Entry-level VGA-Composite Studio Prompter w/ EZ Software for ENG camera
The Listec Entrée Multi-input Series was developed to provide a professional teleprompter at a cost-effective price for those new to prompting and when a composite video feed is required.
The Entrée 17-inch Composite-VGA System utilizes industrial-grade video components and a high-end LCD for greater durability, coupled with Listec's quality-built Easy-mount Support System.
As computers do not provide a command for image reversal, this becomes a function of either the teleprompting software, or outboard image reverser, which "flips" the image on the external prompter display and maintains it in normal mode on the computer screen.
Entrée systems are compact and lightweight and include a broadcast quality Fold-down Mirror/Soft Hood Assembly to accommodate typical ENG cameras.
Model ENC-1717PT-EZ is configured for use with a traditional style portable camera, weighing over 10 lbs (4.5kg), fitted with a bayonet-mount barrel lens and Windows-based computer.
Helpful hint for those new to prompting:
Ensure the pan & tilt head and tripod each has sufficient carrying capacity to support the camera system with prompter mounted.
