I remember a few years ago, the digital photo frame proved to be quite a novelty – after all, this means there is no need to actually print out a photo that you like and frame it up, only to change it from time to time – and after a while, it might even get rather tedious. Having said that, a digital photo frame makes it a snap to have a slew of images shown in a row, since it would read all of the images from a memory card. As to how many photos are shown there, it remains to be seen. Nixplay, a name that is synonymous with high-definition WiFi cloud photo frames, intends to introduce a couple of cloud-based digital frames, namely the nixplay Edge 8” and 13” WiFi Cloud Frames.
Nixplay offers a simple to use web app, allowing customers to access as well as create playlists of their photos straight from their devices as well as a slew of social media platforms that range from the likes of Facebook, Instagram, Dropbox, Flickr and Picasa. Heck there are also additional services that are being planned at the moment. The moment the playlist is created, it will be able to instantly send that particular frame of your choice, or perhaps you can have the creation of different playlists which will then be sent to multiple frames, where they in turn can be connected from any location, providing users with additional control. Not only that, individuals will be able to send their photos straight from smartphones to just about anywhere the frames are located – regardless of the time of the day, and the photos will then appear there and then.
Good thing with all those stories about leaks and hacks of cloud services, privacy and security is a very important aspect, as users will then control their sharing capabilities and privacy preferences via a list of approved contacts who will then be able to send photos to the frame through email or via the Nixplay app, which is available on both iPhone and Android devices.
Some of the key features of these WiFi cloud-connected digital photo frames include a stunning resolution count – the 8” model has 1,024 x 768 pixels, while the 13” delivers Full HD goodness at 1920 x 1080 pixels, with an aspect ratio of 4:3 and 16:9, respectively. The asking price for the 8” Edge Series frame stands at $169.99 a pop, while the 13” Edge Series frame is going for $299.99.
