Why Do You Need Additional Equipment to Record Classroom Video?

Honestly, we don't think you need anything other than a smartphone or tablet to capture videos. Coupled with the Torsh TALENT T Uploader app, you can capture videos and upload to the cloud in a matter of seconds. However, we understand that our clients record video for a number of different purposes and some of those purposes require higher quality audio and hands-free recording. As a result, we've diligently researched the most efficient and cost effective ways to record hands-free video with great audio. Based on our research, the equipment package recommended above is the best bang for the buck that delivers great quality recordings. But we didn't just stop there, we researched a range of mics, stands, and lenses across a wide price range to give you a number of different options.
