Teleprompter Mirror Product Information
A glass teleprompter mirror, also known as a beamsplitter mirror, is a transparent mirror that reflects text from your screen while a camera records through it. The back side of the mirror has an anti-reflective coating which prevents “ghosting,” which is a double image you’d see when using standard glass.

What makes a teleprompter mirror different than a two way mirror?
The glass teleprompter mirrors we manufacture are to the highest level of quality available–the same mirrors used in professional teleprompters costing thousands. Recording through them is tint-free and flawless in 1080p, 4k, and 8k.
Glass Teleprompter Mirrors are the same mirrors used in professional teleprompters, costing $20,000 and more. Our Teleprompter Mirrors possess the highest optical quality available for purchase, and provide flawless recording in 1080p, 4k, and higher resolutions. One side of the glass is mirror coated, and the other side has an anti-reflective coating. The anti-reflective coating will prevent any double reflections, allowing your camera to record through the glass with immaculate picture and video quality – while providing a crisp reflection of the text for the face of the video.

Teleprompter Mirror Features
Optical Quality Teleprompter Mirrors, also known as “Dielectric Beamsplitter Mirrors”, allow a camera to record through with flawless picture quality – while providing a crisp reflection of your text.The reflective side has a tint-free mirror coating, and the backside has an anti-reflective coating, to prevent a double image. Double images are commonly seen in cheap teleprompter glass and is also known as “ghosting.” In addition to squares and rectangles, we also offer trapezoids and other shapes.

Teleprompter Mirror Options
30R/70T stands for 30% reflective, 70% transparent. 40R/60T is slightly more reflective, while still offering great tint-free transparency for the camera. Most clients choose 40R/60T for the best of both worlds, but we offer both options to accommodate manufacturers and enthusiasts seeking a certain specification for their units.
2mm vs 3mm vs 4mm Thickness:
Optically, they are practically the same. 3mm is about half as strong as 4mm, so it’s only preferred for applications where you’re trying to fit the glass into a tight groove (an existing teleprompter you already own), or where you need a lightweight mirror. 4mm is stronger so that’s what many clients order. 2mm is typically a specialty item for teleprompter manufacturers, engineers, and scientists.
Standard vs Rounded Corners:
Standard corners are ideal for best price and going in a frame. Rounded corners offer a stylistic advantages when the edges are exposed, and avoid getting snagged on clothing in a presidential teleprompter setup (they’re less likely to be bumped).

The mirror coating is extremely durable and scratch-resistant. It is unlikely to be scratched by most objects. You can use paper towels on it without worrying.
The coating is applied to one side of the glass. In order to find the mirror coated side you can place your fingernail on the glass. If you see no gap between your finger and the glass, then that is the mirror coated side. You can learn more about finding the mirror coated side Here.
The mirror coating is very durable, so you can simply use glass cleaner and paper towels. Read our full guide on cutting, cleaning and maintenance with optical mirrors.
A Teleprompter Mirror is extremely transparent, so it is ideal for recording in the absolute best quality. A Two Way Mirror is intended for privacy, since it only allows 11% of the light to pass through the mirror. Read the full article on the teleprompter mirror versus the two way mirror.

Duties & taxes are billed separately for international shipments by FedEx or UPS.
An Optical Grade Teleprompter Mirror is created by dipping large sheets of low iron glass (color neutral) into a solution of dielectric filters (nanotechnology), which is then baked on for a permanent, highly durable bond. The dielectric mirror allows a precise percentage of the light to pass though while reflecting the remainder. Before the use of dielectric coatings, the old fashioned way of making beamsplitter glass was to apply a thin layer of silver nitrate and other metals (to prevent oxidation/tarnishing). This technique worked fairly well, but the resulting mirrors were tinted and easily scratched.
The Glass Teleprompter Mirror works great from any angle. When teleprompting, the glass is typical angled slightly more than 45 degrees for easy reading. For other applications, it’s usually at a 90 degree angle for observation (makeup mirror, model photography, animal observation).
We have been in the glass manufacturing business for more than 20 years and we’ve found that combining dielectric mirror technology with low iron glass, we are able to achieve the best quality on the market.
Yes, a decent portion of our sales are to teleprompter manufacturers. Bulk quantity shipments are our specialty. Please contact us with the size, quantity, and address for a fast quote.
A Glass Teleprompter Mirror coating is applied to low iron glass, which is a non-metallic, non-conductive mirror coating. This provides a much higher quality than standard metal coatings on soda lime float glass.
We can make up to 49″x70″ in 3mm and 4mm, and up to 69″x126″ in 6mm thickness.
The most popular sizes are 8″x10″ for iPad’s and 11″x14″ for laptops.

Yes, you can paint any part of the uncoated side with paint (spray or roll on) that is designed for glass surfaces such Rust-o-leum UltraCover 2x or High Heat, which you can find at Lowe’s, Home Depot, or Walmart. Make sure there is still an area in the center for the camera to shoot through. The best color to use is black (blends in with unpainted area the best). Be sure not to use silver or white paint. Mask off the area you don’t want to paint with blue painters tape. Important: use only Scotch Edge Lock painters tape for best results. Press hard on the tape to ensure paint doesn’t get under it. Practice on a sample mirror first to make sure you’re getting the desired effect.
Yes, Glass Teleprompter Mirrors work great for recording through the mirror, while seeing your reflection. To make the mirror more reflective, many of our clients paint the back black, or use a black vinyl to mask off the back, except for the camera area.
