Portaprompt at IBC 2014

Portaprompt will be introducing several new products at IBC this year. Jim Keating the Technical Director explains:
“At this IBC we will be showing an upgrade to our Windigi Software that allows the prompting operator to choose the style of prompting operation that they want to use. They can select either a single screen for all operations or use a twin screen operation which has a preview / edit screen and a second picture in picture screen that is the perfectly synchronised output of the main prompt screen. We are calling this T-Windigi.
Also we have now a complete range of folding prompter hoods which support our design philosophy of producing the brightest and lightest prompting rigs available. These will complement our existing range of rigid hoods giving the customer compete choice as to the type of hood they wish to use.
Finally something we are very excited about is the introduction of a new combined Tablet / Micro Prompt / Interrotron device called the 365 Personal Prompting Assistant which will be shown publicly for the first time at IBC.
This has been developed from our successful 350 series tablet-based prompting rig, which will remain in our line up. The difference is the 365 is designed exclusively for use with 15mm and 19mm bar rigs and gives the user the flexibility to rig it with either a tablet, a conventional dedicated prompting monitor (up to 10” in size) or use it as a passive, Interrotron device. The use of Interrotrons is becoming a more and more popular prompting technique especially in the corporate production sector where the presenter may not do this for a living. Hence the name 365 as it is a prompter that could be potentially used every day of the year!”
