This wiki has been updated 17 times since it was first published in January of 2019. Not only does having to memorize lines and speeches take a lot of time on the presenter's part, but it can often lead to mistakes when on camera or unnatural pauses. These tablet teleprompters solve that problem, while being compact and lightweight enough that they are easy to take to outdoor filming locations. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

February 10, 2019:

Choosing the right teleprompter can be difficult, especially for those not too familiar with them. There are definitely a few things that must be considers before making a purchase decision. One of the first things to consider is how far the presenter will be from the screen. The larger the screen, the further away a presenter can be and still easily read it. If you are doing far-off shots and want the presenter to be able to see the screen without struggling, the Ikan PT-Elite-LS-TK is a good choice, as it can be seen from nearly 20-feet away. Another very important consideration is the makeup of the glass. The two most popular types of beam splitter glass are 70/30 and 60/40. These numbers represent how much of the light is reflected back at the presenter. Talent will generally prefer 60/40 glass, like can be found in the Proaim P-TP300, since it reflects 40 percent of the light back at them, making the words more visible. On the other hand, 60/40 glass causes the camera to lose about a quarter stop of light, meaning that your image will be darker. If you have a high-quality modern camera that can handle low light transmission and has a lens with a 2.0 aperture or lower, then then you can make up for this issue. If not, definitely stick with a 70/30 glass, which can be found in the Glide Gear TMP100 and Ikan PT-Elite-Pro. Ideally, any teleprompter glass should have a high iron content too. Camera compatibility and mounting options should also be considered. Some models, like the Ikan PT-Elite-LS-TK, aren't designed to hold a camera, so you will need to have a separate tripod available. On the other hand, models like the Proaim P-TP300 can hold both compact DSLRs and larger HD video cameras.
