Samsung Electronics America has licensed technology developed by Microsoft Research for an 8" digital photo frame, the SPF-83V, which it will launch in time for the Christmas season.
The device allows users to display photos wirelessly in their home and show photos from sharing sites such as Windows Live Spaces or from personal collections on home PCs.
The frame works with the Windows Live Photo Gallery and allows users to organise and upload individual photos or albums from their PC to Windows Live Spaces and the photos are ready for display on the frame.
The Samsung frame also communicates with Windows Media Player and open standards such as RSS. The product is a result of a long-standing collaboration between Microsoft and Samsung Electronics, including a patent cross-licensing agreement signed by the two companies in April.
Christopher Franey, vice president of Commercial Sales and Marketing at Samsung Electronics America, Information Technology Division, said that the new digital photo frames are one of the few offerings in the marketplace that offer a 'network' approach to digital photo sharing.
