Vinten introduces plug-and-play prompter
Vinten’s new Vision iScript is a portable prompting system for local news and documentary production. Built for on-the-move ENG-style shooting requiring multiple daily setups and dismantling, the Vision iScript fits into a single neat, custom-built, rolling case.
This smart fluid head and teleprompter combination is designed to work with the A/C or battery-powered GoPrompt 12 system from Autoscript. When combined with a Vision Ped Plus pedestal or two-stage Pozi-Loc tripod, it is ideal for studio or corporate applications and rugged, remote location work.
Autoscript’s GoPrompt differs from a traditional teleprompter because the computer, with a standard Windows XP operating system, is built into the prompting screen. GoPrompt 12 offers a high-brightness screen for outdoor work, network or USB connectivity, wired keyboard and mouse and integral prompting software.
The system employs a 900MHz wireless scroll control, so the only cable necessary is the cord that powers the prompters from mains or batteries.
