Lex Air's Features

Easy to set up

LexCam unfolds in just one simple step.

Lex Air is designed to be as fast and simple to set up and pack away as possible. Just lift the camera head up until it stops and plug in the integrated USB cable into your computer. To pack away, just do the same in reverse! It takes just 5 seconds.

Integrated right angled USB cable

In order to make Lex Air as fast to set up and pack away as possible, it ships with an integrated right angled USB cable which is safe to be left plugged in to Lex Air at all times. This means you only need to connect one end to your computer when you wish to use it.


Capture documents at up to 20 pages per minute. Advanced motion detection algorithms in Lex's software ensure a clear image is captured every time.


Lex Air's high resolution camera allows text down to 6pt in size to be accurately captured and recognised. This is extremely small text which is 25 to 30 percent smaller than newspaper print.

Depth of field

Lex Air has a very large depth of field (over 8cms). This means that even the thickest of books can be accurately captured, right into the spines. This is key difference when comparing it to a flatbed scanner where books often have to have their spines destroyed in order for them to be flat enough to be accurately scanned.


Lex Air's advanced camera allows extremely thick books to be photographed and read accurately, without the need to flatten them, damaging their spines.

What's more, due to the advanced Lex software, even round objects such as tins of food can be read aloud.

You can use Lex Air for reading:

  • Text books
  • Novels
  • Letters and post
  • Bank statements
  • Magazines
  • Newspapers
  • Tins of food
  • Product packaging
  • Product instructions
  • Recipes
  • Much more!

Size, Weight and Portability

Lex Air has a footprint of just 6.5 cm x 6.2 cm, meaning it can be placed onto even the smallest and most cramped of desk surfaces with ease.

Lex Air is also very lightweight, at just 500 grams, (1.1 lbs). It fits easily into most 15" laptop carry bags so you can take it with you anywhere you go.
