Teleprompter Rentals

cameramountsidefull1000Third Born Entertainment, an Edmonton video production company, now offers teleprompter services for corporate and commercial clients. Designed with the needs of executives and business operators in mind, Third Born Entertainment has made it even easier for companies to convey their message on camera.

A teleprompter, or autocue, is a display device that prompts the person speaking with an electronic visual text of a speech or script. Using a teleprompter is similar to using cue cards. The screen is in front of, and usually below, the lens of a professional video camera, and the words on the screen are reflected to the eyes of the presenter using a sheet of clear glass or a specially prepared beam splitter. Light from the performer passes through the front side of the glass into the lens, while a shroud surrounding the lens and the back side of the glass prevents unwanted light from entering the lens.

Because the speaker does not need to look down to consult written notes, he appears to have memorized the speech or to be speaking spontaneously, looking directly into the camera lens. Cue cards, on the other hand, are always placed away from the lens axis, making the speaker look at a point beside the camera, which leaves an impression of distraction.

We are including a teleprompter as part of our video production package, including short-notice and time-sensitive requests. For more information about Third Born Entertainment’s teleprompter or production services please contact us!
