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.
The tint free glass allows you to record a video through the mirror with flawless picture quality. The back side of the mirror is equipped with an anti-reflective coating, which prevents the appearance of double images that are commonly observed on some other systems.
How does a Teleprompter Work?
Teleprompter Manufacturers would not want me telling you this: the Glass Teleprompter Mirrors that we sell 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.

Glass Teleprompter Mirrors serve multiple purposes, since the camera is able to record directly through the tint free glass with full detail.
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 Thicknesses:
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).

Frequently Asked Questions
How Carefully is the Glass Packaged?
We have 20 years shipping glass, and make sure everything is perfectly packaged. If the glass should break, just send us pictures right away and we’ll replace it at no cost to you.
How Durable are the Mirrors?
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.
How do I find the mirror side?
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.
What Do I Use to Clean the Mirrors?
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.
What’s the Difference Between a Teleprompter Mirror and a Two Way Mirror?
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.
International Duties & Taxes?
Duties and taxes are billed separately for international shipments by FedEx or UPS.
How does a Teleprompter Work?
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.
What Angle does the Mirror Need to be at?
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).
How Good is Your Quality?
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.
Do You Offer Wholesale and Quantity Discounts?
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.
What Type of Mirror Coating is on a Glass Teleprompter Mirror?
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.
What is the Maximum Size?
2mm Thickness: 49″ x 70″
3mm Thickness: 40″ x 70″
4mm Thickness: 49″ x 70″
6mm Thickness: 96″ x 126″
What is the Lead Time for Custom Sizes and Samples?
Our Glass Experts are standing by waiting to cut and ship your order. Our priority is getting your order shipped quickly and accurately.
Do You Ship Internationally?
Yes, international shipping is routine for us. We will prepare all paperwork accurately to ensure a fast, easy delivery. Typically shipments via Economy arrive in one week, and Priority arrives in 2-3 days to many countries (Canada is usually 1 day). Please note that you will need to pay duties & taxes separately, which is charged on delivery by FedEx.
How Do You Ship Glass Without it Breaking?
We have over 15 years experience using the ideal packaging for each shipment, which is typically foam, bubble wrap, and edge protectors. We crate larger shipments. Our shipments are fully insured for your protection. Please inspect items on delivery when possible. If your shipment should arrive broken, please take a photo of the damaged box/crate (including shipping label), and a photo of the broken product, and we will be able to ship your replacement.
Can This Mirror be Used for Photography, Modeling, or Makeup?
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.
Is the Teleprompter Mirror Tempered?
No, the glass teleprompter is not tempered. It scores and breaks just like standard glass. We can temper it but it is not recommended. This is because tempering causes a distortion in the reflection which would make the text difficult to read. For that reason, you might consider the Acrylic Two Way Mirror if you are delivering an outdoor speech and need that extra protection.
