CPIT School of Broadcasting Adds Prompters to their Production studio

CPIT has recently installed on-camera teleprompters from Autoscript onto two of its studio camera systems to enhance the schools ability to reach journalism, reporting, and on-camera presenting. The prompters were supplied by Gencom Technology, who have a long history with the school, having assisted in the upgrade of their TV studio facility in 2011.

Richard Hansen, the school’s 1st Year Tutor Television, said,

"We produce a half hour News programme for Canterbury Television as part of the 2nd year Journalism and Television curriculum. The new prompters are invaluable. They allow us to operate the cameras at a greater distance from the News anchors. This enables us to utilise the set and studio space far more effectively. The build, size and clarity of the displays are really impressive. I spent almost a year researching prompters and these were by far the best option and value for money." 


The new ELP15Plus further improves and develops Autoscript’s highly successful ELP15 On-Camera Prompter.  Housed in a new slimline metal case and featuring 50% less power, a 20 degree wider viewing angle and a 20% reduction in weight this is an all new monitor. The unit provides a 15 inch screen with 400 nits of brightness; composite, VGA and s-video inputs; and can be powered from either an external 12V DC PSU or by 12V DC from a battery for portable applications. It includes a 3.5mm 12V DC outlet suitable for the ClockPlus,TallyPlus, or CuePlus accessories.
