ikan PT-ELITE-V2-RC overview

  • 1Description

The ikan Elite Version 2 is a more flexible upgrade to the original Elite prompter, featuring an adjustable/foldable glass frame and quick-release camera platform. Offering universal tablet support, it works with all standard-size tablets ranging from 5 x 7.5 to 8 x 10.5" in size, including all iPads (except the iPad Pro), Android and Windows tablets (except Surface Pro), and Amazon Fire. The Elite V2 is a 15mm rod-based system, equipped with a raised, quick-release camera platform above the rods, and with a tripod-mount platform underneath the rods.

An Elite Remote Control designed for use specifically with iPads is included. To use this remote you would need the Elite Prompter App, which is available sold separately at the App Store, Google Play, and other outlets. Otherwise you can use any other prompter app compatible with your tablet.

The range of supported cameras sizes runs from small mirrorless to mid-level camcorder sizes. Successfully tested cameras include the Sony a7S on the small end, Canon C100 in the mid-range, and Panasonic DVX200 on the large end. The Elite V2 uses a scientific-grade 70/30 glass, housed in an adjustable frame with a magnetic hood. The tripod-mount platform underneath the rods has a wide design and features multiple mounting holes, allowing for better stability and balance.

The Elite V2 ships to you in a custom-cut foam that you can install in any size-compatible hard case.

Note: For use with the iPad Pro, Surface Pro, and other larger tablets, please check out the ikan Elite Pro.

    Elite V2 Universal Tablet Teleprompter with Remote is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Terrific prompter! It is small, light and worked well with my GH4. I purchased the $11.00 IKan app and it worked great. The font was able to scale so it could be read from a good distance. While it allowed me to insert the script easily and make changes on the fly, when I used the remote the blue tooth keyboard disengaged. To get it back on to make script changes I had to turn the tablet on and off. That killed some time and is the main reason I can't give the prompter a 5.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Teleprompter The Elite V2 Teleprompter is very easy to setup and use. Setup takes last than 10 minutes to setup. The companion app for the iPad is very easy to use and the bluetooth makes controlling the scripts a breeze.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish we'd purchased long ago! First teleprompter, so this was a learning proposition. Well worth the trouble. All the parts are very nicely made, with lots of machined aluminum. We found that the camera support was a little low for an a6500, even at its highest adjustment. The camera lens wasn't centered in the rectangular opening on the back, it was low enough that we would see some black along the bottom of the frame, and while this could be adjusted out with a little patience, we ended up just mounting a ball head on the back so we could easily adjust the camera however we wanted. A 3/8-16 x 3.5" bolt and nut/washer (Home Depot) was all that we needed to have a fully height-adjustable mount that we could easily dial-in perfectly, and the as nice as the built-in camera mount is - and it is nice! - we like the ball head better. It's just easier. The hood snaps on magnetically, very easy to setup. We won't need to take ours on location, but if you do then the included precut foam insert that's sized to fit a Pelican case is pretty deluxe. We're using the Teleprompter app from JoeAllenPro on an iPad, and it's easy to use and full featured, or so it seems to us given our prior pack of prompter experience. Suffice it to say that it's working well and we can't think of any features that we think should be there that aren't. We paired the iPad with dropbox on a Mac, and now when we save a script as a txt file in the dropbox folder, it's instantly available on the iPad. So edits to the script don't feel like a big hassle, it takes seconds (well, plus the actual editing time). The remote is a lifesaver. The one that shipped with our unit (July 2018) differs slightly from the remote that iKan's website offers support for. Very similar, but not the same, and we had to call iKan to figure out how to get it to pair with the iPad. In fact, the guys at iKan had to figure it out while we were on the phone with them, so it must have just been updated. To get it to pair, press and hold the two single arrow buttons at the top of the remote (just below play/pause) simultaneously, until the blue LED lights. Then the iPad will see it. Once over that hurdle, it works perfectly. We didn't realize just how vital that remote is, if you have it you'll wonder how you'd manage to use the thing without it. Even with two people - one reading the prompter and one controlling the iPad - the remote is essential. Trying to use the prompter by yourself would be super tedious without the remote. With the camera at 12' or so, you cannot tell the talent is reading. All in all, super nice product, very glad we purchased.
