ISTE 2017: Is Turning Students Into Film Makers With Their iPad, Padcaster Studios
They’re not a startup, but Padcaster is pretty awesome. The company is a regular at ISTE and several other big shows. They’ve created a variety of products that harness the power of the iPad and turn it into a device that can easily create professional videos.
“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. The Company is creating, developing and enabling a new category of convenient and cost-effective professional quality video documentation and production.” the company says on their website.
For the videographer of any level, Padcaster.com also offers a variety of other products like microphones and green screens essentially becoming a one stop shop for those looking to shoot professional videos with their iPads.
Padcaster is being used in hundreds of schools and districts across the globe. Their innovative solutions allow schools to set up tv/video studios and the ability to turn students into news reporters and videographers without the huge expenditure in equipment. For example their Podcaster Unlimited Studio includes everything you need to shoot a professional video in a studio or on location for just $1239.89.
Stony Brook University was able to replace $100,000 satellite truck with Padcaster. ‘“With mics, lights, Skype and The Padcaster bringing it all together, we were able to transmit from the scene right into our control room.” a school spokesperson said.
Implementing Padcaster into a school’s already existing AV equipment is easy, and cost effective. The company is also offering discounts around the ISTE conference.
