Hong Kong — Digital photo frame developer Pix-Star introduced Monday a line of photo frames with the ability to receive short video clips as well as still shots via email.
Pix-Star said the video clip sending feature is now standard on its latest 10.4- ($149.99 street retail) and 15-inch ($209.99) frames, both of which are available now on Amazon.
Pix-Star photo frames include built-in Wi-Fi connectivity, enabling users to easily send pictures and video clips to a Pix-Star photo frame via a smartphone or connected tablet from virtually any location.
The frames offer high-quality screens with rich colors and energy efficient LED backlighting.
Pix-Star is promoting the frames as an ideal gift for grandparents or loved ones separated by long distances. The frames also offer a host of additional features including use as web radios, alarms and reminders, “games for the brain,” and the ability to connect to 20 online photo albums and storage services, including Instagram, Flickr, Facebook, Dropbox, and others.
Pix-Star provides free, automatic software updates to the frames, along with responsive, 24/7 e-mail support, the company said.
