LifeStyle HD Video Magnifier is recommended by many eye-care professionals for anyone currently using a magnifier of 4x or higher. The larger screen and high-definition make LifeStyle HD a great choice for reading books and magazines, reading and sorting the mail, viewing treasured family photographs and more. A high-definition image can reduce eye fatigue and the sea-sick sensation that some users report feeling after long periods of time using standard resolution magnifier. LifeStyle HD can be kept on your desk at work or on a countertop or reading table in your home, and can even connect to your PC or Mac to display what is on your monitor as well (Mac requires additional cable purchase).

The Benefits of a High-Definition Desktop Video Magnifier
The LifeStyle HD desktop video magnifier (CCTV) is one of the most popular products for the visually impaired, including people with macular degeneration. Introduced in June 2011, its one of the first high-definition desktop video magnifiers available on the market.
The LifeStyle HD video magnifier optimizes the high-definition image quality to produce a crisp, clear display. LifeStyle HD provides three primary benefits compared to a traditional standard-definition image:
Clearly readable low magnification starting at 3.1x
Sharp, high contrast text display
Vivid realistic color image quality
With the LifeStyle HD desktop video magnifier, many users can read at a smaller size due to its sharper image, thus seeing a wider field of text with more letters or words displayed across the line requiring less movement of the X/Y reading table. The lower magnification level allows a wider field view of photos and the natural color image shows more definition and detail.
