Overview

Featured in Apple’s “Your Verse” international advertising campaign for the original iPad Air, as well as the iPad Air 2 “Change” campaign, and Visa’s “Visa Checkout” campaign, The Padcaster is a patented, rugged multifunctional iPad case that transforms the iPad into an all-in-one mobile production studio.

The Padcaster enables consumers to shoot, edit and upload video on the fly – or stream live right from the iPad. More than an innovative way to mount an iPad to a tripod, The Padcaster transforms the iPad into an all-in-one production tool.

Stabilization

Padcaster’s steel-reinforced 1/4-20 thread connects to any standard tripod or monopod, giving you the stability and confidence to capture the perfect shot.

Audio

Record professional audio with a variety of options. Padcaster’s unidirectional microphone ensures your subject can be heard above the crowd. The dual microphone and headphone jack connects easily and securely so you can monitor your recordings live. Want a wireless lavaliere or hand-held microphone?  Already have your own? No Problem! Padcaster works with hundreds of microphones and iOS audio interfaces.

Lighting

Attach various lighting solutions directly to the frame to improve video quality.  Padcaster’s LED is a variable brightness LED with a huge throw in a tiny package. With an included cold shoe adapter, you can attach almost any light anywhere on the Padcaster.

Optics

Every Padcaster includes a laser-cut steel lens bracket with a 72mm lens thread and a 72-58mm step-down ring. Our lens bracket accepts a variety of wide and telephoto options and Padcaster’s .45 wide-angle lens is also included to get you started.

Options

With 24 threaded holes around its frame, there is always room to attach your favorite accessories to the Padcaster, or to mount the Padcaster just about anywhere! We’ve seen our product mounted on cars, off the side of a Mardi Gras float, used as a teleprompter and even to assist the disabled as a wheelchair mounted mobile solution.

Access

Our urethane insert holds the iPad securely while providing easy reach to volume controls, power button, headphone jack and lightning port. Milled through-holes in Padcaster’s rugged aluminum frame are large enough to fit most professional gauge cables and provide a secure barrier to protect against loose connections.

Durablity

A rugged, commercial grade aluminum frame and flexible urethane insert make Padcaster both lightweight and extremely resilient. Once you have securely installed your iPad, you can focus your attention on creating video that inspires.
