Tablet and Microphone Recommendations
CompetitionSuite has an iPad and Android Tablet app available for judging. You can download the tablet apps using the following links.
Some devices do not support external microphones and, therefore, will not work for recording commentary. We try to support as many devices as possible, but can't guarantee compatibility with all devices. For best results, please follow our recommendations below.
If available, we recommend using the Samsung Galaxy Tab A. It is a solid tablet and not very expensive (in relation to other tablets). To use an external microphone with a Samsung Galaxy Tab A, you will need to purchase a microphone and an adapter.
- Tablet: Samsung Galaxy Tab A SM-T350NZAAXAR 8 Inch
- Lavalier Microphone (requires splitter): Olympus ME-52W Noise Canceling Microphone
- Splitter Cable: StarTech.com 3.5mm 4-Pin to 2x 3-Pin Headset Splitter Cable
- Headset Microphone: Insignia - On-Ear Analog Mono Headset
