Prompting Technology
Contributing Editor David Kirk has a
look at what's new and happening in
the evolving world of teleprompting...

T

eleprompting has evolved steadily
since the first devices were
introduced in the early 1950s. The
most important advances were the
transition from paper-roll prints to
electronically-displayed text and the
use of a semitransparent mirror to
allow a rolling script to be displayed
in front of the live camera. Recent
years have seen the increasing use of
tablets and mobile phones and display
devices, either alongside or in front of
the camera lens.
Autoscript's
WC-IP
wireless
teleprompting scroll control is a
new upgrade of the company's firstgeneration wireless scroller. It allows
presenters in a live news broadcast to
scroll a prompting script themselves
from anywhere in the studio.
Operation is via a miniature forward/
reverse joystick, three navigation
buttons and two programmable
function buttons. All buttons are
managed within Autoscript's WinPlusIP teleprompting software and can
be enabled, disabled, or assigned as
required. The WC-IP can be configured
and paired with Autoscript's WB-IP
base station using WinPlus-IP software
which also provides connection
status and battery life monitoring.
The controller also has an LED status
display for the battery. Recharging can
be performed via a standard USB-C
cable. Each WC-IP connects with a
single WB-IP base station and will
maintain connection over up to 100
metres. " With its extensive range of

CueScript's range of
teleprompters blend
style with practicality,
resulting in a balance
of design for purpose
and performance

operation, the WC-IP control is suitable
for productions of any size, " said
Autoscript product manager Robin
Brown. " The fully featured bespoke
design mirrors the functionality of
our desktop scroll control, giving
on-air talent the reliability and ease
of operation they need for a smooth
and stress-free broadcast. " The new
Autoscript WC-IP wireless scroll
control can be purchased on its own or
packaged with the WB-IP base station.
Over the last year, CueScript has
been installing and supporting its
professional prompting solutions in
remote locations, including home
studios. With CueScript's all-IP
structure, presenters and prompter
operators can be based separately in
studios, at their homes or on location,
with operators having complete
control of the display in real time.
" CueScript has been providing this
IP-based remote workflow to major
broadcasters around the world for
several years. With the restrictions
imposed on productions to reduce or
eliminate travel and maintain social
distancing, providing this ability to
the wider production community has
worked extremely well, " said Brian
Larter, Director, CueScript. " It's simply
an extension to the studio system with
presenters and operators working
remotely. " CueScript's systems are
designed to work straight out of the
box, employing all the functionality
expected in a professional broadcast
environment. Operators can take
control of all the functions of the
prompter display remotely,
including
adjusting
the
brightness and contrast,
changing the video inputs,
and even changing the
brightness of the prompter cuelights.
CueScript continues to
innovate with several new products
scheduled to launch in 2021.
Datavideo's TP-300 Prompter
Kit can be used in either
a theatre setting or a
video studio. Prepared
scripts or cue sheets
can be made into
the DV Prompter Pro
app
software,
network

Ikan's Elite iPad
teleprompter kit

transferred or simply copy pasted in
this free to download tool. Scripts can
be scrolled at a set automatic rate or
controlled by a user with the wireless
remote. Fonts, colours and text sizes
can be selected by the user. The TP300 can be adapted to hold a variety
of tablet devices but is advised to
be used with 10 " tablets such as the
regular iPad.
Ikan's Elite iPad teleprompter kit
is a complete package which turns
an Apple iPad into a teleprompter.
Based on the company's Elements
camera support system, it can be
used as a portable through the glass
teleprompter or a 15 mm rod based
camera support system. Compatible
with any iPad teleprompter software,
it is supplied complete with an EV2
adjustable camcorder baseplate, 12
inch rods, 70/30 framed prompter
glass, and an adjustable iPad mount
that is compatible with the iPad, iPad
2, iPad 3 and iPad 4.
Padcaster's Parrot Teleprompter
transforms a smartphone into
a miniature teleprompter. It is
compatible with most smartphones,
including Apple iPhones and Google
Android phones. The kit includes 13
different mounting rings for mobile
devices and DSLR video cameras.
Padcaster's Parrot remote connects
with the teleprompter via Bluetooth
and allows remote control of text
speed, size and colour. Additional
features include the ability to save
scripts directly in the app, turn
mirror mode on or off, loop scripts
and control text margins to fit the
chosen screen size.
Portaprompt's 32 inch Quasar
on-camera prompter is based on
the company's Premium (up to 800
nit) and Quasar (1500 nit) displays which are designed for broadcast, TV
production, live event and conference
applications. The prompter uses the
same common interface, has 270
degree embedded tally lamps and

comes with composite video and SDI
inputs as standard. It also includes
IP connectivity. Miles Kingsbury,
Portaprompt's Chairman and Head
of Design comments: " After we
launched the new monitors at IBC
2018, we were approached by Avalon
who needed a larger prompter than
our existing 24 inch for a 20 metre
reading distance from presenter
to prompter. It took us under four
weeks to go from concept to product
delivery and the feedback we have
since had from a number clients has
convinced us to offer it to the market
for sale as well as rental. I think it is
the brightest and largest broadcast
prompting monitor available in the
market today and, with a weight of
under 16.5 kg, is acceptable to camera
departments as well as the production
and presentation teams. "
PromptSmart's
Studio
mobile
teleprompting software, available for
PC and Mac, uses speech recognition
to control the speed of its prompt
display without needing an internet
connection. If a presenter ad-libs,
the software stops and waits until it
detects that the delivery is back on
script. PromptSmart's supporting iCast
is a cloud-based service which allows
subscribers to access their files via a
mobile phone or tablet.
