Pandigital digital photo frames do a lot
The new line of photo frames presented by Pandigital offers the user more than other products in this category. PictBridge interface, clock and calendar, alarm clock, programmable on and off, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless connections – not many frames can fall off with such a set of functions.
It is important that the buyer does not have to pay for unclaimed features – for example, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth modules, with which the photo frame can take a picture from a cell phone or PDA, are available as additional purchased accessories. Likewise, as an option, self-contained power supplies are available, allowing the frame to be operated away from the electrical network. The appearance of the accessories matches well with the overall design of the frame.
The presence of the PictBridge interface opens the possibility of printing photos in the memory of the frame on a printer connected to it directly, without the participation of a PC.
Other features of the frames include the function of automatic rotation of the image depending on the orientation of the frame, support for JPEG, Motion JPEG, MPEG 1, MPEG 4 and AVI. It is possible to listen to sound recordings in MP3 format with signal output to the built-in loudspeaker and a headphone jack.
Photo frames are equipped with built-in memory and devices for reading flash memory cards SD, XD, Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro / Memory Stick Duo, Compact Flash, MMC. USB interface is used for connection to camera or PC.
