MagniLink ChromeViewer can display image simultaneously from multiple connected MagniLink camera systems. The camera images can be displayed simultaneously on the screen, e.g. image from the MagniLink AIR distance camera and a document camera. For example, this can be very practical for a student in the classroom who wants to be able to see (using the distance camera) what the teacher is doing in front of the board and at the same time see (using the document camera) an enlarged image from the school book.
If you are using our motorized cameras from our latest product family MagniLink AIR, you can control the cameras directly from the software via icons, via the keyboard or by dragging the mouse pointer over the camera image. You can also save up to three different camera positions, which would be helpful for a student who quickly needs to switch between different camera positions. Then the student can easily go, with just a push of a button, from seeing the teacher at the board to another saved camera position (such as looking at the door when someone enters the classroom).
The TTS option makes it possible to OCR text from a picture taken with the connected MagniLink camera and have it read aloud. This gives a more relaxed reading, increased reading speed as well as reading endurance. The OCR processed text can be displayed in several different picture view modes synchronized with the speech and it is possible to enlarge and navigate in the OCR-picture. ChromeViewer 4.1 has a new Text-to-Speech (TTS) engine with support for up to 25 languages and also improved OCR processing.
Even if it´s not brand new, we also want to emphasize the very useful notepad tool in ChromeViewer that provides possibility to draw, write, enlarge and pan in the image. You can easily choose to navigate between different images, and there are several different functions for inserting text, drawing, and writing with a pen or highlighter in different colors and sizes. You can also save and open images. The notepad tool is excellent for marking on worksheets or filling in forms and exams that can then easily be saved or forwarded.
MagniLink ChromeViewer version 4.1 is a free update for those who already use MagniLink ChromeViewer version 4.0 and is automatically updated for these users. New users will find the software in the Chrome Web Store where it can be downloaded.
