Phone and Tablet Mounts for Live Streaming and Live Video

Seems like everyone with anything good to say is out on one of the social media live streaming platforms.  Facebook Live, Busker and Periscope (owned by Twitter) have emerged as three of the top platforms for live streaming.  For those unfamiliar with this form of social media, it’s all done using an app on a smartphone or tablet. The use of a good phone or tablet mount makes for a better broadcast.  Why?  Ever do Facetime while the other person is holding their phone or tablet?  It feels like a fishing trip that went wrong.  The shaking on the other … Read more

Smartphone Tripod Mounts for Everyday Use

Smartphone tripod mounts are a fairly recent product introduction that has taken on some good momentum in terms of usefulness.  We aren’t talking about a full-sized 48″ tripod, but a large variety of mini tripods.  A mini tripod generally stands no more than 12 inches high, most are shorter.  They are used to mount your smartphone on a tabletop or, as you will see, wrapped around an object.

Tablet Mounts for Hospital Beds

A recent visit to a rehabilitation center and observing patients with large tablets leaning on their laps and stomachs led me to write this article about tablet mounts for hospital beds.  A tablet with an internet connection is important for someone spending some time away from home.  It helps to stay connected and see what’s going on in the world.  Downtime in a rehab center is long and boring.  Having a tablet allows the patient to keep in touch via email or FaceTime.  It provides some entertainment with news and game apps.  You can even watch TV with the Comcast application. … Read more

Tablet Floor Stands and Table Mounts
