DSLR Prompter

Why struggle with expensive re-takes, on stage talent drifting off script or a presenters’ loss of eye contact with the viewing audience? The Datavideo Prompter Kit, TP-500, is designed to help you overcome these problems by converting a small tablet computer (not supplied) into a low cost and effective prompter.

The Datavideo Prompter Kit TP-500 can be used on location, or in a video studio. Prepared scripts or cue sheets can be easily copied and pasted into the DV prompter app software from email and scrolled at a set automatic rate or controlled by a user with the optional WR-500 wired/wireless remote for a more natural result. A number of clear fonts, colours and text sizes are available making reading comfortable from a variety of distances.

Optional hard carrying case available - HC-500.

  • Simple, free software (available on the Apple App Store and on Google Play) and WR-500 universal bluetooth wireless remote allow users to produce professional results at low cost
  • Optional remote can be used wired or wireless
  • Special 60/40 Glass allows the presenter to read the script and the camera to see the subject
  • Strong and rigid prompter frame fixes securely to any standard tripod quick release plate
  • The prompter frame is designed to allow stand alone, in front of camera lens prompting
  • The black cloth lens snood is adjustable to adapt for a wide variety of camera lenses
  • Quick and simple assembly that requires no special tooling
  • Expandable mounting bracket system allows simple but secure installation of tablet computer
  • An optional remote control is also available (additional purchase)
  • Optional hard carrying case available - HC-500

Expandable Mounting Bracket Size (Tablet width):

  • Minimum: 110mm
  • Maximum: 210mm

(Apple iPad2™ width: approx 185mm, Samsung Galaxy Tab (10.1) width: approx 175mm)

Use with my Canon 70D and Android tablet. Amatuer talent I have hired as spokesperson has turned semi-pro thanks to this device. Associated DV software app works well... At a large size and slowest speed setting, I can use it and so can my hired gun. Works well with my 10-inch tablet...

This DRLS mounting teleprompter package performs as promised. Once I found the set up instructions on line it was an easy set up. It readily mounted to my tripod and it easily accepted my Canon 5D. It is exactly what I needed in my small studio shooting for FaceBook.

Ok, we "as a company" got tired of filming our subjects and having the issue of the speaker noticeably looking to the top, side, bottom of the camera while reading their script during recording.We do most of our recordings via a Canon DSLR and used an iPad for a teleprompter. This product worked extremely well for our needs. Easy installation, durable and effective. I've not noticed any issues with the footage being recorded darker. The text is displayed the way it should on the teleprompter glass.
