"Image Moments 6" with Highest Pixel Density Available on the Market
Next Generation LED Backlight Technology
Image Moments 6 (Model IMT-063) displays photos on its 5.7-inch (640x480) digital LCD screen with the highest pixel density available on the market for superior image clarity and detail as compared to similarly-sized digital frames. The frame also features the next generation LCD with LED backlight technology, which provides deeper color pallet reproduction over CCFL, and is environmentally friendly with a mercury-free, lower power design. Image Moments 6 is a smaller, lower-cost version of the Image Moments digital frame with a contemporary design, perfect for compact places, like a bedside table or office desk. With its brushed chrome facade and polished chrome highlights, Image Moments 6 matches perfectly with any living room or office décor.

Advanced Playback Options
All Image Moments digital frames feature a “Photo Slideshow Mode,” which automatically displays your photos with options for random photo play, transition effects, and slideshow intervals. Image Moments lets you search your memory card contents easily in the “Folder View Mode” and browse through photos in “Photo Thumbnail View.” Videos or photo slideshows can be played back with MP3 music to personalize your experience. Sophisticated file management features are also available, including copy, rename, delete files, sort files by name or date, and create new folders. You can also create, edit, and sequence multiple playlists on Image Moments and select specific playlists to playback.

Automatically Rotates Portrait & Landscape Photos for Correct Display
In Image Moments, portrait and landscape photos are automatically rotated to display correctly according to the orientation of the Image Moment through the built-in auto-rotate orientation sensor. In addition, Image Moments also reads image EXIF data, to determine the correct photo orientation. Other great new features include an automatic on/off timer, which can be set to activate or turn off according to your schedule.

256MB Internal Memory for 1,500 Photos! -- Supports All Memory Card Formats
Image Moments is now equipped with 256MB of internal memory, so it can store as many as 1,500 photos. Photos can be copied directly into the internal memory from a memory card you place in the frame’s SD card slot, completely eliminating the need for a computer. For additional memory, photos can be viewed from all popular memory cards - CompactFlash, MicroDrive, SD/HC card, MMC, Memory Stick, MS PRO, xD-Picture Card, and even MS Duo/MS PRO Duo, directly without the need of an adapter.
