What is a Teleprompter and Why Do You Need It


Teleprompters and How They Work.

A Teleprompter is an essential tool in video production that makes producing a video easier and puts less stress on the talent .We are going to explain how a teleprompter can make video production easy.

Teleprompter features

 A teleprompter has a specialised reflective screen that is usually placed in front of the video camera lens for displaying the script.

The screen is made of a reflective glass that is completely a see-through on one side and reflective on the other.

This enables the camera to shoot through it without visually affecting the video.

Meanwhile, the other side of the screen (the side that faces the presenter) is reflective, so anything that is
displayed on the monitor underneath will be reflected onto the screen.
