The first “2HD” electronic magnifier solution for perfect image quality

Other HD video magnifiers offer an HD camera, but not an HD screen. Zoomax is the first developer to present a truly HD device, with both HD camera and HD screen.

The FIRST and ONLY combined touchscreen & tactile interface

Zoomax developed the first combined interface, adding power of touchscreen while maintaining tactile buttons that are familiar to users.

Easy-to-learn touch gestures

As other manufacturers implemented all functions into complicated touch gestures, Zoomax indicatively redefined touch gestures into simple, intuitive movements that utilize only two fingers.

“One-flick” design to change contrast color

With “One-flick” design, users can freely “flick” their finger in any direction on the sensitive touchscreen to cycle through 11 color modes in order to suit their specific viewing needs.

Easy panning of captured images
