The GVM Teleprompter TQ-M has a traditional tripod-mount prompter design and supports up to 10.5" tablets and smartphones. It includes an iOS/Android GVM prompting app and comes with a Bluetooth remote control that works with the app.
Although traditional, the design is compact and lightweight, consisting mainly of a slim base with a camera bracket on the rear and tablet holder on the front. A phone holder is included that can be installed instead of the tablet holder to support most smartphones. The colorless beamsplitter glass with multi-layer dielectric coating for light loss prevention is positioned in the middle with a hood to keep light out of your camera's lens. Virtually any small- or mid-sized camera with any lens diameter can be lined up behind the glass. The camera bracket can be rotated to support compact cameras on one side and larger ones on the other.
The camera bracket can also be moved forward and backward to properly line up your camera, and it's easily secured tool-free via a knob on the bottom. The tablet cradle on the front can similarly be adjusted forward and backward to line up different-sized tablets and phones to the beamsplitter glass. And the beamsplitter glass can be tilted forward and backward to your talent's needs to more clearly reflect the text from your mobile app.
The GVM app allows you to enter text and adjust font size, playback speed, and background color. The included remote control lets you adjust the scroll speed as well as start and pause scrolling remotely.
The main bracket features 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded holes on the bottom for mounting compatibility with virtually all tripods, and included 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 thumbscrews secure your camera on top.
For easier transport, the prompter breaks down and the different components can be packed away more compact.
