Sony has released a series of new digital photo frames featuring AVCHD video playback with stereo sound, integrated color printer and free engraving service with online orders.
All models (except E710 which comes with exchangeable panels) feature a distinctive illuminated Sony logo on the panel bezel: the logo disappears automatically when frame is positioned vertically in portrait position. There’s also a smart orientation sensor that ‘flips’ images for correct viewing whether the frame is in portrait or landscape position. There’s also an energy-saving timer that cuts power consumption when the frame isn’t being used, plus a remote for handy playback control from wherever you’re sitting.
XR100 and VR100 models boast a generously-sized 26cm (10.2 inches) panel for a big, beautiful view of your photos and videos with exquisite detailing and colors. The flagship XR100 adds TruBlack technology for even richer, high-contrast images with practically no reflection. It’s also distinguished by an extra-wide viewing angle (160 x 160 degrees) so everyone can enjoy the show, anywhere in the room.
In a first by Sony, the S-Frame XR100 and VR100 can show your camcorder, camera, and DSLR AVCHD clips with clear, rich stereo sound. Enjoy your video’s soundtrack or a choice of pre-installed background music tracks. Alternatively, enhance the mood of videos and slideshows by transferring your favorite music tracks to the frame’s internal memory.
The new Sony S-Frame range of digital photo frames is available from October 2010.
