A very simple prompter system which is supported by the 15mm bars of the camera system.  As such, it offers universal compatibility for all types of cameras (DSLR to Systems Cameras), which VMI uses for our own video productions and can be used with the regular (10″) iPad or (13″) iPad Pro, or indeed any other tablets. Please note iPad is not included.

The system uses 15mm bars to connect a camera to the Rig which comprises of Glass Frame, T10 glass reflectors, Folding Cloth Hood (which simply laces around the lens to prevent light entering the rear of the hood) and Mounting Clamps all designed to integrate together for ease of transport.

The 365-001/13 (13” rig) with 2 x T13 glass reflectors (one to go & one spare), short carbon and alloy rigging rods, fixing screws and a lightweight carrying case which can accommodate all 365 / 465 components.

Note that this system requires that you provide a camera with 15″ bars system and a suitable iPad/Tablet.

Use your own iPad/iPhone/Tablet Prompter and download ProPrompter Software.

You may be interested to learn that all recent VMI videos have been shot using this prompting system and we can confirm that it works extremely well.  Use your own iPad and download the ProPrompter software (IOS/Android) onto both your phone and tablet.

The prompting system incorporates a universal phone/table mount (the included adjustable tablet holder will accept any device though a 10” or 13″ tablet works best and you will need to install the software onto both your smartphone and also your tablet, so that the phone volume controls adjust the pan speed on the tablet via WiFi.

  • Download the App to both devices.  (You will need to buy it only once).
  • Write your script on your PC/Mac.
  • Email the script to your phone.
  • Copy it using your phone and then paste the text into a new script on the App on your phone.
  • Configure the program with your phone.
  • Configure the program with your tablet (use 96 point font and mirrored text).
  • Then ‘find’ the tablet device with the phone application.
  • Lastly, use the Remote icon to run the selected script with the connected Portaprompter.  The script will then run simultaneously on both devices and you can control the pan speed using the volume up down buttons remotely.
  • Then hire the device from VMI and save money on prompting services!
