This week in New York City, Toshiba used the high-profile venue of House Beautiful Magazine’s Kitchen of the Year, a weeklong temporary exhibit at Rockefeller Center, to make the case for its place in the warmest corners of a home: in the kitchen and around the hearth.
The company displayed the two models in its new category of Wi-Fi-connectable digital media frames (product details ran on our Web site and in our daily newsletter on July 22) along with a grouping of kitchen-optimized small-screen LCD/DVD combination TVs in white and stainless-steel finishes that complement cutting-edge kitchen designs.
“The digital media frame market offers great potential,” Louis R. Masses, director of product planning for Toshiba’s Digital AV Group, said. “Toshiba is entering it because we see potential not just in photo frames but in a new way to deliver content into the home. And it’s a tremendous gift device for the holiday season. It’s a new category that’s not in many homes, especially in this form, where the value is all this displayable content.”
