Accsoon has announced a new wireless video transmission system. The CineView HE is an entry-level system aimed at creators, podcasters and live streamers. However, it may also work for film makers looking for a low-cost video transmission system.

Dual band

The Accsoon CineView HE is a dual band wireless camera transmitter and receiver kit. The CineView HE uses Accsoon’s unique patented Dual-Band (2.4GHx and 5GHz) transmission technology. This gives it a transmission range of up to 1200 feet and a latency of only 60 milliseconds. At power on, CineView HE will automatically select the best channel for audio and video transmission.

Transmitter

The CineView HE transmitter has one HDMI in to connect to your camera. It also has an HDMI loop-out so you can still use an on-camera monitor. Accsoon claims the HDMI loop-out has been upgraded to zero-latency lossless output.

Receiver

The CineView HE receiver has one HDMI out to connect to a monitor. It also has a USB Video Class (UVC) output. This means you can use a USB-C cable to connect the receiver to any third-party streaming platform on your computer for live streaming.

Monitoring options

The CineView HE can send HD video and high-quality audio to up to four devices including its own receiver, mobile phones, and iPads. It can even send to a MacBook with the newest M1 chip. You can mix and match which monitoring solutions you choose to use.

Power

You can power the CineView HE via a DC port (7.4V-16.8V) or with an NP-F battery. Accsoon state that an NP-F970 battery will give you 12 hours of power. In addition, you can power CineView HE with a USB-C interface as long as it is at least 5V/2A. The transmitter and receiver are both fanless so you don’t have to worry about fan noise affecting your audio.

Accsoon Go app

With the Accsoon Go app you can use your mobile phone or tablet for wireless remote monitoring. The app also adds features such as false color, focus assist, zebra and wave form. In addition, it has an onion skin overlay feature. This means you can overlay an image on top of your monitor’s live view.

The Accsoon CineView HE will be available later this month and retails at $499.
