Autoscript offers upgrade rebate for flat-screen teleprompter monitors
Autoscript is running a special New Year’s promotion that allows customers to update existing CRT-based teleprompting equipment and receive a rebate for purchasing new, lightweight flat-screen monitors.
From Jan. 1 through March 31, 2011, North American customers who buy a new Autoscript LED teleprompter monitor can submit their old CRT monitors to Autoscript and receive a $250 rebate. All previously-owned CRT teleprompter monitors will be recycled.
Users interested in this promotion can choose from 15in, 17-in or 19-in LED monitors, all of which are easy to retrofit into existing prompting systems. Within the shipment of the new prompter (or by request at email@example.com), users will receive a rebate form and instructions for returning old CRT units. Once users return their submission form with the old CRT to Autoscript, they will receive the $250 rebate.
Included in this promotion is Autoscript’s newest monitor, the 17in LED17TFT-BLW System — a wide-angle, on-camera prompter that incorporates the latest in Autoscript’s illumination technology, the TFT (thin-film transistor) LED system.
Unlike CCFLs (Cold Cathode Fluorescent Tubes), which take several minutes to reach full efficiency and light output, the TFT LED offers instant warm-up to full brightness.
