Prompting Services and Software


Magic Teleprompting, Inc's 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 keeps 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.

  • With offices in the heart of San Francisco, we're close to downtown hotels, offices, the Moscone Convention Center, the Civic Auditorium, and all the large stages and studios.
  • We know our job and we do it well.
