Magic Teleprompting, Incs founder, Japji Khalsa, has been working in the film and video business since before there were answering machines.
In 1984, Japji began the transition from a freelancer as grip/sound/stage manger to full time teleprompting operator and rental house.
He founded Magic Teleprompting, Inc. in 1989, the first teleprompting company in the San Francisco Bay Area. Not content to simply provide great service, Japji set on a course to create great software to provide that service.
MagicScroll for Macintosh, released in 1994, provides powerful, yet, easy-to-use prompting on the Mac platform. From version 1, to the current Version 5 for OSX, MagicScroll just kept getting better with features fine-tuned over nearly 20 years.
Over the course of serving the Bay Area film, video and stage community, Magic has prompted US Presidents, Olympic Champions, rock stars and many of the Icons of Silicon Valley.
But prompting famous people is not all there is to it.
We like Magic because:
They are professional, have a long track record and are committed to customer service
Their crews have the skills, patience, and demeanor to make amateur talent feel comfortable and confident.
Their knowledge, based on years of experience, means they can ensure the right prompting solution for different situations making sure your production has what it needs.
They have a large array of prompting solutions from handheld prompters, to presidential stage prompting, and are always prepared to prompt your next awards show or concert.
They have offices in the heart of San Francisco, and are close to downtown hotels, offices, the Moscone Convention Center, the Civic Auditorium, and all the large stages and studios. But they travel throughout the entire Bay Area and beyond.
They know their job and we do it well.
So whether it’s for a simple webcast, or a documentary shoot with an Interritron style unit, Magic Teleprompting should be on your short list. We have personally known and worked with Magic over the years. They have a stellar reputation and would encourage folks to get a hold of them. We like these guys and so will you. PHS says check them out.
