This blog will look at what Portable CCTVs/Video Magnifiers are and go into more detail the benefits available for each of the ManoTouch 4, ManoTouch 5, and ManoTouch 6.

Portable CCTVs/Video Magnifiers

An electronic magnification device (often known as a CCTV) is a great device for a person who requires a high level of magnification.  An electronic magnifier, or a video magnifier, displays that magnification on a digital screen, freeing the user from small, physical magnifying lenses.  Portable electronic magnifiers can range from a 3.5″ screen up to something as large as a 12″ screen. Handheld cameras/magnifiers are designed for bringing the camera to the material to be viewed. They can magnify almost anything within reach, including labels on packages of food and medicine. There are lots of sizes, styles, and functions in an electronic magnifier, so be sure to find something that works best for your needs.
