Autocue is shaking up the world of prompting with the announcement it is shaking up its entire range with a focus on speed, simplicity, and sustainability.
The Autocue range now comprises three distinct series of teleprompters. For the broadcast market, the Pioneer Series offers broadcast-standard prompting monitors and live editing software with newsroom and PowerPoint integration designed to support everything from live events to local news, said Autocue.
The company said it has made sustainability a core feature of the range. The prompters have been built with sturdy and recyclable metal housings and locally sourced shared components.
Autocue described the Pioneer Series as offering complete compatibility for live and as-live productions. The prompter includes a selection of video inputs including SDI, while the software is icon-based for easy reference and includes integration with popular MOS newsroom systems, as well as NDI output for IP integration.
It also has unique PowerPoint integration, which automatically creates a script from the slide notes and gives the option to show slide previews to the presenter alongside the text, said the company.
“Every Autocue product is designed with our ‘3S’ principles in mind: Speed, Simplicity, and Sustainability,” said Philip Dalgoutte, product manager – Autocue. “With tool-less setup, minimal parts, robust components, and intuitive software, the new range is easy to use and customise for individual productions. And backward compatibility with our previous Autocue Starter, Professional, and Master Series, ensures users can integrate with existing hardware and controllers, making the transition easy and cost-effective.”
