Designed to be used in the field as well as in the studio, the ikan 17" Rod Mounted Teleprompter is lightweight, and quick to set up. Right out of the box, you can use the teleprompter with almost any camcorder that has a flat base. To use with a DSLR camera, or any other camera with a shorter footprint, the included special DSLR shelf can be fastened to the end of the camera base-plate in order to move your camera's lens closer to the prompter glass for optimal performance.

The PT3700 Teleprompter's hardware is based on 15mm rods. This allows the monitor, the prompter glass, and the camera baseplate to be set up quickly, without requiring tools. Each component can easily be moved individually to adjust for different setups. To accommodate cameras with different heights, ikan includes 3, 5, and 8" height adjustment rods for mounting the baseplate.

For editing and displaying prompter text, PrompterPro 4 software is included. To ensure compatibility with different workflows, the software works with both PC and Mac computers. The monitor has Composite BNC, VGA, and HDMI inputs to accept video signals from your computer and other video sources as well.

Adjustable Glass Frame

The adjustable glass frame on the PT3700 allows for fast and easy set up. The frame can also be folded to make the teleprompter compact and easy to transport.

Dual Purpose Base Plate Design

The Dual Purpose Base plate supports various cameras, DSLR's and small to midsized cameras. The base plate comes with a DSLR Shelf which allows you to put a DSLR camera at the very edge of the base plate to get closer to the glass if needed.

Height Adjustment Rods

The PT3700 includes 3, 5, and 8" height adjustment rods for the baseplate, making the teleprompter more versatile for various sized cameras.

15mm Rod System Design

The PT3700 is based on a 15mm rod system design, making it lightweight, easy to use, and quick to set up.

High Quality 70/30 Teleprompter Glass

The high quality 70/30 teleprompter glass provides a balance between reflection and pass-through without distorting the image. This high quality glass allows your camera to have a clear picture, while providing reflection you need to read the text.

Ships in Reusable Foam

The PT3700 is shipped in reusable custom cut foam which will help keep the kit safe and organized when you set it up or break it down. The custom cut foam can also be repurposed to perfectly fit in the SKB I Series 2918-10 Waterproof Hard Case.

Includes Software for Mac or PC

The PrompterPro 4 Teleprompting software for Mac and PC are included with this kit. This software offers a full text editor, vertical and horizontal screen flip, real-time text updates and live prompter mode for optimal control.

Asked by: CHAHAUT
This Teleprompter comes with PrompterPro 3.0 Teleprompting Software which works with both a Mac and PC. We have Multimedia Controllers from Contour Design that work with the included software and is compatible with both Mac and PC as well. The Shuttle-Xpress would be a great choice.

Does the software support Dual monitors? The software does not mention it.

Dual monitor support would be a feature of the computer being used. If the computer supports dual monitors the software can send the signal to both.

CAN I ALSO USE THIS SETUP TO BE AN OVER/UNDER LENS PROMPTER? I have a Reflecmedia Light Ring for Green Screen. What else would I need to be able to use the included monitor over or under the lens? Perhaps the smaller 15" would be better?

Your recommended accessory tripod is an E-Image EK60AAM, with a weight capacity of 18 pounds. But this rig weighs 23 pounds... without a camera. Are we sure of this?
Asked by: jeff
Hmmm, thanks a great question Jeff, B&H makes recommendations on their own, I'm really not certain why they suggested that tripod.
