Autocue launch 'iAutocue' teleprompting App at IBC 2013
IBC 2013 Preview, Stand 11.F45 – Autocue, the world’s leading teleprompter manufacturer, will launch its first teleprompter app, ‘iAutocue’, at IBC 2013. iAutocue will be available from the App Store from 1st September and costs $5.
Mark Shoesmith, Autocue’s Hardware Director, explains, “iAutocue is a real game changer for prompting short pieces to camera in the field.”
iAutocue allows you to send wireless video from an iPad to an external teleprompter monitor. You can then use your iPad as an edit workstation, a prompt preview and a scroll control for that teleprompter.
The app also contains a new feature called “rehearsal mode”. This allows the presenter to video himself/herself from the iPad camera whilst reading the script from the app, and then immediately watch the recording back on the iPad.
Scripts can also be easily accessed on location and imported from a variety of external sources. There is a new drop box facility and scripts can also be pushed to the iPad from a web server.
Shoesmith continues, “Normally you need a swathe of kit and power sources to use a professional teleprompter in the field, even for short pieces to camera. The iAutocue app reduces this right down to a prompter and an iPad, all of which can fit in a single 1600 Peli case and be battery powered.”
The alternative configuration is to mount the iPad itself as the teleprompter monitor. In this scenario the speed of the text on the iPad can be controlled from an iPhone (via a separate iAutoscroll app), a rechargeable Bluetooth keyboard which can also be used to make script edits on the iPad, or a wired hand or foot control.
