Although PhotoVu primarily markets its PV1740 digital picture frames to consumers, these units can also be sold by businesses as simple electronic digital displays to their clients.

The PV1740 is a wall-mounted, WiFi 17- in. LCD TFT display that includes a custom frame and mat made to order. Featuring a display resolution of 1280 x 960 (4:3) and 24-bit color, the PV1740 can be run on just about any device that has a Web browser and a network connection. Alternately, the frame can also be used in stand-alone mode without a network or computer, using a USB flash drive or an optional 40-GB removable hard drive. The PV1740 integrates with major photomanagement software and supports JPEG, TIFF, BMP, PNG, and GIF files.

Size: approximately 19 x 24 x 2.125 in. (inside dimensions of 16 x 20 in.). Weight: 18 lbs, depending upon frame. A variety of frames and matboard are available; custom frames are also available. PV1740 price: $899 (a 19-in. version is also available, for $1299). (PhotoVu: www.photovu.com)
