I am using a Prompter People teleprompter for studio shoots, and I've been using a program called Prompt Dog to drive the prompter. What I like about the software is that it is able to mirror the text that is sent to the prompter, while showing unmirrored text on the operator's laptop, so I don't need a converter box to do the job.
What I don't like about the software is just about everything else. I can't get it to accept RTF files (which it says it can use, and it chokes on plain-text files of any size at all. Basically, it goes into its load routine and never comes out. So, I'm looking for new teleprompter software.
What would you recommend? I'd like to find a commercial-grade program that can do the prompter-only mirroring, but I suppose it's not essential. What's really important is that the software be able to handle 15-minute scripts without freezing or crashing. Thanks for your help.
