Here’s how it works:
Your notes are displayed on your laptop or tablet and sit on the tray. Your phone (or additional tablet) mounts vertically behind the glass on a separate stand. The phone provides a display and webcam so you can maintain eye contact with your meeting. The notes appear only to you and are invisible to everyone else.
What’s the point of a Zoom Teleprompter?
Zoom meetings can waste of ton of time. By outlining what you’re going to say in advance, you can streamline your meetings and deliver accurate, detailed information. Bonus: you can also look directly at your team instead of your notes, just like a real conversation.
You can also plan out your jokes in advance.
You can use your favorite software for notes such as word documents and PowerPoint slides. Check out our guide to mirror flipping PowerPoint slides.
How to control your notes:
To control your notes, you can use a mouse, keyboard, presentation remote, or voice activated scrolling.
Why use a cell phone and not a webcam or DSLR?
By using a cell phone behind the glass, your team (or audience) can see you looking at them instead of being distracted by your notes. You’re keeping the lens close to where your attention is focused.
