GVM TQ-M Overview

The GVM Teleprompter TQ-M has a traditional tripod-mount prompter design and supports up to 10.5" tablets and smartphones. It includes an iOS/Android GVM prompting app and comes with a Bluetooth remote control that works with the app.

Although traditional, the design is compact and lightweight, consisting mainly of a slim base with a camera bracket on the rear and tablet holder on the front. A phone holder is included that can be installed instead of the tablet holder to support most smartphones. The colorless beamsplitter glass with multi-layer dielectric coating for light loss prevention is positioned in the middle with a hood to keep light out of your camera's lens. Virtually any small- or mid-sized camera with any lens diameter can be lined up behind the glass. The camera bracket can be rotated to support compact cameras on one side and larger ones on the other.

The camera bracket can also be moved forward and backward to properly line up your camera, and it's easily secured tool-free via a knob on the bottom. The tablet cradle on the front can similarly be adjusted forward and backward to line up different-sized tablets and phones to the beamsplitter glass. And the beamsplitter glass can be tilted forward and backward to your talent's needs to more clearly reflect the text from your mobile app.

The GVM app allows you to enter text and adjust font size, playback speed, and background color. The included remote control lets you adjust the scroll speed as well as start and pause scrolling remotely.

The main bracket features 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded holes on the bottom for mounting compatibility with virtually all tripods, and included 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 thumbscrews secure your camera on top.

For easier transport, the prompter breaks down and the different components can be packed away more compact.

GVM TQ-M Reviews

Requires patience and tolerance.

It's a difficult review to make because I don't want to say bad things. (1)This teleprompter comes from a different era (the past). It's big ( great) feels solid, but clunky, heavy, made for bigger cameras, it comes from a time when you could dedicate a whole afternoon to do a talking head project. (2) It has to be disassembled for transport and its 2 screws are not thumb screws, you need a hex key, you need to make sure you don't loose those in-between. (3) the mirror isn't angle adjustable - if you want to frame for a low angle for example, you may have a problem. Its positive is that it's large enough to still catch some text from extreme angles (4) the camera mount holes are right at the edge of the plate, all the weight of the camera and the lens hangs on the very tip of the mount bracket. Big oversight. See pic. (4b) the mounting screws are a bit too short, the arm is thick, there's rubber padding too, the screw doesn't reach deep enough (5) There's no height adjustment for the camera, you have the two arms positions, and while those might work 80% of the time, still feels limited. The other side of the camera arm will always be in the way, a useless appendix, and it's going to stab you in the neck if you want to look through the camera viewfinder. (6) don't install the app from their website, you don't know what you'll get, install it form the Play Store. (7) the remote has two buttons, they both do the same, play/pause. (8) there's no fast forward, no going back option from the remote just play or pause. that's it. (9) text scroll speed adjustments need to be made on the app (9b) text color and background are preset to certain combinations, there's no option to independently choose one or the other. (10) the most egregious of all, every time you start the app, a useless flash screen with self promotion holds you prisoner for 5 seconds, which you can skip, but in a run and gun world, it's misguided (11) The hood is insufficient, doesn't cover the sides enough, doesn't drop all the way to the tablet (12) for a bigger tablet, just at the capacity limit for the holder, it is really hard to put it in and get it out (13) the phone mount, it's very likely that the holder grip will press some side buttons on the phone, you'll have to mount it off center, but at least the useful area is quite large on the mirror (14) the corner of the table holder are a light grey color, they reflect in the mirror, design flaw, poor choice (15) congrats if you bought it for 100 USD or less, it may do the job, but don't expect too much from it, you just bought an expensive two way mirror or 40-60 sheet of glass, I hope. (16) this review was written within 2h of assembling it, without real life use, but not very optimistic about it, I have used other teleprompters. (17) I kind of knew that I would have to rebuild this, that the only useful thing is the large mirror with the frame. (18) Despite all this, it can work ! yes has some shortcomings, but it's better than nothing, but sure we aim for more. 100$ teleprompter should pay for itself in half a job. For me it's a great DIY - tweak project. Good luck !

Good job done

I got this TelePrompTer to use while I Stream as well as reading scripts for YouTube. Definitely helps me be more efficient when I make my videos and stream. Being able to look at the lens and see what my stream looks like at the same time is very helpful. Very Easy & Straight forward to set up.

Easy use

The teleprompter has been an absolute Godsend for my online tutorials. I can prepare what I want to say to my audience before hand and not have to cut and re-record constantly or look back at my prompt cards like I used to. The scrolling speed of the text can be managed and stopped for practical demonstrations. The prompter is a convenient, parctial size and easy to read. The best thing is that it is within most peoples' budgets allowing them to work like total professionals.

Does exactly what it says

This teleprompter is great, it fits my iPad. Looking for a teleprompter that was able to hold my iPad pro was a difficult task and most teleprompters would start over $500. The remote is easy to use, allows you to adjust scrolling speed on the fly and works flawlessly. The reflection quality of the glass is great, very little visibility to what is behind the glass and the hood blocks out all rear light that could bleed through and impact being able to read lines. Highly recommend this teleprompter for quality and ease of use. Does not require a rail support system or a separate tripod.

Flimsy

Kinda disappointed with the angle of the mirror as its so tilted that you have to slightly tilt your camera, also there is like a 2mm gap between the mirror holder and the base plate, its super flimsy, the screws provided are too long i think..also the socks is so huge that its going to hang around and block your lens fov...

Great Price, but needed to modify it for DSLR

The hood is too bulky for a DSLR on either one of the mounts. It works well for me now but I had to fashion a wire frame that I inserted under the hood to keep the extra material out of the camera frame.

good screen size

I has bought a Neweer teleprompter before for my phone. But with my camera it was too far away and hard to read. With this one I can use a bigger iPad screen and be able to read from further away with a bigger font.

Works really well with an iPad

Bought this for a filmed interview and it worked really well. The app was also easy to use and the remote was great for controlling the speed of the text.

Has anyone tried this using a smart phone (iPhone) for recording video (instead of a camera)? Any issues?
Asked by: Peter
Victor - Down below, Robyn asks the same question, and Jabarih says it's possible. So, does the camera mount allow for using a smart phone adapter, or no? I don't want to use a prompter app in my iPhone, as that would be tiny and therefore very difficult to see, when at a distance where I can be framed waist-up.

Is there a suitable case for purchase that can be used for storage and transport of the GVM TQ-M? I didn’t see one on the manufacturers website, but maybe there is a product on this site that can serve this purpose.
Asked by: S M
There isn't a specific case for the GVM Teleprompter TQ-M. Since the teleprompter's dimension are 19.7 x 10.4 x 10.0", you would need to use a case that is at least 19.7 inches long. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/products/Hard-Watertight-Cases/ci/16460/N/3513622974?filters=fct_interior-length_3129%3A20in-51-cm

Does it work with a razer kiyo webcam?
Asked by: Tiago
You can mount the camera on top of a monitor, a table or attach it to a tripod by detaching the L-stand that comes with the Razer Kiyo Pro. However prompters are deigned to work with Cameras and camcorders. The wide angle view of a webcam may show the sides of the prompter in the camera view.
