Flare 2KSDI (Kit)

The IO Industries Flare 2KSDI is a compact POV-style minicam with a global shutter and 2/3" CMOS sensor resulting in crisp full HD, 2K or Raw footage.  Its small size, light weight and flexible recording modes enable it to fit into a variety of specialist live broadcast and digital cinema applications. Popular uses include aircraft and vehicle-mounted footage, live sports broadcast, goal-line technology and helmet-mounted action.

  • 2K RAW (10-bit) for digital cinema
  • 2K RAW (10-bit) with 4:4:4 (up to 30fps)
  • 4:2:2 interlaced, progressive (YCbCr 10-bit) for live broadcast
  • 4:2:2 up to 1080p60
  • 4:4:4 up to 1080p30
  • 3D via SYNC IN with genlock

This new version (Aug '14) of the Flare 2KSDI improves low light performance with automatic black clamping and removed black sun artifacts.  It no longer supports 720p below 50fps.

Use standard C-mount lenses or purchase the EF Mount Adapter for EF and EF-S lenses, enabling remote adjustment of focus and iris settings.  Configuration and control is done via on-screen display with the included handheld remote or by attaching a RS485 cable for distance.

Kit includes: Flare 2KSDI Camera, Remote Control, PowerTap (D-Tap) Cable with lemo, AC to PowerTap 12v Cable, USB Remote Control Cable (2m).


Record footage (including RAW) using an external field recorder such as the Odyssey family from Convergent Design.
