Pix-Star Frames Can Now Receive Audio Files

Pix-Star, the company that made it possible to send photos and short video clips directly to digital photo frames via email, has made it possible for the frames to receive audio messages sent from the Android, iPad, and iPhone Pix-star app.

With the addition of audio receiving capability, Pix-Star can receive all multimedia files—photos, video, audio—from email or the Pix-Star app.

"The possibilities are endless," explained Herve Robin, CEO of Pix-Star parent company Spheris Digital, in a statement. "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.

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.

In the U.S., Pix-Star frames are available on Amazon, Frys.com, Sears.com, Hermanstreet.com, and directly from Pix-Star.com. In Canada, Ireland, the U.K., Spain, and France, Pix-Star frames can be purchased on Amazon or from Pix-Star.com.
