Las Vegas, NV – April 13, 2012The Tiffen Company, a leading manufacturer and distributor of award-winning accessories for the still imaging, video, motion picture, and broadcast markets, is debuting three brand new Listec™ teleprompter models at NAB 2012: the Listec PromptWare™ PW-04 for smartphones, Listec PromptWare PW-10 for 10” tablets, and the new SteadiPrompt™ combination teleprompter/camera stabilizer system at booth C8818. “When it comes to delivering product versatility, Listec engineering is ingenious,” says Steve Tiffen, President and CEO, The Tiffen Company. “By integrating smartphones, tablets and, Steadicams into its world-class teleprompter technology, Listec gives communicators—whether they are a journalist reporting on location, a popular video blogger doing sponsorship commercials, or a sports icon giving a pregame overview—an immense amount of flexibility in terms of teleprompter mobility and application. Listec has also significantly increased the return on investment for every smartphone, tablet, and Steadicam doing double duty by supporting professional dialog delivery.”

About SteadiPrompt

The new SteadiPrompt is engineered for integration with the famous Steadicam camera stabilizer systems. The initial rollout includes support for the Steadicam Ultra2, Phantom/Phantom-V, Clipper, Archer2, and Zephyr systems. The dual-purpose SteadiPrompt allows users to shoot and prompt at the same time, providing a smoother workflow for any scenario requiring the teleprompter to follow a moving commentator or communicator, such as in a talk show, sporting event, or commercial where the person speaking is often in motion. The new system comes in 8” and 10” LCD displays and weighs only 6lbs. SteadiPrompt supports a wide range of cameras from camcorders to DSLR cameras to professional high-end broadcast cameras.
