All of our rates - by category and add-ons.


Rates for Thru the Lens prompting

Camera prompting system includes:

  • Computerized prompting workstation
  • Thru-the-lens or stand mounted prompter with beamsplitter
  • Qualified prompter operator (deliver, setup, and operate)
  • Per 10 hour day = $700

Rates for Eye-to-Eye prompting

Our interview style prompting system includes:

Please note that:
  • You'll need to provide an EXTRA camera for placement on the prompter in front of the interviewer.
  • BOTH cameras must output an NTSC/Composite signal for feeding the other prompter screen.
  • We highly recommend your sound department come prepared to mic the interviewer and feed a small anchor/speaker placed near the prompter in front of the subject. This makes it more natural for the person being interviewed, as he/she will hear the voice coming from the prompter screen rather than have to look at the interviewer's face in the screen while hearing their voice come from somewhere off camera.

    Most stage/meeting venues within San Francisco are under IATSE Local 16 jurisdiction, and require a different rate structure. See our page on Union Venue prompting solutions.


IATSE Local 16 Union rates for stage & live prompting

For San Francisco venues under IATSE jurisdiction, our rate structure is slightly different than other venues. In these cases, we rent you the teleprompting equipment, and then you hire one of our operators through the Union -- and payroll that person separately.

OUR person will be put on your payroll -- whether it's your company running the payroll or a labor contractor -- though we don't know the hourly rate for this. We do know that Prompter goes into the labor call as Head of Department and is on an 8 hour minimum.

Stage Prompting system at IATSE venues includes:

  • Computerized prompting workstation and backup computer.
  • Ability to output signal to DSM's (Downstage Monitors) in Composite/NTSC or VGA modes
  • Rate for Calendar Day = $400
  • Delivery and return of gear by the designated operator is included.
  • NO LABOR IS INCLUDED WITH THIS GEAR - See note above.
  • Optional: Presidential style paddles/mirrors/monitors = $100
  • Optional: Qty 2 - 22" monitors placed in stands on stage = $100
Please note that:
  • These rates are for GEAR ONLY when prompting a venue that is under IATSE jurisdiction.
    Because you'll be booking our operator through your labor contractor, our person will arrive with the gear on the initial call, and will strike and return the gear after teardown.
