Accsoon CineEye HDMI – Transmit FullHD via Wifi to up to 4 Devices

April 9th, 2019

The Accsoon CineEye is a new WiFi HDMI transmitter, able to send video signal at up to 1080p 60fps to a maximum distance of 100m. During NAB, we have talked about this new product with Neil Zhang from Accsoon.

Accsoon is a Chinese startup company producing camera accessories. In their portfolio, they already have a one-handed gimbal A1-PRO with a CineEye wireless image transmission technology. Now at NAB 2019, they are presenting a standalone HDMI image transmitter called CineEye.

Accsoon CineEye HDMI Transmitter

The CineEye transmitter is capable of sending a video signal at up to full HD 1080p resolution and 60fps frame rate. The transmitter features one HDMI-in port and uses 5G WiFi signal to send video wirelessly to a tablet or phone with both, Android or iOS system.

When it comes to the range of the transmitter, its signal can go for as far as 100m (328ft) in unobstructed environment without interference. Inside a building and at places with strong interference that will of course be less.

CineEye

CineEye has a very low delay given it is a WiFi transmission. Accsoon claims the latency is 60ms (for iOS). The system supports bandwidth up to 300MB/s and one transmitter can send a signal to up to four devices at the same time, regardless of the OS – Android or iOS.

The CineEye module features compact aluminum housing with two foldable antennas. Once folded, it’s only the size of a credit card (90x63x21mm). The company also worked on optimizing heat generation. They claim that even after hours of transmission, the CineEye transmitter still won’t exceed the human body temperature.

There is a built-in battery within the transmitter, which currently lasts for around three hours of runtime. The company wants to improve that to 4 hours, when the final version of the product will be released. The module charges through a USB Type-C port (5V 1.5A power input) and it also works when it’s being charged, so it can serve well on long shoots too.

Accsoon App for iOS and Android

To receive the video signal from the CineEye transmitter, Accsoon has developed an app, which can be downloaded for free on Google Play (for Android) and in the App store (for iOS). The Accsoon app has a variety of useful functions for image monitoring.

There is focus peaking (available in three colors – green, blue, and white), false color, histogram, zebra, and markers (different aspect ratios, safe zones, grid, center marker), monochrome (red, blue, or green only). Users can also select various 3D LUTs included in the app, plus there is the possibility to add custom LUTs (via cube files).

CineEye

CineEye transmission system will automatically find a clean channel before the transmission starts, and as the distance increases it will automatically lower the streaming bitrate to maintain real-time monitoring. Users can also manually change the Wifi channel directly in the app, in case there is an interference (there are 9 selectable 5G channels).

Pricing and Availability

The price for the transmitter is $219 USD and it is now available for purchasing at Amazon and CVP.

What do you think of the Accsoon CineEye HDMI transmitter? Would you add a device like this to your kit? Let us know in the comments underneath the article.

They will crush it with this device. (In a great way) It’s what indy shooters in the industry have needed for a very long time. And that price!!!!! AWESOME. Complete no brainer. Stop talking and take my money.

can the app accept multiple camera cineye units. So one of these on each camera so the director can monitor all angles. would buy 3 if thats the case

it’s based on wifi, so i think if you change to wifi connection to the angle you want, you switches viewing the angle, so i think yes. (it’s also mentioned above you can change the name/password of the wifi to distinguish them, but i imagine having to go into the system menu to change wifi connection wont be a nice experience.)

Ah great to finally see something like this for an affordable price, I really like the form factor too.

Does it take 4k signal in?

 Adam Werton

no, they made a unit that can accept 4k input back at BIRTV 2018 August and abandoned that design because that feature will make the unit much bigger and much more power hungry.

It takes the 4K signal from Camera, but the image displayed on your tablet or phone will be 108O 60fps

If they keep to that price when released in USA, I’ll be purchasing.

From what i’ve seen they only sold a very small amount of demo units in china and havent started publicly selling them, but judging by the fact that even amazon sells their gimbals, it wont be too long before this starts selling internationally.

Poor man’s ServPro. The Teradek ServPro is certainly expensive. But, their VUE software is absolutely excellent, and will be difficult to beat, I’m sure. Glad to see them getting some competition on the low end of the product lineup. Feel the heat, Teradek!

Thanks Cinema5D!! – Great video!! Don’t know about performance for focus pulling, but the Accsoon CineEye stability will be much better (“5G” reportedly, plus much more modern wireless HDMI components), latency will be less and the other features will blow the Nyrius Pro and Prime price point and performance out of the water. Accsoon website claims low latency (sub 200ms on Android, sub 180ms iOS, sub 80ms wired HDMI – but that’s “marketing” spec’s for now…), and as this demo was at a trade show with impossibly high levels of radio noise, the signal looked incredibly solid. After this model, the Hollyland Mars 300 is the next best for performance and price in our opinion (accept Mars 300 can’t display on 4 x devices at same time like the CineEye can, only 1 to 1 which is often enough). May test them on our 20ft, 30ft and 40ft carbon fibre aerial imaging masts and see the results. Need to see solid specifications and real world test – but looks amazing for now! Well done Accsoon!

What about audio, is there any kind of latency?

Just received mine yesterday. It does not stream audio unfortunately. The latency is very good and the range is pretty amazing. I’ve used the teradek clip many times and was always frustrated with the range, dropouts, connection and quality.

Interesting but the 4hours battery is too limiting for me
Is there a way to power this via a DC to Usb-C cable ? I have a DC out on my fotga monitor I could use
