Streaming and lecture recording Thomas More University

Thomas More University College offers more than 35 professional bachelor programs to 17,000 students across 11 locations. Staff often asked for IT/AV support to record lectures and stream to the Kaltura platform.
The challenge of Thomas More University College:
  • There was a need for a mobile solution for recording and streaming lectures.
  • The solution had to be easy to use, with little or no help. It's not always possible to provide personal IT/AV support.
  • A direct link to the Kaltura platform was essential.
  • The solution had to be mobile and multifunctional.

Solution: Pearl-2 and Pearl Mini

Thomas More University College found the right solution in two Epiphan products;
  • Epiphan Pearl-2
  • Epiphan Pearl Mini

Five reasons to choose Pearl-2 and Pearl Mini:

1. Seamless CMS support with Kaltura and Panopto
Pearl-2 and Pearl Mini work seamlessly with Kaltura and Panopto. Full API integration means no complicated programming is required. Register and you can start streaming a video right away or schedule a recording for the future. Both recordings automatically end up in the right "folder" within Kaltura. Pearl-2 and Pearl Mini offer a versatile and no-fuss experience for planned VOD multi-camera events, ad-hoc events and webcasting.
Built-in security features such as 802.1x, RTMPS, HTTPS and LDAP make the Pearl-2 and Pearl Mini a great hardware encoder solution for recording lectures and business communications.
2. IT-friendly
With the 802.1x authentication certificate you can easily install the Epiphan system in your secure network.
3. No costs for the college system
Unlike many alternative lecture capture systems, Epiphan Pearl-2 and Mini offer the best in their class for capturing lectures at no additional cost.
4. Live switching
The Pearl-2 and Pearl Mini touch screens make it possible to switch between video sources and layouts in no time at all. Or use browser-based Epiphan Live and switch on from anywhere using a tablet, PC or smartphone.
Design custom layouts, such as PiP, with the simple drag-and-drop custom layout editor. Combine video sources and crop of scale video sources to create dynamic layouts. Add transparent png images, custom backgrounds, text overlays and timestamps.
5. Last but not least: dummy proof!
Even inexperienced operators can easily record and stream a lecture with the Pearl-2 and Pearl Mini. With One Touch you can easily start or stop a recording or stream it via the touch screen. After the Pearl-2 or Pearl Mini has been registered with Kaltura, every teacher, student and employee always has access to the correct file.
