Remote teleprompting is a snap with the video conferencing software, Zoom.
With Zoom, I can easily share my teleprompter software window through a secure connection and work with you to prepare for an in-person or virtual event.
Below, you can see what it looks like when I’m sharing my screen with you in Zoom.
You can either full-screen the teleprompter window or create a window box in any area of your screen, leaving the rest open to multi-task or refer to a keynote or powerpoint.
There’s also a cool feature in zoom that lets me replace my webcam with the prompter window — so you can have rolling notes and a powerpoint seamlessly going at the same time.
You should position the teleprompter window near your computer’s camera to achieve the best possible eye-line — you can also use a tablet or a phone on a stand.
Like when you had a session with a teleprompter operator in person, you were used to fast edits and accurate scrolling — you get the same effect with remote teleprompting!
I am able to make quick changes, edits and move around the script with ease — this is especially helpful for webinars and virtual town-halls.
So think of this service as everything you’re used to — but in a remote setting!
What’s great about having a teleprompter operator instead of scrolling for yourself or relying on voice-activation is that you can engage with your audience and not worry about moving the script forward or dealing with an unreliable artificial intelligence.
We scroll for a living and can easily get in sync with your rhythms and groove with you, but we do recommend setting up several rehearsals before the event.
