Eliminate camera fear

Simplify your shoot

Look and sound more professional

Through-the-lens precision

PromptDog is compatible with all professional teleprompter hardware that uses beamsplitter glass placed in front of the camera.

The smooth scrolling text floats magically in front of the lens but remains invisible to the camera.

Through-the-lens style teleprompter setup
Camera over laptop

Above/below the lens

Use any one of several options available to mount your PromptDog display monitor above, below and even beside the camera lens and still get great results.

Follow a few simple rules when using this setup and most people will be hard-pressed to tell you are not using purpose-built hardware.

Work with an operator or solo

PromptDog supports the use of separate windows for the presenter and an operator, both perfectly synchronized and resizable.

Working alone? PromptDog makes it easy to pull this off with keyboard shortcuts that can be mapped to compatible remote controls.

Display monitor options

Your choice of display

PromptDog requires no special display equipment. Use your existing desktop or laptop screen mounted under the camera or connect any external flat panel LCD/LED monitor.

Professional teleprompter hardware will often ship with a screen included and even small field monitors can be a viable option.

Send to your tablet

Display your PromptDog output on an iPad or Android tablet!

Several inexpensive 3rd party apps available for both Windows and macOS allow you to display PromptDog output on a tablet. You can even use your tablet with purpose built through-the-lens hardware.

Send display output to a tablet

Work offline

Don't let a slow internet connection or weak WiFi signal ruin your shoot!

Unlike browser-based alternatives, PromptDog is a Windows and macOS application that doesn't need an internet connection to operate.

"The first time I stepped in front of a camera, I thought there was something wrong with me"

Hey, we get it. 

If you're anything like us, you still have nightmares about the first time you tried to "wing it" or present a script from memory.

The only thing I memorized was the pain involved. It's burned into my mind.

Truth be told, you probably knew you were in trouble even before you stepped into the glare of the studio lights.

But you tell yourself, “I can do this!”

Fighting to keep a lid on your nerves, you dare to look at the camera.

Your teammate offers a gentle nudge . . . “when you’re ready”.

Frustrated presenter

You instantly forget everything you wanted to say. Total brain freeze.

Desperate to recall the flow of the script you thought you knew well, you break out in a sweat.

And incredibly, things go from bad to worse.

Arghh, what a mess!”

Embarrassed and frustrated, you finally admit defeat.


But it doesn't have to be that way.


Remove the roadblock. 


Accelerate your success by joining the hundreds of professional video production teams that use PromptDog every day.

Will PromptDog run on my iPad or Android tablet?

While PromptDog can’t be installed natively as an app, you can display the PromptDog output on either an iPad or an Android tablet and achieve the same result.

There are several 3rd-party apps available which are designed specifically to use your tablet as a second monitor for your desktop or laptop computer. Our favorite is Duet Display.

Can I use my laptop webcam with PromptDog?

You could, but we don't recommend it. For best results, the talent (presenter) should be positioned at least 10 ft away from the camera. Any closer and viewers may detect side to side eye movement as you read each line of text.

Most webcams have a fixed focal length (ie no optical zoom), so if you are correctly positioned the shot framing will probably be less than optimal.

The good news is that if you have a smartphone, you can use a lens adapter like this one to add optical zoom functionality to your phone's HD camera.
