Who makes the clipboard with timecode readout that script
sups or the AD uses on set? I’ve seen them a number
of times but don’t know what they are called, it’s
a clipboard and a wireless transmitter that connects to the
TC out on the camera.

It's called the "Scriptboy". Just put the word into
a "Google" search and you'll see a bunch of related
sites. Most of these sites are for companies that rent the
product, but will also give you a product description.
Pie Town Prods.
The product was known as Script Boy, however, that company
went out of business with the passing of it's owner. There
is a new and identical product called Scriptlinc and you can
find it at Tai Audio (taiaudio.com) in the "new products"

They were made by a company called ScriptBoy and it was some
closely held. As I understand it, the owner/manufacturer died
and took his little secret with him (not much of a secret),
however Trew Audio in Nashville has either a knock-off or
the real deal.
They call theirs ScriptLink and the info can be viewed at
I’ve had one for 10 years now, and except for the clip
part of the clipboard not being strong enough to hold a nice
pack of script notes, it is truly one of the best tools I
ScriptBoy also used to make a larger than life timecode readout
that attached to the camera or to whatever you wanted. I can’t
find that anymore, so I’ll trade info with anyone who
knows where that device can be had.
