ProPrompter App released
Bodelin Technologies has released ProPrompter, a teleprompter application for use with the iPhone or iPod touch. The application enables each mobile device to be used as a teleprompter, with options for screen scrolling, several speed presets, both landscape and portrait modes, and on-screen help. ProPrompter can also be adjusted for improved readability in brighter settings by changing background and text colors.
Users also have free access to the ProPrompter Producer script management website where they can host their text files. The iPhone can access each script instantly by refreshing the script list in the application.
To hold the iPhone while viewing the prompts, Bodelin has released the ProPrompter Wing and the ProMag. Using the application's mirror feature, the ProMag projects a magnified text from the iPhone screen onto a mirror in front of the camera lens. This makes the text twice the size of the iPhone screen. Alternatively, The ProPrompter Wing attaches the iPhone to an adjustable arm next to the camera, which holds the iPhone in landscape mode.
The ProPrompter application is available from the App Store for $10. The ProPrompter Wing and the ProMag are both available from the Bodelin website for $130 and $1000, respectively.
