Kodak Enhances Digital Picture Frame Portfolio, Adding a New Dimension to the Photo Sharing Experience



    Latest Additions to Family of Frames Boast New Quick Touch Border and a
    Range of Features for Simple Sharing of Pictures and Videos.

    TORONTO, March 28 /CNW/ - Kodak Canada announced an enhanced Digital
Picture Frame portfolio that will bring consumers a more personalized and
intuitive picture viewing experience. Available in 10-inch and 8-inch
multimedia, and 7-inch standard photo versions, these sleek and stylish frames
host a suite of features including the newly announced Quick Touch Border, as
well as accessories for enhancing your home.

    
    -   Control of the frame has never been easier with Quick Touch Border
        that allows for simple operation with a touch or slide of your
        finger, while leaving the screen fingerprint and smudge-free.

    -   Transferring pictures from your PC to your KODAK EASYSHARE Digital
        Picture Frame is even more effortless with the new KODAK EASYSHARE
        Digital Display Software. In addition to organizing and editing your
        pictures, this software makes it easy to move your favourite pictures
        and slideshows from a computer directly onto the frame.

    -   Kodak's Digital Picture Frames display images in HD format (16:9
        aspect ratio). The screens are colour tuned to Kodak's standards and
        use KODAK Colour Science for vibrant colours and pleasing skin
        tones - displaying pictures in brilliant colour and crisp detail.
    

    "Kodak's acclaimed and industry-leading Digital Picture Frames let
consumers bring their favourite memories to life, releasing them from a
computer and displaying them in brilliant quality in the home or office," said
John Blake, general manager Digital Capture and Devices, Vice President,
Eastman Kodak Company. "With the addition of Quick Touch Border, Kodak has
made the consumer experience even more intuitive and engaging."
    To customize the frame to match your home's décor, two decorative mattes
are included, in Cranberry Red and Silver colours. In addition, optional KODAK
Digital Frame Faceplates are available in Mahogany with a gold matte, Silver
with a blue matte, Black Shadowbox with a champagne matte, and Espresso
Shadowbox with a black matte. Easy to change, the faceplates snap onto the
frame and update the look to suit your own personal style.
