CEIVA Logic Inc., announced a digital frame and service that allows users to send image from a camera phone directly to its digital frame products.
Accoording to the company, the digital frame is designed to resemble a traditional picture frame, the 5" X 7" LCD screen displays the photos it receives nightly through a phone line. The Digital Photo Receiver does not require a computer, memory cards and cables, or other technology to operate. Just connect the phone cord, plug in the power, push one button and users are ready to receive photos.
Every night the Receiver dials a local phone number to retrieve pictures sent by family and friends. A single Receiver can receive 30 new photos daily and over 10,000 a year. The PicturePlan service enables the Digital Photo Receiver to retrieve and display pictures sent from around the world in addition to providing safe photo album storage, service support, printing options, and a myriad of photo editing, display and sharing preferences.
CEIVA also provides free access to news, local weather forecasts, sports, a daily calendar, horoscopes, and TV listings which can be automatically included in a daily slide show. According to a recent study from InfoTrends Research Group, worldwide camera phone sales will roughly triple that of worldwide digital camera sales, nearly 53 million in 2004 and reaching 82 million units in 2008.
