WinDigi Prompting Software
WinDigi is a powerful networkable prompting software package for Windows XP®, VISTA®, 7®, 8®, 10® developed by Portaprompt who have over 40 years of experience in prompting sales and hire. No special graphics card is required as the software uses the standard video card supplied with your PC.
It is specifically written and designed to interface with ENPS’s using the Media Server Communications Protocol (MOS) as well as the Avid iNEWS® ftp system, enabling the newsroom computer to control the stories and running order in WinDigi with the addition of the newsroom module and a full or hybrid IP workflow can be established with the addition of the WinDigi IP suite software
- True Type® fonts are scaled giving large easy-to-read characters which are smoothly scrolled with a controller. All Unicode fonts supported with appropriate operating systems, (Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Hindi etc.)
- The Editor uses Rich Text Format (RTF) making it compatible with standard word processor software. It can be formatted using bold, underlining, italics, colour, centring, indenting, inversion, justification and bullet points, making it the most powerful prompter software we have developed.
- Other features include instant restart to top of script or story, adjustable margins and indents and adjustable eye line.
- The Run Time Editor enables stories to be inserted in an instant and the run time of programme and individual stories are constantly updated with the actual speaking speed of the presenter. There is also a time to on-air clock with programmable alarm warnings.

- Full range of wired and wireless control devices (mouse, hand and foot) for total variable speed control
- Our network attached prompting screens and our applets for Android and IOS are controlled by IP over a network (public internet for remote working or your in house facilities). The IP connection simply replaces the conventional video connection between the PC and display, all other functionality remains the same.
