It used to be that to purchase a prompter was expensive, cumbersome, and required AC power on location – not any more!
Datavideo make a range of prompters that can be assembled and will work with virtually any size of camera – from DSLRs, to handheld camcorders, and fullsize ENG cameras. These prompters are suitable for use on location on in the studio.
Using an iPad or Android tablet, these tablets can be used with wired or Bluetooth remote control; each prompter features a translucent mirror so the talent looks straight down the lens while presenting; and come bundled with DVPrompter software, thus providing a complete solution, regardless of the size of your camera and able to be used in a variety of locations.
3 prompter models are investigated in the video above – the TP-500, suitable for DSLRs; TP-300 designed for handheld, portable cameras; and the TP-600 for full-size ENG camcorders.
