The ProPrompter HDi Pro2 for iPad & iPad 2 leverages the large, bright display of the relatively compact iPad & iPad 2 as a powerful, teleprompting device. This complete kit includes mounting hardware for two very different types of cameras, so the HDi Pro2 stands as a solution for both compact/handheld camcorders and shoulder-mounted ENG models. For larger ENG models, the kit includes a mounting bracket with holes for standard 15mm rods.
For medium and smaller camcorders, there's a camera bar that attaches to the 1/4"-20 thread at the camera bottom and this piece features a removable pistol grip for holding the entire rig. For all camera types, carbon rods enable vertical adjustment of the prompter in relation to the camera lens. Either configuration requires minimal setup and breakdown time. At the heart of the system is the angled transmissive mirror that's composed of studio-quality 60/40 glass. This is the optimal ratio for reflecting the scrolling text from the iPad while transmitting as much light as possible to the lens.
The glass is enclosed in a 16:9 widescreen ABS plastic hood/mirror box. Anti-reflective fabric pieces block ambient light from interfering with both the lens and the iPad. A bracket that's intended for both iPad and iPad 2 models attaches below the glass to cradle the iPad. With a 150mm lens opening, the HDi Pro2 Kit accommodates even the widest lenses.
