    When doing presenting from an outside location do Sky use portable autocues on the camera?

    Some presenters don’t need autocue they can ad-lib.

    If someone has a radio background they can generally ad-lib quite comfortably. Otherwise it requires the costly and labourious task of using

    Portable autocue.

    the autocue doesn’t actually have any connection with ad-libbing though. the autocue displays the script and scrolls up as the presenters read it. ad-libbing is basically a term to describe filling time.

    autocues are needed by presenters because there is absolutely no way of ad-libbing through a whole 4 hour shift – no matter how good the presenter is
