Services & Rates

Our teleprompter service packages include all necessary technology as well as one of our experienced technicians. We offer two basic types of teleprompter packages: Television/Video Production & Public Speaking/Presidential. Every electronic component is backed up by a duplicate unit on every job.


Services

  • Television/Video Production
    Our television/video package includes a state-of-the-art Telescript™ computer prompting system with one display. The display unit can be mounted on the camera’s tripod head or configured for freestanding operation. Additional prompting displays can be added as needed.
  • Public Speaking/Presidential — Standard
    Our standard public speaking package includes a state-of-the-art Telescript™ computer prompting system and two presidential displays to cover one podium. Prompter displays for a second podium can be added.
  • Public Speaking/Presidential — Motorized
    The motorized public speaking package also includes the Telescript™ computer prompting system and two presidential displays to cover one podium. The difference: motorized base stations allow the panels to be raised and lowered from backstage. Prompter displays for a second podium can be added.
