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.

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.
