Standard Teleprompter Rental
Price: $645/10 Hour Day
Delivered with a professional operator.
The through-the-lens prompter is the most popular option amongst video productions. Its use has been recognized as an asset to any project. This unit achieves the effect of the talent looking directly into the camera while delivering his/her message. It also eliminates the need to memorize lines upon lines of a long script. Our operators work with the talent to make sure they are comfortable with the font and size of the text and can easily read it. The operator also keeps pace with the speaker and pauses, speeds up or slows down accordingly. Talent is in charge!
Interrotron Mark III Rental Pair (Director’s Unit and Talent Unit)
Price: $845/10 Hour Day
Delivered with an experienced technician.
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, HD-SDI, Component, Composite). This allows the director to not only have a “face-to-face” conversation with the talent but also allows him/her to judge framing, exposure, depth of field, focus, color saturation, etc.
The Talent Unit is built on a modified, professional teleprompter platform. It includes 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, if desired, also support a zoom lens.
Presidential Teleprompter Rental (aka Speech Prompter)
Price: $845/10 Hour Day
Delivered by a professional operator.
The Presidential Prompter a.k.a. “Speech Prompter” is the standard device of choice for speaking to an audience from a podium. Every president since Dwight D. 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 he/she can clearly see the text reflected in the two-way mirrored glass. For this reason, the device is sometimes called the “invisible teleprompter”.
We have prompted for every president since Gerald Ford with our Presidential Prompters. We are regularly called to the United Nations to prompt for visiting Heads of State.
Since this type of prompter is most commonly used for live productions, all of our skilled operators carry a backup laptop. He/she is also experienced in keeping up with talent (speeding up, slowing down and pausing the scroll as needed), even if the speaker strays off script.
Price: $645 Two 19″ Monitors ($95 per additional Monitor).
$645 One 32″ or 36″ Monitor on a low black stand ($125 per additional unit).
The size and number of monitors vary depending on the venue and preference of the client.
For larger monitors or unique setups, please call us at 917-414-5489.
Delivered by a professional operator.
It’s common for most speakers to stand behind the podium, although some performers like to walk around the stage and at times actually go 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 teleprompter software.
The monitor can be placed on the stage floor, or on a rolling stand placed on or offstage. We can also provide “back of the house” monitors. These monitors are larger than those used on stage and are placed, as the name suggests, at the back of the room behind the audience.
EyePrompter / iPad Teleprompter Rental
Price: $120 with iPad | $95 without iPad
Available only for in-office pickup and return or shipping.
The iPad prompter is a good option for small shoots on a tight budget, and for student productions. The EyePrompter is one of the leading iPad prompter units on the market. 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 (yeah, we timed it). It is important to note, however, that most iPad prompting software does not allow you to speed up, slow down or pause the script once scrolling begins – so the talent has to keep up with the pace of the unit. This is yet another reason why rehearsal is so important.
The device sits on a small light stand or low C-stand. (750 stud and stand are not included in rental). You can use any camera from a small prosumer camcorder to a huge professional rig with a very long lens.
TeleprompterRental.com has been helping politicians and normal folk deliver better, more interesting speeches for quite some time. Often, our services are required at various locations both inside and outside. We offer a variety of prompters, including Presidential Teleprompters (How apt is that?), Confidence Monitors, Battery-powered Teleprompters and even iPad prompters. We love this city. There’s never a dull moment.
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. It has 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 also 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.

Eve Wilson, Teleprompter Speech Coach, Washington DC
Our Teleprompter Speech coaches work with your talent either just before their on camera appearance or even days or weeks earlier. The idea is to get professional help in delivering a confident, relaxed, effective performance before a teleprompter.
Our coaches will come to your place of business, sound stage or set with a teleprompter or presidential prompter and camera. Your talent will rehearse his/her speech with continual input from the coach. Each iteration of the speech will be recorded on camera and later given to the talent so they can review the video, hear the coach’s comments and visibly track their progress.
If the performance or speech for you or your client is really important you may want to consider prior training with a professional coach.
