      Hi Caroline, I use a CCTV, but I do not remember the brand of it. I advice you to find a low vision center, see what kind of CCTV s there are and try them out

        Hi Caroline,

        I use a CCTV, but I do not remember the brand of it.
        I advice you to find a low vision center, see what kind of CCTV's there
        are and try them out yourself.

          Hello Caroline,

          I have had a CCTV at home and one at work for years. I would be hesitent
          to recommend either brand as I don't know if the quality is stil the same.
          I can, however, suggest some features you will want to consider. Both my
          CCTVs are black & white only. Color adds more to the price and I have not
          found that I missed having the option of color. One feature I did not get
          and wish I had is a guide line. When moving across the page, I often lose
          my place when going back to the left to read the next line. As I recall,
          there was a feature that simply had a line or two visible on the screen so
          you could line up your document. Hopefully you have a place nearby where
          you can try different CCTVs in person. If not, some dealers will actually
          bring one out to your house.
          Good luck.

            Hi: I currently have a "Rainbow Alladian". It is full color, black and
            white; white and black; blue background, yellow print; and a few others. I really
            like it a lot. At work I had one exactly the same but black/white;
            white/black with guidelines. The guidelines were great for reading numeric tables and
            other work related stuff; however, for simple reading, I found the guide to be
            annoying--I could find my place based on "context of what was being read".
            My CCTV at home is about 12 years old; so not sure what the current quality is.
            If I had to buy a new one, I would probably go with the "Merlin". . .The
            Distributors will come to your house and show you all the products . . .just call
            them. Hope this helps. Catherine

              Hi Caroline

              I use a Smartview 3000 from Humanware (formerly Pulse Data). It is
              monochrome with output for a computer monitor. Works very well. I acquired
              this C.C.T.V second hand a few months ago when my 18 year old Telesensory
              Chroma failed and was not repairable.
              Before buying this unit I looked at the current models of Smartview from
              Humanware and Clearview from Quantum Technology. These current models have
              auto-focus which is a very useful feature but they also use an electronic
              control for zooming which is slow to respond. I much prefer the mechanical
              zoom control.

              The monitor you intend to use with the C.C.T.V. is an important
              consideration. If you have a computer you might prefer to use that monitor
              than have two monitors. Make sure the unit has a computer output if you
              intend to use the computer monitor.

              Hope this helps.

              Russ

                Hello,
                I recieved my first cctv in 1999, to which I still use today.However, its a
                black/white
                Optelec.. I too what a newer model.It is very differcult to read large books
                on it.
                Can someone tell me which ones are colored and automatic with a bigger
                platform on it?
                I have a person coming from the Linc Program,so I need a starting point in
                which to direct him/her
                towards the right cctv of myself.My cctv is extremely top heavy therefore,I
                never move it around.
                Is their a flatscreen cctv?
