Prompter/Eye Direct (Interrotron) LARGE SIZE

NEW!
  • Description
  • Rates & Packages

British made teleprompter device for mounting in front of a camera to facilitate the interviewer seeing the face of the presenter rather than a camera lens, to relax a nervous subject.  Unlike the Eye Direct, this has a universal system for holding a tablet iPad/iPhone of any size (the included adjustable tablet holder will accept any device from a small mobile phone to 10” tablet) to act as a prompter loaded with appropriate software.  However, as this unit is 2.2kg without the mirrors, we have elected to supply it without the 15mm bar mount clamp for safety and supply it instead with a light stand for operation.

Like the large size Eye Direct, this design incorporates a 140mm opening to suit larger lenses and unit assembles for easy transportation.

How it works

The interviewer and subject see each other through the two-way mirror, but the subject is actually looking down the lens, resulting in direct eye contact with the audience.

It relaxes the subject and allows them to deliver powerful stories and credible interviews.

There are no additional cameras, TV screens or technology required.

The Vox Box Pro works will all large cameras including Red/Alexa digital film cameras, full size documentary  cameras (e.g. PDW-F55 camcorders) as well as compact DSLR and large sensor cameras.

Use as an iPad/iPhone/Tablet Prompter.

The Vox Box Pro incorporates a universal phone/table mount (the included adjustable tablet holder will accept any device from a small mobile phone to 10” tablet) to turn this device into an iPad teleprompter too at no additional charge.

In order to use this as a prompter, you will need to supply your own iPad device and download a prompter app like ProPrompter Studio by Bodelin, Inc. https://appsto.re/gb/va2w2.i and you use an iPhone to wirelessly control the speed of the iPad scrolling via Wi-Fi! We also recommend ‘PromptSmart Pro’ (Android/iOS).

Download the App and your script, configure it with your phone and then hire the device from VMI and save money on prompting services!

Use a light stand for universal setup

The Vox Box Pro is designed to be mounted on 15mm bars but we felt that the weight of the device (2.2kg plus mirrors plus prompter), which would be mounted at the front of the lens at the end might provide too much torque for lightweight bars and may even prevent the tripod from balancing properly.

As a result, we decided not to offer the 15mm bars fitting with our kits but instead offer a light stand as a mounting solution.  This means that you place the Vox Box Pro in front of the camera and shoot through it for an easier setup. A light stand will now be included with the order at a small additional charge but feel free to advise if you don't want this.
