New Simple-To-Use GiiNii "All-in-One" 8" True Video Digital Picture Frame

Imagine giving a favorite relative or best friend a personalized holiday present that they love—one that is incredibly easy to use. Now imagine being with family and friends on Christmas morning or at your holiday gathering, and being able to instantly play back digital photos and videos that you just took of those special moments. The gift that makes it possible is GiiNii’s new 8-inch “All-in-One” True Video digital picture frame.

“Digital picture frames have been around for a few years, but now, for the first time, you can plug in a non-HD USB camcorder and play back videos on this gorgeous picture frame,” said Dennis Sones, GiiNii chief marketing officer. “Everything about the GiiNii 8-inch True Video digital picture frame is new, including video capability that enables video playback and a vastly simplified operating system.”

Exceptionally Easy To Use

The GiiNii 8-inch “All-in-One” True Video’s EZ Navigation System features simple controls (an innovative scroll wheel and just two buttons) and intuitive, Flash-animated menu items. Plus, a straightforward photo management system lets users easily create and name albums (preset or custom) via an on-screen keypad without using a computer. These albums let users quickly find and display specific photos.

“Many digital picture frames have been very complicated to set up and run,” said Sones. “GiiNii understands that, so we set out to develop a next-generation digital picture frame that would be easier to use than any other frame on the market.”

The digital picture frame also is true multimedia video capable. With MPEG-4 and AVC/H.264 video playback, it plays virtually every type of video from non-HD digital cameras and camcorders, and it instantly plays videos directly from non-HD Flip Video camcorders via the frame’s USB port.
