With the recent launch of Live Streaming Apps for iPhone and Android Mobile Phones you have to ask yourself
“Is my company taking full advantage of this new marketing opportunity?”
Today more and more mobile users are using apps like MeerKat and Periscope to reach thousand of new fans via mobile broadcasting live video across social networks like MeerKastTV and #Katch
Now you may say this is not new. People have been posting videos on Youtube and Facebook for years and you would be right. But you would be comparing a rotary phone to a smartphone.
Both do similar things but one is way more advanced and thereby offers more opportunity to reach more customers.
We have also been able to Stream video for sometime now with programs like Ustream and LiveStream. These are great programs for broadcasting events and structured Live productions as they offer the ability to switch from camera to camera but these programs are not free.
Today anyone with a smartphone anywhere they have a good signal can instantly broadcast live right from the phone in their hand. They can grow their social footprint instantly by answering questions shared by views directly within the app.
Why is this a big change?
Imagine you have a new product and would like to show it using these apps and take and answer questions about the product instantly while sharing a Buy Now link in the live chat.
This is and will be the future of distance learning. Imagine riding Live in a NASCAR while you are at the race or watching the grand kids baseball game on your phone or SmartTV. With the ability to create private programs the opportunity to run pay per-view content will only cause larger companies to move towards this type of social marketing sooner rather than later.
Now is your company ready to take advantage of these changes?
What do you need to know to be able to use these Free or Low Cost Apps to reach more customers?
What Equipment do you need and What kind of Service Provider is needed to begin broadcasting?
1. You will need a smartphone with the newest Android and iOS software. All internet and mobile service providers allow these app. If you are on WIFI you will not have a DATA usage. These programs do not use alot of data so you can broadcast a longtime. On Average 100 mb per 20 mins of broadcasting time according to my tests.
2. Choose and Download the App you wish to broadcast on. If you think MeerKat is for you then download that app. These Apps work directly with Twitter and will notify your contact list (optional) when you go live. So this gives you the ability to create viewer lists.
3. Wireless Mics, Lighting Kits, Tripods, are all very helpful for creating quality broadcasts but not necessary. Good stable platforms will make your life easier and the video sharper when trying to show products. But many people walk around showing tours of their city taking questions from viewers.
4. Viewers will watch live streaming on their mobile device providing the content is interesting and targeted toward your viewer list. Interviews, Funny Content, Special Events are all great ways to watch and return watching you broadcasts.
In the long run in marketing your products and services it’s all about face time. Being able to speak with your customers in Boston while broadcasting from Atlanta and doing it for free is a tool I am finding invaluable.
Holds my note 3 perfectly. Perfect for screwing in your tripod and attaching your phone.
Holding an Android phone for video production

Use for adding my Android to create art videos, works great- easy to slip my phone in and remove!
UniGrip Pro Rocks!
By Jim on January 13, 2015
I love my UniGrip Pro. This has to be one of may favorite pieces of photography equipment. Mostly because it is made of steel and it is small and intuitive to use. The solid construction of the device means there is less wobbling and flexing that occurs with so many plastic products, beside the steel makes it is virtually indestructible. The best part about the product is modular and highly adaptable through a variety of attachments, lighting, tripods and unipods as well as a second UniGrip Pro for a multi angle single take.
By Francisco on August 7, 2014
Solid Build By Steven on June 23, 2014
I love the product. Very sturdy and well built. My only complaint was finding similar products for less then half the price. Still 5 stars
Great Mobile Phone Grip By Carla on June 20, 2014
I bought this Unigrip since where are no adapters for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 in my country. It fits perfectly on my gorillapod, so now I don’t have to bring a camera and a Phone with me, just the Phone will do:-) The material is very sturdy, therefore a bit heavy, and It would have been better if there had been guides along the sides, because now the Unigrip slips and it’s standing all crooked.
