Autocue for Canon XHA1

Hi Guys

I realise it's been a while since someone (apart from me) posted in the 'autocue/remote control' thread at the link below. What is apparent to me from the older thread is that by using a 'presidential glass/reader/screen' it may be possible to use this method instead of a traditional, and apparently much more expensive, autocue system.

Is anyone aware of a up-to-date breakdown of what a person who wishes to go for a glass-reader solution may need in order to do this? I would love to assemble one of these as a workaround to an expensive autocue system but am dying to learn how!

For background, the older thread is here:

Teleprompt/Autocue - remote control question

Any thoughts, tips or suggestions of any kind would be dearly appreciated.

Warm regards

Peter

We now use an iPad for prompt.

Re: Autocue for Canon XHA1

Hi David

What system (glass etc) do you use to set up the iPad as a teleprompter?

In a dilemma at the moment as require a presenter to speak directly into the camera lens (while reading auto cue), but also to speak to an 'invisible' interviewer (auto cue) positioned to the side of the camera.
