Introduction
The DVP-100 wireless prompting system is a teleprompting system that is compatible with Apple,
Windows, Android, and iOS devices.
The DVP-100 creates its own dedicated Wi-Fi hotspot allowing the production team to connect up to six
devices for prompting purposes. Once connected to the DVP-100, each device can be set to be either be
a controller, an editor or a prompting screen.
A controller device allows the user to load new scripts, control the current prompting session or perform
a live edit, in real time, on the prompting screens.
All scripts are stored centrally on the DVP-100 and not on the prompting devices. This also allows playlists
to be created where the running order can be changed or added to on the fly.
As well as using normal copy and paste functions, scripts can be imported from .txt or html files allowing
existing content to be repurposed quickly and easily.

controller, a prompter screen or a script editor.

Controller Page
Here you have control of script playback options on all connected prompter screens.
Return to Home page
Clicking or tapping on the Home icon will return the device to the Home Page options again.
11
Prompter Page
Devices set by this icon are prompter screens. These prompting devices must have the same screen
resolution in order to stay in sync. The best way to do this is to make sure the devices used are identical
units.
Note: Scrolling performance depends on the CPU and graphics performance of the device. The iPad 4 and
above have adequate resources for smooth scrolling, Android devices may vary depending on specifications.
When using the DVP-100 iOS app this will automatically snap to full screen when in Prompting.
When using computer tablet based web browsers, the F11 function key is used to go to full screen mode.
Mirrored text view
Tapping or clicking once on the script will toggle the text scroll between Mirrored view and Normal view.
Return to Home page
Double clicking or double tapping on the prompting screen will return the device to the Home Page options
again.
Script Control
Use a device in Controller mode or a compatible bluetooth remote, such as the WR-450, to control the script
playback.
12
Script Editor Page
Here you can load or create or edit scripts.
Creating & Importing Scripts
You can create a script by typing directly into the rich text editor shown below or by importing files with the
‘Choose File’ button. Both simple text (.txt) and web (.html) files are supported.
Editing Scripts
When a script is loaded into the dvPrompter Pro system and a change is made, that change will not be
immediately reflected on the prompting screen(s) until the script is saved and re-loaded.
However, if the ‘realtime editing’ option is checked, any changes made in the text editor will be reflected in
real time on the scrolling prompter screens.
13
Loading Scripts
Once a script has been saved, you will be returned to the main scripts page.
Click or tap on the saved script that you wish to load.
To load the script into the prompter, click the ‘Load into Prompter’ link and the script will load for playback.
14
Playlist
On the previous page we saw how to select and load a script into the prompter. Alternatively you can add
the selected script into a playlist of scripts. This feature allows you to create a possible running order of
scripts.
Once a script is added to the playlist, it can be conveniently loaded from the controller page.
When looking at the playlist, each icon to the right of a script has a different function.
Using the first two Icons allows the script to be moved up or down the running order.
The third icon allows playback of the selected script on the prompting devices.
The x icon removes the selected script from the playlist but does not delete it.