Now that I figured out how to put it together, I love it! By LBshrink on May 27, 2014
I got the unigrip on the advice of a fellow liverstreamer friend. I am seriously deficient in my ability to put things together without very exact instructions and played with the 3 simple pieces for days trying to figure it out. I should have just called the selller or my friend because he is a really nce person and would have explained it to me. A friend with a well functioning right hemisphere and spatial skills figured it out in about 25 seconds. Its THAT simple. It is one of the few adapters that securely holds a Samsung Galaxy S5 or larger phone/small tablet. The fit is better without using a case on the phone because that allows the phone to sit further back and get better grip. I have had to remove the cell phone cases with every other phone I’ve streamed with since I tend to pick larger phones (Razr, Droid Bionic) but that is the only a MINOR issue (it would be nce to keep on a protective case just as a precaution but I’ve streamed some pretty wild protests and never had a problem so its not a big deal). Highly recommend!
Even on a Galaxy Note 3….Finally secure! By J. Harrison “MightyJay” on April 29, 2014
Owning a larger than average smartphone, I had felt underserved when it was time to purchase accessories. I had even had a few close calls when attempting to use another clip-style mount with my Galaxy Note 3. This mount is perfect for my needs. It seems impossible to break and will likely last me well through this and my next few phones. There is NO phone that this mount cannot SECURELY accommodate.
The UniGrip is Fantastic – After searching and trying others this is the One Perfect Solution By Stanley Gustafson on April 13, 2014
I have been using the UniGrip for more than 2 weeks and love it. With this tool I can now angle and shoot video from just about any way that I want. In the car, at the office, outside, anywhere with the use of a tripod or grips it turns my phone into a real useable video camera. I can’t wait to upgrade my Note II to the new Galaxy S5 with the 16 Megapixel Camera and the ability to shoot video in Ultra-HD. Life is good with the UniGrip Pro, I recommend it to anyone with a smart phone! I am a real estate agent and this comes in very handy all the time. You can see some of my video using the UniGrip at my website […]. Get yours today, you will love it.
Very Sturdy By JLTB on April 10, 2014
Use this with my Samsung Galaxy Note 2 to attach to the XShot 2.0 Camera Extender to take with us on vacations so we don’t have to bug other people to take our pictures for us. Even use it to record videos at crowded concerts.
Review By William G. Gosnell on March 17, 2014
The bracket works as advertised and I have been using it without any difficulties or problems. Happy with my purchase.
Works very good By Bobby R. on January 27, 2014
It works great with my Galaxy 😀 I highly recommend it to anyone who would need something like this product.
Solidly Built By King McCarthy on December 30, 2013
I was delighted with the solid, well built quality and how easy it is to use. Well thought out. For now I’m using it to video my golf swing with my Samsung Note 2 phone and it easily accommodates it’s large size even with a thick phone case. Even with it’s heavy duty construction, it still is very light. I coupled it with a light weight, slender telescoping tripod, and I put both pieces in my golf bag. Easily retrievable but weight is negligible. Love it.
So simple, don’t over think it,
October 16, 2013 By Photo man
Great product support.I was confused when I opened the package of my Unigrip Pro when it arrived.Surprised of the quick standard mail delivery.I thought the phone would clamp between the front and backside, wrong! The simple clamping of the left and right side of the phone, makes it so simple to clamp on and use.Great product support, great product, great picture results, get one!
Best Smartphone holder EVER!,
September 10, 2013 By Dan
I got mine through Kickstarter and I have to say, I’m glad I helped get this to market. It is so handy, I don’t leave home without it. (I should get 2 more)I have the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and I mostly use the UniGripPro to mount my phone to a tripod while making time lapse movies.Since I’m a DIY kind of guy, so I also use it at my desk and in my car as a general phone holder because I can mount my phone anywhere I want, using a 1/4-20 (1/4″ diameter, 20 threads per inch) screw (The standard tripod screw). This “car dock” and “desk dock” can be used for any phone, so it’s “upgrade proof”.
“Awesome” August 20, 2013 By Tom in Atlanta
After using my photo for stills and video, I knew there had to be a better way to get better videos. This has been the answer to my problem with shacky pictures and video.easy to use and small enough to take with me anywhere. Highly recommend.
