Epiphan Video Connects the Video Conferencing and Broadcast Worlds with Microsoft Teams

Epiphan Video, a global leader in video capture, streaming, and recording solutions, today announced Epiphan Connect™, a cloud-based tool that makes broadcast-quality live streaming more accessible through the convenience and familiarity of Microsoft Teams.

Epiphan Connect enables users to extract Teams participant feeds and bring them into any device or software capable of decoding the Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) streaming protocol. Users can display feeds up to 1080p and with isolated audio, mirroring what’s achievable with professional broadcast workflows through the intuitive Epiphan Connect and Teams interfaces.

Professional broadcasts include elements like branded layouts, live switching, and dynamic titles and graphics – all elements necessary for creating compelling content. With Epiphan Connect, these capabilities are now possible through the convenience of Teams.

“These days we’re all aware of the critical role video plays in keeping people engaged and informed, and there’s a growing understanding that quality matters for those outcomes,” says Nic Milani, Epiphan’s VP of Marketing and Business Development. “We’ve heard from more and more organizations searching for a tool like Epiphan Connect that blends the best of both worlds: the convenience of video conferencing and the quality of professional broadcast.”

“Epiphan Connect unlocks the full Microsoft Teams experience, giving people powerful new options for creating compelling content,” says Aaron Linne, senior program manager, Microsoft Teams for Broadcasters at Microsoft. “In collaboration with Epiphan, we aim to offer an easier, more convenient way to create high-quality live and on-demand content, powered by Teams.”
