Digital Foci has dressed up a portable multimedia player with a soft leader case and a built-in battery, as a contemporary digital portfolio art book, and readied to showcase at the upcoming PMA 2009. Dubbed “PBK-080 “, the Photo Book features a 8-inch 4:3 SVGA LCD, built-in speakers and a large 4GB built-in memory, along with a host of multimedia card readers to support music, video and digital still image playbacks.
Digital Foci’s app allows easy media transfers from PC, MAC, USB or connected flash drive to the Photo book’s internal memory, or one can simply use the player to access the media files directly via an attached external USB device. Images captured or formatted in JPEG, TIFF, BMP, GIF to camera RAWs (see supported models below), along with EXIF data, are viewable on the screen, and it supports photo slideshows with zoom, pan and rotate functions. A built-in rechargeable battery is included, and can last up to two and a half hour of continued use.
