New combo pack enables online educators to secure, stabilize and easily set-up multiple cameras, lights and accessories to offer engaging views for students 

East Brunswick, N.J., October 5, 2020 – Back-to-school or back-to-Zoom, image is everything and we all need to look our best on camera these days. Platypod, makers of the world’s most compact camera supports designed to help photographers get steady shots in tight spots where standard tripods can’t go, announces today the perfect toolkit, especially for educators, to help boost online video presence – the new Platypod Ultra Commercial Twin Pack. 

“The pandemic has changed so many things in our lives, especially increasing requirements to be present online to teach and learn,” said Larry Tiefenbrunn, Platypod CEO and Inventor. “The Ultra Commercial Twin Pack provides educators giving it their all to engage their students online with a creative tool to enhance their online presentations.” 

Doubling creative impact possibilities for distance learning, the new Ultra Twin Pack is ideal for strategically setting up multiple cameras, lights, and accessories in small spaces. It has been designed specifically for online education applications where teachers might need multiple angles of coverage to show students exactly what’s going on, like in a chemistry experiment, cooking class, or musical instrument demo. 

To showcase the unique and creative possibilities of the Ultra Commercial Twin Pack in an educational setting, Platypod has made available this entertaining and humorous use case video. 

The twin pack includes two Platypod Ultra mounting plates, two Platypod silicon rubber pads, two 3″ spigot adapters 3/8″f to 1/4″f, and two 1/4″ to 1/4″ crossnut adapters.

The Ultra Commercial Twin Pack is available now in the Platypod store for $89.00.
