live production, or where rack space is limited. These two live production video mixers let you capture, record, switch and stream video effortlessly.

Like all Pearl-2 systems, Pearl-2 Rackmount Twin features automatic channel creation and front panel touch screens for confidence monitoring, live switching and streaming/recording control. Simply plug in power and one or two sources to see your captured video on the touch screen. Use the video output ports to display your created channels or sources on larger confidence monitors or local displays and projectors. You can choose to keep Pearl-2 Rackmount Twin’s default encoding settings or customize them to meet your exact needs. Control the video recorder and video switcher capabilities in both systems via the touch screen or the tablet-friendly Epiphan Live interface.
