Panasonic joins a growing trend to add new functions and features to digital photo frames by unveiling a multimedia-capable frame with an iPod Dock.
Secaucus, NJ (November 12, 2009) – Panasonic today announced the debut of its first audio system with iPod dock and photo frame. The MW-10 combines several components into one sleek system, making it the ultimate multimedia solution for den, office, bedroom, dorm room or living room.
Sporting an elegant silhouette, the MW-10 sounds as good as it looks. It pumps out audiophile-quality sound from its built-in CD player, and its FM/AM radio tuner has 45-station (30-FM/15-AM) Preset Memory. The speaker is constructed with rigid, low-density bamboo cones to achieve pure sound and crisp dialogue. Special diffusers installed in front of the speaker units disperse sound over a wide listening area. For robust bass sounds, the D.Bass function enhances bass in conjunction with the volume level.
The Universal Dock for iPod* plays music and video downloads. The MW-10 even has an included remote control which makes it easy to operate the iPod from a distance.
Boasting a 9-inch WVGA LCD, the MW-10 can display photos from a CD, SD Memory Card and internal memory. The 4 GB of internal memory stores image data for up to 6,000** photos and provides hours of viewing and listening enjoyment. With the CD playing background music, it can display a photo slideshow. In addition to a full-screen photo slideshow, the advanced display offers a versatile combination of screen options: clock and iPod track menu, calendar and photos, clock and photos, and audio and calendar.
An SD Memory Card slot and USB connectivity offer easy transfer of data from a PC or CD-R/RW. The MW-10 is Energy Star® qualified, and its UniPhier® LSI integrates all video signal processing circuits onto a single chip, which lowers power consumption and reduces the number of components.
Panasonic’s MW-10 will be available in December 2009 with a suggested retail price of $299.95.
