Epson is introducing its newest product
in the Multimedia Storage Viewer category, the Epson P-4000. Epson is
continuing to develop products that meet the changing needs of today's digital
photographer. The Epson P-4000 Multimedia Storage Viewer has many of the same
features and strengths of the popular Epson P-2000, but now offers double the
hard drive capacity with 80GB for storing and sharing an even larger number
of photos along with video and music files.
The Epson P-4000 is the perfect portable companion to any digital camera
with its built-in card slots, high storage capacity and Epson's exclusive and
highly-regarded large 3.8" LCD with Epson Photo Fine technology for the
ultimate in color, detail and clarity.
The Epson P-4000 and the Epson P-2000 both offer Epson's exclusive Photo
Fine technology, which utilizes two core techniques-ultra fine precision
processing and the capability to deliver three colors (red, green and blue)
per pixel. Additionally, this unique technology provides an incredible pixel
density of 212 pixels per inch, which ensures that every detail of downloaded
images is displayed with vibrancy and clarity. Typical digital camera viewing
panels and competitive viewer products only offer one color per pixel and
approximately 80-100 pixels per inch.
Engineered with precision manufacturing, Epson Photo Fine enables the LCD
to display images with brilliant color and exquisite detail for remarkable
image quality. This level of detail is vital for customers who want to zoom
in, inspect and view photos more closely.
The Epson P-4000 is the third Multimedia Storage Viewing product
introduction from Epson and addresses the customer's need for increased
storage capacity. It is equipped with an 80GB hard drive for storing over
75,000 images, over 25,000 songs or about 90 to 300 hours of video. It
supports JPEG image files as well as RAW files (on select digital SLR
cameras), MPEG-4 and Motion JPEG video files and MP3 and AAC audio files.
This product is also designed with a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 interface for easily and
quickly transferring these files to and from a computer.
With its large storage capacity, the customer can copy files to the Epson
P-4000 from the memory card and clear the memory card immediately to begin
taking more pictures. When all of the images have been downloaded to the
multimedia storage viewer from the memory card, the viewer can then be
connected to a computer to back up the images to ensure they are saved.
With its built-in memory card slots, the Epson P-4000 is compatible with
most digital camera memory types. It offers native support for CompactFlash
Type I and II and Secure Digital memory cards and supports additional cards
with an optional third-party adapter (sold separately).
The Epson P-4000 features an intuitive menu that makes it simple to create
albums to categorize and group files, so they can be quickly accessed and
viewed. Customers can also create a slideshow set to music for a fun and
creative way to view and share images. For sharing images on an even bigger
screen, the P-4000 Multimedia Storage Viewer has a video interface-NTSC or
PAL-that can connect directly to a television, monitor or projector with an
optional third party video cable.
The Epson P-4000 is both Windows and Macintosh compatible and is
also equipped with the ability to print directly to select Epson printers.
This product is a lightweight, battery-powered device that is easy to
travel with and comes with one lithium ion battery and charger/AC adapter,
which when fully charged will support about three hours of continuous slide
show viewing, or over two hours of continuous downloading from a memory card.
Also included is a Hi-Speed USB 2.0/1.1 cable, a stand for either viewing
slideshows with others or simply just keeping the unit securely in place, a
carrying case for added protection, and a wrist strap.
The Epson P-4000 is currently available for a
price of $699.
