Picture Porter Advanced Prepares to Transform Digital Picture and Video Management

Digital Foci, creator of a portable picture management tool, which allows photographers to view, backup, store, and organize pictures, seeks $63,000 for device's finalization and production

Los Angeles, CA –December 4, 2013- Digital Foci, creator of Picture Porter Advanced, a portable digital picture management tool and high capacity storage device, has launched a campaign entitled, Picture Porter – Essential Digital Photo Manager, to raise $63,000 by December 14, 2013 (9:33 pm PST). Funding is needed to complete the device's production by implementing final firmware testing and creating tooling for the housing design. Pre-tested as FCC and CE compliant, this third generation Picture Porter is designed to replace or complement current picture and video handling tools.

Whether a professional photographer or a parent wanting to document life's precious moments, everyone can agree that pictures are important. But, managing those pictures can become an overwhelming task as they eat up memory on computers, phones, and tablets. Picture Porter Advanced makes organizing digital pictures easier than ever. "This device will change the way people back up, protect, organize, view, and share all of their digital photos," said Charles Huang, Chief Designer of the Picture Porter Advanced. "It is designed to improve every aspect of one’s photo management routine."

Picture Porter Advanced boasts a 5" TFT-LCD screen, up to 1 TB of storage via HDD (hard disk drive) or SSD (solid state drive), and USB connectors for devices ranging from laptops to USB flash drives and external hard drives. Photographers will benefit from the unit's compatibility with a wide variety of picture cards like CF (including UDMA), SD/SDHC/SDXC and microSD, no adapter necessary. Also, a HDMI connection for output to televisions or monitors makes viewing on a large screen possible (regular audio and video input/output jacks also included), a bonus when sharing pictures with large groups. For a complete list of features visit the campaign page.

In order to finalize Picture Porter Advanced, Digital Foci needs help. Sixteen support levels have been created with early bird contributors receiving the best deals. For example, a $299 contribution gets the donor a 500 GB HDD model; a $1199 pledge gets the contributor the ultimate, 1 TB SSD device.

Digital Foci believes in its products and wants satisfied customers. A 30-day return policy is detailed on the fundraising page.

Meh... I'd still rather use a tablet. Tablets have expandable memories contrary to what he's telling and they have software for editing and keeping photos.

Oh, and tablets can connect to the web so you can have your back ups in both the tablet AND in the clouds.
