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

The 8" VFP858 digital smart frame combines a full touchscreen with innovative imaging technology and Bluetooth®-enabled mobile phone features. Using the built-in microphone and stereo speakers, consumers can connect their mobile phone to the VFP858 for hands-free dialing with crystal clear reception, in addition to phone book syncing, caller ID and call history details. Furthermore, the frame automatically switches between content and incoming call modes for ultimate convenience.

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. Of course, the VFP858 wouldn't be a multimedia enhanced digital frame though without 802.11n connectivity to Flickr®, Picasa®, YouTube®, Internet radio, FrameChannel®, RSS news and weather. For added media options, the VFP858 also includes a USB port and supports most memory card formats for photo, audio and video file playback. The VFP858 will be available in Q3 2010 for an estimated MSRP of $199.99.
