Wireless specialists Accsoon announces their new CineEye 2S Pro wireless video system with SDI and 1200 feet range.
The innovative company is known for breaking down the boundaries of wireless video and offering some truly affordable kit. And their latest CineEye 2S Pro SDI/HDMI wireless HD video transmitter and receiver system is no different.
Historically, professional wireless video transmitter systems equipped with SDI were usually priced well beyond the budget of those working on a tight budget. Or alternatively, the cheaper units were often lacking reliability and came with fewer features and high latency.
The CineEye 2S Pro changes all that by offering best-in-class performance and more options than any comparably priced system. The system is very aggressively priced at just $649, bringing cinema grade transmission to everyone.
Send a wireless video signal from any camera!
In addition, the new CineEye 2S Pro builds on the proven success of the Accsoon CineEye 2 Pro by adding HD-SDI connectivity while keeping the same great form factor.
The CineEye 2S Pro transmitter connects to cinema cameras with SDI output, plus mirrorless and video cameras with HDMI output.
Low Latency, High Quality Wireless Transmission for Professional Video
Accsoon’s superior patented Gemini dual channel 5.8GHz and 2.4GHz transmission system reduces interference by intelligently combining video streams on each frequency.
And thanks to this capability, the system forms a single stream with an incredible range of up to 1200 feet / 350m. Furthermore, the system automatically selects the channels that have the least resistance.
The new Accsoon CineEye 2S Pro can send a clean and stable video signal with almost no delay at a maximum resolution of 1080p/60. Furthermore, the unit is rated with extremely low-latency, which is virtually imperceptible at under 60ms.
The transmitter also alters the bitrate and video quality of the outgoing signal for the optimal connection and frame rate – ensuring you are always able to monitor what is happening.
Perfect video tool for the socially distanced set
On the monitoring end it connects to up to four dedicated receivers or mobile devices so that everyone on set from the director to the AC, producer, gaffer, make-up artist, or client can see what the camera sees on their own device.
Furthermore, this makes the CineEye 2S Pro the perfect tool for the new normal of socially distanced filmmaking at every level of production.
Stream Directly to YouTube
However, the Accsoon CineEye 2S Pro has a few more tricks up its sleeve. Users can also configure the Accsoon Go iOS app to live stream the camera feed direct to YouTube and other streaming services for public or private viewing.
This is perfect for letting clients watch a shoot from the comfort of their homes or offices, or simple live streaming of events like weddings and lectures.
All you need to stream in addition to your camera and CineEye 2S Pro is an iPhone or iPad with 4G or 5G data connection running the app (alternatively, a lightning-to-ethernet or USB-C-to-ethernet cable can also be used for internet access from the iOS device).
Turn Your Smartphone or Tablet into a Monitor with LUTs
The Cineeye 2S Pro uses the free Accsoon Go app for iOS and Android to turn almost any modern iOS or Android smart phone or tablet into a fully featured monitor.
The system has advanced features like pinch to zoom, user selectable LUTs, peaking, false color, waveform, histogram and zebra. Furthermore, the interface allows users to rapidly switch between setup menus and a totally clean uncluttered view of the image.
Users can load their own custom LUTs or CDL to preview with on the iOS or Android device screen. Alternatively there are multiple presets for popular camera Log types that can also be selected.
Display masks are also available so users can preview different aspect ratios. Anamorphic lenses are also supported with 1.25x, 1.33x, 1.5x, 1.78x and 2x de-squeeze options.
Power via Sony NP-F batteries
Both the CineEye 2S Pro transmitter and receiver can be powered by Sony style NP-F batteries or via a built-in DC input barrel connection.
For long uninterrupted run times, both power sources can be connected simultaneously to allow for hot-swapping of batteries. The design is also fanless making it perfect for filming in quieter environments.

The Accsoon CineEye 2S Pro will be available from authorized dealers for $649 US.
