Datavideo BVE Stand: i10 I n the wake of new prompting apps that support both Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android operating systems, Datavideo has unveiled a prompter rig that extends hardware support to Android tablets as well as the iPad and iPad 2. The Datavideo TP-300 Prompter Kit features a new adaptable mounting bracket that can be adjusted to receive virtually any 5 inch to 10.1 inch tablet. According to Allan Leonhardsen of the distributor Holdan Limited, “There are over 100 tablet designs currently in the market and the already diverse range of screen sizes is only likely to increase over the coming year. Datavideo’s latest prompter kit meets this challenge with a very cost-effective new system.” Like its sister product, the iPad-only TP-200 kit, the new TP-300 comes complete with a quick release camera plate, tablet mounting bracket, two-way reflective glass and black camera snood for a light and flexible production tool. The TP-300 is quick and simple to use: prepared scripts or cue sheets can be transferred into the free DV prompter app software on the tablet and scrolled automatically or controlled by a user with the wired or wireless remote according to the producer’s wishes. A number of clear fonts, colours and text sizes are available making reading comfortable from a variety of distances. It is ideal for use in either a theatre setting, or a video studio. The TP-300 is available now from resellers at a suggested price of £330 + VAT / Euros 399 and will be demonstrated for the first time at BVExpo 2012 in London.  www.holdan.co.uk OConnor BVE Stand: i30 O Connor will present the new Ultimate 1030D and 1030Ds fluid heads designed for full-format sensor, lighter weight cameras such as the RED Epic and Scarlet as well as the Sony F3 and Canon EOS C300. www.ocon.com ROOT6 BVE Stand: G30 Visitors to the root6 stand at BVE will experience the latest technologies from leading vendors integrated in workflows for file-based broadcast deliverables using the new standard defined by the Digital Production Partnership (DPP.)
