Today Sony announced the new Sony HD Series S-Frame Digital Photo Frames, which allow consumers to display their favorite memories with innovative, high-quality features, including Full HD video (1920x1080/60p*) playback.

With 2GB of internal memory, each of these three frames can store thousands of images.

Additionally, the internal memory can store up to 40 songs allowing you to enjoy background music while viewing photos or watching slideshows. Supported audio formats are mp3, AAC, and Linear PCM.

Digital images can be loaded onto the frames’ internal memory from a USB thumb drive or several types of media cards, including SD, SDHC, SDXC Memory Card and Memory Stick PRO Duo™. All models support JPEG and Alpha’s RAW (thumbnail preview) image file formats.
