Sony HDPS-L1 Photo Storage Unit

Sony HDPS-L1PMA 2006: Sony USA Press Release

ORLANDO, Fla. (PMA, Booth #4150), Feb. 25, 2006- Sony Electronics is transforming static, digital images into a rich audio visual experience with the world’s first dedicated photo storage unit with high-definition output. Featuring eight slideshow styles with image transitions synchronized to pre-installed background music and high-definition video output, the new HDPS-L1 hard drive photo storage unit offers an interactive way to view and share high-resolution photos from holidays, reunions and birthday parties on a home theatre system. “We expect all sorts of people will take advantage of this new photo storage device to rescue treasured memories buried in their computers and on memory cards, and bring them to life with its built-in slideshow feature,” said Jim Leahey, general manager of peripherals and enhancements at Sony Electronics. “It finally gives high-resolution still pictures the visual realism usually reserved for motion-pictures.”

The HDPS-L1 hard drive photo storage unit eliminates the effort required to organize printed photos, as it automatically sorts picture files by their creation date. It also provides the option to group images by type, such as travels and holidays.

About half the size of a typical DVD player, the device is easily incorporated into a home theatre system with standard audio and video cables that connect to a television. A wireless remote control helps “surf” through years of photos by theme or date, select slide show styles, and adjust the volume for background music.

The HDPS-L1 hard drive photo storage unit supports seven types of flash media cards - Memory Stick®, Memory Stick PRO™, Memory Stick Duo™, Memory Stick PRO Duo™, CompactFlash®, Microdrive®, SD Card™ and xD Picture Card® slots.

To download .jpeg or Sony RAW files to the photo storage device, simply insert any of the supported flash memory cards and press the one-touch copy button. Files can also be downloaded to the hard drive via the unit’s built-in USB port. In addition to storing files, this device can write to any of the supported memory cards.

The HDPS-L1 photo storage device will be available in May for about $300 at SonyStyle.com, at Sony Style® retail stores (http://www.sonystyle.com/retail), and at authorized dealers nationwide.

  1. This one's good. I have been wondering why manufacturers hadn't produced such a machine for 1.5 years.

  2. I love Sony so much that I try to buy Sony as much as possible. However, this Sony HDPS-L1 is the least satisfactory machine among the Sony products. The pros is stunning images, but cons are to many. The wav sound files refuse to play and I think it's a defect in the manufacturing. There are bugs in the software. If a folder is edited by a computer, the images there may require two or more trys before they can play in slide-shows. The machine is very user-unfriendly and is sluggish. It adopts a system unlike any other standards. The machine looks like it were designed not by Sony, but by some third-rate designers. My advice is wait for a year before you buy a new model.

  3. As a storage for digital RAW images it needs more capacity
    For a slideshow presentation all preset unchangeable settings are very distracting
    Sound can only be downloaded in memory wasting WAV format
    Advice is to wait for other models to come on the market
