Schnittpunkt UG, exclusive worldwide distributor for Bodelin Technologies, which manufactures the ProPrompter mobile teleprompters, has announced the first iPad mini teleprompter to begin shipping 15 March worldwide.
The model is called the ProPrompter HDi Pro2 (mini) and is almost identical to its iPad teleprompter, ProPrompter HDi Pro2 (iPad), said to be the first iPad teleprompter on the market.
The difference is the 8”X5.5” bracket made to accommodate the iPad mini and also work with other small tablet devices. The new ProPrompter HDi Pro2 (mini) kit features aluminium infusion beam splitter glass, impact and water resistant 16X9 HD hood, anti-reflection mask, camera bar for DSLR to mid sized cameras and a standard rail mount for ENG cameras.
Both the iPad and iPad mini models are pre-assembled, come in a military grade SKB case and have a five year warranty.
The new iPad mini bracket is also sold separately for off lens prompting as it has a ¼-20 tripod mount.
Customers who already own the ProPrompter HDi Pro2 can simply buy the iPad Mini bracket for their kit.
ProPrompters emerged at NAB 2002 with the first Pocket PC teleprompter and the first 6.5” LCD teleprompter. Both were sold as a complete turnkey system and thousands of those models are still in use today by field broadcast units worldwide. ProPrompter became the first professional teleprompter app in the iTunes app store and later the first universal app for iPhone and iPad to have built-in remote control. Bodelin Technologies makes each ProPrompter in their Lake Oswego, Oregon facilities.
