Wireless family photos
Technology licensing deal leads to virtual, networked family album
An ongoing licensing and technology collaboration has led to the launch of Samsung’s 8" Digital Photo Frame (SPF-83V), a wireless device that can upload images from personal PC photo collections or from services such as Windows Live Spaces.
The product, which is one of the fruits of the Microsoft/Samsung collaboration, represents the new wave of networked products beginning to hit the market.
The frame can also communicate with Windows Media Player and open standard services such as RSS.
Commenting on the launch, Christopher Franey, vice president of Commercial Sales and Marketing at Samsung Electronics America , said: "Our latest digital photo frames, based on cutting-edge technology from the Microsoft Research labs, are easy to use and are one of the few offerings in the marketplace that offer a 'network' approach to digital photo sharing. This is a great example of our ongoing collaboration with Microsoft, and we are confident that the resulting product will be received extremely well."
