Samson's XPD Series USB Digital Wireless Systems are Perfect for Mobile Filmmakers

If you own an Apple iPhone or iPad, 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 news service, Apple mobile products provide the tools to film, edit and distribute.

While the iPhone and iPad are great at capturing video they have limitations when it comes to recording audio for your videos. The problem with built-in microphones is that they only pick up audio in the direction of the camera. 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 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 XPD Series USB Digital Wireless Systems easily connects to your iPhone or iPad using the Apple Lighting to USB Camera Adapter, making it the first truly mobile wireless solution for iOS devices.

Available in three configurations: X1U Handheld, XPD1 Presentation (lavalier) and XPD1 Headset, the XPD Series systems give you the freedom to directly capture audio close-up, or from a distance, while framing the ideal shot.

You can hit the streets with the X1U Handheld system to conduct interviews without worrying about expensive cameras or cumbersome cables running from your microphone to the iOS device — quickly and easily get the shot you need the first time.

Whether it’s shooting your own student film or home cooking channel, the XPD1 Presentation (lavalier) system provides close, discrete miking with the ability to move freely while capturing the audio.

The XPD1 Headset system is perfect for recording YouTube instruction videos, your own play-by-play at sporting events, and even more animated lectures and fitness presentations.

Regardless of your wireless audio application, Samson's XPD Series has a solution. Simply connect to your iOS device, capture the audio directly from its source and you’re off and running… literally.
