Q. What options are available for EZPrompt?

A. EZPrompt offers three very powerful production options:

  1. EZPrompt – Rundown Module can load multiple scripts in a single ‘session’ or ‘show’. This permits you to back-time the ‘session’ or ‘show’, and include ‘Breaks”. It is ideal for producing longer-form programs, or for commercial shoots where a number of different scripts must be loaded in the prompter.
  2. EZPrompt — Closed Caption Module can do Closed-Captioning in standard three-line, roll-up mode. Captioning requires purchase of a license for the EZCaption module, and a Closed-Caption encoder (check with EZPrompt Sales for the best prices on Link Electronics Closed-Captioning equipment).
  3. EZPrompt – PowerPoint Module can load and synchronize PowerPoint Slide Shows to your script. As the prompter scrolls, the PowerPoint slides change exactly at the point you want them to.
