Bodelin created mobile teleprompting in 2002 and were the first to create a professional teleprompting App for the iPhone/iPod touch along with hardware released at NAB 2009.

Specifically made for the Apple iPad, the ProPrompter HDi is the ultimate full size mobile teleprompter. No AC power or external batteries needed as the iPad has a 10 hour battery. The iPad screen is roughly 9” in diameter and like the iPhone and iPod touch, can easily be read in bright sunlight. Though the iPad is relatively light at only 1.6 pounds, The ProPrompter design team wanted something secure and created a new camera bar, made of light, yet sturdy, aircraft aluminum, which attaches to the base of Pro, and most, consumer cameras. Next is a custom cut of 16:9 studio quality beam splitter glass encased in a padded frame, set in a high impact ABS hood. The key to the ProPrompter HD-I is an iPad specific bracket to securely hold the iPad without slippage when shooting handheld, jib or with a steadicam. This kit also includes the ProPrompter anti-reflection mask and the new ProPrompter handheld grip with ¼” tripod mount. Setup is about 1 minute and comes in a newly designed SKB waterproof military grade case. The customer provides their iPad and purchases the ProPrompter App ($9.99) from the iTunes App Store.

An App Store Staff Favorite, the ProPrompter App for iPhone and iPod touch launched in January 2009 is the first professional teleprompting App. Four free feature updates later, plus a Remote Control feature and a universal app for both the iPhone/iPod touch and the iPad.
