    Autocue/QTV OCU-SSP17 reviews

    Starter Series 17" Teleprompter Package is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great prompter - Ergonomic nightmare! The prompter works great. Nice big clean image and software does what I need it to do. Now for the bad: The connectors to the monitor are very hard to get to making it neccessary to remove the monitor from the bracket, connect cables then reattach. this makes the quick setup not so quick after all and kind of a pain. Especially if you work with it on a regular basis. I suppose I'll figure out some sort of work-around, but they should have addressed this back in the design phase... also you need a choice of light baffel material. The large one that comes with the package is so big it drapes all around my tiny MiniDV camera making it difficult to find connectors/switches. A smaller one designed address this issue would be great and not too hard to do.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Very useable for a university student run TV station. Very quick setup as completely flat packed in the box. Just a few finger screws and you are ready to mount the camera. Can be used in the field if you are very prepared but not recommended. All aluminum construction is very sturdy and well made. Two problems: 1. Monitors are quite cheap, power buttons failed within a week. I figured out a work around, but this should not happen. The button would stick in so it could not engage on or off. A plus is the monitor mount is a standard VERSA mount so you can use your own. 2. The fabric on the top of the teleprompter is a bit transparent, if you are under a bright light you can see the reflection inside the teleprompter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Basic Prompter We are a TV station and usually use the higher end teleprompter solutions. However, for this job we needed a cheaper solution for use at one of our remote bureaus. If you need it to talk with a newsroom computer system like iNews this is not for you. If you are OK with exporting from your newsroom system and then loading it into the prompter then this will be fine. The quality of the monitor is low to average but it works fine. The glass and hood are good. A good choice if you need a fairly low coast prompting solution.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for in studio, but not portable This is a decent starter prompter for in studio use only. It was fairly well made except for the monitor. I thought the monitor was a bit cheaply made. The monitor cannot reverse the text. So your prompter software will have to be able to do this. If you need a portable prompter that's easy to setup and strike, for use on locations, I would not recommend this model. I returned the one I purchased to exchange it for a more expensive, portable model.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mixed Firstly, I've ordered a number of items over the past two years from B&H and have found their service and timeliness of delivery (Canada) to be first rate. I've had little experience with teleprompters prior to ordering the Series 17. The unit arrived well packaged. The first problem I encountered is the lack of clear instructions on assembly. At first it appeared that the instructions were for a different unit until eventually I figured out what was being referenced. The most help was from an Autocue video on YouTube - I'm not sure why it wasn't included on the CD. The unit was partially but incorrectly assembled - the monitor, for instance, was installed backwards. The software program is a simple scrolling program which is fine but it's very difficult to find the sweet spot to to get the proper scrolling speed - a big time waster if you're rushed! However, when you do eventually get it to work it does a nice job and my on-camera crew enjoy the ease of reading.
