      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.

              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?
