What is the E Series?
Introducing the all new entry level teleprompter series. Now, for just a little more that you would spend on an iPad or Tablet teleprompter, you can have all the benefits of a studio teleprompter. The EL Series teleprompter comes with a VGA monitor and includes ZaPrompt Pro Teleprompter software. With this combination of software and hardware you will be set-up like a pro.
Why the E Series Teleprompter?
You may find yourself torn between spending hundreds of dollars on a professional studio teleprompter or buying a less robust tablet or iPad teleprompter. The EL Series will make that decision a lot easier. Why settle for a tablet teleprompter when you can be set up like a Pro with a real studio teleprompter that includes one of the best desktop Mac and PC based teleprompter software solutions on the market?
With the Economy series teleprompter, you get everything that you would have gotten with the purchase one of our more expensive G2 or T2 series teleprompters. The main difference is the design of the sled and mirror enclosure. The Economy Series camera mount reverts back to a rigid sled system or AVM. The height is adjusted by the riser plates of the sled or AVM. It has two positions that will accommodate all cameras.(the G2 and T2 series have a fully adjustable camera height mount). This rigid system allows the unit to be more compact for storage and transport. It fits into a smaller case than the other comparable teleprompters. This change allows the production of a: high quality, fully versatile, product for a much lower price. It comes standard with the same monitor, mirror, and software as all of our professional studio teleprompters.
The Economy17 has a 14" X 16" 70/30 HD video production grade beam-splitter mirror, perfectly sized for the included 17" monitor. This setup allows for a maximum reading distance of up to 22', making it perfect for most shots. Whether you're a veteran videographer or a novice, The EL will make every take, easy and professional.
The Econony 17 also includes ZaPrompt Pro Teleprompter Software and is licensed to be installed on up to four computers. This dual screen software allows the operator to reverse the image on the teleprompter monitor without having to reverse the image on the primary computer or operator monitor. Thus, the operator is able to read the script upright while the image on the secondary monitor (the teleprompter monitor) is flipped for the mirror on the Teleprompter. The software enables keyboard shortcuts for pausing and playing the text, making rapid changes to the speed and size of the text, changing the margin width and more, all while the text is continually scrolling. The handy book-marking tool returns the monitor to the exact part of the text prior to editing changes, providing for a seamless and error-free flow in the production. ZaPrompt Pro efficiently handles longer texts, breaking them down into smaller chunks and eliminating the need for buffering time. The software supports multiple color text and different fonts, making presentations for multiple readers a snap. ZaPrompt Pro also enables the speaker to run the program without the need for an operator.
