1. How is AcuityMaster Licensed?
      Each physical location requires a ‘location-license’. Each additional workstation requires its own license. Upgrades are included within 1 year from purchase date.
    2. What windows operating systems are supported?
      Windows 8, 7, Vista and XP
    3. What Are The Hardware Requirements For AcuityMaster?
      Dual Monitor system setup

      • If you already have a computer in the exam lane (for EMR/EHR, for instance), you can leverage this computer run both softwares.
      • Video card with dual Video output, such as this card EVGA 512-P3-1310-LR GeForce 210. This card is very inexpesive and will easly support your needs.
      • We use LCD/LED monitors to display the AcuityMaster program; these are readily available for $150.00 for a 20-24″ monitor with HDMI.
      • If you would like to use the video fixation, you might look for a monitor that has built in speakers, or a 20-24″ 1080P with HDMI. When connected via HDMI this will permit the sound from the video (when activated) to be played from the monitor.
    4. Will AcuityMaster work with any monitor?
      yes, but there is a correlation between the distance between the monitor and the patient that may be a factor in unusual combination of small monitors and short distances permitting display of the 20/400 line.If you are already own a monitor that is 15 or 17” CRT/LCD you should be fine. If you don’t already own a monitor, we would recommend a 20-24” LED/LCD with HDMI or DVI.
    5. What videos/movies can we play
      You can utilize any video clip; you should try to match the video size/proportion to best fit your screen size/proportion.
    6. Can I use a remote control and or Foot Pedal
      Yes, you can use a any standard windows wireless keyboard, wireless numeric pad etc. We also have a USB pedal to toggle the VIDEO function
    7. Is there an all-in-one solution
      Yes, you can purchase an all-in-one computer such as dell 2300 series from the outlet, often for less than $350!You would then mount this system on the wall either

      a.  Directly in front of the patient or
      a.  Behind the patient in conjunction with a mirror in front of the patient.

    8. Standards

      a.  LUMIANANCE 

      The standard for opotypes as specified in ANSI Z80.21-1992 (R2004); standard background luminance needs to be between 80 – 320 Cd/m2.
      Current  monitors produce luminance between 80 – 320 Cd/m2.
      Sample monitor: About $150.00 at Newegg: ASUS VH232H Glossy Black 23″ 5ms Widescreen Full HD 1080p LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 ASCR 20000:1 w/Speakers & HDMI

      b.  CONTRAST

      ANSI (document ISO 8596) states “…dark optotypes on a lighter background and the luminance of the optotype shall be equal to or less than 15% the luminance of the background”.
      Current  monitors produce contrast (both CRT and LCD) that meet this requirement.
      Sample monitor: About $150.00 at Newegg: ASUS VH232H Glossy Black 23″ 5ms Widescreen Full HD 1080p LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 ASCR 20000:1 w/Speakers & HDMI

      c.  COLOR TEMPERATURE

      Color temperature for the optotype background states that the white light of the background of optotypes will be within the range of 2500K and 7000K.
      Current  monitors produce white light in this range.
