New desktop video magnifiers.
The newest desktop video magnifier (or closed-circuit television)
in the Aladdin family of magnifying products is the Apex Pro, which
incorporates an adjustable flat-panel monitor with the same features of
the Aladdin Apex and Genie Pro. In addition, the Apex Pro is designed to
convert to a "cross-room viewer," which would allow a student
to view information written on the board, for example. Manufactured by
InSiPhil and distributed by Telesensory, the Aladdin Apex Pro is
designed to combine powerful magnification with a computer workstation.
A split-screen mode allows users to view magnified materials and
computer files simultaneously, or desktop and computer images can be
viewed separately with the click of a button. The Apex Pro 17"
features a 17-inch color monitor, 3.5X to 46X magnification, and is
available for a cost of $3,040. The Apex Pro 20" offers 4.4X to 66X
magnification on a 20-inch color monitor, and retails for a cost of
$3,395. For more information, contact: InSiPhil, 650 Vaqueros Avenue,
