AirTurn has a great simple kit that gives musicians and performers of all types the freedom of wireless control of their tablets and computers.
With the advent of affordable tablets with high quality displays, many musicians have turned to using their tablets to store their music and many camera personalities have turned to their devices as all in one tele-prompting systems. The issue lies in control of their devices while in a live environment.
The AirTurn Hands-Free Page Turner is a great new system that allows performers to control their screen devices wirelessly and discretely. The kit includes an AirTurn BT-105 Bluetooth transmitter, which acts as a Bluetooth keyboard. Different modes allow for the integrated switches to act as different page movement controls based on the need. (Either page up/Page Down or Up Arrow/Down Arrow).
Using the included two ATFS silent foot pedals, a performer can advance pages of music or start and stop prompts from their tele-prompt software. There is a wide range of software compatible with the AirTurn on the AirTurn website.
The transmitter itself contains an internal USB-charged battery that lasts for a significant amount of time, and the kit as a whole is very durable and well made.
Syncing the AirTurn to my iPad was effortless, and my Teleprompt+ software recognized it right away, giving me start and stop control of my scripts via my off screen feet. The pedal action is silent, easy, and accurate.
The AirTurn Hands-Free Page Turner is a great kit for musicians and other stage professionals who need a silent way to control their digital prompters.
You can find the AirTurn BT-105 kit at various retailers for about $120
