Autoscript, a Vitec Group brand, today launched two control devices for its range of Intelligent Prompting solutions. These include the FC-IP foot control, designed to maximize performance and comfort for both standing and seated presenters, and the WHC-IP wireless hand control, which gives the presenter total freedom to move around the studio while controlling the speed of the prompted text.
“Both of these control solutions are key elements in our groundbreaking Intelligent Prompting range for video and IP-enabled workflows,” said Robin Brown, product manager at Autoscript. “The foot and wireless hand controls ensure productions have full flexibility to control prompting discreetly and reliably from any position in the studio.”
The new FC-IP foot pedal features an ergonomic design with an adjustable sensitivity range that allows users to configure the pedal from lightest to heaviest touch, ensuring that the presenter can scroll the text easily and at the desired speed. A unique programmable function button allows individual operators to save specific configurations to suit their needs. The FC-IP uses Power over Ethernet to simply integration and reduce cabling, and it can be configured and controlled seamlessly over an IP network using WinPlus-IP or WinPlus-IPS prompting software.
The Intelligent Prompting wireless hand controller (WHC-IP) is ideal for on-screen talent that needs to be in control yet on the move. Small and discrete, the controller fits in the palm of the hand and is easy to conceal even in the tightest on-camera shots. Like the FC-IP, the WHC-IP features an adjustable sensitivity range to meet unique user requirements, programmable function buttons, and remote configuration using WinPlus-IP. The WHC-IP transmits to the WHC-REC receiver with a range up to 30 feet, making it suitable for both large and small studios. The small and lightweight WHC-REC receiver is easy to position unobtrusively in the studio or lighting grid and uses Power over Ethernet for simplified power and network connectivity.
Autoscript’s full Intelligent Prompting range will be on display at the 2018 NAB Show at the Vitec Group stand, C6025. More information on Autoscript’s Intelligent Prompting solutions is available at www.autoscript.tv.
