Portaprompt to Cue up Prompting Equipment

At NAB2007, U.K.-based Portaprompt will showcase advances in its line of Portable Prompting equipment, including improvements to the company's Nano-Prompter.

Among the upgrades is a wireless networking feature to AP's ENPS, enabling live updates from ENPS via MOS to the Nano-Prompter without any physical connection to the MOS server. Portaprompt has also developed an improved wireless remote prompter variable speed hand control. The small control has multiple functions to enable the presenter to move quickly around the scripts and run order, and it operates with an easy-to-use rotary prompter speed thumb wheel.

Also demonstrated at NAB, will be an improved MOS version of Portaprompt's WinDigi prompting software, specifically designed to interface with ENPS's Media Server Communications Protocol. This tight integration with WinDigi via the MOS protocol enables ENPS to control all the features of the WinDigi prompter automatically, improving efficiency of the prompting function.

The company will also unveil its new Quasar range of ultra-bright and ultra-light TFT color on camera teleprompter units in four sizes (12, 15, 17 and 20 inches). They're designed without a fan for silent running.

Also recently enhanced will be the Conference Display Stand, which can be preset for various heights. Each hand control can control up to 16 poles.

Portaprompt will be in booth SU9205.
