About Listec Video Corp.
The name LISTEC has been associated with the Broadcast Industry since 1967. In the mid '70's Listec added prompting to its distributed line of products. In 1984, sensing a need to produce a reliable, economical range of prompters and anticipating the electronic age, Listec entered into the direct manufacture of prompting systems, alongside its distributed line. In 1986, Listec Video was formed, devoting its energies exclusively to prompting. Listec products included the innovative PromptXpress, Entree and T/STS Series of 12", 15", and 17" LED Flat-Panel Prompters under the Vu-Lite and Spectra-Lite brand names.
