Zoomax Launches New 7-inch Handheld Video Magnifier, the Snow 7 HD, for Visually Impaired People

San Francisco, CA, (PRWEB) December 13, 2013

Since Zoomax introduced the 4.3 handheld video magnifier Snow into the global market in 2010, the Snow has been highly accepted and used by people with poor vision caused by retinal eye diseases such as glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, cataracts, and macular degeneration. People have used it to read price tags, a books name on a high shelf, labels on bottles, and menus, among other items.

Users of the 4.3 Snow strongly requested a high definition and larger screen for daily reading. Therefore, Zoomax created the Snow 7 HD, a new 7-inch and high definition handheld video magnifier with more features.

The Snow 7 HD inherited all of the previous Snows advantages, such as the high contrast black and white appearance, big intuitive buttons in a compact design, a friendly operating process, and a light weight. The Snow 7 HDs new features include a high definition auto-focus camera, and a 7-inch wide screen, which can be used at an ergonomic viewing angle. The screen also keeps more parts of the display text, photos, and objects sharper and clearer. The device can view objects up to 5 meters away, and the picture freezing functions are perfect for viewing products.

Even with enhanced new features, the Snow 7 HD is still an easy-to-use handheld video magnifier. With large, intuitive buttons, the Snow 7 HD makes daily newspaper reading and object viewing easier for visually impaired people. Users need only power on the device and open the reading stand before they can read books instantly at continuous magnifications from about 2.2X to 16X, or 12 high contrast color modes.

The viewing angle of the reading stand is not only good for comfortable reading, but it also ensures there is enough writing space under the camera. The Snow 7 HD allows users to take notes or do homework more smoothly; no more blocked views or the need to frequently move it while writing.

The Snow 7 HD is good company while shopping or traveling, as it weighs less than 480g and is designed in a small book size. The specially tailored resilient bag protects the Snow 7 HD from scratches and other damage.

Zoomax will continue to design more powerful and easy-to-use video magnifiers for people with visual impairment.
