Why struggle with expensive re-takes, camera talent drifting off script or a presenters loss of eye contact with the viewing audience?
The Datavideo Smart Phone Prompter Kit, TP-100, is designed to help you overcome
these problems by converting a smart phone (not supplied) into a low cost and effective prompter. Perfect for self shoot projects, video blogging or corporate video podcasts.
The Datavideo Prompter Kit for Smart Phone allows it to be used both on location and in a video studio. Prepared scripts or cue sheets can be easily loaded into the smart phone software from email and scrolled at a set automatic rate or controlled by a user with the wired remote for a more natural result.
A number of clear fonts, colours andtext sizes are available making reading comfortable from a variety of distances.
DV Prompter software now also available on the Google Android platform.
|Why does my DV Prompter remote not work after updating my iPhone/iPad to iOS7?|
|With iOS 7 you need to allow DV Prompter to access your microphone in order for the wired remote controller to function.
Here is how to adjust the settings on your Apple device:
1. Go to Settings > Privacy > Microphone
2. Activate DV Prompter (so that the slider is green)
3. Restart DV Prompter app
|I recently updated my Apple device to iOS 7 and now my remote no longer works. Is there anything I can do?|
|After updating your Apple Device to iOS 7 you may be asked a question about permission for the App to use the mic and Bluetooth connections. Please allow these permissions otherwise the remote may not work. If the wrong option was chosen then these features can be turned back on by going into General Settings on the Apple device.|
|My remote has paired successfully with my tablet device over Bluetooth but I still have no control over the script when using the DV Prompter App. Is there something I am doing wrong?|
|Check you are using the latest version of the DV Prompter App. If in doubt delete the App from the device, then download it again from the Apple App store or Google Play. The DV Prompter App Settings are important too. The Remote setting should be changed to Bluetooth before attempting to control the script scrolling etc. Try the above steps before contacting your supplier.|
|My Bluetooth remote has charged fully but does not pair with my cell phone or tablet. Is there something I am doing wrong?|
|Is the remote fully charged? If yes, try resetting the Bluetooth Remote next. To do this press and hold down the green play button until the LED glows red. Then try pairing the device and remote again.
Still not working? Clear, or delete, any items already in the tablet or cell phone’s Bluetooth list. On Apple iOS devices there is an arrow right icon next to each Bluetooth item previously connected. Tap on the arrow then use the remove or forget option. Android devices act in almost the same way with a settings icon instead. On Android devices the option may be unpair or delete. Once all previous Bluetooth items have been removed from the list then try pairing the device with the Bluetooth remote again. Try the above steps before contacting your supplier.
|My Bluetooth remote does not seem to be charging and the LED does not light at all when connected to my computer. Is there something I am doing wrong?|
|The LED light on the Bluetooth remote should flash red whilst charging with a computer. Make sure the computer is switched on during the charging process. Check the supplied USB cable for damage. If damaged try a different USB cable. Connect the USB charging cable to a different USB port on the computer, or try with a different computer.
Still not flashing? The remote needs to be switched on. Press the green play button on the remote whilst it is still connected to the computer USB port.
Still not working? The charge in the battery may be very low or empty. Leave the remote connected to the computer and try switching it on again after 15 minutes. Try the above steps twice before contacting your supplier. Do not open the remote or attempt to replace the rechargeable battery as you will invalidate your warranty.
