Deployed in Broadcast Environments Worldwide, Master Series Continues to Develop Based on User Requirements
LONDON — April 5, 2018 — Autocue, a Vitec Group brand, today announced a significant upgrade of its field-proven Master Series of teleprompters. Offering a cost-effective, video-only prompting solution for any broadcast operation, the Master Series now includes inputs for all standard video formats including HD-SDI/SDI and HDMI, as well as increased brightness of 1500 nits and contrast of 1000:1 to make the monitors clearly readable in any light. The newly upgraded Master Series will be on display at the 2018 NAB Show at the Vitec Group stand, C6025.
“Our Master Series offers a powerful and cost-effective choice for customers looking to upgrade their prompting workflows to any video format,” said Ginny Grove, product marketing manager, Autocue. “And of course, these newer, brighter monitors are backed by Autocue’s renowned quality, reliability, and built-in flexibility.”
The newest versions of Autocue’s 17-inch and 20-inch Master Series teleprompters retain the durable metal monitor casing and the robust and flexible on-camera mounting system already deployed by hundreds of broadcasters worldwide. Now with HD-SDI/SDI, composite, and HDMI video input options, the monitors are compatible with all video scroll engines including Autocue’s QBox v6. The monitors are easier to read than ever, with high brightness and high contrast. A built-in tally shows the camera’s status, and optional tally and clock accessories can be added to give the on-air talent all the information they need to make a professional presentation without having to look away from the audience.
