The 10" DPF-XR100 and DPF-VR100 models offer HD video playback capabilities, allowing consumers to view detailed, realistic video with vivid colors and contrast directly on the units' high-resolution WSVGA LED backlight LCD screen.
The 8" DPF-D830 model is Sony's first battery operated digital photo frame, allowing for easy portability in the home. The DPF-D830 also features SD video playback capability.
"Our new digital photo frames offer consumers a variety of options for enjoying their favorite photos and videos in any room of the house or at the office," said Michelle Seemann, product manager for digital imaging peripherals at Sony of Canada Ltd. "These frames give consumers an easy and fun way to enjoy their photos and videos, with amazing quality and clarity."
The high-end 10" XR100 and VR100 offer SD and HD video (AVCHD™) playback via media card, allowing you to conveniently enjoy your favorite HD videos along with your photos. The 10.2-inch (diagonal) high-resolution WSVGA LED backlight LCD screen provides detailed video and life-like images with vibrant colors. An advanced image processor inside the frames makes these frames capable of handling footage taken with even the most advanced digital cameras or HD camcorders.
The frames also feature stereo audio, a convenient alarm mode and Sweep Panorama™ playback, helping you easily view and showcase those beautiful panoramic photos taken by Sony Cyber-shot® cameras.
Sony's exclusive TruBlack™ technology improves how your content looks on the XR100 by reducing reflection and enhancing contrast to ensure more natural tones.
The D830 is Sony's first digital photo frame powered by a built-in rechargeable battery (up to 100 minutes, based on photos only), so the frame can be passed around when you have family or friends over.
With 2GB of internal memory, each of these three frames can store thousands of images. Maximizing internal space, the models offer auto-resizing that downsizes photos so you can store them within the device and return your memory card back to your camera. Additionally, they're equipped with three preloaded music tracks, but allow users to copy their own MP3 files to the internal memory.
Feature-Packed Frames for Every Budget
Sony has also announced eight additional S-Frame models (models 7" DPF-A710, 7" DPF-D720, 7" DPF-D720BU, 7" DPF-D720BQ, 8" DPF-D820, 8" DPP-F800, 10" DPF-D1010, 10" DPF-D1020) to its line of digital photo frames today, offering a range of options for consumers on any budget. The frames vary by screen size and internal memory, and range in price from about $80 to $240.
Models DPF-D720, DPF-D720BU, DPF-D720BQ, DPF-D820, DPF-D1020 are also compatible with Motion JPEG (AVI and MOV) files and MP3 files.
Model DPP-F800 is an 8" frame featuring a built-in high quality dye-sublimation 4"x6" photo printer.
All the frames introduced today offer convenient features such as slide show variations, an auto orientation sensor to detect if your frame has been placed horizontally or vertically, clock and calendar views, and index modes so you can preview several photos at once. You can also conserve energy by using the auto power on/off setting to program when you want the frame to turn on in the morning and off at night. Functions of the digital photo frame can be managed using the included remote controller.
Digital images can be loaded onto the internal memory of the digital photo frames from several types of media cards, including Memory Stick PRO™, Memory Stick PRO Duo™, SD and SDHC Memory Card, and MMC. Photos can also be transferred to the frames from a computer via a USB cable (optional). All models support JPEG and RAW (thumbnail preview) image file formats.
