Display Photos in Style with Sony's New Digital Photo Frames

    S-Frame(TM) Brand Features an Elegant Design, Internal Memory and HDMI

    TORONTO, Feb. 7 /CNW/ - Sony of Canada Ltd. has unveiled its S-Frame
brand of digital photo frames, offering vibrant LCD screens and stylish
designs suitable for the living room, bedroom or office.
    The new 9" DPF-V900, 7" DPF-V700 and 7" DPF-D70 digital photo frame
models have WVGA resolution (800 x 480 pixels) along with 15:9 aspect-ratio
screens to showcase your digital pictures with detail and clarity. Inside the
black bezels of these thin frames is an advanced image processor that scales
and displays images up to 48 megapixels, making the frames capable of handling
photos taken with the most advanced digital cameras.
    "Digital photo frames are a natural addition to our line of digital
imaging products," said Michelle Seemann, Product Manager for Digital Imaging
Peripherals at Sony of Canada Ltd. "Our new S-Frame brand of digital photo
frames takes inspiration from the style and features of our Cyber-shot cameras
and BRAVIA LCD televisions. They give consumers a beautiful way to showcase
their memories."
    The new frames offer convenient features such as 10 slide show
variations, clock calendar views, and two index modes so you can preview
several photos at once. You can also conserve energy by using the auto power
on/off setting to program when you want the frame to turn on in the morning
and off at night. Functions of the digital photo frame can be managed remotely
using the included controller.
    The 7-inch DPF-V700 and 9-inch DPF-V900 digital photo frames have 512MB
of internal storage, while the 7-inch DPF-D70 model has 256MB of internal
flash memory. In order to maximize internal memory, the models all offer an
auto-resizing option that downsizes photos so you can store hundreds within
the device and then return your memory card back to the camera.
    Digital images can be loaded onto the internal memory of the digital
photo frames from several types of flash memory cards, including Memory Stick
PRO(TM), Memory Stick PRO Duo(TM), SD Memory Card, MMC, Compact Flash,
Microdrive(R) and xD-Picture Card. Photos can also be transferred to the
frames via the USB cable from a personal computer or digital camera.
    Now you can share and view your photos on the big-screen, in Full HD. The
DPF-V900 and DPF-V700 digital photo frames feature an HDMI output, allowing
them to be connected directly to compatible HDTV sets via an HDMI cable, sold
separately. Both models are also Bluetooth(R)-enabled. Using a Bluetooth
adaptor, sold separately, the frames can import images wirelessly from a
Bluetooth-device such as a mobile phone.
    All three S-Frame models support JPEG and RAW (SRF, SR2, ARW) image file
formats. The DPF-V900 and DPF-V700 frames also support TIFF and BMP file
formats. These two models also feature Sony's Bionz(TM) processor with face
detection technology for faster processing speeds, as well as in-frame photo
correction like focus enhancement, red-eye corrections and exposure
    The DPF-V900, DPF-V700 and DPF-D70 digital photo frames will be available
for $279.99, $229.99 and $169.99, respectively. All three will be available in
March and can be purchased online at www.sonystyle.ca or the Sony Store.
