WiFi, Internet Connected “Easy to Set-up & Easy to Use” Digital Frames, are the next wave…

Posted by MediaStreetBloggr on 11th February 2010

All data is from IDC Research (http://www.idc.com)

eMotionSC_web

IDC Research data shows that House Hold wireless penetration is currently at 45%, and growing dramatically. Digital frame total house hold penetration is 13%, and “wireless” represents less than 5% of total digital frame penetration which translates to plenty of room for growth and opportunity.

The average age of the digital frame purchaser is 38-43.  This age group is technology savvy, and if they purchase a wireless frame as a gift for their parents, knowing their parents limited technology expertise, they will probably deploy a wireless solution to connect the frame. IDC survey shows that ease of use/deployment is what will drive current frame owners to purchase another frame.  The eMotion Social-Connect utilizing the built-in LifeGoRound platform provides them with a compelling solution where they can upload photos and distribute to multiple frames with a click of one button.

Last years Digital Frame sales should be no reflection on future sales growth and opportunity.  2009 was a tough year all around in every category (with the possible exception of Apple products).   With the economy in turmoil, consumer disposable income declined and purchases shifted to focus on necessity rather than items that would be nice to have. As a footnote, one large “Digital Frame brand”  told IDC Research, as one example, that they expect a 5 to 10% growth in orders during 2010. They had a slight growth in 2009, and they are the market leader with 40 to 50% share….

According to IDC data, current 2010 lines ups of 8″ Wifi frames offer street prices between $129 to $149.

Besides its new 8″ eMotion Social-Connect, with a street price at around $140, Media Street will also be announcing a 7″ version that will cost about $20 less.

More Value & Social Rewards for Retailers to Sell WiFi Digital Frames:
When a new user signs up for LifeGoRound (http://LifeGoRound.com), which is a free, stand-alone social sharing platform, they are greeted with a  photo album from founders Norm & Michael Levy that show how fun and easy sharing is.  That album can be replaced by RETAILERS’ social network marketing efforts such as their Facebook pages and Twitter feeds.  From a retailers perspective, the best part about marrying digital photo frames to social media is its inherent, addicting, every day use… Finally, a digital photo frame worthy of sales year-round, not just the last 6 weeks of the year!

Digital Photo Frames Poised for Year-round Growth

Posted by MediaStreetBloggr on 6th February 2010

facebook

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).

If you are a device manufacturer and would like to enable your device to receive content from LifeGoRound, please email bizdev @ mediastreetgroup.com

 Media Street has created a platform called LifeGoRound that serves as a content portal for its eMotion Social Connect digital frame, an 8-inch Wi-Fi-enabled display priced at $149. The LifeGoRound platform enables you to view photos stored at sharing sites like Facebook, Flickr, Picasa, Photobucket, and Walmart.

….I have been using the eMotion frame on my desk, and it’s almost like having a second display for monitoring Facebook, Twitter, and RSS feeds. Media Street has a few kinks to work out, but the LifeGoRound platform and eMotion frame are a fun way to go social and share photos.

All LifeGoRound-enabled Digital Frames also get their own email address so friends and family can send photos direct to the Frame from anywhere in the world.

Sharing photos with friends and family has never been easier or more fun!  LifeGoRound also allows “Groups” to be set up making it seamless and simple to drag and drop photos for more than one person at a time.  Now, all cameras at the Holiday gathering can share all of the photos taken with everyone at the gathering with a simple drag and drop. 

All content you share with friends, family and “Groups” automatically appear on their LifeGoRound-enabled Digital Frame.  It’s “simply” incredible!

COO of Facebook and VP of Engineering for Facebook Present Media Street’s eMotion Social-Connect at Conference

Posted by MediaStreetBloggr on 6th December 2009

Sheryl Sandberg - COO of Facebook

Sheryl Sandberg - COO of Facebook

The 7th Annual Gadgets Program: What’s Hot and What’s Not in Personal Technology

Speakers:
Greg Harper, President, Harpervision Associates
Walt Mossberg, Columnist, The Wall Street Journal
Sheryl Sandberg, Chief Operating Officer, Facebook
Mike Schroepfer, VP Engineering, Facebook
Kara Swisher, Co-Executive Director, AllThingsDigital

Once again, just before the holidays, the Churchill Club presents Walt Mossberg, influential personal technology columnist for the Wall Street Journal, together with Kara Swisher, co-producer and co-host with Mossberg of the popular “All Things Digital” conference, and Greg Harper, president of Harpervision Associates and co-founder of Gadgetoff, with their annual gadget show-and-tell. This year’s “tech geek” special guests are Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook’s COO, and Mike Schroepfer, Facebook’s VP of Engineering. Whether it’s cameras, ebooks, smart phones, or the coolest gadgets you’ve never heard of—Walt, Kara, Greg, Sheryl and Mike will reveal their latest and greatest favorite consumer tech products: which ones they consider worth the money and which ones are over-rated. These folks are not afraid to name names.

Sheryl Sandberg and Mike Schroepfer showcase the eMotion Social-Connect Digital Frame as a cool “wireless” way to send your Facebook photos to a Digital Photo Frame.

When Norm Levy met with Mike Schroepfer, “Schrep”, as he is known in the industry, applauded Norm and his company for a job “well done” integrating Facebook-connect into the new LifeGoRound platform for sending Facebook photos to a Digital Photo Frame (such as the eMotion Social-Connect).

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.”
