Mobile Camera Equipment from Padcaster for Livestreaming and Virtual Events
The best camera for livestreaming is the camera you already have. Padcaster builds upon the high-quality cameras on phones and iPads to give you everything you need to execute livestreams that look and sound great, such as microphones, tripods, lenses and more. Easy to assemble, all of the Padcaster components and packages fit into a backpack.
If your event requires a speaker to give an address, Padcaster even offers a mini teleprompter that runs off of a smartphone, so there is no need for the speaker to memorize lines or look down at their script. The Padcaster Parrot Teleprompter is complete with a wireless Bluetooth remote, so you can operate the teleprompter yourself while connecting with your audience.
The Padcaster Producer App, exclusively available in the Apple App Store, completes your mobile production suite with a downloadable app.
Live video is more important now than ever, and Padcaster ensures that any event, big or small, can run smoothly. More affordable than traditional camera equipment, Padcaster is simple to set up and even simpler to operate. Padcaster equipment makes it easy for you to livestream, so that you can enjoy your event.

Frequently Asked Questions
We know you have them.
Is there a limit to the number of people who can attend my virtual event?
Given that different software solutions have different limitations, the Padcaster support team is here to help you find the software solution that is right for your event and your audience size.
I need help converting my event from an in-person to virtual. Do you help with logistics or can you refer me to someone who does?
The Padcaster Support Team can certainly help. We also have a number of case studies and articles you might find helpful.
Will Padcaster work with my internal team meetings too, while I plan my virtual event?
Absolutely. Padcaster can be used for all types of video communication.
Have other event producers used Padcaster for their events? Can I get a testimonial or reference from them?
We have a number of case studies on our blog. If you would like to be connected to a more specific reference, please reach out.

Yes. If you have privacy concerns for a more intimate event, the Padcaster support team is here to help make sure that your event is only seen by those invited.
Will I be able to re-watch the event after it happens?
