An asset for those with visual impairment
MagniLink AIR Duo is a very flexible and adaptable two-camera system that in the best way facilitates the daily school work for students with visual impairment. The system enables split screen in several ways, which provides extra freedom and efficiency.
Always access to both cameras
This ceiling-mounted motorized two-camera system provides extraordinary flexibility. In one and the same system, you have both a separate distance camera and a separate document camera. With assistance from the software, you can simultaneously view images from both cameras if desired.
Maximum desk space
Since no table-mounted document or distance camera is needed, the student gets a maximum of desk space for his or her school work. As the MagniLink AIR Duo is a wireless system, there are no extra cables to keep track of and that take up space from the work surface. Another advantage of the system is that it’s located in the ceiling and thus provides the best possible visibility. The system is perfect for students with a fixed classroom or in other rooms where the possibility of simultaneously viewing pictures from both distance and the desk surface is desired.
Accessories that facilitate
If the system is intended to be used by a student who does not have access to a computer, it is possible to choose a control unit
with pre-installed software instead. The image is then transferred wirelessly from the ceiling-mounted camera to the control unit, which is connected to a separate monitor that shows the image from the camera. A control box is included, but you can also choose to control the software by a keyboard and a computer mouse.

her textbook by using a control unit which
transmits the image from the ceiling-mounted
camera to a connected monitor.
Another useful accessory is the MagniLink AIR Frame grabber
(fits MagniLink AIR Uno/Duo). This wirelessly transmits the image from an external image source, such as a projector or smartboard, to the computer. Additional accessories that are available include OCR / TTS
– a text-to-speech function that makes it possible to OCR-process a text and have it read aloud, as well as an external controller
(hand control) to control the system if you prefer not to control the system directly from the software or computer keyboard.

the image from an external image source, in this case a
projector, to the screen. The person with impaired vision
can see the presentation directly on their own screen and
e.g. enlarge and change the contrast in the displayed image.
At the work place
MagniLink AIR Duo also works well, just like other systems in the MagniLink AIR family, in the workplace. The system creates opportunities for increased participation for employees with visual impairment, especially at meetings and conferences.