Clumsy April 4, 2013 By Daniel P Rossner
I purchased this after a review on youtube as an option for the note2. The item is a bit clumsy to get on the phone as the one screw is what holds it together so the top and bottom want to swivel. As wel its not a perfect fit for the very thin phones. The rubber feet have a gap behind them that the phone falls into and will scratch the phone, I will need to modify this some to make it better. Also there is no spring tension so you need to squeeze your phone and clamp it for it to work best a spring load would be better. For 50 bucks it’s a premium over some of the others on the market. There are not any that fit on a unipod or tripod so that’s why I got this one
“Great seller, excellent customer service.
The quality of the UnipGrip prois amazing! The good quality steel is able to hold my galaxy note II really tight. Recommend this to everyone! Fast shipping also! *****”
UniGrip Pro recently joined the line of incredible products offered by Quantum Networks and is proud to be a part of such a prestigious company
Quantum Networks, LLC is a pioneer in marketing and selling niche next generation communication devices. The company focuses on industry verticals with market caps between $100 and $250 million in annual sales and requires a “sales assist” component. The company believes that the added value of a technology sales associate advising, suggesting and advising the end user has been a key to its success.
Quantum-Wireless.com is a top online provider of wireless equipment including cell phone amplifiers, 3G and 4G routers, GPS tracking devices, mobile hotspot gear and much more.
The new iPhone 6+ from Apple presents an amazing all-in-one solution for recording reporter stand ups, voice-over narration and even cutting sound bites with cutaway sequences with an app.
The 6+ model (with max memory storage) is my pick for a smartphone that is good enough to do it all.
The camera is good, the plus model has image stabilization, and the device is connected. Video packages (or even trimmed rushes) can be cut in iMovie and quickly sent in from the field.
You will need to supplement the phone with some key equipment in order to capture broadcast quality video.
The gear I recommend as a video consultant falls into four main categories.
Note that there are many choices depending upon your expectations and budget.
Stable shots are best and to get them you will need to use a grip. I only recommend grips that securely attach to a phone and make a secure connection to a tripod or monopod.
Avoid the cheap springy clamps that you often see attached to selfie sticks and go for a solid grip made my Manfrotto, ALM, Shoulderpod, UniGrip Pro.
A good beginner microphone
A more rugged professional mic setup.
Sound bites, voice-over narration, and reporter stand ups (Piece to Camera) clips require a professional microphones to sound good enough to broadcast.
You can attach professional stick, lav or shotgun microphone with the IK iRig Pro. This is a great-sounding pre-amp and analog to digital converter that connects directly to your iPhone and gives amazing quality.
It can even provide phantom power for pro condenser and is powered by a 9-volt battery.
When you need to “illuminate your victim” you will want to use a face lamp like the Luxpad22.
This low-cost LED lamp is a winner because of the dimmer controls for intensity and color temperature.
It can be powered with standard, low cost video batteries or AA’s.
A power bank that provides at least 10,000 MaH of recharge power rounds out the list of bare essentials in the field.
Look for a model that provides at least one port labeled 2A or high power. This port is designed for power-hungry iPads and the big screen iPhone 6+.

Do you find your audio quality lacking when recording video on your smartphone? You are not alone. Many devices are our there to assist in this correcting this issue. Some are post production and some are rigged from other purposed products and even though newer products are soon coming online, your videos may not be able to adapt to them.
Well if you are a professional or semi professional you may already own a wireless Lav or Hand Held professional microphone kit. In this case you may only need to add a $30.00Adpater to transform your smartphone into a professionally produced audio/video recording device.
Here is how I use a TRRS 3.5 mm to XLR Audio Adapter and a Smamsung Galaxy Note 3 to create a real solution for audio recordings.
Why would I want to do this?
Anyone who carries a ton of gear with them knows how much easier life would be if they could use a smartphone and a wireless mic to record and even broadcast from anywhere. The true mobility it offers and the time it save in just setting up gear is a true money saver and allows almost anyone to be able to produce real broadcast ready content with little effort.
Next I add the Sennheiser Wireless Base Station to the top Cowboy Studio Cold Shoe Mounts and tighten the connections
I make sure to tighten the connection from both the cold shoe and the locking ring on the base station as this make the most solid connection.
