Nixvue is introducing two new Digital Album II storage devices
Nixvue Systems, located in Singapore, had a small booth in Hall 11 of the Photokina 2002 show in Germany. They introduced their two new Digital Album II storage devices to the public. Both devices are almost the same; the only difference between the Nixvue Digital Album II Advantage and the Lite Advantage is that the Lite Advantage seems to have to do it without the composite video out NTSC/PAL. So we will actually introduce the Advantage type of Digital Album II to you.

The Nixvue Digital Album II Advantage has a built-in USB 2.0 interface that allows the user to move their images to and from a computer at a very fast speed. The theoretical transfer rate is 480 Mbps, but you might say that USB 2.0 is up to 40 times faster than the USB 1.1 interface. The Advantage device allows the user to display their images directly on a TV screen or LCD projection system. It is also possible to zoom and pan around the image. Whether it's a Copy or a Verify function that has to be performed, the backlit LCD panel keeps the user informed of all the actions.
It gives the user some visual knowledge that the data is correctly copied over and verified. Both of the Nixvue storage devices have a built-in operating system that is easy-to-use. The OS allow the user to view the whole directory structure. There are no external batteries needed to let the Digital Album do its job. The built-in battery pack is a Lithium-Ion type of battery and is, when fully charged, capable of transferring approx. 30 transfer of 64MB data. Furthermore there is no need to connect something like a cradle to it when you want to use the interfaces, cause they are all built-in. The composite video out, external DC input and USB 2.0 interface are all in the product itself.
Nixvue Digital Album II
Both of the Nixvue storage devices will be available in 10, 20, 30 or 40GB capacities and will support Windows 98, 98SE, ME, 2000, XP and Macintosh 9.1 and above and Linux. With the newer OS such as 2000, XP and Mac OS 9.1 and higher the Digital Album II is automatically detected and installed without the need of any drivers.
