In todays world, everyone has a video capable
smartphone in their pocket. Statistics suggest that
people capture one video for every 20-25 photos they
take. Taking and sharing videos is even more prevalent
in parents with infants and young children.
Given the popularity of video, every digital frame
needs to be able to display videos out of the box.
PhotoSpring was the first company to offer a video
frame. When we set out to design our digital photo
frames, we felt that a good video solution was
necessary to creating the best digital photo frame on
the market. That's when the video frame was born.
The following is a guide to how we thought about
videos on PhotoSpring Digital Photo Frames. Most of
the requirements we had are beneficial not only to
video frames but also digital picture frames i
PhotoSpring's Must-Haves for Digital Video Frames
Here are six must-have video related features all digital
photo frames should have:
Free Video Playback
Video is very expensive to upload, process and
store. So it's not a surprise that some digital
frame vendors charge a monthly or annual fee just
to be able to display videos.
At PhotoSpring, we feel strongly that videos
are a core feature so we make it free.
Most frame vendors, in an effort to decrease
costs, limit the video length to a few seconds or
degrade the resolution of the video on the frame.
PhotoSpring can play long videos at HD
resolution so your video always look
Video Can Quickly Eat Up Storage
PhotoSpring engineers designed a system that
balances video resolution with storage space.
Videos are compacted to the smallest possible file
size while preserving the optimal viewing
Bottom line - more high quality videos stored
on your frame.
Multiple Device Support
You probably have videos stored on your phone,
tablet, emails, computer, USB drives and even
Google Photos. Wherever your videos are stored,
PhotoSpring can get them to your frame.
Video Playback Control and Sound
PhotoSpring lets you control the video just like a
VCR....Did we say VCR? We meant YouTube! Turn up
the volume on a video. Pause, review or fast
forward. Play a video in a loop.

the early 90s. We started there and support them
