The P-1000 has a Compact Flash slot (other media supported via adapters) and TV out as well as connectivity to Epson Printers for direct print. But the features keep coming, the P-1000 can also be connected directly to a computer via USB for transfer or a USB CD writer for archival. This product has been available in Europe for some time.
The Epson P-1000 Photo Viewer is the Ultimate Digital Camera Companion
New Portable Photo Viewing and Storage Device Boasts Beautiful 3.8'' LCD Panel Designed by a World Leader in LCD Technology
LONG BEACH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 5, 2004 -- Digital photographers will welcome the arrival of the EPSON P-1000, a new device for viewing, storing and sharing photos that incorporates a high quality Epson 3.8" LCD screen for the best image quality. Digital photography is evolving and changing as are many photographers' needs. Epson is helping to address these changing needs with the EPSON P-1000 photo viewer. This device gives photographers the ability to view details of their images with an LCD screen that sets it apart from any other product of its kind. Epson is a leading producer of LCD modules and has incorporated this technology expertise into devices such as AV projectors, digital cameras, cellular telephones and Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs). With Epson's introduction of the first LCD digital quartz watch over 30 years ago, to recently becoming the world leader in cellular telephone LCD displays, the EPSON P-1000 is a logical extension of this long heritage of LCD technology.
In addition to its high-resolution screen, the sleek and sophisticated looking EPSON P-1000 has a 10 GB hard drive and can print directly to select Epson printers. This convenient product enables photographers to simply take their CompactFlash memory card out of their digital camera, pop it into the EPSON P-1000 and download and print the images with ease.
"The Epson P-1000 is a breakthrough product for Epson that sets the bar extremely high for other portable devices of its kind," said Daniel Oey, senior product manager, digital input products, Epson. "The screen resolution is simply amazing and allows photographers to see the details of their images clearly and easily without having to download them and view them on a computer screen. Whether shooting for work or play, this is a convenient viewing and storage solution for a variety of people."
Viewing and Sharing Photos on the Epson P-1000
Epson is continuing to build on its reputation for incredible image quality with the Epson P-1000 and its 3.8" VGA Epson LCD screen. This portable product displays every detail of downloaded images with vibrancy and clarity, unlike the viewing panels on most digital cameras and other viewers, which provide a smaller and less clear visual of what the photo actually looks like. The difference is that the EPSON P-1000 display offers three colors per individual pixel and a higher density of 212 pixels per inch (PPI), compared with one color per pixel and 100 PPI on a typical digital camera display. This gives the EPSON P-1000 the ability to display an impressive 262,144 colors and a remarkable, high resolution image.
To make viewing photos even more convenient, with the EPSON P-1000 the user can zoom in and rotate images to inspect them closely. Users can even play back the images as a slideshow for viewing and sharing quickly and easily. If the user wants to share images on an even bigger screen, the photo viewer has a video interface--NTSC or PAL--that can connect directly to a television, monitor or projector with video input.
Storing and Preserving Photos with the EPSON P-1000
The EPSON P-1000 is equipped with a 10 GB hard disk drive for storing thousands of images at a time, including images as large as 6 megapixels and it supports both JPEG (Exif 2.1 and 2.2) and raw file formats for select SLR cameras. With this large amount of storage, the customer can copy photos to the EPSON P-1000 from the memory card and clear the memory card immediately to begin taking more pictures. When all of the images have been downloaded to the photo viewer from the memory card, the viewer can then be connected to a computer or even to an external USB CD-R/RW drive to back up the images to ensure they are saved.
With its built-in memory card slot, the EPSON P-1000 is compatible with most digital camera memory types. It offers native support for CompactFlash Type I and II, and IBM Microdrive(TM) and can support Memory Stick(R), Smart Media(TM), Secure Digital and Multi Media Card with an optional third-party adapter (sold separately).
Printing from the EPSON P-1000
The EPSON P-1000 wouldn't be a complete photographer's tool without the ability to print directly to an Epson printer. This versatile product offers the capability to print directly to several Epson printers including the EPSON Stylus Photo 820, Stylus Photo 900, Stylus Photo 1280 and Stylus Photo 2200. The EPSON P-1000 also supports PRINT Image Matching II and Exif 2.2 (Exif Print) for achieving the best looking prints possible.
When connected to a Windows or Macintosh computer, the EPSON P-1000
acts as an external, portable USB hard disk drive.
The device is lightweight and easy to travel with and comes with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery and AC adapter.
The EPSON P-1000 also ships standard with a carrying case for added protection and a product stand for either viewing slideshows with others or simply just keeping the unit securely in place.
Pricing and Availability
The EPSON P-1000s will be available by early January through distribution, mail order and on the Epson retail Web site (www.epsonstore.com) for a price of $599. The product carries a one-year warranty and is supported by the EPSON Connection(SM), a customer support and technical assistance line.
