Introduction
Main Features
With the viewer, you can easily save, view, and print images you have taken with a digital
camera. You can also play videos and music. The main features are described below.
❏
Epson Photo Fine Ultra is a high-resolution, wide color gamut (Adobe RGB) liquid
crystal display. You can view images easily in high resolution anywhere, anytime
without a computer or other special device.
❏ You can play videos and music easily anywhere, anytime without a computer or other
special device.
❏ You can print images directly with PictBridge enabled printers.
❏ You can save photo, video, and audio data in the viewer.
Important Notice
The viewer uses the hard disk as its storage medium. Although designed to be resistant
against mechanical and electromagnetic shock, because of the hard disk’s characteristics,
there is a danger that data may be lost or the service life of the viewer may be adversely
affected due to malfunction caused by these factors. Make sure to handle the viewer in
which your valuable image data is stored with care, and store backup copies to your
computer whenever possible.
c
Caution:
❏ Do not expose the viewer to any impact, doing so may cause malfunctions.
❏ Do NOT format the viewer’s hard disk drive from your computer, as this will render the
viewer inoperable. If this happens, you should contact an authorized Epson service
center. Repairs will be chargeable and are not covered by Epson’s warranties.
