By using the regular Autocue 10” mounting hardware, hood and glass, you can quickly and easily attach your iPad in place of the traditional monitor to create an iPad teleprompter. Scripts can be prepared or loaded within any of the apps available from the app store, then start scrolling – either with the start/ stop buttons in the app, or via a wired or wireless hand controller.
Autocue, the world’s leading teleprompter manufacturer, has offered iPad teleprompting solutions since the launch of the iPad, and today offers three solutions to cater for all cameras, lens types and budgets.
Using the same hood, mounting bracket and glass as the Starter Series 10” teleprompter, the mainline iPad prompter from Autocue fits any camera & lens up to ENG in size.
At half the price of the mainline iPad teleprompter, this smaller and lighter rig offers a very cost-effective solution for users of DV and DSLR cameras and camcorders.
Using the same hood, mounting bracket and glass as the Starter Series 7” teleprompter, the iPhone teleprompter is the perfect portable teleprompter to use with your iPhone.
Autocue has offered iPad teleprompters ever since the iPad was first launched by Apple and it has proven hugely popular with all our customers from top broadcasters all the way through to schools, universities and home video bloggers.
The key advantage of the iPad or any other tablet teleprompter is that the software (the app) is running on the tablet itself, which is also serving as the teleprompter monitor, so there is no need for a separate laptop or any cabling between the laptop and the teleprompter. This makes for a very portable, quick and easy unit to set up and operate so broadcasters have embraced this concept for mobile reporting. It also reduces the cost versus a traditional teleprompter set up as there is no laptop, no teleprompter monitor and no cabling required – this appeals to many professional and home studios who are operating on a tight budget.
There are however some constraints to using an iPad or tablet teleprompter:
In summary, an iPad prompter is great for simple, short scripts that are prepared in advance, for single camera operations with no connection to other cameras/systems, and are easily presenter operated. This is true for thousands of simple prompting applications, hence the iPad prompters are some of the most popular units we sell, however if you have more complex requirements, we can readily recommend other portable solutions that will provide much more advanced functionality and are just as simple to use.
The iPad portable and the iPad LITE are both complete on-camera units, designed to mount to any standard tripod. They both employ a wide angle hood as standard in order to accommodate wide angle lenses and they both use the same iPad/ tablet mounting bracket. This bracket can also be adjusted and the hood removed to convert it in to straight-read prompter with the iPad below the lens – perfect for use with a light ring.
The key difference is the size and functionality of the camera rig – the larger iPad portable unit can accommodate anything up to an ENG camera and has an adjustable camera mounting plate. The smaller iPad LITE unit has a thinner mount and no height adjustment, and therefore is perfect for smaller DV and DSLR cameras. The iPad portable is also designed to be flat packed, and folds up in to very small form factor to fit in to an optional carry case. There is no carry case option for the iPad LITE.
The iPad straight-read provides an over the camera straight-read prompter that attaches the iPad mounting plate to the handle of the camera via an adjustable arm. This is a very basic set up but is often used for handheld ENG shots.
Autocue led the teleprompting industry since its inception in 1955 and was one of the first companies to offer an iPad prompter. All our iPad prompters are designed with the same principles as the Starter Series range, and feature many of the benefits of our broadcast standard Master Series range:
If you don’t like what you see, then we offer a no quibble returns policy, thankfully yet to be enacted by any of our thousands of customers. We also have support teams on hand in the UK and USA to offer helpful advice should you have any questions or issues.
Autocue supply a choice of two control options – a wired or a wireless controller that both work with the iPrompt Pro app. Alternatively, there are other apps available that allow you to control the script from your iPhone. You can also prompt without a controller by setting the speed of the script in advance, and then pressing play – however, this makes it difficult to allow for any natural pauses and changes in pace when speaking and requires spacing to be inserted in to the script in the appropriate places.
Autocue controllers work with the iPrompt Pro app, however there are many others to choose from and these are listed on the tab above, or can be found via the app store.
