Accsoon has been expanding its lineup of wireless video devices, and the new CineEye 2S Pro adds SDI and HDMI 1080p up to 60fps to the new version with a stated range of 1200 feet. CineEye is known for giving features at an affordable price, and the new 2S Pro fits right in at a retail price of $649. Check out Matt’s review of the CineEye 2 Pro as it is very similar.
The CineEye 2S Pro is basically the CineEye 2 Pro but with HD-SDI connectivity. The form factor is the same, making it a great option for people with both types of connectors.
Accsoon’s patented Gemini dual-channel 5.8Ghz and 2.4Ghz transmission system reduces interference by combining video streams on each frequency to form a single stream with an impressive range of up to 1200 feet or 350m. The system automatically selects the channels that have the least resistance with low latency under 60ms.
The transmitter alters the bitrate and video quality of the outgoing signal for the optimal connection and frame rate.
For monitoring, it connects up to four dedicated receivers or mobile devices.

Stream directly to the Web
With the Accsoon Go iOS app, you can set it up to live stream the camera feed directly to YouTube and other streaming services. This is an interesting option as you can set the stream to private so clients can see the camera live on the web or go live for events such as a wedding or lecture.
All you need to stream in addition to your camera and CineEye 2S Pro is an iPhone or iPad with a 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.
Use a Smart Device as a Monitor with LUTs
With the free Accsoon Go app for iOS and Android, you can use almost any modern iOS or Android phone or tablet as a fully-featured monitor.
- pinch to zoom
- user-selectable LUTs
- false color
The interface allows users to rapidly switch between setup menus and a clean, uncluttered image view.
Users can load their own custom LUTs or CDL to preview on the iOS or Android device screen.
There are also multiple presets for popular camera Log types as well. Users can display masks so that different aspect ratios can be previewed. There is also support for anamorphic lenses with 1.25x, 1.33x, 1.5x, 1.78x, and 2x de-squeeze options.
Powering The CineEye 2S Pro
Both the CineEye 2S Pro transmitter and receiver can be powered by Sony NP-F type batteries or with a built-in DC input barrel connection giving you the option to power off the camera’s battery. For long uninterrupted run times, both power sources can be connected simultaneously to allow for hot-swapping of batteries. Nobody likes fans in their devices, and the CineEye 2S Pro is fanless, making it nice and quiet.
CineEyes 2S Pro is priced very competitively at $649. The HDMI only CineEyes 2 Pro retails for $599.00. This makes the SDI model somewhat of a no-brainer if you ever need the SDI option and added features.
