On Camera Rigging

Teleprompter Rigging for tripods and pedestals

 

We offer a variety of rigging solutions with both Fusion and the Premium / Quasar Ranges for Professional Cameras. Fusion uses 19mm bars and customised clamps (I) and Premium / Quasar an ENG plate (J) sandwiched between the camera plate / tripod and a U mount (K) attached to the ENG plate via the large thumb screws to the monitor. Rigging on Pedestals fitted with a suitable plate will use Portaprompt Telescopic Rods instead of the ENG plate and the U mount is attached to the rods via thumb screws. There are 2 lengths of rod to suit differing lens sizes.

Another way of using a prompter is to actually not rig it on the camera support. This means a lightweight tripod is not a limiting factor to having a prompter. The other advantage is its very quick to separate the camera and prompter, for shots not needing the prompter.  The draw back is the shot has to be a static piece to camera but that is almost the norm for prompted pieces to camera.
