Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) Magnifier

A Closed Circuit monitor and camera system that provides access to print and other materials by increasing the viewing size, contrast and brightness. Built-in controls are used to adjust image size, focus and video modes (i.e., b/w, color, high-contrast, inverse video). Some models allow the user to split the screen, displaying both material placed under the camera and computer generated output on the monitor simultaneously.
