The Epiphan Pearl Rackmount is a 2 RU live production video mixer that lets you efficiently capture, switch, stream, and record video. With advanced automatic channel creation and a front panel touchscreen, setup is very simple. Simply plug in power and one or two sources to see your captured stream on the touchscreen, connect to a network, and start streaming right away.

The Pearl Rackmount is the same as the portable version of the Pearl but features an integrated power supply and a USB port on the front panel, in addition to the two on the rear for easier access. It also has a 512GB SSD (instead of the Pearl's 1TB HDD), which stores approximately 150 hours of HD recordings.

The Pearl Rackmount allows you to capture four HD sources at the same time via SDI, HDMI, and VGA inputs on the rear. You can also use optional adapter cables to capture from DVI and component sources. Audio is captured embedded in SDI and HDMI sources and can also be captured independently via onboard stereo TRS jacks.

With the Pearl Rackmount you can record your videos while simultaneously outputting up to four 1080p streams at 30 fps, or two 1080p streams at 60 fps. You can also output a single Ultra HD 4K (3840 x 2160) stream at lower frame rates.

The multi-featured front panel touchscreen display can be used for live switching, confidence monitoring, quick configuration, system information, recording control, and streaming control. It can also display a VU meter with quasi-peak metering. In addition to the touchscreen display, two Mini DisplayPort connectors are also available for local video output with audio, for confidence monitoring.

Since the Pearl's original release, Epiphan has continuously enhanced it via firmware upgrades. The quasi-peak metering feature mentioned above, for example, was added to the Pearl via such an enhancement. Accordingly, more enhancements may additionally be made in the future.
