With the Phoenix Braille Embosser, scan pictures, graphs and charts into a computer and with a few clicks of the mouse, emboss those images in high definition tactile graphics without compromising the quality of your Braille text.
The Phoenix is a ninth generation of Braille embossing technology that combines durable and legendary Romeo Braille Dot with a proprietary 25 DPI tactile graphics embossing system.
The Firebird Software Suite, included with the Phoenix, is a comprehensive set of productivity tools that powers the Phoenix Embosser. The Firebird Software Suite includes the Firebird Transcriber that is a high quality, intuitive Braille translator and the Firebird Graphics Editor that provides you with a comprehensive list of automatic tools to effortlessly create tactile graphic images.
The Phoenix Embosser employs two separate embossing heads. One embossing head produces high quality single sided standard LOC Braille AND Dynamic Braille Scaling (DBS). In addition to producing LOC Braille, DBS will allow you to produce Braille in other formats including Jumbo, Petite, CA sign, and Marburg. One embossing head produces super high resolution Braille graphics up to 25 DPI.
