SAPPHIRE is the newest portable video magnifier available in the 7" class of portable low vision devices. SAPPHIRE is the most attractively designed 7" LCD portable video magnifier that compacts like a laptop computer to protect the LCD screen and have a stylish consumer "look and feel" Its an ideal travel companion whether you take it with you to work, school, vacation, or anywhere you go..

Magnify from 3.4x - 16x by sliding the magnifier bar to increase or decrease the text to the size you need to best accommodate your vision. Easily change magnification on the newspaper or magazine from the headline to the article or from the standard text in a book to the footnotes at the bottom of the page. Adjust the tilt angle display screen to suit your viewing level and comfort. SAPPHIRE rests flat atop the reading material as you pull it across the page to read. Choose the display mode with the best contrast and comfort for your eyes from full color, B/W, Reverse (white letters on a black background) or any of 20 different text/background color selections.

To read three-dimensional objects like prescription bottles or canned grocery items, either hold SAPPHIRE in one hand or rotate the monitor screen over so the camera is in position. Read the label on a prescription bottle to the direction in fine print or the prescription number, or read the ingredients on a canned food item. A Freeze Frame feature allows a temporary video to be captured so you can read the image without holding the bottle, box, or canned item at the same time. Elevate SAPPHIRE onto its integrated writing stand for short writing tasks like signing a form or addressing an envelope. Since the pop-up writing position is built-in, there's no need to carry a separate writing stand.

SAPPHIRE offers the best combination of screen size, magnification range, battery use time (up to 4 hours), and compact portability of any portable video magnifier under $2,000.
