Teleprompters are cool. Putting a half-silvered mirror in front of the camera so the talent can read magically floating white letters scrolling upward while looking straight down the barrel of the camera lens is a great way to save the trouble of memorizing lengthy scripts and make shoots go faster, smoother and better.
Even without a mirror, you can put a laptop above or below the camera to achieve almost the same thing.
Professional teleprompters cost too much, and some aren’t designed very well. They usually run you more than a thousand dollars (though the expensive ones usually include a small dedicated monitor and/or box with mirror).
We consider this highway robbery. Small LCD monitors can be purchased for under $100 . . . and half-silvered mirrors and boxes are just not that expensive ;-)
PromptDog is a software-only teleprompter designed by DVcreators.net, one of the world’s most respected video training companies. We created PromptDog because we just couldn't find a decent teleprompter for our own shoots. We’ve tweaked this software extensively - sometimes right on the set - until it worked perfectly to our very demanding standards.
And now we’re offering it to you . . . at a fraction of the price of competing, inferior solutions!
