Telescript DC is an affiliate of Telescript, Inc., the premiere manufacturer of teleprompting systems in the United States. We, like other serious prompting professionals across the U.S. and around the world, use their systems on all of our jobs.
Telescript Pro Computer Prompting System
The heart of the prompting system is the laptop-based prompting program. Telescript DC fields the Telescript Pro program—the tool of choice for prompting professionals—on all jobs. Our current platform is the Dell Latitude E-series laptop: fast, sturdy, and reliable.

Telescript free-standing prompting display.
Here the prompting display is supported by
its own tripod. Camera lens enters through
the cloth shroud behind the words, so talent
eyeline is directly into lens. This is the most
common display mode for straight-forward
talking head shots, with static camera (on
sticks) and static talent.
Video Displays—Lens View
Our standard video package is built around the Telescript Fold n’ Go system, light, portable, and versatile. We can mount the prompting display on your fluid head, for moving shots, or support the prompting display on its own tripod if the shot is static. Our standard monitors are 15” state-of-the-art multisync LCDs, with a brightness of 500nts. We can also supply high brightness monitors for outdoor locations, with a brightness of 1800nts. The entire display unit, with mounting hardware included, weighs just under fifteen pounds. We can mount the unit on film cameras, full-size video cameras, or smaller DV cams, and can work with any tripod and fluid head that can accommodate the weight. The 15” system is viewable from up to 25 feet. In those rare instances where more throw is needed, we can supply a 17” monitor.

Television Production Displays, Direct-View
