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.
