    Any idea how to view video recorded on a camcorder on my ipad - without downloading?

    ipad 3 & DCR SR55 Camcorder

    For work reasons I often need to record someone delivering a presentation and then almost immediately replay it to them so we can analyse and critique their performance. In the past I have connected the camcorder to a TV, and this is usually the best result. Lacking a TV I can play the video THROUGH my laptop using the software that came with the camera (Picture Motion Browser it's called, I think).

    My question is can I do this with the ipad? All references to video and ipads that I have seen seem to involve actually downloading the video to the ipad. I just need it to act as a monitor for the camera.

    Any help much appreciated! If I can crack this, then I can stop lugging a laptop around the world.

    Thanks

    James

    Since this is just for critiquing their performance, why not just record the presentation using the iPad? Once they have the performance set in their mind, record the real thing with your camera.

    Depending on how the camera records the video and if it is on an SD card you may try the camera connection kit for the iPad. It may be able to import the video directly off the card which would be a lot faster.

    Just another option. Otherwise there is no way that I know of using the iPad as a video monitor.

    Perhaps consider looking for and buying a small DVD player with video inputs.

    Thanks, but I need something far more professional than the ipad camera (however good it is). I need a decent zoom, exposure control, tripod etc.

    Thanks, but it records to a hard disk, not an sd card.

    Background apps are hiding for good reason. Seek them out, close them. The world will be a better place.

    Check out CloudFTP, I understand that it will do want you want wirelessly to your iPad as long as your camcorder has a USB lead and your iPad has an App to play the video format produced.
