PhotoVu LLC on Wednesday launched its
PV1740, a new 17-inch wireless digital picture frame designed to serve as a less-expensive alternative to its larger PV1940 product. The PV1740 is available for US$899.
Equipped with a custom frame and mat made to order, the PV1740 appears on the wall like a framed photo or piece of artwork, but it cycles through digital photograph or imagery it reads over a wireless network that are stored on your Mac or PC’s hard drive. It works with any Mac, Linux, Windows or Unix-based computer, and can be configured using a standard Web browser. The PV1740 is also compatible with Adobe Photoshop Album 2.0 and Apple’s iPhoto software. If you’d prefer for the system to work as a standalone digital picture frame, a 40GB removable hard drive is also an option.
