NEP Studios Selects Autoscript Teleprompting
May 9, 2012
SHELTON, CONN.: NEP Studios, a division of NEP
Broadcasting, LLC, recently purchased a quantity of Autoscript equipment for
use at its Studio 33, Studio 52, Studio 54, 5th Avenue Studio and Midtown
NEP Studios recently purchased a series of
17- and 19-inch teleprompter monitors, 15-inch talent monitors, ClockPlus
timecode displays and WinPlus-News software from Autoscript for use in five of
its nine studio facilities in Manhattan. Autoscript’s
LED17TFT and LED19TFT wide-angle, on-camera prompters incorporate Autoscript’s latest
illumination technology, the thin-film transistor LED system. Unlike cold
cathode fluorescent tubes, which take many minutes to reach full efficiency and
light output, the LED17TFT and LED19TFT offer instant warm-up to full
brightness. In addition, these on-camera teleprompters come with a wide-angle
hood, making them optimal for news- or studio-based productions.
Autoscript’s WinPlus-News software is a
prompting package that features drop-down menus and configurable display
options. The WinPlus News package comes complete with a configurable
five-button Deskpad Optical Scroll Control and a PCI Promptcard, which provides
two video outputs (PAL/NTSC) and Genlock option. Autoscript now also offers the
WinPlus PCI card with an optional SDI card with five video outputs.
WinPlus-News is compatible with leading newsroom systems, including
ENPS and iNEWS, which allows NEP Studios to integrate show rundowns and clip
information. The incorporated use of both ENPS and iNEWS with the WinPlus
software provides NEP Studios with an all-in-one solution for show rundowns,
cues and prompting.
ClockPlus is an
LED SMPTE/EBU timecode display that has the added feature of changing color
from green to red when a suitable Tally input is applied.
