Computer Hardware Setup
A complete TeleScript computer hardware system consists of a computer (either laptop or desktop); a means to
connect the computer to the teleprompter monitor (scan converter OR a VGA cable* OR SVideo cable OR SVideo to
composite cable); the Telescript serial controller and a TeleScript security key. Optionally, a printer can be
connected for getting a hard copy of your scripts.
Below is a discussion of each of these devices, and how they connect to the computer:
Scan Converter
1. A scan converter converts the computer's
video signal, known as VGA, into composite
video – NOTE: Many current computers offer
an SVideo output. An SVideo cable may be
used with most TeleScript monitors (DV8
requires a special adapter cable). Also, a
SVideo to Composite cable may be used in
place of a scan converter.
Different models of scan converters are going to provide differing functionality, but
the general setup procedure is the same, as listed in the example below. Please
consult the documentation that comes with the scan converter for details on all of
the functions available and on how to connect it.
Connect the scan converter cable to the computer's VGA output.
There is a special cable that came with the scan converter (an example is
pictured at right), which typically has three VGA connectors on it. One, which
is typically blue, is a male connector (it has pins that stick out). This connector,
which may also have "PC" printed on it, should be connected to the VGA port on
the back of your computer. Most VGA connectors on the computer are also blue or
have a monitor icon next to the port.
If you're using a computer with an external monitor that connects to the VGA port
(such as a typical desktop computer), first disconnect it from the computer, then
connect the cable as described above, and finally, re-connect the external monitor
cable to the second blue connector on the scan converter cable.
2. Connect the cable to the scan converter's VGA input.
The other male connector on the cable, typically red and marked "scan converter", should be
connected to the VGA input on the scan converter. The scan converter's VGA connector is
usually a red female connector.
3. Connect the composite video from the scan converter to the prompter.
If you're using a Telescript prompter monitor, you'll want to use a professional-grade
coaxial cable with Male BNC-type connectors to connect it to the scan converter. Most
scan converters come with RCA connectors for video output, so you'll likely need a
Female BNC-to-RCA Male adapter (pictured at right) to make the connection.
Locate the composite video output connector on the scan converter, and plug in the video
cable using the BNC connectors (you may need the Female BNC-to-RCA Male adapter
mentioned before) Then, run the cable to the prompter monitor, and connect it to the video
Input.
Page 16 of 21
4. Connect power to the scan converter.
Finally, you need to power the scan converter, which is provided by either a standard wall-mount AC adapter,
or sometimes via a USB or PS-2 cable.
5. AC Adapter -- First, connect the end with the power connector to the scan
converter. Then plug the transformer end into a wall socket, power strip,
extension cable, UPS device -- whatever provides you with AC.
USB or PS-2 Cable -- First, connect the end with the power connector
to the scan converter. Next, determine what kind of connector the cable
has: a USB connector is rectangular at end and approximately ½'' in
diameter; a PS-2 connector has a circular-shaped connector with six pins
around a central post. Find the appropriate plug on your computer, and
connect it. Note that on most desktop computers, the keyboard and mouse
are PS-2 connectors. Simply un-plug the keyboard or mouse, plug in the
power cord, and plug the disconnected device back into the
power cable.
Serial Control
1. Telescript's custom serial hand control provides
direct control over the prompter, including
start/stop, speed, inverse video, previous and next
script, and other commonly used commands.
A standard RJ-11 cable -- also known as a
telephone cable -- is used to connect the
controller to your computer; an RJ-11-to-Serial
adapter then attaches to your computer's serial
port to complete the connection. (Both cable and
adapter are included with the controller.)
Connect the RJ-11 cable to the controller.
First, find the RJ-11 jack on the controller. If you're looking at the buttons on
the controller, the jack is located on the top. Then, just plug one end of the
RJ-11 cable into the jack, making sure the connector "clicks" into place.
2. Connect the RJ-11-to-Serial adapter to your computer.
First, locate an available serial port on your computer. A serial port has nine
(9) male pins in two rows. Simply connect the adapter to the port, and tighten
the mounting screws as you like.
3. Connect the RJ-11 cable to your computer.
Finally, connect the free end of the RJ-11 cable to the adapter that's
attached to your computer's serial port, making sure the connector
"clicks" into place.

Security Key
Telescript's security key "unlocks" the software, and allows the
prompting and Remote Update features to work. This is so that
the software can be installed on as many computers as you like,
but only the one with the security key attached will be allowed to
scroll and receive updates. This is Telescript's only form of copy
protection.
There are two types of security keys available: a classic parallel port dongle,
and a more modern USB token. Both provide the same functionality, but the
setup is slightly different.
Parallel port dongle installation
Locate the parallel port on your computer.
The parallel port is a female connector, approximately 2½'' long, with 25 pins in two rows.
1. Un-attach the cable connected to the parallel port.
If there's already a cable attached to the parallel port, un-attach it.
2. Attach the dongle to the parallel port.
Plug the male side of the dongle into the parallel port, and tighten the mounting screws as you like.
3. Re-attach the cable to the security key.
If you had to un-attach a cables previously, simply re-attach it onto the "pass-through" (female) side of the
security key.
USB token installation
1. Install the TeleScript software.
Before you attach the USB token, make sure that you have the TeleScript software installed.
2. Locate an available USB port on your computer.
A USB port is approximately ½'' in diameter, rectangular in shape. Note that a USB hub may be used to add
additional USB ports to a computer.
3. Plug the token into the USB port.
Simply put, just plug in the token and watch the computer configure it for you.