Next I connect the 3.5 mm Audio AF to XLR Cable that comes with the Sennheiser Base Station.
Then I connect the TRRS 3.5 mm to XLR Cable to it
Next connect the TRRS 3.5 mm Audio Adapter 3 Ring Pin to the Audio Input Jack of your Smartphone.
Next turn on your wireless system and be sure you have a good signal between your mic and the base station. Then just pull up your camera or your LiveStream Broadcasting App and start recording.
You will also notice a 3.5 mm jack on the TRRS Cable for your headphone video playback. This is only for playback and not for monitoring live. However very handy for checking your audio levels before recording.
You can adjust the levels from the wireless mic transmitter or from the base station AF out Levels.
That’s it! You are now ready to Go Live with awesome audio.

Recently a very well respected online review magazine focused on the smartphone industry did a hands on review of the UniGrip Pro. Moblivious is a London based company headed by longtime professional cameraman Chris Prakoso
I’ve seen, tried and reviewed many universal mounting gears for smartphone over the years. They all share similar features among them, e.g. support for a wide range smartphone brands and models of various sizes; one or more standard 1/4″ 20 thread to mount various photographic tripod, stabilisation, cradle and other accessories.
But so far UniGrip Pro has one thing that other smartphone mounting gears don’t have, it’s made from solid metal! This means that UniGrip Pro, compared to other plastic-made gripper, is practically indestructible!
Get a Grip!
UniGrip Pro is made of two-part metal gripper. The two clamp is connected in the middle by a big screw.
You can adjust the width (or height) of the gripper by sliding these two frame closer or away from each other. When you get the right width you can secure it by tighten up the screw. After which the mechanism will grip your smartphone quite strongly. I tried to shake it considerably and it wouldn’t budge.
Both grippers sport soft rubber lining on each ‘tooth’ to create the ‘grip’ and to prevent it to damage your smartphone. And on each of this ‘tooth’ that you can find the mounting thread.
The opening is wide enough to cater at least my iPhone 6+ with another 2 cm more spare.
Using the two threads, you can mount your smartphone to any standard tripod, stabiliser or cradle. You can also mount an additional photographic accessories, such as LED Lights, Microphones, etc., on the other side of the grip.
By the way, you can use UniGrip Pro as a kickstand as well. With your smartphone clamped, you can prop it up on the grip. It’s a good way to turn your smartphone into an entertainment station.
UniGrip Pro is a truly universal Smartphone mount. Since it’s made of metal, it’s basically long-lasting. It’s no wonder that UniGrip offers a Lifetime Damaged Parts Replacement Warranty!
If there is one thing I don’t like from this is that it’s a little bit heavier that other gripper, and because of it’s designed I don’t think you can just carry it in your pocket. Ok, that’s two actually.
But apart from that UniGrip Pro is a solid, no pun intended, mounting system that you would find it invaluable companion for your mobile photography.
UniGrip Pro costs $49.95 and shipping is FREE for US. For shipping outside US please check here.

It wasn’t long ago when the introduction of High Quality Low Cost HD Equipment sparked a revolution in lowering the cost of making broadcast ready TV Shows. As these light weight mobile cameras were made more affordable the cost of production would hit an all time low. Allowing online and later offline projects such as Cops and the Real House Wives of Atlanta to become household names. It seemed High Definition Production was king and would be here to stay for a long time.
But Wait! In 2012 the industry would make another shift as production quality went even higher when the cost of 4K Video Production came crashing down. This was due to a flood of new low cost cameras hitting the market.
Artsy DSLR Music Video Style Shows helped to create a whole new way to produce television for shows like Carson Daly’s “Last Call” and Anthony Bourdain “Parts Unknown”. Best of all these shows could be made at a fraction of the cost. Coupled with incredibly advanced editing software and any talented high school student could (overnight) become the next Steven Spielberg.
Just when you thought the cost of production couldn’t get any lower, guess what… it did. As another High Quality Production player entered the market.
What? Yes the GoPro. The GoPro changes yet another aspect of production… The High Quality Low Cost Action Angle.
