Readit Scholar HD is our latest portable Autoreader / CCTV system.
Weighing just 1.2 kg (2.6 lbs) it is the ideal solution for users on the go.
As well as full close up and distance CCTV functionality, Readit Scholar HD has the unique ability to capture both closeup (up to A3 or double Letter in size) and distant objects. Any text can then be automatically scrolled on screen and read aloud in seconds!
Compact with a folded size of just 28 x 17 x 4.5cm (11 x 6.7 x 1.8 inches)
Set up for document capturing, the camera is just 36 cm tall (14.2 inches).
Good height when in use of 40.5 cm off the desk.
It is 300 grams lighter thank the Scholar at just 1.2 kg (2.6 lbs).
720p (1280x720 resolution) up to 60 fps via single USB 2.0 connection (Core i3 processor required for 60 fps live view at full resolution).
Automatic switching between close-up and distance viewing modes as the camera head is lifted.
Open base design means it's easy to handwrite and read in the traditional video magnifier way, without the base getting in the way of the paper or book.
16MP sensor with A3 capture area down to 6pt text - this is 8x the resolution of the nearest competitor in the market that has a usable live image view.
Zoomed in, 4pt text can be captured and read with 100% accuracy.
21x Optical zoom (larger than any other camera)
The camera is optically and digitally stabilised (a first for our industry) meaning the Scholar HD is far less prone to shake and wobble than any other product on the market.
The combination of the 16 MP sensor, 21x optical zoom, optical and digital stabilisation means it can perform OCR at distance (for whiteboards and projectors) further away than a human with 20:20 vision can see - this is a unique feature again.
Full whiteboard and projector screen capture for easy navigation with trackpad / mouse, removes the need for the end user to constantly track around the board by holding and repositioning the camera, even if OCR is not possible (on pictures or non computer based text).
Powered via 1 USB 2.0 port. No separate battery to worry about charging.
Adjustable length, integrated USB cable - again this is unique.
Includes magnetic positioning guide with three positions: Storage, A4 (Letter), A3 (11 x 17) for easy positioning of documents for blind and well as low vision users.
Includes headphones and laptop rucksack with easily enough space for user's laptop, charger, books and Readit Scholar HD.
Readit Scholar HD has been specifically designed for the requirements of students, business professionals and anyone on the move with a laptop PC.
However, it also makes an ideal desktop solution that can easily be moved between locations (e.g. home and work).
Simply remove it from its included rucksack, plug into your laptop or PC and you have full CCTV with Distance Viewing, Auto Reading, Speech and more. Whole books can be captured, read and scrolled back automatically. The whiteboard can be magnified 40x and your handwriting can be enlarged as you write! Weighing just 1.2kg, it folds flat and needs no batteries so is extremely portable.

Letters, receipts, bank statements, text-books, novels, product packaging etc. are all read with ease. It's also a crystal clear HD video magnifier running at a smooth 60 fps.

Simply lift the Readit Scholar HD from its carry case, unfold the camera system and plug one USB 2.0 cable into your laptop or desktop computer and within seconds see the document you've placed under the camera read out aloud to you with scrolling text in your desired colour combination and size.
The Readit family are the only systems capable of capturing such large documents. For the first time, a standard size tabloid newspaper page can be captured in its entirety.
The camera is optically and digitally stabilised (a first for our industry) meaning the Scholar HD is far less prone to shake and wobble than any other product on the market. The combination of the 16 MP sensor, 21x optical zoom, optical and digital stabilisation means it can perform OCR at distance (for whiteboards and projectors) further away than a human with 20:20 vision can see - this is a unique feature again.
Readit Scholar HD features a high quality live view with up to 21x optical zoom which can be used for magnifying local or distance objects. 16 enchanced two colour combinations as well as full colour viewing are selectable, together with contrast enhancement for viewing even very faint documents such as receipts.
Capture 20 pages per minute and begin reading as soon as the first has finished processing. This is many times faster than using a scanner based reading system.
Once a document has been captured with Readit Scholar HD, you can quickly and easily export it directly into Microsoft Word (or your preferred text-editor). The document is fully editable and preserves all the formatting, layout and images. This is ideal for making a large print copy of the document whilst preserving formatting.
Alternatively, you can simply export the text with only line breaks preserved. This is ideal for making a text-only large print version.
Documents inside plastic folder wallets, glossy magazines and even crumpled pages are recognised accurately thanks to the powerful Readit software.
Readit Scholar HD is available in most European languages. Please contact us for details.
Thanks to its advanced software, Readit Scholar HD automatically straightens the spines of books for you - something which scanner based reading machines struggle with. It can also read labels on tins of food and even some prescription medicine bottles.
Simply lift the camera up and turn it to your desired target. You can either view objects in the distance with a full live view or simply capture your entire target and then move the image around with your trackpad or mouse. Images remain crystal clear even after capture thanks to Readit Scholar HD's 16 megapixel resolution. This process greatly simplifies viewing of distant objects.
