About the Optelec Compact 8

The Compact 8 stands out for its impressive image quality, with a large 8-inch screen that displays more text and objects for maximum overview. Thanks to the exclusive Dynamic Contrast™ feature, even illegible text becomes clearly visible through enhanced contrast between similar colours. The Live Image Panning function lets you easily zoom in and pan the live view without moving the device. Moreover, the built-in reading stand offers comfortable reading at an optimal viewing angle, and the Remote View function lets you view objects and texts up close using an additional camera.
