Image Moments digital photo frame line expanded
Digital Foci, Inc. is set on releasing a trio of customizable Image Moments digital photo frame next month at CES 2008 in Las Vegas, with the main attraction being a 5.7″ model that has been tipped to boast the highest pixel density display currently available on the market. This display is known as the Image Moments 6 screen and boasts VGA (640 x 480) resolution, LED backlighting with pixel density of 140 PPI, complete with a two tone, mirror polished chrome finish. 5.7″ is a pretty strange designation where screen size is concerned, and it certainly doesn’t live up to the 7″ digital photo frames where size is concerned these days. Well, at least the high pixel density makes up for the smaller size, but I think people have gotten used to 7″ being the sweet spot by now.
Other than the aforementioned 5.7″ display, you also get a 15″ XGA (1,024 x 768) resolution display that displays a whopping 16.2 million colors – that’s a whole lot by any standard, and definitely much more than your eyes would care to decipher with a casual glance. The 15″ model is known as the Image Moments 15, so it is a no brainer that the 8″ model has been dubbed as the Image Moments 8. Both the Image Moments 15 and Image Moments 8 feature custom framing options courtesy of the company’s very own Adapter Ring design. The frames themselves also boast an interchangeable mat with three color selections to choose from, a hinged memory card door to prevent the cards from being seen and an easel leg for alternating between landscape and portrait orientation.
You get a contrast ratio of 700:1, 500:1 and 300:1 for the 15″, 8″ and 5.7″ models respectively. Every model boasts 200MB of internal memory along with memory card slots that read CompactFlash, MicroDrive, SD/HC card, MMC, Memory Stick, MS PRO, xD-Picture Card, and MS Duo/MS PRO Duo, and a USB slot for PC connectivity. Image Moments 15, Image Moments 8 and Image Moments 6 will retail for $399, $199 and $149 respectively when available next March.
