Key features of CoaSt with Readit Lite (Windows, iPad and Mac OS)

Discreet: Smallest, most compact and stylish distance camera system available

Transportable: The lightest optical zoom camera available weighing just 350g (including integrated USB-C cable)

Zoom: Fast, powerful 10x optical zoom (< 3 seconds from minimum to maximum)

Distance: Enables a low vision user to see further than someone with 20:20 vision, meaning they can sit anywhere, next to anyone they like, knowing they will be able to see the whole presentation

Total Magnification: Powerful 8x digital zoom yields 80x total magnification 

Clarity: Double full HD resolution for superb clarity at 30 fps

Digital Panning: No need to move the camera head: Point and zoom it to the area of interest then digitally zoom in and move around on screen with mouse, touch screen or arrow keys. Makes reading significantly faster and more comfortable

Real time video deskew: A unique game-changing feature freeing low vision users from the centre of the room. It allows them to sit at practically any angle to the target and have it straightened as if they were sat directly in the centre of it

Height: Despite an inconspicuous height of just 17cm to the centre of the camera lens at its lowest height, CoaSt is easily extended to 39.5cm (15.6 inches) providing the best vantage point for a clear line of sight to the target

Dual setup: Integrated magnetic fold-out tripod legs enable CoaSt to be set up on any flat surface with excellent stability within seconds. Alternatively, attach the included CoaSt Table Clamp to any desk up to 60mm (2.4 inches) thick, to securely position it even in environments where it could be accidentally knocked. An added benefit is the maximum height to the centre of the camera lens increases to 47cm (18.5 inches) from 39.5cm (15.6 inches) making it even easier to avoid objects or people in the user’s line of sight

High Speed Movement: Full HD resolution at super smooth 60 fps for viewing high speed action

Low light enhancement: See better than the human eye in low light situations

Focus: Fully automatic focus

Manual Focus: Manual focus (via camera buttons) allows the focus to be manually adjusted e.g. when looking inside an object or preventing the board temporarily losing focus when someone walks in front of it

Image Saving: Instantly save images from the camera to view later

Freeze Frame:  Instantly freeze what’s on screen - handy if a slide is about to advance but all the information required hasn’t been noted down

Mirror Mode: Perfect for doing hair / makeup / shaving etc. 

No battery required: No need to worry about charging a separate battery or it wearing out over time

Power efficient: The CoaSt camera itself uses just 1 watt of power, so there’s no need to worry about it flattening laptop or tablet batteries too quickly* (*power usage of Readit Lite and Readit software depends on platform and enabled features but typically uses more power than the CoaSt camera itself)

Rugged: Designed to be set up and packed away multiple times a day. The CoaSt itself is incredibly tough with an integrated lens cover and the stylish zip-up case keeps everything safe during transport

Compatible: Works on any platform as a webcam including: Windows, Mac, iPad, Android, Chromebook and Linux. No special software is required. For advanced features, Readit Lite and Readit are available on Windows, iPad and Mac. Android and Chromebook coming soon! The Readit Lite App is available on the App Store for iPads. Please follow the link to download it for free or type 'Readit Lite' into the search on your iPad App Store.
