Frame Media Launches Partner Certification Program

Program Will Enhance Product Development and Increase Value for Partner Companies

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - January 7, 2008) -


Frame Media, Inc. (, the leading provider of software and content for wireless picture frames, today announced the first ever partner certification program for consumer electronic brands (Brands), original equipment manufacturers (OEM), outsourced design manufacturers (ODM) and semiconductor companies in the digital photo frame market.

Frame Media's certification program enables participants to incorporate the FrameChannel platform into their product offerings. FrameChannel is a market leader in delivering dynamic, personalized content to wireless photo frames. With FrameChannel, owners of wireless digital frames can marry their photos from their personal computer or favorite photo sharing sites and social networks with content from over 300 different channels in the FrameChannel library.

The FrameChannel certification program focuses on four distinct sectors of the digital picture frame industry: Brands, OEMs, ODMs and semiconductor companies. By working closely with these manufacturers through a certified program, Frame Media's goal is to enhance the user experience by making it as easy as possible to get the content each frame owner wants, when they want it, delivered directly to their wireless frame.

Frame Media has made the program accessible to all manufacturers by creating three levels of certification:

--  Frame Enabled - the device is compatible with FrameChannel.
--  Frame Integrated - the device is FrameChannel compatible and promoted
    within the user interface of the device.
--  Frame Integrated Plus - in addition to FrameChannel compatibility and
    promotion, a FrameChannel Integrated Plus solution will require advanced
    customization to create unique user experiences beyond the traditional
    photo frame slideshow.

Frame Media will promote certified partners on their website and -- the leading blog in the category.

Frame Media's inaugural partners include Amlogic, Digital Spectrum, D-link, Quanta Microsystems, RMI Corporation, SigmaTel and Ubicom. More information is available at

"But in order for the market to reach its full potential, the end to end user experience must be perfected. This will require tight integration between hardware and the web, which is what the FrameChannel certification program is all about."
