    “Video Villages” are a staple on sets, and they’ll continue to be for the the foreseeable future.  The Village is usually set in one location though, what if you need to be mobile?  What if you’re a makeup artist that needs to see the actor but isn’t generally allowed into Video Village?  That’s where this little device comes in.  Everyone on set already has a high resolution wireless video monitor in their pocket.  Their phone!   A signal from the camera is plugged into this device, and it then broadcasts it over 5Ghz wifi to 4 different smartphones or tablets up to 500′ away with very low latency.  All you have to do is download a small app and do a password and you’re in the loop!  Many shoots use this in conjunction with one of our Bolt units: Bolt to Video Village, and then CineEye fed from Video Village as a second tier monitoring loop.

    We’ve had the previous generation CineEye for a while, and it is still a great device, but the 2S is more pro focused.  The big selling point on this newer version is its ability to take professional HD-SDI signals at up to 1080 60P, in addition to HDMI like the first generation.  While the first one had a built-in rechargeable battery, the 2S has a power input that can be fed by the included Dtap cable so you can power it off a big camera.  If you’re using a smaller rig, it can also be powered off a detachable standard Sony FP970 style battery.  A built-in OLED display keeps you informed about operating parameters such as signal format, Wifi channel, etc.  Accsoon promises that you’ll be able to start/stop recording on compatible cameras using the monitoring app and by hooking up an included USB cable between the S2 and camera.

    FP970 batteries are $10/each with free charger
