reflections on the glass

By Gina
Rated 1 out of 5
Date: 2022-03-31

I have purchased two of these newer versions of the Ikan teleprompters and they must be using different glass now. Anything displayed in the prompter causes a weird reflective glare. The older style of Ikan teleptompters with the magnetic hoods never had that problem. I own ten of the old style magnetic hood Ikan prompters and loved them. Never had a problem before I started using the new updated version of these prompters with the rubber hood. They must use different glass. Get the old ikan prompters if they are still available and avoid these.

Great Piece of Equipment

We had been searching for a teleprompter for a while. We looked at some of the smaller models that utilize smart phones and realized that they just would not meet our needs. We changed our budget and looked at the professional offerings. We started with the tech specs and then the reviews. We decided on the Ikan PT4700. It works just the way we had hoped. It's easy to read at a distance and has the capability to modify one's script, speed and font. We would have given it 5 stars but there were two issues that one wouldn't discover until a purchase was made. There is no concise owners manual. Ikan does have an online help page, but it might take a bit longer to get a response than one would like. And you will need an up to date computer to utilize the unit. A cell phone won't cut it. Other than that, it's a great product. I would recommend this to my friends.

It is hard to believe that you can get a 3G teleprompter at this price point. We mounted this to our Grass Valley LDX86s with Fujinon glass, and it works great. We had a lot of doubts, but are incredibly happy with this purchase.

Love it

I have tried a lot of those promoters in the past and this one is finally working exactly as I expected. I suggest to use the app Power Prompter 2 which is so easy to use. Same as for prompter, I have tried many many solutions and this software is just the best.

Product received in good condition. Teleprompter design is good except the that the black fabric that covers the lens is too thick & hard & opening is not big enough for some lens hood. Should use stretchable cloth instead & make the opening slightly bigger to accommodate different lens /hood size. ( see photo ) I don't like the prompter software provided. Should improved further on the function & flexibility. Love the hardcase, very solid. Other than that all is good, love the teleprompter, easy to assemble & nice design.
