Increase the quality of Facebook Live Broadcasts with Padcaster
The easiest way to stream live to Facebook is with your phone or iPad. Plus, these are the devices you’re most comfortable with. Padcaster enhances the video and audio quality of your devices through a number of filmmaking accessories, allowing you to produce a professional Facebook Live broadcast.
Padcaster provides a range of microphones including lavalier, unidirectional and stick mics, that ensure you always capture quality sound. Beyond just improving your sound, Padcaster offers a number of other filmmaking tools including tripods, lenses, lighting and more.
If your event requires a speaker to give an address, Padcaster has a mini teleprompter that runs off a smartphone, so there is no need to memorize lines or look down at a script. The Padcaster Parrot Teleprompter is complete with a wireless Bluetooth remote, so the speaker can operate the teleprompter while connecting with their live audience.
If you’re doing a multicam Facebook Live broadcast, Padcaster can help with that as well. Simply download Teradek’s Live:Air application and connect up to four mobile devices, as long as they’re on the same WiFi network.
- Livestream content to anywhere in the world
- Broadcast both publicly and privately
