ikan PT3700 17" Rod Mounted Teleprompter for Location and Studio
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.

E-Image EI-GH25-Pedestal Kit with Head & Dolly
Rolling to your next camera position is a lot easier than picking up your tripod and carrying it, especially with a heavy camera in studio configuration, but with the E-Image EI-GH25-Pedestal Kit you can do just that. This pedestal kit provides you with a tripod system and rolling spreader suitable for using an ENG/EFP/compact camcorder in a studio configuration. The legs feature a pneumatic center column with 13" of travel and the control wheel familiar to pedestal users. The center column pneumatically assists with raising/lowering the height of cameras and accessories weighing up to 55 pounds.
The included fluid head features a 100mm half ball for quick leveling on the legs' center column, and it features 15 steps of counterbalance for cameras. The head features 7 grades of drag adjustment for both pan and tilt, and a 0 setting for free movement. The head's included sliding balance plate features almost 3" of balance adjustment and is indexed so you can quickly reset the balance as you change configurations. The two included panhandles feature telescoping length adjustment. Rounding out the pedestal kit is the rolling spreader, which supports the legs, head and your camera, and features non-marring wheels with individual foot activated wheel locks. The kit packs away into the included soft-sided travel case so you can pack everything up and take it with you.
