PADCASTER PRODUCT TOUR from Manhattan Edit Workshop on Vimeo.Q: So, what exactly is The Padcaster? A: The Padcaster is a rugged iPad case turned mobile production studio that transforms your Apple tablet into an all-in-one moviemaking machine. This sturdy, customizable case lets videographers attach lights, mics and other filmmaking accessories and enhancements to the iPad.

A: When I saw that you could shoot HD video, edit it and upload it to almost anywhere (YouTube, Vimeo, CNN ireport, FTP) all on the iPad. It was faster than anything I’d ever seen and something literally clicked. It turned out to be a hernia, but while I was in surgery, I got the idea for the Padcaster. (OK, not that last part.)

Everyone today has a smart phone and simple access to upload their videos to websites and social media channels. But skilled video professionals with higher end equipment still reign supreme when it comes to quality. And with the growing need for live video, there are more opportunities and money on the table.
With marketing professionals and companies often strapped for budgets and having many places to spend their precious advertising dollars, sometimes video production budgets suffer, but the quality - and your profit margins - need not plummet as a result. Companies looking to produce one isolated video and offering a small budget rarely leave much room for creativity or profit, but when a company wants to create a series of videos simultaneously, careful collaboration and creativity can lead to great results both for the client and for the production company’s bottom line. Sharing the workload in pre-production, maximizing the shoot time during production, and spreading out costs across videos in post-production can lead to low per-video costs for bulk projects without sacrificing quality or profit.
