Veo, a leading provider of high-quality digital imaging products and services, today announced a new digital camera line that is specifically designed for use with Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs). The Photo Traveler series of cameras plug into the expansion memory slots that have become common on handheld products.
“Veo introducing these new handheld cameras at a strategic price point should help the company expand its consumer brand in retail nationally,” said Chris Chute, Digital Imaging Senior Research Analyst for International Data Corporation. “Real-life applications for these cameras are ideal for gadget-oriented users who want new peripherals that expand their PDA’s functionalities while adding a new level of entertainment value.”
The addition of the Photo Traveler line is an extension of Veo’s mission to develop fun, affordable and innovative digital imaging products. With a simple, easy-to-use interface, the camera allows users to instantly capture, view, store and organize digital images in full color and beam these images wirelessly to other handheld devices for viewing. A swivel lens with adjustable focus ensures crisp photos from close or far away.
“In addition to a variety of consumer uses, there are some ideal business applications for the Photo Traveler series,” says Veo vice president Tim Martin. “For instance, insurance adjustors can use our cameras to take pictures of accidents. Other vertical business markets for our new PDA cameras include real estate agents who can now show off the ‘curb appeal’ and interior features of new properties with fellow agents from the road quickly and easily.”
The new handheld camera line, including Veo Photo Travelers for both Palm and PocketPC devices, takes 24-bit full color photos; includes automatic exposure; white balance and color control; and comes with a rugged and stylish travel case. The Veo Photo Traveler for Pocket PCs works with operating system versions PocketPC 2000 and PocketPC 2002. The Veo Photo Traveler for Palm works with PalmOS versions 4.0, 4.1 and 5.0.
The Veo Photo Traveler line will be available at major national retail stores in mid-October with a suggested retail price of $99.99.
