Compact 6HD – A new mid-size portable

Building on their strong tradition of innovation, Optelec have proudly introduced a portable magnifier that can also read text back to you.


The Compact 6 HD is more than just another electronic magnifier. It has amazing screen clarity, and being only 14 mm thin, it is a pocket-sized, touch screen magnifier that you can use wherever you are.



With the Compact 6 HD, you can read magnified text in high contrast colours and view objects from a small distance. Thanks to its large 6-inch screen, you can fit more text on the screen and it is ready to use in seconds.


The Compact 6 HD comes in 2 varieties; one is for magnifying only, and a second has speech output, enabling any text to be scanned and read out to you. Both models have two cameras, customizable touch screen buttons and a reading stand to read more comfortably at a desk or table.



Optelec have also just introduced the Wear accessory*, which lets you clip the Compact 6HD into a head set, turning it into a wearable device, suitable for tasks where you need to use your hands and have magnification at the same time.


The Compact 6 HD joins other portable solutions from Optelec, including the Compact 7HD and the Traveller, which now comes with a reading stand and enables full page magnification.


If you need a portable magnification solution give us a call, and our Low Vision Consultants will help you choose a model that works best for your individual needs.



*Important: The Compact 6 HD Wear is not a mobility aid and should never be used for any mobility or navigation activities, such as driving or walking.
