The frame also includes a calendar, analog clock and alarm functions.
They combo system includes a graphical user interface that is said to be easy to navigate and use.
The CD358LD include 512MB of internal storage which can be expanded with optional SD, MMC and MS memory cards. It will store up to 2GB of JPEG, AVI and MP3 files.
The lamp portion of the system uses 18 mini LEDs to provide soft, bright, flicker-free illumination with an operating life of over 30,000 hours and 5 watts of energy consumption. Brightness intensity can be adjusted with a dial control. It also includes a gooseneck stand to position the light where it is needed.
