The first picture (upper left) shows the teleprompter being driven by my Toshiba laptop (and yes, that is TLG in the background). The teleprompter LCD monitor is cloned off the desktop so the images should be identical. You will note, however, the the image is reversed due to being reflected off the reflecting glass. The upper right pictures shows the laptop running Prompt! Lite software in "reverse" mode. Now the image on the laptop is reversed but the image from the teleprompter is readable.

The view above left showes the teleprompter in action from the talent's POV. Note the light coming through the access hole for the LCD monitor power button. I still need to cover that up. The upper right picture shows what it looks like without the matte board cover over the camera.

Note: When you look at these images close up you will note that the images are a bit fuzzy. This due to the fact that you are actually seeing TWO reflections from the LCD monitor. One from the front face of the reflecting glass and the second from the rear face of the reflecting glass. A reflecting glass with partial mirroring and a non-reflective coating would prevent this annoying problem.
