Digital Photo Frames Poised for Year-round Growth

Since “Digital Photo Frames” began to populate American homes during Holiday Season 2006, statistics and retail sales have proven that, up until today, the Digital Photo Frame category has been a “seasonal” product mainly for “gifting”; Valentines Day, Mother’s Day, Back To School & Holidays.

As online social-networks have spurred new-found love and demand for sharing photos with family and friends, we are uploading more photos to the internet than ever before in our history. While family and friends have always turned to “photos” to relive our fondest memories, we are now taking pictures in ways never before done. Today, we update our Twitter feeds and Facebook feeds with new photos of the “moment”. We share what we are doing “today” rather than the way our parents only “snapped” special occasions (pull that photo out of the box of you with your birthday hat on playing pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey:-).

Due to our new social-behavior we have more content being created by us and shared with us and we want to be able to enjoy all of the content in a more social and cozy environment than on the cold computer monitor.

Media Street has developed a new social-media-sharing platform that allows everyone to enjoy all of the content they have online including but not limited to: Facebook photos, Flickr, Picasa, Photobucket, Youtube and also their Twitter feeds and Facebook news & status updates. You can also stream any and all of your favorite content from any of your sources including People magazine, Parenting magazine, ESPN, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, TMZ, Mashable, etc, etc.

With the development of this next-level social-sharing platform called “LifeGoRound”, all WiFi (internet connected) Digital Photo Frames, will finally become a year-round sought-after consumer electronic.

The world’s first LifeGoRound-enabled frame is the eMotion Social-Connect Digital Photo Frame. The eMotion Social-Connect was demonstrated by the COO of Facebook at a high-tech conference in Silicon Valley and hailed as a “new and clever way to enjoy your Facebook photos.”

For more information and to set your company up to distribute the ‘eMotion Social-Connect”, please email (sales @ mediastreetgroup.com) or call us (888-633-4295, ext 14).

Michael Levy interviewed by The New York Times in Print & in Video

Posted by MediaStreetBloggr on 31st January 2010

Michael Levy, whose firm makes digital frames, said that after the financial crisis, his traditional bank refused to finance a big order he received.

When the Banks Don’t Lend

With banks timid about lending, small businesses, such as Media Street, have turned to unconventional lenders like Hartsko Financial Services, which provides high interest short-term loans to small and midsize companies.

Coverage begins on the front page of todays Business Section, Sunday, January 31st, 2010.

There is also a Video of the segment:

CrunchGear Review: eMotion Social-Connect Digital Photo Frame plus a giveaway

Posted by MediaStreetBloggr on 19th November 2009

“I set this frame up in a few minutes and was browsing my media a minute or so after that. I was able to feed a collection of almost all of my Facebook images to the frame immediately and, most important, I didn’t have to show my mom how to use it. This is, friends, high praise for a picture frame.”
