D Foci Picture Porter 35
Digital Foci took the opportunity on Friday for the pre-CES launch of a new high-end photo viewer for vacationers and pros. The Picture Porter 35 both doubles the capacity of its full-fledged viewer range to 160GB but also adds a USB host mode that lets users attach an external hard drive to create backups of the viewer's contents without first returning to a PC. It accordingly comes with faster transfer speeds: about 1GB of images can be transferred to the Porter 35 in two minutes.

Digital Foci on Monday unveiled its Image Moments 6 high-resolution digital frame built around a 5.7-inch, 640x480 LCD screen with a 300:1 contrast ratio.

The frame is also unique in that it allows users to display photos and play music or videos at the same time and from multiple sources, be it the internal memory or any one of the seven supported memory cards.

Digital Foci Image Moments
Digital Foci this afternoon previewed several updates to its Image Moments digital photo frames that promise better image quality and features than most displays of their type. The Image Moments 6 (pictured) and 8 are some of the first frames to include an LED backlight in place of the typical cold-cathode fluorescent (CCFL) version. The technology improves color accuracy -- a crucial component of any photo frame -- while also reducing the power draw and eliminating toxic chemicals like mercury, the company says. The range-topping Image Moments 15 also brings a 16.2-million color LCD into the line and achieves a 700:1 contrast ratio while still using CCFL to light its image.