Since the dawn of film the cost of paying a stunt man to jump off a cliff would include insurance, a helicopter and special effects.
Today we can do the same by just giving a few GoPros to some of the millions of dare devils around the world who jump off cliffs for fun and we began to see the world in a whole new way. Now anyone jumping off a cliff can bring us along for the ride for less than a $500 investment and if the video is cool enough, get them paid!
The cost of Quality Production is constantly on the move down as technology is becoming even easier to learn by the masses. Drones and Underwater Cameras are so easy to use that we can record in way we never would have imagined 20 years ago. But can that cost get even lower?
Can You Feel The Current Shift?
What if you could give all of these 4K Camera and Advanced Editing Systems to 1.75 billion budding Photographers, Film Makers, Artists from around the world? What if they all started to use that camera every day to produce billions of cool, interesting photos and videos. Oh wait! We got that and BTW is’t ringing!
The Newly launched Smartphones like the new iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and the Galaxy Note 4 offer 4K Video along with amazing editing software apps can change the game yet again.
More than 2.23 billion people worldwide, or 48.9% of mobile phone users, will go online via mobile at least monthly in 2014, and over half of the mobile audience will use the mobile internet next year.
Smartphone Photos and Videos have become a part of our everyday life. So much so that anyone who has the ability to hold a phone and take a picture can instantly become a world wide sensation via social networks like Youtube, Twitter or Facebook. Facebook claimed over 800 Billion new photos were uploaded to their servers. While Youtube says more than 100 hours of videos were uploaded every minute in 2014.
What is driving this new shift?
The never ending drive for news and information and the chance of fame and fortune as more and more smartphone users share events like Occupy Hong Kong and Police Brutality
or maybe catching that celebrity out and about or that Cool Dog on Vine. It is well documented the shooting video with your phone can bring money and fame from News Agencies, Popular Gossip TV Shows and more
Now introduce this low cost capability to the amateur film makers and suddenly Smartphone Film Festivals start popping up all around the world.
The Smartphone is evolving into the production studio you carry in your hand. With thousands of the same accessories used by the pros now coming on the market like The UniGrip Pro Universal Smartphone Mount, anyone wanting to broadcast live to thousands of viewers need only attach their phone to a tripod, mic up, log into one of many mobile streaming sites like uStream and start talking and the cost of production drops to tens of dollars.
The type of productions that can be shared instantly to millions of social network viewers from any where in the world.
Recently UniGrip Pro was added to the incredible line of products offered by Adorama. A New York based camera and electronics super store.
For over 30 years, Adorama has promised to deliver to its customers the best products at the best prices. Starting from modest roots as a mom and pop store, Adorama has become far more than just a camera store. Today, we are one of the best known retailers for photo, video, and imaging products. By employing industry professionals that are as passionate about photography and video as you are, we are able to provide relatable experience and a knowledge born from experience to you. At our heart, we are more than a camera store – we are your professional community, here to support you as you continue to grow.
How many times have you wished for some extra light when recording video with your smartphone or lost a great moment in life because you were just too shaky when shooting with your hand?
How many group or family photos were you not in because you had to take the picture?
What if you could avoid all that by just mounting your smartphone to a tripod and then add light kits and microphones to it in order to give you broadcast quality videos and HD quality photos.
As smartphone users are beginning to realize the quality of their final projects does not just rely on the capability of their phone to shoot HD Quality photos and videos but it also depends on techniques professionals have been using since the invention of the camera… Accessories.
Traditionally professionals, semi professional and novice photographers would have a wide array of tools such as tripods, light kits, microphones as well as many different kinds of lens to help them produce higher quality photos and videos. Hence the invention of the photo bag.
Fast forward to today’s smartphone technology and we see that our smartphones can provide many of the same ,if not higher quality, results. Accept for one problem. Many of the tools needed to assist in this process have not been adopted by the masses as of yet. This is mainly due to the inability to connect the smartphone to such accessories.
All we need to do is look at the quality of some of the 880 Billion photos uploaded to social networks in 2014 or some of the 100 hours of video uploaded to Youtube every minute to see the growing need for such items. The shaky half hand held smartphone video has become almost an accepted part of everyday life.
Ask yourself how many time have you wished the cameraman would have been more steady when shooting that high school touchdown or the selfie you just took was just a little better focused?
Even skilled professionals who are trying to use some of these new technologies have found it difficult to produce with the current tools made available. Shooters seeking those professional tools and adapters are often forced to either use Do It Yourself Ideas or buy cheaply made, lesser quality products that are not adaptable and often break due to the poor design or construction.
Looking into the future it is not hard to see more individuals wanting the same quality of after market products for their smartphones as they have been using with their DSLRs and Video Cameras of today. Although the Camera Bag may be smaller the end user still wants all the same goodies.
The first step to transforming the Smartphone into a useable production camera is to make it adaptable to all the same tools currently enjoyed by so many shooters world wide. So the question is… How do we connect the phone to these accessories?
Introducing The UniGrip Pro Universal Smartphone Tripod Adapter.
The UniGrip Pro is A Professional Universal Smartphone Tripod Mounting Bracket that is Manufactured in Lawrenceville, GA USA and comes with a Lifetime Damaged Parts Replacement Warranty. It allows the user to mount any smartphone to any Tripod, Mono-pod, Stabilization Package, Light and Sound Kits and More due to its standard 1/4 20 screw inserts on the Top and Bottom of the Adapter. A simple two piece design makes the UniGrip Pro versatile enough to use with all standard photo and video accessories available on the market.
This simply means UniGrip Pro works with all the same tools many shooters already own and because it is laser cut from the highest grade US steel the user can know this tool will provide the strength, durability and security needed to protect their phone. It’s even strong enough to mount a small LED Screen with a light kit and audio package all at the same time without adding any additional weight to the device.
One Size Fits All! UniGrip Pro fits Electronic Accessories and Any Cell Phone with or without a protective case. The user only need to buy one mount for their current phone and all future phones.
Great Mobile Phone Grip Carla
I bought this Unigrip since where are no adapters for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 in my country. It fits perfectly on my gorillapod, so now I don’t have to bring a camera and a Phone with me, just the Phone will do:-)
Even on a Galaxy Note 3….Finally secure! J. Harrison “MightyJay”
Owning a larger than average smartphone, I had felt under served when it was time to purchase accessories. I had even had a few close calls when attempting to use another clip-style mount with my Galaxy Note 3. This mount is perfect for my needs. It seems impossible to break and will likely last me well through this and my next few phones. There is NO phone that this mount cannot SECURELY accommodate.
The UniGrip is Fantastic – After searching and trying others this is the One Perfect Solution Stanley Gustafson
I have been using the UniGrip for more than 2 weeks and love it. With this tool I can now angle and shoot video from just about any way that I want. In the car, at the office, outside, anywhere with the use of a tripod or grips it turns my phone into a real useable video camera. I can’t wait to upgrade my Note II to the new Galaxy S5 with the 16 Megapixel Camera and the ability to shoot video in Ultra-HD. Life is good with the UniGrip Pro, I recommend it to anyone with a smart phone! I am a real estate agent and this comes in very handy all the time. You can see some of my video using the UniGrip at my website. Get yours today, you will love it.
With over 1.7 Billion Smartphone users World Wide and as larger phones such as the iPhone 6 Plus and the Galaxy Note 4 enter the market place providing high quality HD platforms like 4K video and Larger Photo Formats, the demand for smartphone accessories like the UniGrip Pro will only increase.
UniGrip Pro hopes to tap into that emerging market share with a long lasting and versatile solution to shooting professional style photos and videos using these type smartphones.

“My love of construction comes from
dreaming about what it would look like to breathe new life into the
dying downtown strip and old antebellum homes of Main Street – small
town, USA where I grew up. At the University of Colorado at Boulder
while studying Architectural Engineering my dreams began to take shape.
Style is a reflection of life experiences and as such my personal style
is eclectic – contemporary, slightly industrial, with a touch of modern
fascination and a pinch of classic elegance. I like it all. An interior
designer once described it as ‘old world traveler'”.
