memory cards) that you would like to include. For more information, see Section

12. Tips and Techniques
12.1. Utilizing Auto-Start Feature
Utilize the Auto-Start feature to have Image Moments automatically start a
photo slideshow when it is powered on. You can set it to Auto-Start and
play Photos, Videos, Photo & Videos, or a Playlist.
For the Auto-Start Photo/Video/Photo & Video options, Image Moments
will automatically start a slideshow and play all of the Photos or Videos or
Photos & Videos on the Internal Memory of Image Moments.
For the Auto-Start Playlist option, Image Moments will automatically start
a slideshow of the first Playlist (by alphabetical order) of all Playlists.
Change the desired Auto-Start option under Setup > Playback Options >
Slideshow Settings according to your preference.
12.2. Utilizing Memory Source Select Feature
On Image Moments, you can select to playback files from a specific
memory source or any combination of available memory sources at the
same time. This gives you flexibility in how you organize your photos
and allows you full access to all memory sources.
By default, all available memory sources will be automatically selected.
Under Playback Sources section on the HOME screen, you can specify
which memory source(s) you would like to include.
For example, if you select CF as the only memory source and choose
Photo in Browse Mode, only the photos on the CF card will appear.
12.3. Using Playlist to Create Virtual Collections
You can use the Playlist feature on Image Moments to create collections of
specific photos and videos to playback. The benefit of using the Playlist
features is that you can have the same copy of a specific photo, video, or
music file included in different Playlists. This will save you the trouble of
making multiple copies of the same file to include in each collection.
To learn more about how to use the Playslist feature, see Section 10
Managing Playlists.

Version 1.0.1-R0
Image Moments
User’s Guide
12.4. Organizing your Photos by Folders/Events
The Folder View Mode of Image Moments lets you browse and access
your files on the Internal Memory or memory cards by folder structure.
You can use this feature to view and play slideshows of only the contents
of a chosen folder.
By organizing your collection of files into separate folders, you will be
able to easily organize playback of specific sets of photos, videos, and
music to suit your needs.
A good way to organize your photos is to include a date code at the
beginning of each folder name. By doing this, you will be able to see your
folders on Image Moments in date sequence. As you collect years and
years of memories on your Image Moments Internal Memory or memory
card, you will be able to scan through them quickly by date to find exact
events for playback.
One recommendation to do this is to use the first four digits of the file
name to identify the year and month of the event. Then use the remainder
to identify the event so you can recognize and find it more easily.
Example:
YYMMeventname
event description
Last 2 Digits of Year
2 Digits for Month
By starting with the year first and then the month, Image Moments will be
able to list the folders starting from the earliest year and month to the most
recent.
Now you can easily identify the different photo collections you have and
select the photos you want to view.

Image Moments
User’s Guide
12.5. Organizing Your Files to Play in a Specified Order
By default, Image Moments plays your files in alphabetical order. Photos
and videos on your memory card inserted directly into Image Moments
from your digital camera will play in the order they were taken.
If you want to arrange your photos so that they playback in a specific
sequence, you can use the computer to rename the files with some kind of
sequential naming pattern to match your desired playback sequence.
For instance, if you rename your files to start with 001, 002, 003, … ,
Image Moments will play the files in numerical sequence starting with the
lowest number first.
Alternatively, you can use alphabetical characters (I.e., A, B, C, …) to
organize your files.
Note: If you choose to do this, make sure that each file name has the same number of
characters in the name. You may need to fill in leading zeros to do this.
On Image Moments, you can also choose to sort files by File Date (created
date) and File Size.
12.6. Displaying a Microsoft PowerPoint Presentation
Image Moments can display your Microsoft PowerPoint presentations.
1. In PowerPoint with your presentation open, select Save As from the
File menu and chose JPEG for the file type – PowerPoint will create a
folder and save each slide of your presentation as a JPEG file.
2. Copy the folder and the created JPEG slides to the Internal Memory
of Image Moments or to a memory card.
3. On Image Moments, navigate to the folder in Folder View Mode and
play the JEPG slides in that folder.
Note: PowerPoint will not add leading zeros to the file name of the JPEG files that it
creates. To make the presentation play in the correct order, you may need to manually
rename the files so all the slide file names all have the same number of characters.
(E.g., rename slide1.jpg to slide01.jpg to match slide10.jpg ~ slide99.jpg.)

The slide interval is set to 1-Second, but it seems to take longer than 1
second to change the picture. Why is it like this?
ƒ Photos of larger file sizes will take more time to load. Selecting
1-Second does not mean that the next photo will appear in exactly
1 second. It means that the next photo will start the loading
process after 1 second. Large files may take longer than 1 second
to display.

15. Digital Foci LCD Display Pixel Policy
This section defines the different types of pixel anomalies seen on LCD displays, explains
why such anomalies occur, and states standard pixel policy for warranty service. In order to
qualify for repair or replacement under warranty, the number of pixel anomalies on your
LCD panel must exceed these industry standards.
Why Pixel Anomalies Occur
Active-matrix LCD technology uses rows and columns of addressable locations (pixels) that
render text and images on the display. Each pixel location has three subpixels in the primary
colors of red, green, and blue that allow the image to be rendered in full color. Each subpixel
has a corresponding transistor responsible for turning the subpixel on and off.
The standard of production techniques for LCD manufacturing today cannot guarantee an
absolutely fault-free display. During the production process, it is not uncommon for one or
more pixels to be fixed in an unchanging state. The visible result is a pixel or subpixel with a
fixed color that does not change or one that is dark and does not light at all. In most
situations, these fixed pixels are unnoticeable and do not detract from the display quality or
usability.
Types of Pixel Anomalies
There are two types of pixel anomalies: bright pixel anomaly and dark pixel anomaly.
Bright pixel anomaly: A bright pixel anomaly is defined as a pixel or subpixel that is always
lit or ‘on’. The bright pixel anomaly will constantly show as red, green, blue, or white.
Dark pixel anomaly: A dark pixel anomaly is defined as a pixel or subpixel that is always
dark or ‘off’. The dark pixel anomaly will always be dark and will not show any color.
Standard Pixel Policy
Digital Foci warrants that any LCD display with an unacceptable number of pixel anomalies
will be repaired or replaced. To qualify for repair or replacement under warranty, the number
of pixel anomalies on the TFT LCD panel must exceed these industry standards.
