#ACB17 Audio: Distance Viewing and OCR in The Palm of Your Hand with the Optelec Compact 6

The Optelec US Twitter account suggested that attendees should visit the VFO booth to see the newly announced Compact 6, so Joe thought he should do just that. hear Joe Chung, Director of Sales and Professional Products - Western United States for VFO, take us on a tour of the feature set of the new portable Video Magnifier now debuting in the Compact line. A physical description, a discussion of the touch interface and some good use cases for the unit are sprinkled throughout this interview. The Compact 6 is in the pre-production portion of its life cycle with a launch of the product coming very soon. To learn more about this magnifier, and other brands within VFO, visit the company's website.
