Turning a smartphone into a teleprompter

Techstination feature for Thursday, February 16, 2012

Turning a smartphone into a teleprompter.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   The next time you want to create a video for YouTube or the kids want to play news anchor, the photographic equipment company Tiffen has just the gadget.   CEO Steve Tiffen…

“It’s a basic system that will use either your iPhone or iPad and we’ll build around it with a remote control which will allow people who want to do real professional quality videos at home to be able to prepare a proper dialogue and a script, just like the professionals do.  That’s from our Listec division.  Very excited about that new product.” How do you control the scrolling with that?  “We actually have a remote control that will allow you to change text on the fly and control the scroll.  It’s a really cool, innovative product.   Comes with a downloadable app from either the Android marketplace or the app store.”

In fact, the app alone is free and is fun to play with stand alone.   You can find it listed under PromptWare Plus in the Android Marketplace of Apple’s app store.   You can find us at   I’m Fred Fishkin.
