Tanner Teleprompting: we build confidence

We Bring Confidence to Your Event.

We listen to your needs and help you choose the best teleprompter. We then match our friendly, skilled teleprompter operators and large inventory with your event dates.

Our team delivers the teleprompter equipment, works with your crew to set it up, and formats the script. Then we train your speaker to look natural and authentic so they’re the hero. Afterwards, our billing is simple and straightforward.

We focus on teleprompter rentals around Sacramento, San Francisco, San Jose, Monterey, Napa, Silicon Valley, as well as Reno and Lake Tahoe. Our clients love our operators and fly us to prompt wherever their event is, worldwide.

You’ll see us teleprompting for political conventions, fundraising galas, commencements, sports icons, celebrities, CEOs, commercials, musicians, non-profits, and documentaries.
