Teleprompting company Autoscript will launch an application for its i-Series platforms that will interface with its WinPlus News or Studio software on Apple’s range of mobile devices.
After looking at how it could use Apple’s iPhone, iTouch and the iPad in a prompting environment, Autoscript developed its i-Plus software, which will allow downloading or transfer of scripts or runorders directly to the device.
Autoscript managing director, Brian Larter, said: “Although there are a number of very basic apps in this area, we wanted to offer a system the Autoscript way – properly researched, professional and integrated with the rest of our range of prompting tools.”
With the WinPlus System connected to a newsroom system, it will allow users to send a script to a reporter on location anywhere in the world.
i-Plus will be available on the app store for download from mid-September.
At this year’s IBC, Autoscript will also demonstrate new hardware and software features, including enhancements to its LED range of TFT on-camera units, which the UK-based firm says gives better performance and features.
