An interview from the 2023 NAB Show in New York City with Julian Fernandez of Epiphan at the Broadfield Distrubting Booth. Epiphan Video empowers creators and businesses around the world to produce broadcast-quality content with intuitive, innovative, and trusted hardware and cloud services. Epiphan solutions see use in numerous verticals including education, live event production, corporate, government, and legal.

The Epiphan Pearl Mini Live Video Production System lets you switch, record, and stream up to two HD video inputs. This touchscreen-operated device will fit right into classrooms, lecture halls, houses of worship, or any other situation that requires simple switching operations with the capacity to record and stream content live.

Simultaneously stream live to YouTube, Facebook, or any other content delivery network or content management system. At the same time, use the built-in streaming server to stream locally to web browsers, smart TVs, and set-top boxes.

On the rear panel, SDI and HDMI inputs are available for cameras, playback devices, and computers; no scaling or scan-conversion is necessary. For audio, combo jacks support XLR microphones and 1/4" TRS connections. 3.5mm microphone and stereo RCA line inputs are available as well. An HDMI output can be used to monitor any video input or the switched program.

In a portable design with 12G-SDI and HDMI 1080p60 inputs, the Epiphan Pearl Nano can be used for simple encoding productions or much more complex setups thanks to its expansive feature set and versatility, and 4K streaming and recording options are available with an add-on license.

Pearl Nano features an HDMI program out, zero-latency HDMI pass-through to local monitors, and audio support via dual XLR, RCA, and USB inputs. Streamline your setup even further with the ability to power Nano over PoE+ instead of the included power supply. An SD card slot on the front and an expansion bay supporting M.2 SATA SSDs, allow you to record locally and then automatically transfer the files to a USB drive, local server, or network-attached storage device.

The advanced and easy-to-use streaming and recording functions enable you to integrate the Nano into elaborate productions. SRT encoding and decoding capabilities along with end-to-end control allow the Nano to be used as a contribution encoder for remote guests. Broad streaming protocol support lets you stream to any CDN or streaming server using protocols including SRT, HLS, RTMP, and RTMPS.

The Pearl-2 Base Video Mixer from Epiphan is a powerful live-production mixer that lets you create visually appealing live video programs by combining, encoding, switching, and recording up to six video sources and two audio sources. With Pearl-2 you can share any kind of video, anytime, anywhere. Simple to use with a web-based portal for initial configuration, you get a drag and drop interface to create completely customizable layouts for your live stream. You can choose to keep Pearl-2's default encoding settings or customize them to meet your exact needs. Control the video recorder and video switcher capabilities via the touchscreen or the tablet-friendly Epiphan Live interface.
