Powerful and Versatile Magnification

The small yet powerful ONYX® Swing-arm camera provides magnification up to 100x and is uniquely mounted on a swinging arm to provide you with three distinct views: distance, document, and self-views. Easily connects to any VGA monitor or NTSC TV for an affordable video magnification solution.

The 11 3/8-inch workspace under the camera provides the room you need to work on objects with your hands and tools. Use the Find Feature to aim at a distant object before zooming in. Auto Focus eliminates the need for constant refocusing as the viewing field changes.

The many features of the ONYX Swing-arm include:

  • Four high-contrast modes: color, inverse color, enhanced black on white, enhanced white on black
  • Brightness adjustments
  • Masking and Reading Lines
  • Find Feature
  • Focus Lock
  • Freeze Frame
  • RF remote control
  • Detachable camera
  • Universal 110-240 volt power supply
  • Magnifies up to 100x, based on a 20-inch NTSC TV screen

Putting You in Control

Change the magnification, brightness, contrast, and tracking features with a unique and easy-to-use RF remote control.

Use Focus Lock to keep an object or document in focus when working or writing under the camera. There is no need to touch the camera once it has been set, and you don't even need to point the remote control at the camera as with an infrared remote control.

With the ONYX® Swing-arm PC Edition, your PC becomes a powerful vision tool that brings your digital world and physical world together seamlessly in an intuitive work environment. Work with a magnified PC screen and view magnified camera images at the same time.

Featuring a small but powerful camera that provides magnification up to 75x on a 15-inch screen, the ONYX Swing-arm PC Edition creates clear magnified views of your documents and distant objects. It’s ideal for use in workplace environments and classroom situations. The ONYX camera moves quickly and easily back and forth between three distinct views: distance, document, and mirror image self-views. 

Complete View Management on Any PC

The ONYX Swing-arm PC Edition features USB connectivity to any PC and comes complete with Freedom Scientific’s MAGic® Screen Magnification Software with Speech. The addition of new MAGic EyeMerge® features means you get powerful distance and up close magnification, PC screen magnification, and the ability to customize, save, and manipulate images to maximize productivity when working with a PC, documents, and/or viewing a presentation or lecture.

Productivity in Overdrive

Increase your productivity by quickly capturing multiple snapshot views of a blackboard, for example, so that you can easily flip through them on your PC rather than constantly panning and readjusting the camera. Capture blackboard or presentation images before they are erased or removed and save them as your notes. 

The unique Position Sensor function retains your settings in each of the three modes — distance view, document view, and self-view — so there is no need to readjust the camera as you move from one view to another and back again.  

Total Fingertip Control

The easy-to-use RF remote control means there is no touching or jiggling the camera once it is aimed. And because the remote control does not need to be pointed at the camera — as is the case with a typical infrared remote control unit — ONYX Swing-arm PC Edition users have complete freedom of movement.

Positioning Options for Any Task

The ONYX® Flexible-arm camera can be configured in any number of adjustable positions to accommodate almost any viewing need – even working with three-dimensional objects. The camera delivers magnification up to 100x the original size (based on a 20-inch NTSC TV screen) and provides three distinct viewing options: distance, document, and a self-view with a true mirror image.

With a total extended reach of up to 32 inches and the ability to rotate on any of four axes, the ONYX Flexible-arm is both a long-distance magnifier and a fine-detail magnifier, all in one lightweight and portable low vision tool.

The Features of the ONYX Flexible-arm Include:

  • Four high-contrast modes: color, inverse color, enhanced black on white, and enhanced white on black
  • Omni-directional articulating arm
  • Brightness adjustments to eliminate glare and enable viewing in low-light environments
  • Masking and Reading Lines
  • Find Feature
  • Focus Lock
  • Freeze Frame
  • Position Sensor memorizes your settings in each viewing mode
  • RF remote control
  • Detachable camera
  • Universal 110-240 volt power supply
  • Magnification up to 100x, based on a 20-inch NTSC TV screen

Quick and Seamless Adaptability

The ONYX Flexible-arm easily connects to any VGA monitor or NTSC TV, transforming it into a powerful and flexible video magnifier. With its easy-to-use RF remote control, there is no need to touch the camera once you have it aimed correctly, providing you with freedom of movement and a perfectly balanced image. 

Goes Wherever You Need It to Be

The adjustable locking clamp fits easily on a desk or table’s edge and requires very little surface space. Move it quickly from one work station to another or from room to room.

 

Powerful Vision Management

Turn your PC into a vision and image management tool that enables you to work with magnified camera images and a magnified PC view at the same time. The ONYX® Flexible-arm PC Edition produces exactingly clear magnified images in three distinct modes: distance, document, and self-view.

The powerful ONYX camera is uniquely mounted on an omni-directional articulating arm that can move horizontally, vertically, and laterally, with a total reach of up to 32 inches. This enables users to adjust the camera in a wide array of positions to accommodate any need or viewing situation. The camera produces magnification up to 75x on a 15-inch PC screen.

The Flexible-arm PC Edition captures multiple snapshot views — whether near-at-hand or from across a large auditorium. You can work with these images on your PC in full screen or split window view without the need for constant camera adjustments.
