Zoom Magnification

Easily zoom the magnification from 3.1x – 95x. LifeStyle is the only desktop video magnifier that features more than 150 magnification levels. The magnification increases in 1/10 magnification increments from 3.1x – 10x (for example: 3.1x, 3.2x, 3.3x etc.) and in 1x increments from 11x – 95x. You will have complete control of how much you magnify and how wide of a view is displayed on the screen so you can read comfortably and conveniently.


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.


See the difference in HD quality!


All the Features You Expect

LifeStyle is so easy to use! All LifeStyle models feature a simple front panel design. Power, Magnification and Image buttons are all located on the front panel.


A single Power button, powers on the unit. Magnification buttons are large and ergonomic push buttons. To increase/decrease the magnification, simply press the Up or Down arrow buttons. The LifeStyle will zoom up or down continuously (not to a limited preset number of magnification levels.) To select or change the Image mode, press the large Left or Right arrow buttons to view the different Modes. Color, Enhanced Reverse Image (white letters on a black background), enhanced B/W, normal B/W, or the most commonly used monochrome images like yellow text on a black background, yellow text on a blue background or green text on a black background.


Advanced features are available with LifeStyle HD. Set horizonal or vertical Line Markers to help guide reading across a row of text or separate columns of a table or spreadsheet. Create a horizontal or vertical window view by adjusting the Window mode button. For PC connectivity, plug in a DVI-D cable (included with the unit) from the PC to the LifeStyle, then toggle back and forth to switch between a full screen view of the LifeStyle image or the full screen view of the PC or Mac. (Mac requires aditional cable purchase)

Note: MicroSoft Windows Accessibility settings or computer magnification software is required to enlarge the PC image.



Choose 22″ LCD or 24″ LCS Screen Size

Your choice of a 22″ or 24″ wide-screen LCD screen size is available. Both monitors adjust higher or lower, tilt forward or back, and swivel left or right for optimum viewing height and angel comfort. As a macular degeneration aid, the display on all LifeStyle models may be angled slightly for peripheral viewing.


Smooth X/Y Reading Table

Moving the sliding x/y reading table allows you to visually track the words across the line more conveniently.
