A "breakthrough" digital photo frame with audio and video capabilities is among the new products being debuted by Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS) at Computex 2006 - click here for our in-depth show coverage.
The V70 Digital Photo Frame - pricing and availability unknown - is said to be able to play music (MP3, WMA and AAC) to accompany photo slide shows, transform from portrait to landscape modes for optimised viewing and double as a video player for files in MPEG-1/2/4, WMV, XVID and DivX formats.
A 7in screen is built in and described by ECS as being bright and sharp. Also built in is a memory-card reader (spec not given) for transferring collections of high-resolution photos from a PC or camera. Onboard storage capacity, socketry, screen res and other particulars have still be revealed.
The V70 and other new ECS products are on show throughout Computex (June 6 – 9) at the ECS booth, New York New York, 7F, Hall B.
Probably hard to tell from the little that ECS has so far unveiled whether or not the V70 will turn out to be interesting. Nonetheless, we're expecting you to comment, as always, in the HEXUS.community.
Update - June 8, 10:30
