The Telmax EL17 is a 17" entry-level studio teleprompter that's almost identical to the Telmax G2 and T2 pro model prompters. The difference is mainly in the design of the camera mount sled and the mirror enclosure, while the monitor and mirror are absolutely the same.

The sled on the pro models is removable and adjustable into many positions. The EL17 sled is adjustable into two positions, but these are the two most common positions generally used. Plus the adjustment method is simple and neat. You simply need to remove four red thumbscrews, and then just flip the sled into a vertical position for one height, and horizontal for another. Running 8" long, the sled supports any camera from small to full-size ENG. The length of the prompter itself is 18". A benefit, however, of this more compact sled is that the entire prompter can be fit into a smaller case, allowing for easier storage and transport. One case you might want to consider that's ideal for the EL17 is the Porta Brace PB-2750F.

The EL17 is designed to be used on a tripod, and features a sliding plate on the bottom with 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded mounting holes, allowing for compatibility with all tripods. Simply screw your tripod plate into one of these holes and mount the prompter on your tripod. Then you can adjust the sliding plate backward and forward as you see fit.

The included beamsplitter mirror features a 70/30 transparency and measures 14 x 16", which captures the monitor screen completely. The reading range is 22 ft but has successfully been tested at even farther distances. The EL17 comes with a cloth hood that attaches around the edges and covers your lens to block out light. Additionally, sideblinders are included to block out unwanted light from the mirror. The difference in comparison to the pro models is that the latter also have ABS plastic enclosures in addition to the cloth hood. The included monitor features a VGA input which can be connected to your desktop or laptop directly or via an adapter.

The EL17 also comes with the comprehensive and intuitive Telmax ZaPrompt Pro promoting software (Mac/Win), turning the system into an all-around pro prompting solution. ZaPrompt Pro offers efficient features such as a jump-in / jump-out function that lets you exit the scrolling screen, make edits, and then come right back to the spot where you left off. Another feature is the ability to pre-assign actions, such as pauses and scroll speed, for presentations that you plan to give on repeated occasions. ZaPrompt Pro also loads scripts in small chunks so that there's no buffering prior to scrolling. And yet another feature is the ability to flip the image on the monitor while keeping it upright on your computer, so that the operator can read the script correctly while sitting behind the computer. ZaPrompt Pro comes with a license that can be used on up to four computers at the same time.
