For videos that engage an audience, it's extremely important for the host to maintain good eye contact. Trust me, if you guys ever need to have someone drop a few lines or read off a script, a Prompter is a true time saver. Time is money, especially when you're off at a rented location, you can't spend countless takes waiting for your host to nail a script. Not something you'd typically see, but that's all changing now. In the past, the problem was that these units used to run in the thousands and were quite bulky. iPads have helped shaped these things down to a much more manageable tool that we use both in the studio and out in the field.
The Pad Prompter is not only set at a decent price with a true glass beam splitter (good for maintaining sharpness), but is also the only one I know that can break down this small and mount a basic rail setup. The entire unit packs into a laptop sized bag and can be transported with the iPad inside. The Pad Prompter does not include any software, and we're using the ProPrompter.
