Cinamaker has been built on the iOS platform using proprietary PerfectSync(TM)  technology that allows you to simultaneously connect up to four video cameras and up to eight audio sources for video/audio recording, live-editing and live-streaming.

Before downloading the Cinamaker Director Pad App (iPad only) and the Cinamaker Capture App (iPhone and iPad) for each of your video and audio capture devices, you will need the following hardware.


Cinamaker Director Pad App, downloaded from the App Store, requires an iPad to serve as the control center. 

  • iPad Air 2
  • iPad mini - 6th gen
  • iPad 2017
  • iPad Pro


iPhone Cameras

Cinamaker Capture is the companion App to Cinamaker Director Pad and can be downloaded from the App Store. 

Cinamaker Capture can be used on any of the following iPhone video cameras:

IPad cameras can also be used with Cinamaker. 

Digital Cameras

In addition to iPhone and iPad cameras, Cinamaker gives you the flexibility of using a variety of digital video cameras, including DSLRs, camcorders, and professional video cameras. Cinamaker is able to accept both video and audio from digital cameras provided there is clean HDMI* coming from the device.

In order to use digital cameras with Cinamaker it is imperative the camera outputs CLEAN HDMI. Please refer to you camera's user manual to determine if your camera supports this mode.


Cinamaker requires audio to be transmitted to Director Pad through iPhones. 

Cinamaker accepts up to eight (8) iPhones for capturing audio. The iPhone's you use as cameras can be used to capture audio as well as video. So if you are using 4 iPhone's as cameras, you can add an additional four iPhones but they would only become Capture devices in this example.

Connectivity Kits (optional)

Cinamaker Connectivity Kits are designed to ensure continuous, reliable connections between cameras and iPad when distance, RF interference or other unforeseen circumstances are present. Cinamaker connectivity kits can consist of a Gigabit Wired Hub, iPhone and iPad adapters, HDMI adapters and required cables. See: "Using Wired Ethernet to Connect Devices"
