Notes and Tips – Tablet Devices

Getting started – Your 1st decision is to decide what type of device you will use as you need to download a prompting software application. Our rigging will fit all variants of tablets and using 15mm bars connects on pretty much any kind of camera from DSLR and PTZ cameras to conventional video and film cameras on Jimmy Jibs, Steadicams, handheld or tripod mounted rigs!

Tablet and Phone Software options

  • Apple Tablets – we recommend and use the Pico Prompt App which is a £15 download from the Apple Store. When combined with the i-scroll and i-glue you have variable scrolling functionality that you would expect to have on a conventional device which means the Presenter is in control of the script rather than vice versa (never a good idea).
  • Android – there are a number of packages available. The one we use is called i-Prompt Pro which is a free download. The limitation is that we are not aware of a good variable scrolling device for Android
  • Windows – once again there are a number of packages available on the web to download but again the limitation is that we are not aware of a good variable scrolling device for Windows

 

Limitations in using tablet systems. Editing scripts changes with tablets can be a pain as you have to de-rig the tablet, turn mirror mode off, make the changes, re-mirror and re-rig. Alternatively you can link with a wireless or Bluetooth key board which makes the operation very simple.

 

Using WinDigi Software in a tablet workflow. You create scripts and stage directions in our WinDigi PC software which has far more functionality than the tablet based software, save the script to an FTP server and download the script from the server to the tablet (running the Pico Prompt App) and using the i-scroll / glue device run the show!
