MagniLink Zip Premium HD 720p, 13” Monitor

MagniLink Zip

MagniLink Zip HD 13 is a neat, portable model with a low-vision adapted 13.3” monitor and an HD reading/distance camera. It’s very easy to fold and unfold the system and to carry it between different locations. A battery with up to 5 h operation time is available as an accessory, for maximized freedom and convenient use. Operation time depends on the light intensity chosen for the screen and lamp.

MagniLink Zip HD 13 is an ideal choice for users who often need to transport their system. It is also suitable for users that want a sleek system at home that can be folded and put away easily when it’s not in use.

The 13.3-inch monitor has brightly colored screen edges, an anti-glare surface, provides crystal-clear sharpness, high contrast images, and a dimmer mode for light-sensitive users. The screen can be adjusted by tilting it forward, backward, and for height and produces images in Hi-Definition (720p).  This is the most portable model with a low-vision adapted to screen and a Hi-Definition reading/distance camera that rotates both vertically and horizontally.

To ensure easy portability, the X/Y table has been excluded thereby making the video magnifier effortless to carry to different locations, as well as easy to fold and unfold.  Its weight is less than 9 pounds and a protective, soft-shelled, zippered carrying case is included.

For convenience, a battery with a running time of 5 to 9 hours is included. The amount of run time depends on the light intensity chosen for the screen and lamp.

The MagniLink Zip Premium HD 13 desktop video magnifier is an ideal choice for users who need to transport a magnifying system on a regular basis to school or work.  It’s also suitable for users that want a sleek system at home – one that can be folded down and put away easily when not in use.

Frequently Asked Questions: 

1. Why would someone want to connect the MagniLink Zip to Chromebook/PC/Mac? What is the primary benefit?

Maybe you received the MagniLink Zip in 3rd grade and in 5th you are starting to use Chromebooks, no problem MagniLink Zip will perform just like the MLS when connected. Of course, it needs a connection board and software licenses.

2. What happens to the MagniLink Zip display if I was to connect to a Chromebook/PC/Mac?  Will I have 2 displays, one on the MagniLink Zip and the other on their Chromebook/PC/Mac?

I can hook my zip to my laptop and perform OCR, distance, take video, and then go back to the MagniLink Zip and use it as a stand-alone product. When connected the monitor on the zip goes dark and that is the same if you hook it to a large monitor/TV.

The connection board, the battery, and integrated XY are all accessories that must be added at the time of purchase. The only thing you can add to a zip is the removable XY table.

Another nice thing is if you have a connection board 2 years later you can purchase the software licenses needed to do magnification and OCR.
