Press Release: KODAK PULSE Digital Frame Keeps Pictures Fresh, and Family and Friends Closer
Rochester, NY, January 7, 2010 – Eastman Kodak Company today announced its new KODAK PULSE Digital Frame. This touchscreen-enabled frame is equipped with Wi-Fi connectivity and a personal e-mail address so consumers can easily send pictures wirelessly to the frame from a computer, from Facebook and KODAK Gallery sites, or from any device that has email capability. The KODAK PULSE Frame redefines the element of surprise, giving consumers a constant stream of new pictures to enjoy, celebrate and relive.
“Kodak believes sharing pictures should be simple, not a chore,” said John Blake, General Manager, Digital Capture and Devices and Vice President, Kodak. “Picture this: you live on the east coast. Your parents live on the west coast. You just had a baby, so you give your parents a PULSE Frame to ensure that they can share in every moment of your child’s life. You can send pictures by email from your smartphone or even through Facebook or KODAK Gallery. With the PULSE Frame, you always have something to look forward to as the frame refreshes with new pictures.”
With an e-mail-enabled device, including home computers and mobile phones, people can send their newest pictures directly to the PULSE Frame. Kodak further enhances the sharing experience by connecting the frame to photo albums on Facebook and KODAK Gallery sites. The frame automatically refreshes when consumers, or their family and friends, add new pictures to their albums.
“Now, picture this: Remember your high school prom picture? The one with the big hair? Well, your best friend just uploaded it to her Facebook photo album and now it’s on your own PULSE Frame!,” added Blake.
