Digital photo frames are becoming simplified home entertainment systems. Sagem Communications’ 8-inch AgfaPhoto AF5080W offers high-speed WiFi connectivity so consumers can access online photo websites or other sites. WiFi also provides a way to bring in MP3 tracks that can play along with the images. When viewers tire of photos but can’t get to the main TV, the frame can play MPEG2/MPEG1 videos from a set-top box.

USB connectivity and SD card compatibility add more flexibility.
