Whether the people being filmed are seasoned broadcasters or nervous camera-phobics…
…using a teleprompter is a simple way to get the best out of your talent!
Our state of the art ProLine Series Teleprompter supports any camera type and is readable to about 27 feet distance. This autocue connects to either a Mac or PC and is operated by one of our experienced technicians. Our autocue operator simply needs a text file to ingest into the laptop and will be able to adjust how fast the text is running to facilitate a comfortable reading speed.
iPad Autocue System
A recent addition to the teleprompter community is the iPad Prompter. Not only is it smaller and more flexible, its very intuitive and can be operated by anyone. Furthermore its a great cost saving alternative to the traditional studio Proline prompters.
Why use a teleprompter?
Corporate Films: Busy executives don’t usually have time to learn lines or speeches off by heart. Using a teleprompter allows them to look directly into the camera and smoothly deliver their key points, without it being obvious that they’re reading.
Live Entertainment: Even professional entertainers sometimes have the dreaded stage-fright – a teleprompter is the perfect security blanket to put everyone at ease, should a mind-blank occur.
Live Broadcasts: Broadcasting from the field doesn’t have to be without the comforts of the studio. Renting a teleprompter for live ‘on location’ news reports can save hours of memorizing and rehearsing and eliminate awkward glances at scripts.
A more recent addition to our arsenal of filming aids is the ingenious EyeDirect System.
It is basically a teleprompter but instead of the talent you are filming reading off lines of text he or she sees the interviewer face to face – thanks to the various built-in mirrors. So you can get your talent talking down the lens because he is face to face with the interviewer.
The EyeDirect is a photographic device that guarantees eye contact from any subject, regardless of age or mood. Used by producers and shooters all over the world, the EyeDirect can guarantee an authentic connection. By employing two mirrors, a ‘periscope’ is created to draw the subject’s attention to what is reflected behind camera. EyeDirect requires no electricity and is as simple as a child’s toy!
The technology is fairly simple: the interviewer sits next to the cameraman and looks into a mirror which throws up his image onto a transparent screen which is attached to the camera lens. A simple but extremely useful device.
