Autocue QStart for Windows prompter is now free
Vitec Videocom brand Autocue is showing how teleprompting can save your production time and money by making the unlimited version of its QStart teleprompter software free to everyone. Effective July 1, Autocue’s Windows/OS QStart software is free to all users with or without hardware.
“Our philosophy at Autocue is that every production can benefit from a teleprompter”, said Robin Brown, Product Manager. “From an improved production workflow and increased confidence of on-screen talent, teleprompters help you get it right on the first take. Now anyone can take advantage of this renowned industry tool, within moments they can download the software and get prompting.”
Unlike many free teleprompters online, Autocue’s QStart is downloadable software that can be used offline. This entry-level teleprompting application is based on the renowned QMaster software that is used for leading broadcasts and public events around the world.
Autocue’s QStart is easy to use, featuring multi-language text and menus, and icon-based action buttons. Scripts can be easily imported from .doc, .rtf and .txt files. In addition, QStart offers script markers and assignable hot keys for added speed and flexibility.
Autocue’s QStart software is a timesaver, reducing the number of takes for faster production and post production. Users have the opportunity to control the speed of the text by keyboard or mouse. Alternatively, Autocue offers a wide range of wired and wireless hand and foot controllers to allow precise operator or talent control.
