PRESS RELEASE: Samsung Introduces 700Z Digital Photo Frame With Award-Winning Sleek Design And Slim Display
New multimedia display device is recognized at Consumer Electronics Show for innovative design and dual performance capabilities
Las Vegas, January 6, 2009 – Samsung Electronics America, Inc. today introduced the Samsung 700Z Digital Photo Frame, its slimmest frame yet for displaying high quality images. The photo frame, a recipient of a Consumer Electronics Show 2010 Innovation Award, expands Samsung’s role as a leader in digital technology design and function.
“The 700Z is a representation of Samsung’s goal to offer design and performance simultaneously,” said Young Bae, director Display Marketing, Samsung Information Technology Division. “In addition to its sleek aesthetics for photo display, this frame also serves as a monitor for small desk spaces and home offices.”
Combining Design and Functionality
Crafted for home and office use, the frame’s foldable “L” stand design and ultra slim active matrix (AM) OLED panel makes the Samsung 700Z a multi-purpose device. . The device uses DLNA licensed technology to sync with other home and/or mobile photo and video devices making sharing content easy. In addition to its high-quality display and decorative frame function, the 9x6.6x4.6 inch Samsung 700Z can also be used as a secondary home or office monitor by simply connecting it to a PC through a USB cable. The 700Z is ideal for consumers looking to add secondary monitor and high-quality family photos into a tight office space, using one device.
The quality of the Samsung 700Z design is matched by its excellent performance. It has an eco-sensitive AMOLED screen rather than a backlight which makes it not only thin, but also very energy efficient. The screen minimizes the user’s power consumption and simultaneously creates cost savings.
High Quality Images in all Environments
The AMOLED self-luminescent screen delivers bright, high contrast images at a 1024x600 resolution both in dark and bright atmospheres. It also has a wide viewing angle which ensures the picture quality even from 180 degree angles. The AMOLED also has a 0.01mS response time that gives the Samsung 700Z the ability to deliver moving images such as movies or television programs as well.
Bluetooth connectivity features allows Samsung 700Z users to share multimedia content across devices wirelessly, including uploading mobile photos and sharing pictures across multiple 700Z frames.
The Samsung 700Z has a suggested retail price of $300 and will be available in stores March 2010.
The Samsung 700Z and more new display products from Samsung will be on display at Central Hall Booth #11026 during the International Consumer Electronics Show at the Las Vegas Convention Center, January 7 – 10, 2010.
