Our Teleprompter Rental service is the largest in the United States. Our Teleprompter Operators are located all over North America to prompt for a wide range of clients in the entertainment industry and in politics. (Beyoncê, First Lady Michelle Obama). We are known for our versatility. We have put Teleprompters on roof tops, poolside, in subways, and anywhere else our clients demand.
Standard Teleprompter Rental
Price: $945/10 Hours with an operator
This is a professional “through the lens” teleprompter. Our prompter sits on your tripod and then your camera sits on the sliding 15mm rods of our prompter plate. The speaker looks directly into the lens to read the copy. This type of unit is most commonly be found on video production sets and newsrooms.
The average set up time takes less than 30 minutes. Although we recommend sending scripts, in word format, to us in advance, you can give the script to the operator on set. Minor changes to the script can be made when the prompter is not actively scrolling.
Presidential Teleprompter Rental (aka Speech Prompter)
Price: $1295/10 Hour Day with operator
The Presidential Prompter is the most popular unit for live events. This is especially popular at graduations, conferences, award shows and presidential speeches. TeleprompterRental.com has experience prompting for all of the previously mentioned events and more.
It consists of two glass panels on thin steel rods which are positioned on either side of the podium. A monitor is placed at the base of the system and projects the script onto the glass for the speaker’s viewing. The glass is formulated in such a way that only the speaker sees the text, while the audience does not and instead sees the speakers face through the glass.
Occasionally, there is a need for several speakers to share the same podium at a live event. They may be of varying heights so that the teleprompter may need to be adjusted up or down for each individual. Having an assistant rush onstage to adjust the prompter height is not a good way to handle this.
Enter the Rise and Fall “Robotic” Presidential Teleprompter. In rehearsal, our operator sets the height of the two glass “paddles” for optimum comfortable reading level for each speaker. Then during the live event, he/she robotically adjusts the prompter height from a nearby location.
This unit is available in New York and San Francisco but can be shipped to other cities. Our Manhattan robotic prompter has served Boston, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Nantucket, Newark, Atlantic City, Hartford, Westchester and the Hamptons.

Confidence Monitor Rental
Price: $645/10 Hour Day with operator for 2x 19″ Monitors or 1x 32″/36″ Monitor
The size and number of monitors varies depending on the venue and preference of the client. For unique set ups and additional monitor requests, please call Bill at 917.414.5489.
When there is no podium for a speaker to address his/her audience, the confidence monitor comes into play. It’s a small, “flat screen” HD monitors which can receive any receive signal form a teleprompter. This can be placed on stage, off stage, or behind the audience. This gives the talent/speaker/performer the freedom to move about the stage, or even the room, while still having a script easily accessible to him/her.
Price: $1195/10 Hour Day (Interrotron Mark III); $645/10 Hour Day (Interrotron Mark II)
The Interrotron Mark III contains a director’s unit and a talent unit. The director’s unit allows the interviewer to not only engage in a face to face conversation with talent, but also judge quality of footage and provide direction. The talent unit, on the other hand, gives the talent the comfort of speaking to a person, rather than a lens, whilst still achieving the affect that they are looking into the camera.
The Interrotron Mark II only contains a talent’s unit. While the talent will see the director/interviewer’s face projected in front of the camera lens, the director will need to look directly into a camera instead of a monitor displaying the talent’s face.
For lower budget shoots or projects with extensive travel, we recommend the EyeDirect.
Price: $250/Day; $750/3 Day Week
Available for shipping only.
The EyeDirect achieves the same effect as the Interrotron for a fraction of the cost and without the bulky equipment. It utilizes a mirror system so that the director and talent can have a face to face conversation, while still appearing that the talent is looking into the camera.
The unit includes an iPad mount (iPad not included) as it can be used as an iPad teleprompter as well.
The unit comes in a custom fitted Pelican case which protects it while being shipped. The case weighs 30 lbs and is just a bit larger than the typical airline carry on bag.
