Autoscript’s prompters instill confidence in our on-screen talent and also integrate easily into our production workflow. The design of the E.P.I.C. with its all-in-one prompter and talent monitor set-up provides many efficiencies, and the units were delivered and installed in accordance with our strict schedule.

The world's first fully integrated prompting and on-air system brings major benefits:

  • Combines the brightest 17" LED prompting screen with an integrated 17" full HD-SDI on-air monitor
  • Solves the major operational problem of using on-air monitors – there’s no extra mounting bracket and therefore no restriction of camera tilt range
  • Uses 20% less power than a system made of separate components
  • Uses class-leading High Bright LED prompting screens with 1600 nits of brightness, a 1000:1 contrast ratio and a lifetime in excess of 70,000 hours
  • Simplified cable management – one power cable for the prompter and on-air monitor, while ClockPlus and TallyPlus are powered via 12V DC from prompter; the video signal loops through prompter

Now, combined with the MT-RED camera mounting system the E.P.I.C. 17" is even lighter, with a typical all-up weight of just 14.9kg / 32.9lb. The flexibility of the MT-RED design also removes the need for counterbalance weight for most configurations, making this the lightest 17" professional broadcast prompting system in the world!

E.P.I.C. brings the power of information into the eyeline of the talent

  • 2 composite video and 2 HDSDI video inputs
  • Remote control of inputs
  • Unique, adjustable, picture in picture functionality allows all 4 inputs to be shown

E.P.I.C. prompters are truly "smart" – bringing multiple benefits not only to the engineering team but also the talent and production team.
