Digital Picture Frames

The right frame for any requirement

HOW DO I FIND THE RIGHT DIGITAL PICTURE FRAME?

Which digital picture frame is best for showing photos from my holiday? Which is more commonly used for advertising purposes? And which frames allow you to do much more than just look at pictures? Choosing one isn’t easy, but with our helpful guide, you’ll be sure to find the right digital picture frame.

KEY CRITERIA AT A GLANCE

DISPLAY SIZE

Whether you want to use your digital picture frame for holiday and family photos in your office, or set it up as a moving painting in your living room, the display size plays an important role. The display size is almost always specified in inches, but we’ve included the size in centimetres so you can get a better idea of the display. Our digital picture frames are available in the following sizes:

  • 7 inches, 17.78 cm
  • 8 inches, 20.32 cm
  • 10 inches, 26.64 cm
  • 12.1 inches, 30.73 cm
  • 13.3 inches, 33.80 cm
  • 15.6 inches, 39.60 cm
  • 17.3 inches, 43.94 cm
  • 18.5 inches, 47 cm

RESOLUTION (IN PIXELS

Let’s stick with the moving painting: if the size is 15.6 inches or more, the resolution should be particularly high. As a rule of thumb, the larger the display, the higher the resolution should be – this is the only way to view your pictures with perfect quality. The resolution is specified in pixels. For example, a digital picture frame with 10 inches offers a sharp HD resolution at 1024 x 768 pixels.

FORMAT

You can’t go wrong with a 4:3 format, because this is the exact format digital cameras take pictures in – so there are no ugly edges when they appear in the digital picture frame. Do you just want to show pictures, or also videos with background music? If you want to include videos and music, pay close attention to the media formats the digital picture frame can play. There are image formats (JPG, BMP), video formats (AVI) and audio formats (MP3, MP4).

CONTRAST & BRIGHTNESS

The contrast and brightness play a key role in displaying sharp, detailed photos. The contrast value refers to the brightness ratio between the black and white pixels. The minimum value you need is 300:1. The higher the value is, the better and more detailed the contrast will be. Hama’s digital picture frames feature impressive contrast values between 350:1 and 1000:1.

DATA TRANSFER & STORAGE

Of course, the more pictures you want to enjoy in your digital picture frame, the more storage space needs to be available. Some devices have an internal memory. The advantage is that you don’t have to buy an additional memory device such as a memory card or USB stick. Ideally, the internal memory should offer at least 1 GB. Naturally, more storage space is better, for example the Hama frames with 2 and 4 GB. However, if you want to display a really large number of images and videos, a frame with an internal memory will soon reach its limits. That’s why most digital picture frames also come with a memory card slot and a USB port. This way, you can connect other storage devices with your best photos at any time, without having to transfer data using your PC or notebook.

DESIGN

Like their analogue counterparts, digital picture frames should fit perfectly into the look of your home, or be a stylish, decorative eye-catcher. Frames with a slimline look go with any interior design concept, while the versions made of brushed steel or with a piano finish are accessories that are guaranteed to catch everyone’s attention.

WALL MOUNTING

On the wall, a digital picture frame seems like a painting. However, if you are mounting it on a wall bracket, it’s very important that you pay attention to the VESA standard. This number is specified on the device or in the packaging, e.g. VESA 75 x 75 mm – meaning that the spacing between holes in the wall bracket must also be 75 x 75 mm. Very convenient: for wall-mounted frames, make sure a remote control is included for easier operation. If the digital picture frame doesn’t have a VESA standard, you can’t mount it in combination with a wall bracket.

FEATURES & FUNCTIONS

If you expect much more from your digital picture frame than just pictures, videos and music, you’ll love the wide variety of additional functions: calendar, clock, rechargeable battery and/or battery support, weather station. This way, you have far fewer objects cluttering up your desk and dresser, and you can see everything that’s important at a glance.

PREMIUM – DIGITAL PICTURE FRAMES FOR PHOTOS, MUSIC AND VIDEOS

  • If photos in the digital picture frame aren’t enough for you, the Premium category has even more to offer. The slideshow is much more interesting if a video is included – add the right music in MP3 format and the excitement knows no bounds.
  • Those who want really good sound to go with their photos or videos can also connect the digital picture frame to their hi-fi systems. Creatively combining music, pictures and videos produces a very special emotional experience.
  • Some of the models have an integrated HDMI™ interface. With the included high-quality adapter cable, you can connect other devices with HDMI™ connections, e.g. Blu-ray players, DVD players or SAT receivers. This is especially convenient if the family is using all the TVs in the house and you want to watch your favourite film in peace or work on a business presentation.
  • Thanks to the calendar and clock function, you’ll always be up to date. The integrated alarm offers a great wake-up call. You can add your own pictures for both functions. This way, you can get up with your eyes on your favourite photos for a good start to the day.

The digital picture frames in the Premium category are little media players equipped with practical functions that eliminate the need for many other devices.
