Meet the RUBY 10 Video Magnifier–A Versatile, Low Vision Solution for Everyday Living Activities

November 11, 2021

Our RUBY video magnifiers have become some of the most popular low vision products on the market today, and we’re so excited to announce the newest addition: the RUBY 10!

The RUBY 10 video magnifier features a large, 10-inch touchscreen display and three dedicated cameras to help you with your everyday tasks. Use the RUBY to magnify magazines, photos, letters, labels, and other fine print.

A swing-out arm allows you to view items in your hand and write. Enable full-page OCR on the speech model when the arm is extended. With a touch of a button, you can scan pages and have them read aloud to you.

The third camera is dedicated to seeing objects at a short distance, such as signs and menus on a wall.

Join Mike Wood and Michelle Williams on Thursday, November 11 at noon Eastern time as they introduce the RUBY 10 and demonstrate its ease of use and unique viewing modes. For example:

  • ColorSight +™ is a feature that addresses color blindness by shifting specific colors to assist color differentiation in real-time.
  • GlareGuard™ attempts to maximize comfort during long-term use by minimizing pain from light sensitivity. This feature reduces the wavelengths of light associated with such pain.
  • EdgeScribe™ edge enhancement modes attempt to improve object recognition by removing visual clutter.
  • Aptiview™ adjusts the contrast in different parts of the image, which could improve the viewing experience in more lighting conditions than previously possible.

Register for this webinar to learn how the RUBY 10 can help you.

ACVREP credits will be available for those who attend the live webinar.

All attendees over 18 years of age and living in the U.S. will have an opportunity to win a RUBY HD handheld magnifier. One lucky attendee will be selected and notified via email after the webinar.
