Autoscript, a Vitec Group brand, has today (April 5) introduced a new range of 'intelligent prompting' products and solutions for smaller productions and where cost is a factor.
The new products have been added to its existing IPS range. This includes EVO-IPS, which it describes as the world’s first all-IP prompting monitor (available in 15-inch and 19-inch models), and WinPlus-IPS software (an update to WinPlus XLite), a 'simple but powerful' prompting application for smaller productions
Robin Brown, product manager at Autoscript, claims WinPlus-IPS and EVO-IPS creates a highly responsive, IP-enabled prompting workflow with a select feature set ideally suited for smaller budgets.
“When we launched Intelligent Prompting last year, we made history with the first teleprompting system designed around an IP-enabled workflow that could also accommodate video workflows, with built-in analog and digital video inputs as standard,” explained Brown. “Our new IPS range packages the power of Intelligent Prompting in a cost-effective, easy-to-install, and easy-to-use solution that’s perfect for smaller IP-based studios, as well as corporate, educational, and government productions. This range is ideal for customers who want to take advantage of IP’s flexibility to avoid the cost and complexity of a video-based prompting infrastructure.”
More on the software
The WinPlus-IPS application connects over an IP network to a single controller –including a modern, customisable user interface, super-smooth scroll preview, and live script editing.
Users can connect any number of EVO-IPS monitors and Xbox-IP scroll engines. In addition, the Intelligent Prompting device manager enables users to monitor, control, and update networked prompting devices remotely. An HC-IP desktop hand control is supplied with the software, and optional, WinPlus-IPS-compatible foot and wireless hand controllers are also available.
More on the monitor
As the 'world’s first IP-only prompt monitor', the EVO-IPS id designed to offer a simple and flexible workflow, connecting directly to the user’s choice of WinPlus-IP or WinPlus-IPS software over an IP network and displaying smooth scroll prompter video without the need for an additional scroll engine. Standard-bright EVO-IPS monitors feature a 'super-slim chassis and lightweight design, with a depth of only 42 millimeters. All on-camera systems are designed to remove the need for counterbalance and make the teleprompter significantly lighter.
Autoscript’s new IPS range will be on display at the 2018 NAB Show at the Vitec Group stand, C6025. More information on Autoscript’s Intelligent Prompting and the IPS range is available at www.autoscript.tv.
