Inspired by Sharp Vision: The Full HD Desktop Video Magnifier “Eagle”
This paper describes Eagle. Eagle marks the beginning of a new video desktop magnifier generation. Equipped with a high-definition camera, it offers a resolution up to 1920×1200 pixels supporting the 16:10 aspect ratio by default. We show how Eagle fulfils well-known requirements of desktop magnifiers combining state-of-the-art technologies. We also emphasise in which way users benefit from this novel development.
