because there are so many choices. We have provided
this summery of our services and products and point

Beware of Cheap Products:
Some products floating around out there are poorly
built out of wood, plastic, cardboard, Plexiglas,
bamboo, and just about any other material you can
think of, they are usually pretty cheap, both in
price and quality. If
you are considering one of these cheaper products
here are some things to consider.
- How reliable is the product?
- What happens if the person building them quits and you need a replacement
part, like a mirror?
- Does the person selling me this cheap equipment know enough about
the industry to provide a product that will work with your equipment?
- How many good features are you sacrificing by buying a cheap product?
- Will you look professional with a wooden box and black towel, or
whatever other type of material the cheap product is built from hanging
off the front of your camera?
I could go on because there is a lot to consider, but we think you
see our point. When you are shopping for a Teleprompter, be sure
that you are buying a quality product from a company that knows the
industry enough to provide you with the best possible product, built
to last for years and years.
Mirror in the Industry
We use high quality 70/30 BeamSplitter Mirror on
all of our products.
Most other companies in the industry use a less
expensive mirror know as 60/40 BeamSplitter. Many people do not
understand what BeamSplitter mirror is or what this value means. It’s
quite simple actually. The numbers 60/40, 70/30, 50/50, and any
other combination like this are ratios of reflectivity
The first number in the ratio represents the transparent
quality of the mirror and the second number represents
the reflective quality of the mirror. The higher the reflective
quality is the lower the transparency.
Any time you put a teleprompter in front of your
camera is like placing a pair of sunglasses on
the lens. The
less the transparency the darker the image will
Most Teleprompter companies in the industry use
60/40 BeamSplitter mirror. This is literally blocking out almost
half of the light passing through to the lens,
which can result in poor image quality or the need
to add excessive light to your set to compensate for the light loss.
Cameras are generally able to compensate for lower
light, up to a point! We figured this out early on as we started
to introduce new products to the world.
70/30 Beamsplitter has a minimal effect on image
quality, and usually does not affect the image
enough to require more lighting. In addition, the unique quality of BeamSplitter Mirror
is that when light hits it, it really becomes a powerful mirror so at
30% you will still get a great reflection of the text. We have
never had a customer complain that their mirror
was too dark, or that is did not reflect the image
No matter what anyone else tells you there are
no exceptions to this rule. Lower light results in image
quality loss or the need for more light!
Prices in the industry
There are many reasons to do business with
Teleprompter's and one of them is
price. Telmax Teleprompter's
are the best price Teleprompter's in their class
for the Teleprompter industry worldwide.
Some people live by this rule that the more you
pay for something the better it is. In some cases, that can be
true. But when it comes to our products, no other company offers
more value for you dollar than we do
As you are searching for Teleprompter's you will
probably see prices double the price of our products,
and might even think that you are giving up something
or down grading by buying our products, when in
fact, if you bought the other more expensive product, you are probably
paying more money for less product.
Why the low prices? First, we manufacture all of our own products,
which reduce the product costs compared to other companies that have
their stuff built in china, or outsource fabrication to some outside
Second, we are factory direct for the most part. By cutting out
the 20-30% paid out to resellers we are able to pass those savings to
you. We like our business model and plan to continue manufacturing
and sell direct to our customers for as long as we can.
There is a difference between a great value low
cost product like Telmax, and one that is cheap. When shopping
for a teleprompter you will see prices all over
the place, from a few dollars to a few thousand dollars. Make
sure that you fully understand what you are buying. Many so called
teleprompter's are built form wood, plastic, PVC, and a lot of other
scrap materials, and are usually being made in someone’s garage. Make
sure you know who you are dealing with.
Teleprompter Software In the industry
Pro, our proprietary software
has been repeatedly called the best software
in the industry; in fact, we are so sure
of it we have provided a link
to download it
as a trial so you can compare it to any other
software out there.
Over the years, some people have made the
mistake of buying from one of our competitors
just to learn that they did not get the
best possible software solution for their production
many cases we sell our software to individuals
that have purchased their hardware somewhere
else. Considering that ZaPrompt Pro is included
free with most of our Teleprompter's, this is
an unfortunate, avoidable, pit-fall, had that
individual did the homework before making a decision.
We strongly urge you to take the time to evaluate
the software that is included with the Teleprompter
you are buying; it can make the difference between
an O. K. production and a great production.
