Here’s a great article about the history of the Presidential teleprompter.
What do you do when speakers using a presidential teleprompter are of different height?
6 inches is usually the normal range before the words aren’t visible. Our robotic rise and fall Telestepper shafts allow for presenters of varied heights to speak comfortably. The 24 inch range can also allow the mirror to disappear from view when not needed. This makes the camera crew happy.
We’re proud to manufacture our rise and fall Telestepper shafts which are available for rental or purchase. Ask for one for your next event.
It comes with the bases, motorized shafts, clamps, remote control, control cable, case, and power supply. If you buy or rent, you would just add your own monitors, mirrors, and cables.
Downstage Monitors are great when your speaker wanders on stage.
We offer 24 to 50 inch confidence monitors that are placed just downstage. These are similar to other monitors that may display PowerPoint or Keynote. With proper training, your speaker can just glance at the monitors to read their words and carry on talking with the audience.
We sometimes connect presidential and DSM units together for maximum flexibility across a variety of speakers.
