Exclusive: HumanWare to Unveil SmartView 360 Desktop Magnifier


We've obtained literature from HumanWare regarding a forthcoming magnification product for low vision users called the SmartView 360. The 360 refers to the ability of the camera to tilt in various directions. It includes three viewing modes, desktop, distance and self view and features a 19-inch LCD monitor. No pricing information is available. We've included a text version of the brochure after the jump.

A clear view in every direction
It’s easy to rotate, point and position the SmartView 360’s camera
to where you need to see — either in front of the monitor or to
the side. When moved from one position to another, the camera
parameters are automatically saved to memory for quick recall.
View text in a book with the black and white enhanced contrast
or simply twist the camera for a full-color image of a blackboard
or presentation screen.
Quick and easy to use
Use the camera’s precise zoom control
to adjust the magnification in precise
steps to the level that best suits your
needs. Just one press of a button quickly
switches from seeing the image in full
color to viewing text in an enhanced
contrast mode. Press the “find” button
for a quick overview of what you are
viewing and to easily locate what you
want to magnify.
Fits any workspace
The SmartView 360’s compact design
takes up less desk space than 2 sheets of
paper. Whether you place material in
front of the monitor or to the side, the
camera is easily moved to view multiple
documents spread over your workspace.
"I love my SmartView 360
because the camera is so
flexible. If I want to look at
something that's close or far
away, it's so easy to just
point and zoom!"
