"We expect all sorts of people will take advantage of this new photo storage device to rescue treasured memories buried in their computers and on memory cards, and bring them to life with its built-in slideshow feature," said Jim Leahey, general manager of peripherals and enhancements at Sony Electronics. "It finally gives high-resolution still pictures the visual realism usually reserved for motion-pictures."
Sony HDPS-L1 - Photo slide show styles
The Sony L1 hard drive photo storage unit eliminates the effort required to organize printed photos, as it automatically sorts picture files by their creation date. It also provides the option to group images by type, such as travels and holidays. About half the size of a typical DVD player, the device is easily incorporated into a home theatre system with standard audio and video cables that connect to a television. A wireless remote control helps "surf" through years of photos by theme or date, select slide show styles, and adjust the volume for background music.
