Reliable Teleprompting Solutions
Q-Prompt Inc.

OPERATORS & EQUIPMENT

Our operators come with years of experience in both teleprompter and audio visual fields. Their in-depth knowledge of our equipment and its operation, combined with their extensive knowledge of how to work with presenters, make them an integral part of our service and reliability.

"They get it right the first time, every time"

Although operating a teleprompter may seem like a simple task, having an experienced operator is crucial to providing the presenter with a smooth and positive experience.

A good operator works with the presenter in many different ways. He will know when to offer advice and when to sit back and let production work it out.

Their main goal is to make the presenter feel confident about the reliability of the technology and the competence of the person operating it.

Scripts

Getting Your Script to Us

Getting your scripts to us in a timely fashion allows us to import and format the scripts prior to arriving onsite. We encourage you to e-mail your script to the following address (24hrs prior to call time): scripts@qprompt.com or to bring your script on either CD-ROM or USB Memory Stick.

Formatting

The Teleprompter version of your script should only contain what your speaker will be actually reading. You should remove any stage cues that are not relevant to your speaker along with any other formatting that are usually present in run-sheets and production scripts. Tables and charts do not belong in your teleprompter version of your script. Making sure that you have a clean version of your script prior to arriving on site will save valuable time and money. Your text should be in a text format.

**Tracked changes must be accepted/rejected prior to giving us the file.

Acceptable Formats

  • Word
  • WordPerfect
  • Text
  • Rich Text Format
  • Works

What Not To Include

  • Tables
  • Graphs
  • Images
  • Stage Cues (other than that of speakers)
  • Powerpoint Files
  • Excel Files

Alternative Delivery Methods

Should an electronic file of your script be unavailable, the next best option is a good clean hard-copy. We utilize the latest Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology, allowing us to scan your script into our computers instead of hand typing them. To do this effectively we require quality printouts, which means a clean computer printed document. Photo copies of scripts are acceptable, but vary in quality and scan-ability.

For last minute requirements, we can accept FAX transmittals. However, faxed scripts cannot be scanned easily and thus are more likely to incur extra script charges from additional key-entry. And finally, handwritten scripts can be keyed in. (Again, these are more prone to additional script entry charges)

Mac Users

Q-prompt currently utilizes Windows based software. We are able to read and import any text documents that are saved in Mac format. The Rich Text Format (RTF) is our preferred file format for all scripts. Providing us with this format will enable us to maintain the integrity of your file, font size and colour and any formatting options that you may have chosen. Please ensure that the transfer media is compatible with the Windows platform. You may choose any of the transfer media listed above. The media that you provide use must be PC compatible in order to enable us to transfer your files to our computers.
