What's New With The G2 Series?
The G2 Teleprompter series is the next generation Galaxy Series Teleprompters. Like its predecessor, the G2 series prompters are professional teleprompters built to meet the highest expectations of our customers. There are three different sizes to choose from, 15", 17", and 19". All three of these teleprompters have the same design and functionality with minimal differences. These differences are; the size of the monitor, beam-splitter mirror, and maximum reading distances.
Why The G2-15 Teleprompter?
The G2-15 is the smallest of the Galaxy 2 series and is a great fit for a variety of shooting situations. The G2-15 Teleprompter is the perfect prompter for video production both inside the studio and out. Lightweight, durable, easy to set up, and easy to use. This teleprompter will work with a wide range of cameras and tripods. The unique camera riser adjustment on all Galaxy Series Prompters allows for quick and easy adjustments, to perfectly center the camera lens with the mirror. The sled assembly makes balancing the weight on your tripod a cinch. The ABS mirror enclosure is easily removable, making it easy to clean the mirror. The beam-splitter mirror angle is also adjustable, allowing you to get the perfect angle, especially for those difficult shots. The G2-15 teleprompter also folds completely horizontal making it easy to transport from place to place.
The G2-15 has a 14" X 14" 70/30 HD video production grade beam-splitter mirror, perfectly sized for the included 15" monitor. This setup allows for a maximum reading distance of up to 18', making it perfect for most shots. Whether your a veteran videographer or a novice, you'll find the G2 will make every shot easy and professional.
Monitor Choices for this Teleprompter:
- An LCD monitor that has no special functionality and only has VGA/HDMI input.
- A Professional Image Reversing Teleprompter monitor with HDMI/VGA/USB/COMPOSITE inputs.
When a teleprompter has a monitor attached to it, that monitor is what will display the scrolling text. This particular teleprompter displayed the text on a two-way mirror that is positioned directly in front of the camera lens.
If you have ever looked into a mirror you probably noticed that everything is backward in the reflection. With teleprompters the same is true. The reflection on the mirror of the monitor is backward and will remain that way until it is mirrored or reversed.
There are two ways to accomplish reversing the image. First, the software that is feeding the monitor could reverse the window it is presented in causing the reflection to look correct.
The other way is to use a professional monitor that has the built-in ability to reverse the image that it is displaying which also give the same result of correcting the reflection to look correct.
The main difference between these two types of image reversing is that when relying on the software, only what the software is displaying will be reversed. That means that everything else that appears on the monitor will be backward on the screen. For example, a powerpoint slide or webpage would appear backward.
When using a professional teleprompter monitor everything that appears on the monitor will be reversed allowing for a lot of really cool possibilities. For example, because the monitor takes a composite feed you can feed a live video conference or stream onto the monitor the image will look correct, or you can simply type something out in an MS Word document and it would also look correct.
This great teleprompter works perfect with both options and deciding between one monitor or another comes down to one simple question. How do you plan to use the teleprompter and what might you use it for in the future?
The G2-15 also includes ZaPrompt Pro Teleprompter Software and is licensed to be installed on up to four computers. This dual screen software allows the operator to reverse the image on the teleprompter monitor without having to reverse the image on the primary computer or operator monitor. Thus, the operator is able to read the script upright while the image on the secondary monitor (the teleprompter monitor) is flipped for the mirror on the Teleprompter. The software enables keyboard shortcuts for pausing and playing the text, making rapid changes to the speed and size of the text, changing the margin width and more, all while the text is continually scrolling. The handy book-marking tool returns the script to the exact place in the text prior to editing changes, providing for a seamless and error-free flow in the production. ZaPrompt Pro efficiently handles longer texts, breaking them down into smaller chunks and eliminating the need for buffering time. The software supports multiple color text and different fonts, making presentations for multiple readers a snap. ZaPrompt Pro also enables the speaker to run the program without the need for an operator.
