Epiphan Video, prominent in video solutions for higher education, announced that the video-management system provider Panopto has named the Pearl Mini, Pearl-2, and Pearl Nano as Panopto Certified hardware devices. According to the company, its Pearl family and Panopto video-management system seamlessly work together to deliver a touchless classroom-capture experience at scale.

“We are so excited for this collaboration,” says Frank Alaimo, manager of classroom technology services at the University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV). “We have been a long-time user of Panopto. And now, with the addition of Epiphan as a Panopto Certified hardware appliance and its ease of integration into our existing AV systems, UNLV has a solid platform for the streaming and recording of our students’ coursework.”

Enhancing the Classroom Experience

“The demand for classroom capture has been unprecedented, making our partnership with Panopto a game-changer for faculty, administrators and students alike,” adds Nic Milani, VP of product, marketing and sales for Epiphan Video. “Many Panopto customers trust Epiphan for a touchless experience, ease of integration, and ability to manage video at scale with limited resources. Certification provides confidence to all Panopto customers that our teams are working together at the highest levels to define the future of video on campus.”

The Epiphan Pearl family works with existing AV control platforms such as Crestron, Q-SYS, and Extron. It also works with cameras, displays, projectors, microphones, audio mixers/DSPs, and more to deliver a superior capture experience across campus. Epiphan also has cloud management tools for remote access, management and maintenance. This then allows a single staff member to manage hundreds of endpoints through one simple interface.

“We are [esctatic] to announce that the Epiphan Pearl family is now Panopto Certified. This certification signifies the completion of rigorous testing to ensure the high-quality compatibility and seamless integration of Epiphan hardware with Panopto’s leading video-management software,” says Chris Alibaruho, head of partnerships and strategic alliances at Panopto. “Together, Panopto and Epiphan are dedicated to empowering educators and students to improve classroom engagement and learning outcomes with a comprehensive video-capture solution designed specifically for higher education.”
