We have found WinPlus Remote to be an invaluable tool when more conventional prompting is either logistically or technically impractical. Previously we might have relied on presenters or reporters learning scripts and delivering from memory. Now we can deploy an iPad and simple prompting hardware and get a reliable prompter where otherwise we’d be struggling. There are some clever tricks in the setup that minimise the amount of data transferred during each update, so even on a low bandwidth connection we can still see script updates. We’ve used WinPlus Remote on numerous tricky live assignments with great success.
