Bodelin Technologies will be showing their new ProPrompter HDi (http://www.bodelin.com/proprompter/ipad_remote), a teleprompter specifically made for the iPad and the ProPrompter Presidential, the first live speech teleprompter made for the iPad.
The ProPrompter App, now optimized for iPad, will also introduce Remote Sync and Presidential Sync as free updates for current users of the ProPrompter App. No AC power or external batteries needed as the iPad has a 10-hour battery.
The ProPrompter sports a camera bar, made of light, yet sturdy, aircraft aluminum, which attaches to the base of Pro, and most, consumer cameras. Next is a custom cut of 16:9 studio quality beam splitter glass encased in a padded frame and set in a high impact ABS hood. The key to the ProPrompter HDi hardware is a specially designed iPad specific bracket to securely hold the iPad without slippage when shooting handheld, jib or with a steadicam, according to Bodelin.
This kit also includes the ProPrompter anti-reflection mask and the new ProPrompter handheld grip with quarter-inch tripod mount. Setup is about 20 seconds and comes in a newly designed waterproof military grade case. The customer provides their iPad and the ProPrompter App is available in the Apple App Store (US$9.99). The NAB show special pricing for the ProPrompter HDi is $850.
The new ProPrompter Presidential models will come in two DIY kits that will sell for $299 and $499 and two complete kits that will sell for $399 and $699. These use the same studio quality 16:9 beam splitter glass and utilize the same iPad specific bracket to securely hold the iPad without slippage. iPads and App are not included.
