Kodak put themselves in the picture - Kodak have released a family of digital photo frames boasting Kodak Colour Science, Wi-Fi functionality, built in stereo speakers and 128Mb of internal memory for simple sharing of pictures and videos.
At the 2007 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Kodak announced four new Kodak Easyshare digital picture frames that play vibrant slideshows of your favourite pictures and videos set to music. Available in 10 and 8 inch Wi-Fi and 8 and 7in standard versions, these frames boast true plug-and-play ease of use and a full menu of versatile features with an intuitive, multifunction remote control. Optional interchangeable faceplates let you match your décor and show off your style.
“Why frame one picture and hide the rest in your computer? Now there is an easy and exciting way to display all of your favourite digital pictures and videos,” said Julian Baust, Country General Manager, Eastman Kodak Company. “You can enjoy your pictures and videos accompanied by your favourite music right out of the box because Kodak has made it so simple.”
The frames are colour tuned to Kodak standards and use Kodak Colour Science for vibrant colours and pleasing skin tones - displaying pictures in brilliant colour and crisp detail. Set up is a snap, and you can enjoy any JPEG picture, most video types (MPEG 1 and 4, MOV, AVI) and MP3 music using all the popular memory card formats (CF, SD, MMC, xD and MS). You can also source digital files from any digital still camera, home PC, Jump Drive and Flash Drive via USB 2.0. Stereo speakers are built into the frames for dramatic sound accompaniment to your slide shows.
A handy remote control gives you easy access to all the functionality of the frame - choose the location of your pictures, customise your slideshow, even select pictures and videos to copy, delete, rotate, zoom and print. For those with a wireless home network (Wi-Fi 802.11b/g), you can wirelessly view pictures from your home PC or connect to Kodak Gallery to display your online picture albums right on the frame.
To customise the frame to your décor, optional frame faceplates are available in frosted floral glass, warm walnut wood, whiteboard (write on and wipe off) and antique silver. Easy to change, the faceplates snap onto the frame and update the look to suit your own personal style.
The digital picture frames are available in four versions. Feature by feature specifications and pricing include:
