The Smartlux® Digital is a revolutionary, portable video magnifier that has a multitude of features and easy to use interface. The large 5" LCD TFT display provides 5x, 7x, 9x, or 12x magnification (even less when used in hand-held mode) along with 5 different viewing modes that include full color, black on white, white on black, black on yellow, and yellow on black. Illumination is provided by 2 hi-tech SMD LEDs and the tactile control buttons are easy to understand and use. Images can be captured and up to 20 can be stored.
The Smartlux® Digital features a generous depth of focus and includes a stand that, when placed in its fully extended position, is ideal for reading. When placed in its half-extended position, it is ideal for writing. The two small SMD-LEDs on the underside of the device can be switched off when viewing other backlit displays, such as cell phones, to avoid screen glare.
The screen has a high resolution of 800 x 480 pixels, is hard-coated for scratch protection, and is made with an additional anti-glare layer of film. Simple control buttons are symbolically marked and there are only 3 to learn: On/Off, Magnification setting, and the Contrast Mode.
There is an automatic shut-off feature that will activate between 2 and 5 minutes of non use to save battery time. A protective zippered case, cleaning cloth and lanyard are included with each magnifier. For extra protection, the Smartlux® Digital Bumper can be purchased separately. The rubber bumper wraps around the magnifier to minimize damage if dropped.
My company has been a customer of Eschenbach for many years and have used many different products for our Low Vision consumers. Weâ€™ve always been impressed by the quality of the products and how responsive Customer Service has been. Most recently we had an elderly consumer who benefitted from using her SmartLux in her home. Her dishwasher broke down and she was able to use her SmartLux to take a picture of the serial number to order the replacement parts for her dishwasher. She was very excited about this! This is just one of many positive experiences with Eschenbach products that I wanted to share.
The Smart Lux is the perfect product for someone whose vision has reached the point that one magnification level will not work for them. As a Rehab Teacher, I find I have clients that might need only 5X for standard print but when they need to read small print such as on prescription bottles, directions on food packaging, and etc., they need 9X or larger. This product allows them the ability to use the magnification that is needed. Also, clients who have issues with some colors, they can simply use the feature to go to B&W or whichever color combo allows them to read/view item they want to see. I encourage them to take this product when shopping because so many times the prices and/or other information about something they want to buy is in very small print on the front of shelf; they can use the 'camera feature' to capture what they are trying to see and then enlarge or change color, as needed! The same camera feature can be used with controls of appliances or heat/cool systems. I love the versatility of this product and the independence it affords my visually impaired clients!! For the money, it is an excellent resource for someone who is working to remain as independent as possible!
The Smartlux Digital is our biggest seller in our practice. It is made very well and is also durable which is a great factor for older patients. My patients love it and say it is very "easy to use". Having 4 different levels of magnification makes this product useful as the levels of macular degeneration progress. GREAT PRODUCT!!!
The Smartlux is so user friendly for low vision patients. Training takes only minutes. Highly recommend this particular portable video magnifier.
As far as the SmartLux Digital, it is extremely well made, and functions as advertised for low vision reading.
