JOBO Introduces the Unique New ScanViewer

High resolution 8-inch multimedia digital picture frame features built-in photo scanner

Gummersbach, Germany (November 9, 2009) – JOBO AG announces today the addition of the new ScanViewer to the growing JOBO family of digital picture frames. This high resolution 8” multimedia digital picture frame features a built-in photo scanner to help bring old analogue prints that have been trapped in dusty shoe boxes back to life.

This innovative and unique new product quickly and easily digitizes up to 4x6-inch (10x15cm) printed photos and presents them directly on its 8” high resolution display. Via a USB connection, the scanned pictures that have been saved to the JOBO ScanViewer’s 1 GB internal memory can be transferred to a connected PC or be printed to a PictBridge™ compatible photo printer. This multimedia digital picture frame plays videos, as well as music, and can be operated intuitively and conveniently by its touch activated buttons or via remote control.

“JOBO is pleased to offer this one-of-kind digital picture frame to photo enthusiasts,” said Johannes Bockemuehl-Simon, JOBO’s CEO. “The new ScanViewer allows users to blend their old and forgotten photographic prints with their new modern digital images and video files which they can then set to music for creative and original image slideshows to share with family and friends.”
