Standard Teleprompter Rental
We are looking forward to that particular job and to meeting others who might need a teleprompter. Its use has been recognized as an asset to any project. Delivery of any speech by the inexperienced or by one who revels in being in the spotlight is enhanced. If you are calling to rent such a unit you already know how it can help make your undertaking so much better and how it can calm the nerves of the uninitiated.
For 10 hours – the unit is delivered with a professional operator.
Interrotron Mark III Rental Pair (Director’s Unit and Talent Unit)
Price: $845 delivered with an experienced technician. ($65 hr OT after 10 hrs)
($65 hr OT after 10 hrs)
The Interrotron Mark III contains two separate units:
The Director’s Unit comes with its own camera, lens, tripod, hood, mirror, mounting plate and a professional 16 X 9 camera monitor. It can accept any signal your camera outputs (HDMI, HDSDI, Component, Composite). Thus, your director not only is “face to face” with the talent directly through the lens but he/she can simultaneously judge framing, exposure, depth of field, focus, color saturation, etc.
The Talent Unit is built on a modified, professional teleprompter platform. But the standard definition VGA teleprompter monitor is replaced by a large 16 X 9 full HD monitor, sized to correctly display a human face in the correct proportion. Our sliding 15mm, double gold plate mounting system will easily accommodate any camera and also support your zoom lens if desired.
Each unit comes with its own rolling Pelican case. It’s delivered in your city by a trained technician who will set up and operate the unit and then at the end of your shoot, repack both units and return them.
Presidential Teleprompter Rental (aka Speech Prompter)
For 10 hours, delivered by a professional operator.
The Presidential Prompter is the standard device of choice.for speaking to an audience from a podium. Chances are you have seen these in action on TV. Every president since Eisenhower has used one.
It consists of two glass panels on thin steel rods which are positioned one on either side of the podium. The audience can see right through the clear glass so the speaker’s face is not blocked from view. But, the speaker can clearly see his/her text reflected in the two-way mirrored glass form their vantage point behind the podium. For this reason, the device is sometimes called the “invisible teleprompter”
We have prompted for every president since Gerald Ford with our Presidential Prompters and highly experienced, professional operators. We are regularly called to the United Nations to prompt for visiting Heads of State.
It is essential that a highly experienced operator set up and use this device as in virtually every case your event is live. This puts pressure on the operator to get it right and to be ready when Murphy’s law kicks in and there is some unexpected problem. Our skilled operators carry a backup laptop because let’s face it while today’s computers are rugged and dependable and we always update and care for ours… they are still computers. And in rare occasions, they fail. So a back up is not just a good thing, it’s an essential thing when operating at a live event.
Additionally, the operator must thoroughly know the software and be able to react instantly to every change in the performance… Suddenly the talent stops for a joke. or to respond to an audience member or to just ad lib for a few moments… the operator cannot get flustered. If the speaker strays “off text”, the operator needs to not panic and handle the situation. He/she must stay calm and professional and deal with the unexpected.

It’s common for most speakers to stand behind the podium, although some speakers like to walk around the stage and at times actually move out into the audience itself. In cases like this, we suggest you use one or more of our confidence monitors. These are small, “flat screen” HD monitors which can receive any signal from a teleprompter.
The size and number of monitors vary depending on the venue and preference of the client.
Typical configurations are:
Price: $645 Two 19″ Monitors Delivered with Operator, Computer & Software ($95 per additional Monitor)
Price: $645 One 32″ or 36″ Monitor on a low black stand delivered with operator. ($125 per additional unit.)
Large screen 42″ to 90″ Monitor mounted on large rolling stand delivered with operator.
Please Call 212-219-1075

EyePrompt / iPad Teleprompter Rentals
Price $95 + 25 If You Need The iPad and Software.
We have experimented with virtually every type of iPad prompter and, frankly, we are not in love with any device that depends on an iPad. The text is just not easy to control. And the key to a good prompter experience is the confidence the talent has that the text is going to keep up with him or her. If they speed up, the text flow must speed up if they slow or stop the text must follow suit.
The iPad is just not great at this. There is a way to control the iPad with an iPhone via Bluetooth but I have never been satisfied with this working dependably in a professional situation.
But, the best iPad prompter we have seen is the EyePrompt. It is one piece, folds flat so it fits in a small briefcase (great for shipping) and unfolds ready for action in literally one minute and eleven seconds. I timed it.
It sits on a small light stand or low C stand (typical 750 stud) not included. We do supply the adaptor. This means you can use any camera from a small prosumer camcorder to a huge professional rig with a very long lens.

Note: this unit is not delivered and does not come with an operator. It can be picked up and dropped off in Manhattan and Hollywood.

And now, come with me and reflect on some fun facts.
Washington DC is an incredible city on many levels. It is unique in that the Constitution designated it as the nation’s capital. It houses the three branches of the federal government, as well as the Supreme Court, and several architectural wonders, the White House the Washington National Cathedral, the Thomas Jefferson Memorial, the United States Capitol, the Lincoln Memorial and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
Washington is home to many monuments and museums. Prominent among them is the Smithsonian Institution under whose auspices at least 19 museums and the National Zoo, are all free to the public.
It has a distinctive allure, both for locals and tourists from around the world. It is a center of power and an inviting place to visit. Some of us at TeleprompterRental.com call it home.
