Product Spotlight: Padcaster

Have you been feeling like your entire life is like the TV show Chopped? You know, that show where you’re given five ingredients that make no sense and you have to make something good out of them? 

Yeah, if you feel like that a lot lately, you’re not alone. 

Say, for example, you’re asked to do a pro-quality video or Zoom meeting. You may not have a decent camera, a portable monitor, a microphone, or even some way to mount things. But you do have an iPad. Good thing it’s a very versatile tool. You can do a lot with an iPad, but it’s not perfect. The camera is too wide-angle for a lot of things, the microphone is really sub-par, and even with a case it’s hard to put it where you want it. Not to mention, it’s no fun if you drop it.

Enter the Padcaster

Solid Signal is proud to present the Padcaster. Padcaster fills in all the gaps in your iPad’s capabilities and gives you the ability to create high-quality streaming video anywhere. 

You get the Padcaster Case, Unidirectional Microphone Kit, Dual Microphone/Headphone Splitter, Multi-function Wide Angle/Macro Lens, Fluid Head Tripod/Monopod, Lens Sticker and Padded Camera Backpack. That’s a lot of stuff, and it’s everything you need!

The case is super-durable and will protect your iPad from accidental drops. You can see from the image above that it’s very tough and yet still gives you access to the buttons and ports you need. You can also see in the image above that the backpack is specially designed to give you a place to put all the accessories you need. 

Padcaster makes you a pro

With the Padcaster, you can put the iPad a decent distance from the person speaking and still have great sound and picture. The included microphone gives clear clean audio, and the lens adapter lets you get close enough to frame the perfect shot. 

This bundle is so good that a lot of our professional broadcasting customers are interested in it. In a lot of cases, it no longer makes sense from a public health perspective to send a news crew. Instead, they just send the Padcaster!

People all over the country are choosing the Padcaster for remote production. Even wonder how all those celebrities create videos from their homes? How the Tiger King aftershow happened? Producers send the hardware to people’s homes, ready to use, and after they’re done recording it’s sent back. 

(I’m not saying that Tiger King‘s producers used the Padcaster, but they could have and they probably should have.)

Choose the right Padcaster for you

Solid Signal carries the entire Padcaster line. Pretty much any iPad made since the iPad Air will work on with one of the choices above. The 9.7″ model is flexible enough to accommodate practically any 9.7″ iPad, and the Mini version will work with any Mini.
