Get the live image from the camera on a full screen of an Ipad

Hi,

I am legaly blind and considering to use a Sony camera to help me to read what is writen on whiteboards.

 

I know than I can pair some Sony cameras with Playmemories on Ipad.

 

 

I wonder if it's possible to see on the full screen of the Ipad, a live picture of what is in front of the camera.

=> if yes, does the quality of the live picture streamed to the ipad is HD ?

 

The idea would be to set the camera on my desk. To opticaly zoom so that it fit on the whiteboard.

Then I am thinking to use the magnification included ipad to see in detail what is written on the whiteboard.

 

Thank you in adsvance for your answers and helps.

 

/Anthony

Hi Anthony,

you can see the video stream with the "PlayMemories-Mobile" App.

The quality of the stream is also decent.

I wonder though - are you sure the Sony Action Cam is the right camera for this application?

The latest model (FDR X3000 or HDR AS300) has digital zoom, which gives you a good result since the sensor has a high quality, yet I think a different camera might suit your needs more.

Then again - I am not aware of other Sony cameras which stream video via WiFi.

Hi,

Were you able to find an answer to this? I teach students who are blind and would like to use this for them to see the board as well. I bought the camera but cannot get full screen.

Thank you!

Hi,

sorry, I didn't found a real properly solution.

But the way I do is the following.

I bought a camera sony QX30 (smal and stream by wifi)

I use the optical zoom (until 30times) to set a properly magnification of the white bord.

Then I take a picture each time i need to read and the picture is an Ok quality.

This app on iOS (sadly not on Android) could be the solution you are looking for: https://www.adamwilt.com/fieldmonitor/index.html
