Epiphan Firmware 4.23 with Opencast integration is available now

Epiphan Firmware 4.23 is available now as a free update for all Pearl Nexus, Pearl Mini, Pearl Nano, and Pearl-2 systems.

This release's biggest highlight is that Epiphan Pearl systems can be fully integrated with Opencast. It enables academic institutions that use Opencast as their video management system to leverage Pearl as a reliable, automated video capture hardware solution.

Key features of firmware 4.23

  • Added support for Opencast Content Management System
  • For ad hoc or unscheduled Panopto events, added support to upload recordings directly into the device’s default folder
  • With this release, should a reboot occur during a Panopto event, the recording will not only continue seamlessly but also, upon the event’s conclusion at the predetermined time, it will autonomously upload to Panopto for processing, eliminating the need for any manual input.
