Setting up your teleprompter to see “eye-to-eye” on Zoom or Skype is easy. Let me guide you through the steps.

  1. Attach the tripod to the bottom of the Caddie Buddy teleprompter, with the adjustment arm facing forward.
  2. Adjust the teleprompter glass to a 45 degree angle
  3. Attach the webcam to the teleprompter and adjust it’s position.
  4. Attach the black fabric over the camera.
  5. Attach the power and HDMI cables to the Lilliput monitor.
  6. Place the monitor in the teleprompter tray, facing up with the buttons facing forward.
  7. Connect the webcam to a computer USB port
  8. *Connect the monitor to electricity and to the computer using any necessary adapters.
  9. Turn on the monitor and adjust your computer to mirror your screen.
  10. Adjust the settings on the monitor to flip the image and remove extraneous on-screen clutter. Follow the instructions in this video.
  11. Choose the external webcam in Zoom, etc.

*8 – depending on your computer’s input options, you may need an adapter. You’ll need something that is HDMI A Female on one side, and the other side is Male and connects to your computer.

If your computer has an HDMI A port, like my older MacBook Pro, you can connect to that with the cable I originally recommended. No adapter needed.

If your computer has HDMI Mini or HDMI Micro (not common) then the necessary cable is included with the Lilliput monitor.

If your computer has USB C ports, then an adapter like this or this is needed.

There are adapters for computers with Display Ports or Mini Display Ports.

This can get tricky and I’m here if you need me. You can setup a Zoom consultation for one-on-one attention.

 

By far my favorite teleprompter setup. This is the magic part that bounces the image onto a mirror in front of the camera.

This is a good size monitor for the stand and it inverts the image (that that when reflected in the teleprompter mirror is is correct.) You can also upgrade to the larger size. And you'll need the "A to A" cable below if you don't have a spare HDMI cable.

COVID Price Gouge Warning: Regular price is around $60, only buy now if you are OK paying inflated prices. However, no one charging regular price has them in stock. Here are some additional links if the above link is out of stock. Link 1, Link 2, Link 3.

If your computer has USB-C ports and no HDMI ports (like my 2019 MacBook Pro, or 2020 iMac) then you'll need an adapter like this to connect the monitor. You can also get a more versatile version.

Some PC laptops need this adapter to connect the Display Port to the HDMI cable.
This is the adapter I use for my 2013 iMac which has a Mini Display Port on the back. This connects to the HDMI cable
This table top tripod is a more professional way to add your laptop to your desk. And it allows you to easily adjust the angle. 
This cable connects the monitor to your computer and fits nicely into the teleprompter because the cable is bent to the side.

If you need more light on your face, this is a great option that can sit on your desk behind your teleprompter.
