We Bring Confidence to Your Event.

We supply teleprompters and training so speakers look natural on-camera or on-stage.

When America’s top CEOs and politicians need to talk with confidence, they hire us.

Tanner Teleprompting: we build confidence

How do our teleprompter rentals work?

We listen to you and ask questions about your unique event. This helps us choose the best teleprompter from our large inventory stored in Sacramento, San Francisco, and San Jose. We then match you with one of our friendly, skilled teleprompter operators.

Our team delivers the teleprompter and laptops to your site. We quickly set up with your crew. Then, we format the teleprompter script. Finally, we train your speaker to look natural and authentic. Because of this, your event flows smoothly, and you look like the hero.

How are we different?

We honestly want you to succeed. We’re local. We focus on teleprompter rentals for San Francisco, Sacramento, San Jose, Monterey, Napa, and Silicon Valley. Plus we give Nevada some love with Reno, Lake Tahoe, and Las Vegas, too. Clients trust our equipment and operators to make them feel safe, so they hire us to travel worldwide.

We’re innovative, love learning, and fully staffed, too. You get the best experience because we have a Technical Manager who constantly inspects and upgrades equipment. We have an Operations Manager who makes sure things are right for all sides for every event. Plus we have a great team that’s trained with the latest gear and scenarios.

We prompt for political conventions, sports icons, celebrities, CEOs, commercials, and rock stars. We rent teleprompters and autocue systems for fundraising galas, commencements, non-profits, and documentaries, too.

Here’s our teleprompter solutions:

19 inch teleprompter
Camera Teleprompter Rentals

Video teleprompter sizes range from our tiny 7″ handheld teleprompters all the way up to our gigantic 40″ megaprompters. They’re all quick to set-up on your tripod, Steadicam, jib, or go freestanding. We rent high-bright monitors and batteries for prompting outdoors. While we’re based in San Francisco, with hubs in Sacramento and San Jose/ Silicon Valley, we can send our team and our gear worldwide.

Teleprompting for Live Events

Presidential teleprompter rentals are designed for people using lecterns. Robotic rise-and-fall presidential prompters are great for when multiple people of varying heights are speaking. Downstage teleprompter monitors are best for speakers walking around on stage.

Interrotron Rentals

Be like Errol Morris with his riveting, direct-to-camera interviews. We’ve seen it mispelled as interrortron, interratron, interatron, interotron, interretron, and even nteratron. No matter how complicated it is to assemble, the results are amazing and we’re happy to setup and rent Interrotrons anywhere you need!

The EyeDirect Mark II
EyeDirect or VoxBox Rentals

These revolutionary interview systems get similar results to an Interrotron with less gear, less crew, and no electricity. We love renting to crews who fly in to our San Francisco Airport, stop by our nearby facility and use our gear in Napa, Reno, Lake Tahoe, and Marin.

Teleprompter Training and Rehearsal days

We offer pre-show teleprompter rehearsal days and training so you’re confident when presenting. Edit your teleprompter script and practice without a whole crew waiting. This helps you get a good night’s sleep before the event.

A word-wedge also known as a lyrics monitor contains the song lyrics for a singer to follow during a performance. The box is designed to look like a standard audio speaker to the audience.
Musician Teleprompting Services

We feed your lyrics into high-bright teleprompter monitors. They’re encased in shrouds so the audience can’t see your lyrics. They think they’re just audio speakers— not prompters. It’s our secret!

Remote Teleprompting Services

We control teleprompters or feed signal to presenter’s laptops in other cities. Because we do remote teleprompters and interrotron, you can stay safe on set or interview from afar.
