  • PT3500 15" Rod Mounted Teleprompter for Location and Studio

    Designed to be used in the field as well as in the studio, the ikan 15" 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 PT3500 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 5" and 8" rods for mounting the baseplate.

    For editing and displaying prompter text, PrompterPro3 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 PT3500 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 PT3500 includes 5" and 8" height adjustment rods for the baseplate, making the teleprompter more versatile for various sized cameras.
    15mm Rod System Design
    The PT3500 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 PT3500 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 PrompterPro3 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. The software is compatible with Mac OSX 10.7 and up (with 64-bit processor), as well as Windows XP, Vista, 7, and 8.

ikan PT3500 reviews

PT3500 Teleprompter & Rolling Hard Case Travel Kit is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hardware great; forget bundled software. The IKAN PT3500 is a solidly-built unit that looks like it will last for years. The case is well designed, and meant to travel with the silvered mirror in place (I have yet to try this, makes me nervous, frankly). Image quality is good, just a little light loss as expected. No internal reflections due to 100% coverage with nylon zipper enclosure. �Relatively easy to set up (allow 15 minutes).� Front-back position of the camera is simple to adjust, but camera height has only a few positions. �Monitor is the true outstanding feature - image quality is nice and bright and it has a dedicated button to flip left-right, so you don't have to depend on software to do the flipping. We're using this in a small studio for recording on-line courses, and this feature allows the presenter to see her Powerpoint slides directly from her laptop, no external "flip-box" needed. This will also enable remote interviews by Skype, etc. with screen sharing - this is a big plus, very few other prompters <$2000 have this. �On top of that, having an HDMI input is a real plus.� On the downside, the bundled software is not fully integrated with the product. It is an old version, delivered very unprofessionally on a home-made CD-ROM (see user photo). �I couldn't get it to install on either Mac or Windows. �The version included, Ver 3, is no longer supported, but when I downloaded the latest version from the developers, the serial number provided didn't "take". � I filed a ticket with B & H customer support, and this is the response I got from JakeB: "It has been brought to my attention you had placed an order for the Ikan kit which included the Pro3 software. You have been in contact with Larry on this just about an hour ago to see if possible to obtain the Pro4 software. Please be advised that this item is including only the Pro3 software at this time according to the manufacturer and according to our product page. Although this software is now considered dated, that is what we list per the manufacturer to be included. Should you wish to have the Pro4 software, it would need to be purchased separately." Luckily, I did reach out to the software developer, and they were kind enough to honor the serial number with the new, downloadable version of the software and I didn't have to buy it separately. �Unfortunately, though I appreciate the manufacturer honoring the purchase, I found that the Pro4 software is difficult to use. For example, I couldn't figure out how to get the talent to see a dedicated window with just the prompt text while the operator sees the prompt control screen.� My philosophy is that prompters are supposed to solve problems, not make problems. I spent a lot of time testing the prompter and trying to solve the software issues, but as you can see from the response quoted above, there was absolutely no help at all from B&H customer support. Thus the three stars. I ended up buying *not from B&H* a professional 3rd party software, so if you're considering this teleprompter, my advice would be to add $250+ to your budget for software so you can actually use it!
