Message Board

Audiovox Corp. announced a Digital Message Center, designed to completely shake up the digital frame market. You can display up to 100 pictures on the built-in 512-MB memory and go as high as 500 pictures with optional additional memory cards, but that is where the similarity to the competition ends. The Audiovox Digital Message Center features audio or audio/video-messaging capability through built-in camera and recorders. Family members can leave messages for playback and can even tag them to the built-in calendar so they play back on a specific date. In addition, the company has designed the digital message frames to be displayed in the kitchen with refrigerator mounting systems that include unique flat wire in three finishes to match most appliances. The system has a 7-inch LCD with 16:9 aspect ratio and 480x234 pixels. A digital clock and LED message indicator are also built in, and the magnetic border makes posting notes and coupons a breeze. There are even Post-it® pads for anyone needing to scribble a quick note. The systems are designed to mount either on a refrigerator, wall mount or stand on a counter and include the brackets for all three options.
