Elgato has just unveiled a first-of-its-kind teleprompter designed to revolutionize video production for content creators. Demand for teleprompters is on the increase due to the growing number of people who now live-stream content, record podcasts, upload educational material, deliver training online, and more! By 2030 it’s expected the global teleprompter market will be worth $1.48 billion and devices such as the Elgato Prompter are the main reason. 

Unlike the best teleprompters of the past, the Elgato prompter attaches directly to cameras or webcams, enabling creators to maintain eye contact with their audience. It’s powered by a computer and comes with Elgato’s free Camera Hub software which can be used to display video scripts or stream chat effortlessly. With a built-in 9-inch screen it eliminates the need for an external smartphone or tablet – as used in some DIY alternatives – and it can even be used with applications such as Zoom.
