I’ve been looking for a teleprompter for a while now. My search led me to OneTakeOnly.com and their Pad Prompter. As the name suggest, the Pad Prompter is a teleprompter designed to work with the Apple iPad.
A teleprompter is a device used in television and moviemaking to project a speaker’s script right in front of the camera lens. With a Teleprompter, you do not need to look down to consult written notes. You appear to have memorized the speech or be speaking spontaneously, looking directly into the camera lens. It’s great for news reporting or sales presentations.
Teleprompters are normally used in professional studios, and are quite expensive. However, thanks to advancing technology and the Apple iPad, you can now set up a teleprompter rig for less than $1,000. That’s still not cheap, but it’s within reach of many hobbyist videographers.
