The concept and evolution of prompt-it®
In 2009, prompt-it® was born. The original was invented to be compatible with mobile phones and called prompt-it® mini. The design was successful and hit all the marks. Setup was a breeze! With no tools required, it only took two minutes to assemble. It was lightweight, portable and affordable!
“Keeping a design simple is not easy. In fact, simple is harder to create because we had to really think outside the square to tick all the boxes,” explains Recky.
After the introduction of the iPad, prompt-it® mini was redesigned to the new dimensions of the tablet while adhering to the same principles that made the original design successful. This new design was called prompt-it® maxi. Within weeks of launching the prompt-it® maxi, hundreds were sold. It was an instant hit with professionals as well as amateurs and hobbyists. At its low price point, it was a winner!
Since the launch, prompt-it® has been committed to continuously develop and refine the prompt-it® maxi design. This is one of the many elements that make prompt-it® a success. That and the innovative, yet simple, design, along with the affordability factor has kept it a favourite amongst industry professionals.
The birth of prompt-it® FLEX – a world first in teleprompters
On Tuesday 15th September 2020, after having delayed for 3 months due to COVID-19, Kickstarter saw the launch of another world innovation. Recky & Richard created a 2-in-1 teleprompter, called the Prompt-it® FLEX, which can be configured for the use with a camera as well as in front of an audience.
This brand new teleprompter launched in 2021, and has already been sold in the thousands around the world. As COVID-19 reduced, and events spring back to life, venues as well as performers have purchased their 2-in-1 (camera + stage) FLEX teleprompter and never looked back. We are very proud of our teleprompter design and have been praised by many hobbyists as well as professional presenters for the clever and beautiful design finish of the FLEX.
