ViewSonic(R) Digital Photo Frames Display Plug and Play Personality at CES

New Digital Photo Frames Offer Full Multimedia Connectivity With Music and Video Play Back

LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwire) -- 01/07/10 -- 2010 International CES, MGM Signature Suites -- ViewSonic® Corp., a leading global provider of visual display, computing and digital content solutions, today added seven new multimedia enhanced digital photo frames in a range of sizes that bring plug and play ease and style to any environment.

"Consumers want to enjoy and share memories with friends and family. However, as digital frame technology has grown more advanced, some people have become intimidated by these devices," said Jeff Volpe, vice president and general manager of ViewSonic Americas. "ViewSonic's new frames provide the leading multimedia connectivity that consumers want, with an intuitive design ideal for any age or technology background."

ViewSonic VFP858 - Connected Bluetooth® smart frame

In addition to making phone calls without a service subscription, users can directly stream audio / music wirelessly from their computer, phone or other Bluetooth A2DP device to the VFP858.
