Robin Good: The Tripad is a physical accessory that provides a flat solid surface that can be hanged on any tripod, and which can hold your portable computer while you shoot.
This setup makes it easy for you to check shots and clips on a large high-resolution screen instead of the camera small LCD-screen while providing a solid and durable flat support for any other related equipment you may need to have next to your camcorder.
