Autocue / Teleprompter : making life easier for on-camera presenters

Cameraperson / autocue operator’s view of autocue.

To help people who need to present a piece to camera – usually with their eyeline direct to camera, like a tv newsreader or social media video presenter – CreationVideo can provide an autocue, or teleprompter as it’s known in the US.

The presenter sees their script, scrolling upwards as they read it, on a monitor placed above the camera lens, or on a glass placed over the camera lens (mirroring a monitor).

The script is on our laptop, with an HDMI output to the monitor. It’s controlled by our autocue operator – or by someone on our client’s team, having had a 15 minute practice.

Autocue makes the presenter’s job much simpler because their script is scrolling at their reading speed – the operator is following them, not the other way around.

So the presenter appears to be looking straight into camera, and can take their time, resulting in a calm and authoritative delivery.

The pictures below, from our autocue shoots with clients around the world, show the operator’s and the presenter’s view.
