Challenge

Sight Enhancement Systems’ SceneEye 500 is a highly-specialized camera that helps people with low vision participate more fully in everyday activities. The SceneEye 500 enables them to perform tasks that normally would require full vision, such as reading a book, watching a presentation, or reading the blackboard at school.

Before going to market with SceneEye, SES needed to develop a web-based application that would allow users to view the camera images in a web browser running on a tablet or laptop.

Solution

SceneEye web application

Sight Enhancement Systems selected NetFore to build a web application that allows users to operate the SceneEye camera to view objects close up and at a distance, depending on their needs.

After conducting an in-depth analysis of the requirements, the NetFore team defined the application architecture and completed the detailed design in close consultation with Sight Enhancement Systems.

The resulting application, which was designed, built and tested by NetFore, makes it simple for users to view the image produced by the camera in real-time. It also gives them the ability to fine tune various settings such as contrast and magnification level to optimize the image to meet their individual needs.
