The Genustech ScriptShade Mattebox is a teleprompter developed in partnership with Interlogic Industries that aims to be an essential tool for bloggers, filmmakers and content creators, saving a lot of the pain involved in script reading.
The Genustech ScriptShade Mattebox developed in partnership with Interlogic Industries offers two-stage 4×4 filtration, offering both light control and teleprompter functionality. According to its Indiegogo campaign, the ScriptShade Mattebox is lightweight, portable, super easy to assemble and supports both smart phones and tablets to display scripts.
For now, the system is designed to be compatible with a wide variety of smartphones and tablets. However, according to Genus, dedicated Android and iOS apps are under developement, which will include compatibility with their optional Bluetooth remote in order to grant the user control over scrolling speed.
Watch the product demo below:
Interlogic Industries and Genustech are currently selling the basic ScriptShade Mattebox kit on Indiegogo for $594. Other teleprompter options in the market besides the Genustech ScriptShade Mattebox include the more affordable Glide Gear iPad Smartphone Teleprompter, which goes for $198 on B&H. It is very similar to the ScriptShade Mattebox but seems a lot less robust.
As stated by Genustech: “The professional appearance of the product is going to appeal to your end customer and there is the obvious advantage of one piece of equipment providing multiple solutions to your production needs”. Thus, the Genustech ScriptShade Mattebox makes sense not only when vlogging from home, but also when dealing with more professional production environments.
