Optron PCT video magnifier

The OPTRON PCT video magnifier is state of the art technology in a new and innovative design. Whether it is used at a desk or to see the surroundings – the PCT’s superior color camera displays images with an outstanding quality.

The PCT takes up a minimum of space and integrates itself perfectly into a desktop work area. It’s always there, and yet not in the way.

Adjusting the PCT to the user’s individual needs is fast and easy. It offers 6 different monochrome colors, reversed polarity and a variety of other functions for optimized reading comfort.

Turning the camera on the sturdy swivel arm displays the surroundings on the monitor. Blackboards, overhead projectors, flipcharts - the PCT’s infinitely variable zoom and its autofocus produce an excellent image quality in the desired size. With OPTRON’s TwistCam™-technology the camera can be rotated to almost any angle – the picture on the display is always perfectly upright and leveled.

Many Display Options

It can be used with a television or with a computer monitor. It can also be connected to a computer or to a laptop. Different models and various accessories help to find the best match of options for each user’s individual preferences.


The PCT makes traveling easy. It is stored in a sturdy, hard plastic carrying case and weighs 8 pounds (without carrying case and accessories).

  • The PCT Tray slides smoothly and accurately. It can be stopped vertically or both vertically and horizontally.
  • The System Extension raises the camera without sacrificing stability. It also increases the reading angle and therefore depicts a larger area on the desk.
  • The Dual Monitor Stand provides space for two screens for a maximum of enlarged information.
  • The PCT’s Split Screen technology displays both the computer and the camera picture on the same screen.
  • For use in a school or at a university a Second Camera can be attached to see both the blackboard and the desktop on the screen at the same time.
