Westinghouse Digital Expands into New LCD Display Market with Digital Photo Frames
Westinghouse Digital Electronics is entering the digital photography marketplace with the introduction of its Digital Photo Frame. The 5.6-inch LCD display is easily customizable to match any home or office decor by attaching the included interchangeable mahogany, black or brushed aluminum frames.

The frame allows users to create a slideshow or view individual digital snapshots by simply plugging in a digital camera memory card or downloading images from the computer's hard drive via a USB port.

"Digital cameras are transforming the way consumers take pictures, but their cherished memories still remain locked and often lost on computer hard drives or flash memory cards," said Douglas Woo, president of Westinghouse Digital. "Digital photos are best shared electronically and this frame provides an affordable display solution for sharing favorite digital photos with family, friends and co-workers."

The Westinghouse comes with 8MB of internal flash memory for storing images and is also compatible with CF I/II, MS, XD, SD, and MMC flash memory cards.

Using the control keypad on top of the frame, consumers can advance pictures one at a time, or view the On Screen Display (OSD) by pressing the "menu" button. OSD options include a thumbnail mode, which allows users to preview all photos stored on the card and in the internal memory to select a specific photo for display, rotating images from horizontal to vertical, and choosing the speed of the slideshow, as well as selecting slideshow transition effects between images, which includes "wipe down," "checkerboard," and "dissolve."

The LCD measures 5.6-inch (diagonal), with a native resolution of 320x234 pixel. The Westinghouse Digital Photo Frame has an estimated retail price of US$149.99.
