There was a time when digital photo frames were the craze. With the introduction of the Nixplay Seed Wave, we are now seeing an unexpected departure from the conventional picture-displaying digital equipment to one that can stream music and play short video clips anywhere anytime. The Seed Wave, for all its technical features, further blurs and thins the line between digital photo frames and tablets.
Perhaps what a tablet cannot provide is a humongous 13-inch HD screen; otherwise, it would be useless to call it a tablet. The Seed Wave understands the need for a large viewing space to showcase not only the pictures of the past but also instant snapshots of current everyday adventures that can be shared instantly through a stable internet connection.
Sure, it is possible to turn your old 10-inch tablet into a Seed Wave-like device, but the loss of some 3 inches of the display can surely get the fun out of showcasing those precious moments in your life.
The Seed Wave doesn’t only play your pictures. It has Bluetooth connectivity that allows it to easily pair with your music device or MP3 player. Don’t have an MP3 player? Not to worry as the Seed Wave can easily pair with any Bluetooth device including your laptop, smartphone, tablet, and even PC. As the pictures are showcased, you’re also giving these photos the kind of musical accompaniment that they deserve.
At the back of the 13-inch display is a pair of 5-watt speakers that comes fully integrated with amplifier and dedicated bass. It’s what can deliver stunning music to your pics and audio to your 15-second video clips. You’d wish Nixplay provided some MicroSD card port on the side, though.
Regardless, the Nixplay Seed Wave is a great photo frame that doubles as a video clip presenter and wireless music streaming device.
