    Are you mimicking a vertical phone video with a FS7 ?

    Is this the future, do we have to rotate our television sets too?

    And what about cinema screens? Oh dear...

    I will defo be checking out the iPad option(s) good to know where to start, thank you.

    The thing is I have three 7in monitors mainly unused (DP1 and DP6) and no ipad. My monitors run from BPU which I have a stock of. Word is monitors are brighter and better in a studio lit environment - hence a desire for HDMI/Laptop solution.

    On this BSL shoot there were some issues with ipad/phone synch and battery life - the kit was not mine so no bollocking for me - it was the directors.

    https://cueprompter.com/ is where Im at at the moment for laptop/HDMI and with the DP6 (not as ideal as the DP1) I think I can run the monitor in mirror mode so that director (views laptop) and mirror box are viewable at the same time. I like it becuae you can run it a little fast and hold it back with the laptop space bar - big to slap while you are concentrating on the talent.

    Maybe Im being a dinasaur.

    Clearly this is a greenscreen shoot. Shooting landscape would just lose a load of pixels, so 4k upright is going to deliver good quality keyable file (the same as an 8-12k landscape camera)

    The talent - BSL signer was used imposed over a landscape project.

    I think a teleprompt system that can shoot upright is pretty rare (or unique) and would shoot an unusually high quality key friendly file.

    Android has a couple of pretty good prompter apps, pretty sure you can control it over Bluetooth volume buttons which you can buy for a few dollars. For fairly cheap you could look into Rundown Creator for writing the scripts, they have a prompter mode. Price is fairly reasonable but you'd need internet everywhere, sends it out by second output on a computer. Browser based so just about anything should work.
