XPD2 with iPhone outdoors

If you own an iPhone, iPad or an Android phone or tablet you have a complete video studio in the palm of your hands. Whether you want to produce the next blockbuster film, create a YouTube channel, or become the next streaming sensation, your mobile device has all the tools and power to film, edit and distribute.

While smartphones and tablets are great at capturing video they have limitations when it comes to capturing high-quality audio. The problem with built-in microphones is that they only pick up audio in the direction  the camera is facing. If the device turns, the microphone moves. This can cause unwanted changes in your audio levels. The sensitivity of your mobile device’s internal microphone is typically very low, leaving you with limited recording distance before the phone or tablet’s self-noise (self-noise is sound you hear, typically a hiss, even when no audio is being recorded) or external noises become too loud to make the audio useful. Microphones that plug directly into the phone or tablet cure some of these issues, but also share the limitations of internal microphones — directionality and range.

The Samson XPD2 Series USB Digital Wireless Systems easily connects to your iPhone or iPad using the Apple Lighting to USB Camera Adapter, making it a truly mobile wireless solution for iOS devices.

XPD2 also plays great with Android devices. Simply connect the receiver to your unit and launch any application that accepts an external USB audio device.
