What is a CCTV Low Vision or a Video Magnifier?

Also known as a ‘Video Magnifier’ or a ‘CCTV Magnifier’, it is an abbreviation for ‘Closed Circuit Television’, thus CCTV. As the name suggests, it involves exploiting the concept of a closed circuit television to provide for visual needs of visually challenged people suffering from a host of low vision issues caused by diseases like age-related macular degeneration, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, retinitis pigmentosa and so forth.

CCTV low vision aids are quite versatile, lending most of the vision and independence back to people suffering from low vision conditions with the help of visual magnification and technological advances. Depending upon the type of the device, tasks like writing, reading books and mails, enjoying a crossword puzzle, using work-related tools and gadgets and much more can be accomplished even with a single low vision assistive tool.

How Does a CCTV Low Vision Device Work?

Principally, such a device should be a combo of a high definition customized camera unit, a mount arm to help position the camera in a steady but hands-free manner, a viewing screen/monitor for display, specialized zoom lenses (sometimes offering as high as 82x magnification) and different viewing modes with variations in lighting, colour and contrast for optimal visual assistance. Most of these devices also come with a viewing platform designed to offer assistance in positioning books, images and other viewing material, so that they can be easily magnified and viewed.

You are able to control magnification, focus and a range of screen preference settings with the help of cctv magnifiers as they portray the optic information received through the camera lens on the monitor to view. The camera simply gathers the information by means of real-time video, which is then displayed on the viewing monitor. In fact, it is this real-time video magnification that turns these cctv low vision aids into such a great solution for activities like reading, doing crossword puzzles, writing checks or even pursue other hobbies involving intricate details like painting, sewing and needlepointing.

Are There Different Types of CCTV Low Vision Devices?

Yes, cctv magnifier low vision devices are available in different forms and types, each one with its own set of advantages. These include:

Free-standing Low Vision CCTV Units:

Also known as a ‘desktop cctv for low vision’, this is the kind of a low vision device featuring a flat platform at the base with a monitor above it. The material a user needs to read from, is placed on the platform and can be moved around to view it from every angle and direction. A high resolution camera hovering above the platform captures and displays the image as magnified and zoomed on the monitor as needed by the user. In some units, the base upholds the monitor as well while some come with a separate monitor that can be fixed on top of the reading platform at the base. The later ones also may allow you to substitute with a different TV or monitor in accordance to your needs.

Text-to-Speech CCTV for Low Vision:

Identical to the commonly used desktop cctv systems, these units offer you a magnified image to view on a monitor. However, these are also able to convert any text found in the image to audible speech, as some vision impaired people find this arrangement less tiring and challenging than the reading itself.

Portable CCTV For Low Vision:

As the name suggest, portability is the area catered with this type of cctv low vision devices. A type of portable low vision CCTVs has a camera mounted on a stand, which you can aim at whatever you want to view from. The best thing about such devices is that you can use them view objects close by and even at a slight distance from you. Some other devices in this category of video magnifiers are sized similar to a computer mouse, offering you the ability to roll them across the surface you want to read from, displaying the resultant magnified image on a TV monitor. Some models even offer a wireless connection between the two, the mouse-like magnifier and the TV.

Handheld Video Magnifiers:

These are usually battery-powered devices offering you a combination of a camera, light source as well as a small video screen, constituting a single handheld cctv low vision device.

Tablet-based CCTVs:

As the name suggests, these cctv low vision aids involve a tablet computer supplemented with specialized software and hardware (a folding stand, for instance), enabling the combination to be used conveniently as a portable desktop cctv. So, you are getting specialized video magnification features in them combined with all regular features of a computer tab. Most of them are also equipped with OCR and text-to-speech capabilities as well.

Head-worn CCTVs:

Earlier versions of this type of head mounted cctv units relied on the same mouse-like gadget with the image being displayed in a pair of goggles worn by the user instead of a TV/monitor. However, some recent technological advances have resulted in production of state-of-the-art head-worn low vision goggles not needing a separate viewing device. Instead, they rely on capturing and improvising real-time video to enhance visual capabilities of the legally blind or visually impaired users.

The number of CCTV magnifiers available nowadays is increasing, and so are your challenges in picking the right type of cctv low vision device most suitable for your specific visual needs. That’s why we have come up with a list of few basic questions and facts to consider before making the final choice. Those include:
