Monitor. Stream. Share. Marry your camera to iPhone or iPad with the new Accsoon SeeMo HDMI adapter
The world’s first affordable professional HDMI adapter and video capture terminal for iOS connects via Lightning or USB-C
It’s no secret that iPhones and iPads have the best small screens in the business, far superior to those found on regular on-camera video monitors. Now, thanks to SeeMo from Accsoon, you can finally connect your camera or other FHD HDMI source to your iPhone or iPad and use it as a high grade daylight viewable monitor. Better still, by using the free Accsoon SEE iOS app it has all the functions a professional demands at your fingertips.
The best monitor right in your pocket
SeeMo is perfect for the filmmaker on the go. If you want the smallest, lightest monitor setup that works equally well with handheld cameras, gimbals or in your creator studio, then this is it.
Snap your iPhone into the SeeMo and it is transformed in seconds – there’s no need to carry around an extra monitor any more. The SeeMo is a small box measuring 50mm x 39mm x 80mm that’s attached via a built-in clamp which accommodates all recent iPhones. Connect your iPhone to SeeMo using the included right angle Lightning to USB-C cable, and your camera to SeeMo using a HDMI cable. It’s that straightforward. SeeMo is MFi-certified for guaranteed operation.
A pro grade monitor for anyone, any time
Now iPhone users no longer need to fear out of focus, poorly composed and poorly exposed shoots when using their mirrorless camera or DSLR to shoot video.
To precisely check focus simply tap the iPhone screen and you can instantly magnify the image. Another tap and you can bring up waveforms or zebras to judge exposure – removing the lingering worry that something wasn’t quite set right.
Flip your iPhone around and it’s the easy way to keep yourself perfectly framed while vlogging. Want to fine tune your composition? Simply pull up a grid overlay to help line things up and keep horizons level.
Furthermore, users can apply custom LUTs, or use the onion skin image overlay to precisely line up their shots. There are even options to de-squeeze anamorphic video on-screen, or flip video to aid self shooting.
More than a monitor
But SeeMo offers so much more than just monitoring. Imagine a device that lets you stream and share video from your camera as easily as if it were shot on the iPhone’s built-in cameras. SeeMo does just that…
Livestream from anywhere, anytime
The free SeeMo app can stream HD video direct to popular streaming platforms like YouTube from your camera, mixer or other HDMI source. All this without the need for a cumbersome laptop, right from wherever you are. Use it to livestream your travels, gym classes, university lectures, parties or weddings from your camera in HD quality. Setup is simple and the SeeMo uses either the iOS device’s cellular or Wi-Fi connection to stream at up to 1080P 60fps.
Record on your phone for instant sharing
The SeeMo can also record a H.264 HD video direct from your camera to your iPhone or iPad’s camera roll. Optimised for size and convenience, these files are 30Mbps variable bitrate in 8-bit. This makes instant sharing of clips for social media from your camera much easier. You can also use these as a backup to your main footage on your camera, or even use them to edit videos when time is of the essence.
Run for hours on a single battery
SeeMo is incredibly power efficient and runs off rechargeable Sony NP-F type batteries that are widely available. Once attached, a single battery can last a full day of shooting. A useful 5V USB-C output port on the side of the SeeMo allows the powering of devices like microphones and small on-camera lights, or can even act as an emergency power bank for your iOS device with the correct cable.
The latest screen technology
Adding a SeeMo and utilizing the stunning Retina display on the phone gives you a clear, bright view of what your camera is seeing, all with a screen that is larger and far higher resolution than the in-built camera screen. The color reproduction, brightness and resolution of iPhones and iPads is always first class. Images are crisper and cleaner, with super high pixel density where the eye can no longer detect individual pixels. Unlike regular monitors iPhones and iPads benefit from the very latest screen technology and improve yearly.
On your iPad too
Need a larger monitor? Connect a recent iPad or iPad Pro to the SeeMo using the upcoming new Accsoon power cage for SeeMo and you have built a pro-grade director’s monitor with all the same great app tools.
A new class of product with all new technology
Accsoon’s engineers have been working hard to make SeeMo a reality – no small task as it uses all new hardware with a dedicated app that had to be built from the ground up. The result is a cutting edge HDMI adapter for iOS that connects via Lightning or USB-C cable, with a new industrial design that is modern and elegant with rounded edges.
The SeeMo unit is actually two parts – the HDMI adapter and a clamp/mount plate. The HDMI adapter section can also be used without the clamp on devices such as an iPad
Price and availability
SeeMo costs $179 US and will be available to buy from authorized Accsoon dealers this October.
