PRomptBox SF179NOIR Overview

  • 1Description

Teleprompters have been normally restricted to studios or tripod mounted field productions, however, PromptBox's PRo Pak PRompter ONE Folding Mobile Teleprompter allows you to bring a self-contained, lightweight, tablet-based prompting solution into the field without disrupting the quick environment of handheld production. The PRompter ONE has an adjustable top which can natively hold tablets ranging in size from 7 to 9 inches, providing clear display of text without light leaks. Since the tablet uses its own programming to display text and is powered internally, the PRompter ONE system does not require external tethering for power or data. Smartphones can also be used in lieu of a tablet with the included smartphone accessory shelf.

The PRo Pak PRompter ONE can be mounted on most camera setups ranging in size from DSLRs to studio and broadcast cameras (with lens sizes up to 98mm). When used with traditional camcorders, the PRompter ONE can be secured to a standard cold shoe. For smaller cameras like DSLRs, the mounting bracket can be reversed to support the base of the camera with a "pistol grip" form factor. The complete PRompter ONE setup weighs in at 2.1 pounds while housing a 7" tablet, so it can be maneuvered easily in run-and-gun situations, even with a smaller camera. When not in use, the prompter assembly folds flat for storage and can be reassembled quickly to minimize down-time on shoots.

    PRomptBox SF179NOIR Reviews

    PRo Pak PRompter ONE Folding Mobile Teleprompter for 7-9" Tablets is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Convenient and portable. If you're looking for a small, compact and convenient teleprompter that is easy to set up, this is the one for you. My only complaint is that it's hard to read in bright sunlight. That was the ONLY reason for not giving it 5-stars.Then again, if you want a prompter that's meant to use outdoors be prepared to open your checkbook. Otherwise, it's a great little teleprompter that fits in just about any backpack or suitcase. For the price, you can't beat it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well. But instructions could be better. I use this teleprompter with my Panasonic HCV 770 Camcorder and my Kindle Fire HD 7 Everything fits well eventually, but the instructions and mounting options are not very clear or thorough. Once set up it does the job well. Because the HCV770 has a structurally limited hot shoe, mounted in a less than ideal position for this unit, it's necessary to either jury-rig the mounting or find a way to mount using the hole at the bottom of the teleprompter box. Fortunately I had a shoe extension mount which overcame these issues. I added a piece of black cardboard with a hole for the camera lens to block out the teleprompter opening at the back. I am concerned that the glass mirror/reflector could break if dropped. I think that plexiglass would have been a better choice of material for a portable unit. Despite these qualifications I would recommend it for the application.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than what I was doing I used to hold an Apple iPad under the camera lens for the person reading/speaking to read - using a prompting app. This had a couple of challenges. While it does take a few minutes to set up, the eye-line to the lens is a LOT better and the person reading looks a lot more like they are not reading. Need to get a keyboard. Wish there was a simple blue tooth remote to start/stop scrolling and maybe change scrolling speed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The prompter One made it so easy to say my lines! I used the Promptbox as an on-camera spokesman for my recent successful crowd-funding video. I am not usually an on-camera performer but the Promptbox helped me deliver the script perfectly. It's portability was amazing, allowing us to shoot on a beach, at the edge of a lagoon, in a redwood grove and several other equally as remote locations. My cameraman could do it all: shoot and run the Promptbox. I would recommend it to a friend who shoots video with on-camera talent, both professional and amateur.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect solution for Low-Budget and field TelePrompting When we're on location or in need of quick telePrompting scenarios we now rely on this wonderful portable TelePrompter PRomptBox. Everyone knows how easy it is to set-up and tear-down, get the text and change the text. Because of the technology everyone uses this day and age, this unit has become just part of the gear that goes out with our camera package. It doesn't require a professional Teleprompter operator to work it and our clients just LOVE it. I think we get more repeat and recommended clients because we always have the PRomptBox with us. In time I'm sure this will be as much of normal gear for all Production Companies that offer ENG and EFP packages. I wish I had this 10 years ago !!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product The promptbox was very easy to assemble. I have a Sony 4k professional camera and connected to it with ease. If you are in need of a portable light weight prompter, this is the product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to UseEven with Inexperienced Actors Highly Recommended! I directed 10 scenes that were being filmed for a special project. None of the actors were pros, and none had experience working on camera with a teleprompter of any kind. Once they understood the need to stay focused on the words, and that the cameraman would adapt the speed of word flow to their reading, they quickly adapted. We were able to use two of these mobile teleprompters very successfully for our two-camera shoot. They made it easy for our cast, who were afraid of forgetting their lines. The units were quite compact and fit easily onto the top of the cameras. It was very easy to prep scripts and to edit them on the spot as needed for rewrites, then get them right back on the screen and ready to go.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from PRo Pak PRompter This product is well made and works great. The down side to the prompter is that assembly is required. I wish they would have created it with hinges so that it could easily fold away. Other than that its very nice!
