Sony Electronics Singapore has launched their new digital photo frames which claim to support full high definition video playback. Available in 7- to 10-inch models, the digital photo frames support video formats including AVCHD, MPEG4, Motion-JPEG, and MPEG-1, and come with 2GB internal memory.
The new S-Frame HD series digital photo frames offer users the ease of viewing high resolution photos and videos. Ranging from 7 to 10.1-inches in frame size. The new flagship 10.1-inch DPF-HD1000, 8-inch DPF-HD800, and 7-inch DPF-HD700 claim to deliver full high definition (HD) video playback in video formats such as AVCHD , MPEG4, Motion-JPEG, and MPEG-1. Users can enjoy full HD 1920 x 1080/50p videos captured on all compatible Sony camcorders and cameras, such as the 2011 range of Handycam and Bloggie camcorders, Alpha digital SLR cameras, as well as Cyber-shot digital still cameras.
The HD series comes with a 2GB internal memory that holds up to 4,000 images, music playback during videos and photo slideshows, and a smart orientation sensor detects and display images in the right orientation. Each frame features a mini-USB port and two memory card slots that are compatible with Memory Stick Duo, SD, SDHC and SDXC media cards, while the supplied remote control provides easy navigation of photos and movies. The DPF-HD700 is available in black, red or white.
The new 8-inch DPF-C800 and 7-inch DPF-C700 allow users to easily navigate and view photos with its intuitively simple user interface and basic button operation. Four graphical icons let users quickly access key functions on the digital photo frame – Slideshow, Clock & Calendar, Index and Settings. Both also come with a USB connector and two card slots like the DPF-HD700. For the fashionhistas, the special edition DPF-C700/BI is made with SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS which adds gorgeous sparkle to the frame’s dark exterior for a more stylish, personalised frame.
All S-Frame HD and C series models come with several eco-friendly features, such as LED backlight technology that uses less power to display images than typical CCFL technology without any compromise on photo quality and vibrant colour display. An auto on/off timer also allows users to set the S-Frame to turn off automatically when it is not in use after an extended period of time. The new S-Frame DPF-HD1000, DPF-HD800, DPF-HD700, DPF-C800, DPF-C700 and DPF-C700/BI made with SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS will be available in Asia Pacific from September 2011.
