The Compact 8 features brand new, proprietary technology that enhances the contrast of similar colors and provides a sharp, more defined image.  This feature not only produces vivid images but also helps make undetectable text visible again.

Live Panning

With the Compact 8, you can easily zoom in and out and swipe to pan in all directions without needing to move the device.  The live panning feature expands your field of view for a more comfortable, simplified reading experience.

Built-in Reading Stand

The ergonomically-designed built-in reading stand is ideally positioned at a comfortable reading and viewing angle to promote healthy posture.  Simply fold out the stand and begin reading.

Distance Viewing

The Optelec Compact 8 can be used for up-close reading as well as viewing objects and text at a short distance.  For example, you can use the device to check a bus schedule or see the posted menu at your favorite café.  Read distant text in live-view, or snap a photo with the device to magnify and pan your captured image.
