An interview from the 2018 National Association of Broadcasters Convention in Las Vegas with Josh Apter of Padcaster. Padcaster is a patented, rugged multifunctional iPad solution that transforms the iPad into an all-in-one mobile production studio. Padcaster’s expanded product line now includes the Verse, Padcaster Parrot Teleprompter and a complete line of value-added accessories to enable consumers to shoot, edit and upload video on the fly – or stream live right from the iPad or smartphone. In this interview Josh talks with us about the new Padcaster Verse, an elegantly simple, completely modular system that turns any smartphone into a professional mobile video production tool.
The core of the Verse system is the compact Verse Grip that allows the user to securely lock in any smartphone with or without a case. The three built-in cold shoes are ideal for mounting microphones, lights and other accessories. The Verse product line also features the Verse Cage, a military-grade aluminum cage and mount that provides added functionality. The Verse Cage comes equipped with an integrated dual tripod mount that allows the device to attach to a tripod with no additional hardware. The versatility and modularity of the system gives users the option to attach the Verse Grip and smartphone inside the Cage to utilize the 12 standard mounting threads around the Cage to attach additional accessories; or, when not shooting with a smartphone, the Verse Cage can be utilized as a DSLR cage.
For added support and stabilization, the kit includes the 3-in-1 X-Pod. A small yet powerful mini tripod and pistol grip combo, the X-Pod is also a 3200MaH power bank to keep the device charged. Another option for stabilization is the ultra-flexible G-Pod, a ball-style handle grip and tripod with a claw ball head in one.
