Interrotron unit on set - Chicago

Interrotron Mark III Rental (Double Unit)

Price: $1,195 – per day
Half Price: $600 – Half day

An operator accompanies the device.

The Interrotron allows you to get the best shot, the first time! With its dual teleprompter units creating a “face-to-face” dynamic, it captures a more natural sounding performance. From the talent’s unit, the director/interviewer’s image is reflected onto the front of the lens. This provides them with direct engagement towards the center of the camera. On the other end, the director’s unit allows you to see the subject, so you can check for framing, correct coloring, or adjust lighting.


EyeDirect unit - Chicago

EyeDirect Rental

Price: $250 – 24 hours a day and $750 a week

Please call for more info on extended rental packages.

The EyeDirect uses reflective surfacing to promote direct address towards the center of the camera. Much like a standard Interrotron, it projects the director/interviewer’s image onto the front of the lens. This encourages a more natural sounding conversation from your talent by diminishing the presence of a camera. The unit comes in a custom-fitted Pelican case for protection during shipping. The EyeDirect weighs 30lbs and is permissible as an airline carry-on.

Presidential Teleprompter and Podium facing audience - Chicago

Presidential Teleprompter Rental (aka Speech Prompter)

Price: $1295/10 Hour Day

The Presidential Prompter is the device of choice for those addressing an audience from a podium. It consists of two glass panels on stands which are positioned on either side of a podium. While the speaker confidently reads the text reflected on the glass, the audience sees right through it.  Their face remains visible to the audience.

You can compare the features of our Confidence or Lectern Monitors and the Presidential Teleprompter to find the ideal device for your engagement.

Confidence Monitor unit - Chicago


Confidence Monitor

Price: $945 for 10 Hour Day
Half Price: $475 for 5 Hour Day

19″ monitors OR 32″/36″ monitor on stand

To discuss your needs and special setups please call our office at 646-340-6450.

Confidence Monitors are the perfect setup for speakers who prefer to move around the stage, as opposed to standing behind a podium. They allow for open and direct audience engagement, while still providing the speaker with accessibility to a teleprompter. There are three options for a Confidence Monitor setup:

  • Downstage- placed on the floor in front of the speaker.
  • Offstage- placed on stands off to the side of the stage.
  • Back of the House- placed at the back of the room, behind the audience.

These are small, “flat screen” HD monitors which can receive any signal from a teleprompter. Check out the Confidence Monitor page for more information, as well as images of the units by clicking on the link in the top menu.

iPad Teleprompter Rental/EyePrompter Rental

Price: $95 without iPad, $295 with iPad 24 Hours a day, and $885 a week (Stand not included)

The iPad/Eye Prompters are the preferred rentals for smaller productions. The EyePrompter is designed for its portability, durability, and quality. It supports a wide range of device sizes, from large smartphones to tablets, yet collapses into the size of a laptop. With its sleek and clean design, setup takes less than 2 minutes. Due to current iPad Teleprompter software, your talent will have to keep pace with the text speed of the device.

Available for shipping only.


Podium Monitor - Chicago

Podium Prompter (Podium AutoCue)

Price: $645/10 Hour Day


The Podium Prompter is the discreet device for speaking engagements. It’s a thin teleprompter monitor placed on top of the podium out of the audience’s view. The speaker has the ability to scroll the text from a handheld mechanism, or the cabling can be dressed down the inside of the podium and out to the operator offstage. This allows for easy referral to the script while maintaining a consistent connection with your audience.

Rise and Fall “Robotic” Presidential Prompter Pair

presidential teleprompter

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.

Price: $1595 Rise and Fall “Robotic” Teleprompter

Chicago Teleprompter Service

Before the rise of Hollywood, Chicago was the production capital of the nation. Chicago has a strong industry presence and began attracting filmmakers back to the city in the early 80s. Over 1100 feature films have been shot in the city, generating over $2 billion in revenue. Iconic films such as Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Sleepless in Seattle, When Harry Met Sally and High Fidelity have been shot in Chicago. The city is no stranger to television production either. Shows including the NBC Chicago franchise, Netflix’s Easy and Showtime’s Shameless are filmed in Chicago. The city introduced a tax credit bill in 2009 which has reeled in more filmmakers and content creators from across the nation. We are over the moon to be in Chicago!  The people are welcoming and it is a pleasure to be among such industrious, dedicated folks.  Mayor Rahm Emanuel and his appreciation for the arts has contributed to an atmosphere which prizes and attracts creatives.

An interesting fun fact, when Rahm Emanuel was White House Chief of staff to President Barack Obama, both he and the President used teleprompters quite often.  He still does when giving speeches as Chicago’s mayor.

Two of April’s absolute favorites!  They often dictate whether she goes on the road or not! Actually, she found a friend whose generosity is legend.  He loves dogs, has a big apartment and has time to walk them in a nearby park.

Chicago!  Love this city.  People warned me about the high crime rate etc.  Luckily I haven’t been touched by that.  I must tell you that what impresses me thus far is the vitality, the warmth of the people I’ve encountered in my line of work, as it were.

I am associated with the American Movie Company and Teleprompter Rental both housed in Manhattan.  They branched out to cities across the country. I’ve worked under their auspices for a few years in New York.  I just ended a relationship and needed a change.  I jumped at the chance to literally put distance between my old life and the prospect of an exciting new chapter here.

It’s turned out to be my kind of town.  Last week I worked as a teleprompter operator on a very interesting event.  It was a fund raiser for inner schools.  Next week we are shooting at a jazz club.  Can’t wait.

An aside – in the breakup, I got to keep Lex and Luna – they make me happy.
