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:


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

Warm regards

We now use an iPad for prompt.

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.
