Accsoon announced the SeeMo Pro SDI, a monitoring/recording/streaming adapter for iOS devices. SeeMo Pro SDI turns the latest iPads and iPhones into professional HD monitors and image computing platforms. Designed for professionals, the SeeMo Pro features an HDMI input in addition to SDI input and passthrough for use with a wide range of cinema and mirrorless cameras. Combined with the screen of an iOS device, the capabilities of SeeMo Pro images are said to be comparable to professional monitors.
SeeMo Pro SDI is a professional MFi certified SDI and HDMI adapter that serves as a video capture port for iOS connecting via Lightning or USB-C. Low latency and high quality images (up to 1080/60P) are comparable to camera manufacturer’s built-in Wi-Fi monitoring solutions. A complete set of professional tools including waveform, magnification, vectorscope, false color, peaking, audio level meter and more. Users can apply custom LUTs or use onion-skinned image overlays to line up shots precisely. There are also options to de-squeeze the anamorphic video on screen, along with a self-monitoring function.
The SeeMo Pro SDI can stream HD video directly from the camera to streaming platforms like YouTube as well as monitoring. Using wifi or cellular data, this eliminates the need of extra gear, like a laptop or extra drives.
This can also record H.264 HD video directly from cameras to an iPhone or iPad’s camera roll. This makes it easy to share clips for social media instantly from a normal camera. It can also be used as a backup of the camera’s main video, or used for video editing when there is no time.
SeeMo Pro SDI is powered by a Sony NP-F type battery or a professional 2-pin DC connector. By using these together, a continuous power supply solution that can replace the battery without turning off the power is realized. The SeeMo Pro SDI can also trickle charge your iPhone or iPad while in use.
The SEE app is built on iOS, allowing for easy updates not possible with other monitors. Accsoon continuously improves, updates and adds features to SeeMo Pro SDI and SeeMo HDMI through app updates.
DirectorMonitor Control for ATEM Mini Adds SeeMo for iOS Monitoring
Accsoon introduces a new third-party iOS app that provides groundbreaking functionality for the ever-expanding SeeMo HDMI and SeeMo Pro SDI ecosystem.
