The Accsoon CineView HE Wireless Video Transmitter & Receiver Kit is an affordable HHDMI wireless system with a claimed range of 1200′ / 365.76m.

The CineView HE Wireless Video Transmitter & Receiver Kit from Accsoon includes a transmitter and receiver, which allows you to send up to 1080 60p video to the included receiver as well as simultaneously up to three additional receivers or smartphones and tablets.

The transmitter and receiver provide multiple power options, including a DC barrel input, an L-series battery plate, and a USB Type-C input. Due to its low-power, fanless design, an NP-970 battery can provide up to 12 hours of runtime for each unit. Dual-channel transmission makes the CineEye 2S Pro highly resistant to outside interference and ensures that a strong, high-quality signal will be delivered over the 1200′ line-of-sight distance.

The affordable wireless video space is getting crowded
Over the last few years, we have seen countless affordable wireless video systems flooding the market.

Accsoon was arguably the first company to bring affordable wireless monitoring to the market. The original CineEye was a big hit with budget filmmakers as it allowed you to stream an HDMI signal directly to smartphones and tablets through Wi-fi. At $249 USD it was arguably the first budget-friendly way of viewing wireless video on multiple devices. Above you can see our video report from NAB 2019.

Since that time Accsoon has released a lot of different wireless video systems with different functionality at different price points. I have reviewed quite a few of them and they have generally performed well compared to the competition.

Accsoon does now face very stiff competition from a wide array of affordable wireless video systems that have come to market from various manufacturers.

What it is and what it isn’t
The CineView HE Wireless Video Transmitter & Receiver Kit, like all of the 2.4GHz and 5GHz systems that are out there on the market, shouldn’t be compared with more expensive systems that send uncompressed video. All of these affordable options that don’t send uncompressed video are going to have some level of latency.

You need to be very aware that this is not intended to be a replacement for a close to zero latency system. Any wireless video system that utilizes 2.4GHz or 5GHz is compressing the image signal and you will always get some delay. I wouldn’t recommend any of these systems if you want to use them to pull focus off a transmitted image.

The CineView HE Wireless Video Transmitter & Receiver Kit is much more suitable as an easy way of letting multiple people monitor images without needing to give everyone monitors or RX units.

Size & Design
The CineView HE Wireless Video Transmitter & Receiver both weigh 200 g / 7.05 oz (including the antennas). This makes them slightly lighter than both the CineEye 2S and CineEye 2 that weigh 213 g / 7.5 oz.
The weight and footprint, especially if you are using the TX with a Sony NP battery, do make the CineView HE feel quite big on small-sized mirrorless hybrid cameras, however, just about every other competing product on the market features a similar size and form factor.
Build Quality
The CineView HE Wireless Video Transmitter & Receiver are both robustly made. They feel very solid and a lot of that has to do with the hard metal enclosure.
What is a little strange is that both the HDMI In and HDMI Out are located on the right-hand side of the TX and RX. All of the Hybrid mirrorless cameras and cameras such as the Canon C70 have their HDMI outputs on the left-hand side of the camera. Depending on how you mount the CineView HE TX this could be an issue as you need to run the HDMI cable from your camera around the back of the transmitter.
Dual-Band Transmission
The new Accsoon CineView HE operates on Dual Band 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies. The way this works is that the transmitter sends the same image twice using 2.4 GHz and 5GHz frequencies, and the receiver then combines the two streams as needed to create a complete single stream. Because CineView HE utilizes Dual Band frequencies at the same time it is claimed to be inherently more stable than its rivals.

The CineView HE can send up to 1080p60 over Dual-Band (2.4 GHz + 5 GHz). Accsoon claims that this wireless transmission technology means you never have to worry about video or audio drop or switch signal issues again. This is a very bold claim as I have used and reviewed countless similar systems and they all drop out. I will test this claim further down in the review.

The CineView HE is also claimed to be able to transmit images and audio smoothly over a long distance, even the size of a football pitch, with a latency of less than 60 ms.

At power on, the CineView HE will automatically select the best channel for audio and video transmission.

One transmitter can stream to up to four iOS or Android devices. You can use a combination of Android or iOS devices, as long as you aren’t using any more than four.

The CineEye 2S uses HEVC compression and as I have already mentioned, it can send video signals up to 1080 60p.
