Epson Logo Epson updates P-series media viewer
(Wednesday, March 15, 2006 - 18:10 EST)

In its second announcement of the day, Epson Japan has unveiled the new Epson Photo Fine Player P-4500, the third in the series following its existing P-2000 and P-4000 models.

The P-4500 retains the same gorgeous 3.8" LCD display with Photo Fine technology as in the past models, but offers a slight restyling, a new backlight that's 1.5 times as bright, support for images as large as 30 megapixels, as well as improved display and transfer speeds (courtesy of a new image processing engine). Other changes include improved video and Raw file format compatibility, and a new software package called "Epson Link 2". Video formats supported include MPEG 1, 2, and 4, as well as DivX and Motion JPEG. Raw files are supported from the following camera models:

The Epson Photo Fine Player P-4500 stores images on an 80GB built-in hard drive, natively accepts both CompactFlash Type-I and Type-II cards including microdrives, as well as Secure Digital / Multimedia Cards, and offers a USB 2.0 High-Speed connection for PC connectivity or direct printing from the viewer. There's also a built-in speaker and headphone jack for listening to audio and movies, a DC In connection for the provided AC adapter, and an NTSC / PAL switcheable video connection to let you view your images on a TV. The device goes on sale in Japan this April, and pricing or plans for sale in other markets aren't currently available.
