Key functions at your fingertips

Nano’s front screen offers quick access to essential functions including basic configuration and easy streaming and recording. During events, the built-in screen serves as at-a-glance verification of your audio level and video program for production peace of mind.

Cloud-based configuration and monitoring

Streamline the configuration and monitoring of multiple Pearl Nanos and other Epiphan devices with centralized access to key device statistics including operational status, system load, unit temperature, available storage, and overall health.

Elevate your productions

Build a beautiful layout for your video program with Pearl Nano’s powerful custom layout designer. Create anything from simple picture-in-picture layouts to eye-popping compositions featuring dynamic backgrounds and other custom graphics – whatever suits your event best.

Ideal for SRT contributions

The compact and lightweight Pearl Nano supports Haivision’s open-source Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) protocol for secure, high-quality, low-latency video streaming over any given network.

Pair with Panopto or Kaltura

Deep integration with Panopto and Kaltura lets you start and stop scheduled streaming or recording events using Nano’s built-in screen and controls. The system can also push recordings to a user’s folder on either platform to save administration time after events.

Set up and stream

Built-in video and professional audio inputs

Simplify your streaming and recording setup with the ability to directly connect HDMI and SDI video sources to Nano along with professional XLR audio and RCA.

HDMI pass-through

For easy confidence monitoring or content projection, Nano’s HDMI pass-through can display video sources on in-room monitors with zero latency.

Broad streaming protocol support

Stream to any content distribution network or streaming server using modern protocols like SRT, HLS, or MPEG-DASH, or more common ones like RTMP or RTMPS.

Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+)

Streamline your setup even further with the ability to power Nano over Ethernet in addition to DC power.

Flexible storage

Nano makes it easy to record, transfer, and back up files with a variety of storage options.


Pearl Nano includes an SD card slot on the front of the device for removable storage.


Need more local storage? Just add an M.2 SSD to Nano’s expansion bay.

Nano can automatically transfer recorded files to a USB drive, local server, or network-attached storage device.

No-fuss networking and security

Easily add Pearl Nano to any network and prevent unauthorized access with a bevy of security features including DHCP and LDAP support, role-based access control, 802.1x network access control, and SSL.
