Expand Photo Sharing Beyond Your Own Walls

The PhotoVu was designed with one idea in mind...the enjoyment of ALL your photos regardless of where they are located. Several years ago, we started by displaying photos using the local network or a USB Storage Drive. Next, we were the first to add integration with leading photo management software programs like Apple® iPhoto™ and Google™ Picasa™.

Today, you can access photos on the Internet and tap into a wide variety of content using your digital picture frame. This includes public photos as well as postings from your friends and family. We've always known the Internet was the final destination for the PhotoVu. Once you setup your PhotoVu RSS Feeds, everything is automatic so just sit back and enjoy!

What is RSS?

RSS Icon

RSS is an acronym for Really Simple Syndication and is commonly used in the news gathering world. You might already use a RSS News Reader today or the one integrated into your web browser. Typically, when you see the icon on a web site, it means you can access public information (or photos!) by subscribing to it.

What is unique is the PhotoVu's special set of technologies that allow you to easily and automatically access content on the industry's leading photo sharing portals. Now you can enjoy all of your photos...even the ones that friends, family, and others post on the Internet!

Internet Sharing Features:

  • Direct support of Apple® MobileMe Gallery, flickr, Frame Channel, Google™ Picasa™ Web Albums, Photobucket, SmugMug™, Webshots, and Windows Live™ FrameIt.
  • Compatible with most RSS feeds that support the RSS Media or Enclosure tag. Or, you can also develop and use your own RSS feed!
  • PhotoVu SmartSync™ Support synchronizes with your online photos. If photos are added or deleted within an album, the changes will be reflected the next time the RSS feeds are updated.
  • Set times to play your digital frame feeds using the scheduling feature.
  • Automatic Image Sizing using PhotoVu SmartResize™ to optimize each photo for full screen display.
  • Real-time View allows you to see new photos right after the RSS Feeds are updated. This feature is unique to PhotoVu digital frames!

Customer Testimonial

PhotoVu Digital Picture Frame Owner

“I received my new PhotoVu as a Christmas present last year and it has been a wonderful addition to my home. I just love it. I am a serious “picture taker” and have over 10,000 pictures on my computer; which I can now enjoy in a way that I never could before. I have the random setting so it is such a treat when a picture shows up that I have forgotten about. The absolute greatest thing about it is being able to easily make new albums. Last summer my granddaughter came for a visit for her 13th birthday. I made an album of 100 pictures that had her in every picture. She was thrilled that for three days the frame showed only pictures that had her in them. What teenager would not like that! We both enjoyed watching that album. Before she left that album had a lot more pictures. Her parents have a PhotoVu and it’s not that way at their house. I have an album for birthdays, grandchildren, one for special events and one for family reunions. Everyone that sees it is impressed with the resolution and the beautiful colors. I have even scanned some very old pictures of my parents and grandparents. My Photovu brings back many wonderful memories....both recent and long ago.”
