I use a 30″ Westinghouse TV for one of my office monitors. Here is a case where the large screen comes in handy. I opened the EasyPrompter teleprompter in my browser and pasted in my text. I then went to the Start Prompter screen.
Then I placed my video camera in front of the 30″ monitor. There was some re-adjustment necessary, so that it would become less obvious that I was reading instead of just talking impromptu. I moved the video recording menu to a separate monitor, and then I started my video camera. I then clicked the play button on the EasyPrompter screen and started to read the text.
Here is a short example of using the EasyPrompter.com free online teleprompter service.
And here is the finished YouTube video:
