We have built an EyeDirect that is exactly the same size as the previous Mark E, but now it folds to the size of a thick laptop. The smaller size accommodates backpacks and travel restrictions like never before. The Folding Mark E (FMKE) functionally is the same device as its larger brother the Mark II, but the FMKE is designed for smaller cameras like DSLRs, C300/100 and prosumer cameras and is 1/2 the weight. The device comes with the iPad/tablet accessory.
Easy Set Up
We spent many hours building a robust, small and strong unit that can either be setup permanently… or repeatedly folded and unfolded for travel. The Folding Mark E has instructions and a video to help you with setup. We can assemble it in less than four minutes… but we have had a bit of practice! You too can work quickly with the Folding Mark E, once the baseplate has been adjusted for your camera. Just like its bigger brother, the filmmaker can either operate alone and interview at the same time… or have a more conventional set up with operator and interviewer. EyeDirect uses high quality teleprompter/autocue glass and mirror and has an adjustable sliding baseplate to balance DSLRs, C300/100s and Prosumer cameras.
Award winning, patented unit
Recognized at NAB by TV Technologies Mario Award, the EyeDirect was described as able to “demonstrate forward thinking and technical excellence”. The patented device offers an elegantly simple solution to a complicated problem. “Simple but ingenious”, says Philip Bloom.

PrompterPal turns your iPad 2 into a teleprompter/autocue. Configure the appearance and behavior to suit your needs and make use of several types of remote controls.
