PRomptBox is perfect for any kind of video shoot in the field. It is lightweight, compact, and requires no power source other than a working smart phone or tablet.
PRomptBox was recently featured in an article in government video magazine, and you see it in use by a forest service team in the photo here. Prompting on location has always been a struggle since traditional prompters require a heavy-duty tripod, laptop, cables and power, but with PRomptBox, all of that has changed.
PRomptBox Mobile uses a tablet or cell phone as the screen, so mounting to a dSLR or camcorder is easy. PRomptBox uses a proprietary top shoe mount or 1/4- 20 pistol-grip mount from below. The system is adjustable to full-size cameras, including studio cameras, jibs or Steadicams, and can be deployed easily in the studio or in the field.
According the article in Government Magazine (click here to see the full article):
“We do a lot of productions in very remote areas, no access to electricity, and have to carry gear for long distances, and this appeals to me because the PRomptBox you could carry in a backpack,” Steve said. “I have an iPhone and an iPad, so I have the devices that are compatible with the PRomptBox. Obviously, from the perspective of portability, affordability and also just general convenience, this is a significant leap forward for us.”
Here’s a sample scenario used by the Dunskys for the Forest Service: They dictate text into a mobile device, tap “Save,” tap “Loop” and the mirrored script appears on the screen. They place the same mobile device into the PRomptBox, and it’s ready for production.Learn More or Buy Online
