The Accsoon SeeMo Pro SDI ($349 USD) that I recently reviewed on the site is now shipping. Additionally, you can now use the SeeMo HDMI or SeeMo Pro SDI to view the output of the Blackmagic Design ATEM Mini inside the DirectorMonitor iOS app. This means your iPad or iPhone can now be used to completely touch control and view an ATEM Mini without the need for any extra monitors, just the SeeMo Pro.

If you are not familiar with the Accsoon SeeMo Pro SDI, it transforms any recent iPad or iPhone into a professional HD monitor and image computing platform. The SeeMo Pro offers SDI input and pass-thru, plus HDMI input, allowing it to be used with a wide array of digital cinema and mirrorless hybrid cameras. When combined with iOS devices the SeeMo Pro image can rival pro monitors that cost much more.

The ATEM Mini MultiView, Program / Preview out, or any of the ATEM’s video inputs is displayed alongside the DirectorMonitor app’s iPad/iPhone touchscreen controls in the app interface. To live stream you no longer needs any additional monitors, just the ATEM Mini, SeeMo, cameras, and an iPad or iPhone. This solution is portable, cost-effective, and easy to power using batteries. It is so portable that it can even be used to create a simple multiview monitoring setup for on-set use. You can also add Accsoon’s PowerCage II and CineView wireless video transmitters to complete the setup.
