Eyedirect Mark II with Foam Fitted Rolling Case

Product Highlights

  • Provides On-Camera Talent Eye Contact
  • 50/50 Beamsplitter
  • For Mirrorless to Digital Cinema Cameras
  • Supports Small to Large Diameter Lenses
  • Can Be Used as Teleprompter
  • Custom Cut Foam in Rolling Case

A flexible way of maintaining the eye contact with on-camera talent/interview subjects with your camera, the EyeDirect Mark II is more than just a teleprompter that feeds your on-camera subject lines to read, it also provides a way for your on-camera subject to see a variety of different views/images, all the while looking directly at your camera. Suitable for use with cameras from DSLR or mirrorless up to full-size camcorders or digital cinema cameras with large lenses.

As a prompter, the Mark II supports iPads/tablets up to 7 x 10" and 3/8" thick (neither tablet nor prompting software is included). It features a 50/50 beamsplitter that allows the talent to see the text without it showing up on your image. Removing the iPad/tablet is where the design of the Mark II shines, as it allows your on-camera talent to look directly at the camera, yet see the face the interviewer behind the camera. You can also insert a picture or headline into your subject's eyeline without having them look off camera to see it.

The Mark II allows you set up with the interviewer behind the camera and off to either side, and still have the on-camera talent make eye contact with the interviewer. Plus, you no longer have to worry about the interviewer leaning into the shot. Your on-camera subject maintains focus and eye contact with the interviewer while looking directly into the lens, and thus making a strong connection with the audience
The unit can be set up so that the interviewer can sit on either side of the camera without changing the functionality of the unit. This allows you to frame and compose the shot as you normally would, without compromises
The wing features 40° of lateral adjustability and 35° of tilt adjustment. This allows the interviewer to find a comfortable position while maintaining eye contact with the on-camera subject
Removing the wing allows you to install the tablet accessory, which in turns enables the unit to be used as a teleprompter
The Mark II mounts on an 18" long plate that mounts onto your tripod. This allows you to balance your system using a variety of cameras from DSLR and Mirrorless to ENG or digital cinema cameras, as well as using prime or zoom lenses
Made primarily from ABS plastic the Mark II is a lightweight system that features a 50/50 beamsplitter and can be used as either as a teleprompter using the included tablet accessory, or an optical device that allows your subject to look at the interviewer (or other person) yet maintain eye contact with your camera's lens
The unit supports tablets from 5.5 x 9" to 7 x 10"
The Mark II features a 160mm opening on the back for lenses. It includes a rubber donut that can be used with lenses with an outside diameter from 52 to 80mm
An included DSLR riser block enables using DSLR or Mirrorless cameras
You can adjust the height of the unit approximately 4.5" to center it on your camera
