PhotoVu updates software
PhotoVu has unveiled its newest digital picture frame software with a significant increase in the ability to display high resolution digital camera images, including those taken with Canon's new 21.1-megapixel EOS-1Ds Mark III. Digital picture frames serve as standalone devices that produce digital photographs on a high-resolution LCD set within a set frame. Users can display still photographs that occasionally change in sequence, and the digital frames often include a hard drive for storing massive amounts of digital pictures. PhotoVu's software update includes 160GB hard drive support for standalone play as well as automatic rotation of images for those cameras that support orientation sensor and image EXIF tagging.
The latest release also offers numerous new features and enhancements that are only found in PhotoVu digital picture frames, according to the company. PhotoVu digital picture frames are available in 22-inch (from $1,300), 19-inch (widescreen priced from $1,100 as well as standard priced from $1,000), and 17-inch (from $900) sizes.
