It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words, and a moving picture worth even more. Now a company in the UK is enticing businesses to go beyond the confines of eye-catching text, colorful graphics and product photos with TV in a Card.
The brainchild of Russell Lawley-Gibbs and Robert Green, a standard TV in a Card folder has A4 (297 x 210 mm / 11.7 x 8.3 inches) dimensions and opening the cover reveals a 4.3-inch, 320 x 240 resolution, 16:9 aspect LCD display powered by a custom board with built-in storage for about 30 minutes of video footage. There's an included speaker and headphone jack, and the Li-ion battery lasts about 1.5 hours before needing to be charged via the included USB port.
If required, battery capacity can be increased to up to 7.5 hours and onboard storage boosted up to 2GB – which is said to be enough for 4.5 hours of video. Customers can opt to have the video auto-start when the card is opened or manual control buttons can be positioned under the display (or elsewhere, if desired). Available controls include a power on/off switch, volume control, program/episode selection, play/pause, and fast forward/rewind.
