HONG KONG, April 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Pix-Star, the company that first made it possible to send photos and short video clips directly to digital photo frames via email, has done it again: The award-winning Pix-Star photo frame (https://www.pix-star.com/) can now receive audio messages sent from the Android, iPad, and iPhone Pix-star app.
With the addition of audio receiving capability, Pix-Star becomes the only frame on the market that can receive all multimedia files--photos, video, audio--from email or the Pix-Star app.
It's a distinction that makes Pix-Star the frame of choice for those who want to bridge the technology gap with older loved ones. Want to give Grandma the grandkids' latest school pictures? Email them to her Pix-Star frame. Would Grandpa enjoy seeing his grandson's first baseball game? Surprise him by sending the video right to his frame. Milestone anniversary coming up? Send them a fun audio clip of the whole family wishing them a happy anniversary.
"The possibilities are endless," explained Herve Robin, CEO of Pix-Star parent company Spheris Digital Ltd. "In designing Pix-Star frames, we really wanted to create something that would facilitate family connections across the miles and generations. Being able to send audio clips right to a loved one's frame lets them share in life's milestones and shortens the distance between family members."
Available in 10.4- or 15-inch sizes, Pix-Star Wi-Fi frames are cloud-connected, enabling them to access photos on Facebook, Picasa, Flickr, Smugmug, Google Plus, OneDrive, Dropbox, and other cloud-based applications. Photo, video and audio files can be emailed directly to the frame, or sent from a smart phone with the Pix-Star app. Users can even set their photos to music by streaming Internet radio to the Pix-Star frame. The 10.4-inch frame can store up to 20,000 photos; the 15-inch frame can store up to 15,000.
Because Pix-Star is dedicated to ensuring customer satisfaction for the life of its frames, audio and video receiving capabilities are available not just on brand-new Pix-Star frames, but also on all Pix-Star frames sold after November 1, 2014.
"We want Pix-Star to be an extension of the family, to help fill the spaces in between visits with the people our customers hold dear," said Robin. "In order to do that, we focus on providing the highest quality product and customer service. We are constantly introducing new features to the Pix-Star frame, and we don't charge anything extra for the email service or Cloud storage, which is unlimited, as well as on the upgraded features on frames purchased after November 1, 2014. It's just the right way to do business."
In the U.S., Pix-Star frames are available on Amazon, Frys.com, Sears.com, Hermanstreet.com, and directly from Pix-Star.com. Canada, Ireland, the U.K., Spain and France, Pix-Star frames can be purchased on Amazon or from Pix-Star.com.
