The NEW FUTURA™ Teleprompter
The FUTURA™ is a camera mount teleprompter that sits on your tripod between your camera and tripod head. The Talent will be looking directly at the lens of the camera when they are reading the text on the beamsplitter mirror.
What makes the FUTURA™ so special is the newly designed chassis system (The Sled) that features a new type of camera riser and quick connection mounts for the mirror assembly and camera mount. This new Sled is built to be quickly put together and taken apart without the use of any tools making it the most practical full-size teleprompter for traveling. It breaks down into three smaller parts that will easily fit into a Storm Case.
It is manufactured by Telmax Teleprompters, in our Vero Beach, FL. Production facility and is made from machined aluminum.
The 70/30 Optic Grade BeamSplitter mirror is the best quality mirror you can find. It is produced using one of the most sophisticated modern plating technologies available today. Being that the Beamsplitter mirror is the last optical coating between your camera-lens and subject, this should be as, if not, more important than anything else.
In the same way that you protect your camera lens with a plastic cover, the FUTURA™ features a plastic cover that attaches to the front of the mirror when the Teleprompter is in transport or not in use. This cover will keep the mirror clean and protect it from getting damaged. The plastic enclosure and mirror cover wrap around the mirror like a Turtle Shell.
Setting up and using the FUTURA™ is a breeze. In four simple steps, you will have the Teleprompter set-up and work. First, you attach the base plate to your tripod, Second, attach the camera mount and monitor mount, Third Attach the Camera, Fourth, attach the monitor to your computer. That's it!
This Teleprompter includes a four-user license of ZaPropmt Pro which is one of the best Teleprompter software solutions available.
Search all you want, but you will not find a better built, higher-quality teleprompter period.
The FUTURA is the perfect teleprompter for whatever your production needs are.

Monitor Choices for this Teleprompter:
- An LCD monitor that has no special functionality and only has VGA/HDMI input.
- A Professional Image Reversing Teleprompter monitor with HDMI/VGA/USB/COMPOSITE inputs.
When a teleprompter has a monitor attached to it, that monitor is what will display the scrolling text. This particular teleprompter displayed the text on a two-way mirror that is positioned directly in front of the camera lens.
If you have ever looked into a mirror you probably noticed that everything is backward in the reflection. With teleprompters the same is true. The reflection on the mirror of the monitor is backward and will remain that way until it is mirrored or reversed.
There are two ways to accomplish reversing the image. First, the software that is feeding the monitor could reverse the window it is presented in causing the reflection to look correct.
The other way is to use a professional monitor that has the built-in ability to reverse the image that it is displaying which also give the same result of correcting the reflection to look correct.
The main difference between these two types of image reversing is that when relying on the software, only what the software is displaying will be reversed. That means that everything else that appears on the monitor will be backward on the screen. For example, a powerpoint slide or webpage would appear backward.
When using a professional teleprompter monitor everything that appears on the monitor will be reversed allowing for a lot of really cool possibilities. For example, because the monitor takes a composite feed you can feed a live video conference or stream onto the monitor the image will look correct, or you can simply type something out in an MS Word document and it would also look correct.
This great teleprompter works perfect with both options and deciding between one monitor or another comes down to one simple question. How do you plan to use the teleprompter and what might you use it for in the future?
