Abel Code: VEO4K
Mfr. Code: VRI-VEO4K-PL-72G-C
Capture 4K up to 1000 fps with a Phantom VEO4K-PL 990S at 4096x2160. Ideal for gimbal, aerial work, or car chases, the camera features CFast support @90MB/sec speed, 10Gb Ethernet, up to 12-stops, 72GB, OLPF, and a 12-bit CMOS sensor in a black housing.
Key Highlights
  • 3G HD-SDI / HDMI output
  • Ideal for gimbal, aerial, car chases
  • PL Mount


The Phantom VEO4K-PL Camera from VRI incorporates the same features and functions as the VEO-S camera models and the same image and frame rate performance as your Flex4K-GS camera. The VEO4K-PL captures 4K up to 1000 fps at 4096 x 2160 resolution with 3G HD-SDI and HDI outputs, plus programmable I/O. It includes the necessary features for media production and offers accessories so you can customize your camera configuration and out options.

VEO4K cameras employ a custom 9.4-megapixel, 12-bit CMOS sensor with 6.75 micron pixels, producing images of the highest quality and pixel resolution. The sensor can operate in global shutter (standard) or rolling shutter mode for increased dynamic range and to eliminate the need for black references. 

This S-Model (as opposed to the L-model for motion analysis work) offers additional signal availability, on-camera controls, rugged connectors and compatibility with removable CFast 2.0 storage media. 

It comes standard with a PL Mount as default. This particular unit in the VEO4K family is tailored for media production applications so the manufacturer has differentiated the housing to make it black. Other members of the family, such as the optional VEO4K-990S or the L-model, include a white housing. The chassis is machined from solid aluminum with isolated electronics. Phantom VEO cameras are known for their durability and ability to perform in harsh environments.

The VEO4K-PL features CFast support @ 90MB/sec speed, 10Gb Ethernet on camera, and a 12-bit CMOS sensor that supports both global shutter and rolling shutter modes. The VEO4K-PL camera includes an OLPF. With the 10Gb Ethernet you can potentially download an entire 72GB of data in as little as two minutes.

Add a Cameo VEOBob Breakout Box for Phantom VEO for additional output options to match your Flex4K-GS functionality.

You can achieve up to 12-stops dynamic range with the Base ISO 320 (color) in Rolling Shutter Mode within the exposure index range of EI 800-1000. With Global Shutter Mode you can achieve up to 9-stops dynamic range with the Base ISO 640 (color) within the exposure index range of EI 800-1000. You can set the EI range with either on-camera controls or PCC software. Manufacturer states that higher EI settings are possible with additional image processing. Of course, the ISO and dynamic range will change based upon the shutter mode camera control and file formats.

On-Camera Controls (OCC)

Employ the On-Camera Controls (OCC) when connected to an SDI or HDMI monitor or viewfinder. The OCC menu allows for setup, capture, playback, and saving to a CFast card.

File Formats

The native file format is Cine RAW, which can be easily converted to other formats including h.264 mp4, Apple ProRes .mov and many more using PCC. Cine RAW files are also directly compatible with several major video editing and motion analysis programs.

CFast Workflow

Remote and untethered recording occurs with CFast 2.0 cards. Cine files are first recorded to RAM, then played back immediately, trimmed, and saved to your CFast card. Once the file is recorded to your card, the file is safely stored and you are free to capture your next shot.

Transfer speed from RAM is 90 MB/second

Use your standard CFast 2.0 cards, which are formatted with the NTFS file system

Drag-and-drop saved files using standard CFast 2.0 card readers on Windows or Mac operating systems.

Software & Multi-Cine

Windows-based PCC is used for complete setup, control, image processing, and download. Mac-based Séance software from Glue Tools [GT-SEANCEMAC-1SEAT] is available for control, playback, and file download on your Mac. Cameras are connected on a dedicated Ethernet network.

In addition, you can use multi-cine to segment the memory for fast, uninterrupted capture of short events. Partition internal RAM, into up-to 63 segments to capture quick recordings back-to-back. The VEO4K-PL supports Seamless-Cine-Switching to ensure no frames are missed. RAM is available up-to 72GB.


You can either add an optional side-mounted battery plate with batteries or you can pull power with an XLR adapter cable (for 12V and 24V batteries).


Gb Ethernet and optional 10Gb Ethernet is featured on all VEO4K models, for control and download. Both protocols use same Ethernet port and auto-negotiate the connection based on network configuration.
