With great processing power come great recording resolutions. While the
original Insta360 Pro topped out at 30 fps at 8K in 2D and 6K in 3D, the
Insta360 Pro2 ups the quality with 8K resolution in both 3D and 2D, with
3D up to 30 fps and 2D up to 60 fps. The maximum recording bit-rate has
also been improved. The Insta360 Pro2 can encode video up to 120Mbps per
camera unit, where the preceding unit was limited to 40Mbps per camera
unit. Additionally, while streaming, 8K recordings can be made
concurrently. Previously, the Insta360 Pro was limited to 4K resolution
recording while streaming. The already powerful built-in stabilization
has been improved with the "FlowState" technology, and can be
implemented in 3D recordings, by way of a 9-axis gyroscope that analyzes
camera movement for compensation during stitching.

Wireless connectivity has been expanded on the Insta360 Pro2. Using the
built-in Wi-Fi connection, the Insta 360 Pro2 can be controlled from a
smartphone or tablet from up to 60' away. Up to 15' away, a 30-fps live
preview can be monitored using the control app. For aerial enthusiasts
and content producers who require more distance, the Insta360 Pro2 is
compatible with the Farsight wirelss video transmission system. With
Farsight, you can monitor and control the Insta360 Pro2 from almost two
miles away using your smart device, PC, or Mac, connected to the
Farsight receiver. The Insta360 Pro2 is also available in a kit with the
Farsight system.

With the debut of the Insta360 Pro2, 360 video enthusiasts have a lot to
look forward to. 8K recording in 3D and 2D is exciting, improved
stabilization and wireless connectivity are welcome advancements, as
well. The Insta360 Pro2 will be available soon, so be sure to check back
