Freedom Scientific Announces New RUBY 7 HD Handheld Video Magnifier

(St. Petersburg, Florida - March 23, 2016)

Freedom Scientific today announced a new addition to its popular RUBY® handheld video magnifier line, the RUBY 7 HD. The new magnifier has a larger screen, high-definition image, and enhanced functionality to meet the needs of today’s low vision consumers.

The RUBY 7 HD displays a magnified image on its 7-inch screen so more text can be displayed at one time, making reading easier. Weighing in at just 18 ounces, this ultra-portable device can go anywhere with ease. Use the built-in tilt stand to read books, magazines, and mail. The unique PivotCam™ camera offers a wide range of viewing modes for spotting, reading, writing, working on hobbies, distance viewing, and even a mirror-image self-view. The RUBY 7 HD combines convenience and flexibility as the leader in the next generation of handheld video magnifiers.

“The RUBY 7 HD extends the functionality of the popular RUBY XL HD,” said Brad Davis, Freedom Scientific's Vice President of Hardware. “It has more of everything people love about our video magnifiers, including a bigger screen and higher magnification, while still weighing only 18 ounces. We've added the ability to zoom in on a still image and pan around for even higher magnification. The full-size HDMI port makes it easy to connect to your TV for an even larger view.”

The RUBY 7 HD will be available at the end of April. For more information including specifications, visit or contact Freedom Scientific at 800-444-4443 or 727-803-8000.
