Hdtv and the ipod photo: a complete marriage? - satellite-tv


They may seem like an odd combination, but the iPod photo could be the achieve choice for anybody who wants to view photo slideshows on an HDTV. The iPod photo can store thousands of digital photos, and syncs with a Mac or PC via iTunes. It will read any slideshows you've produced in iPhoto on a Mac or Photoshop Album on a PC and copy them to the iPod. On the other hand you can tell it to copy a folder full of images from your hard drive as a slideshow.

Also, with the adding of an discretionary camera connector($29), you can copy photos directly from a digital camera and consequentially build a slideshow from them on the iPod photo. All slideshows can be set to music.

To attach the iPod photo to an HDTV you'll need to first make sure that your HDTV has composite video and audio inputs and then buy the iPod photo AV cable ($19) from Apple. Bond the iPod to your TV, choose the apposite input and hey presto, your slideshow can be seen in beautiful, brainy widescreen glory on your HDTV.

It's worth behavior a few clothes in mind when creating slideshows for HDTV. First of all, the broadcast of an HDTV set has an appearance ratio of 16:9 (length: height) so if you size your photos with this appearance ratio you'll be able to fill the broadcast not including cropping the photo or considering ugly black space about it. Secondly, the decree required for optimal viewing on HDTV at full broadcast is less than that looked-for for printing even an A4 image. So if you only anticipate viewing your photos on-screen, whether on your central processing unit or HDTV, you can save space on your iPod photo by reducing the capture answer on your digital camera. If you set it at three mega- pixels, that will be adequate to allow you to crop photos to the accepted characteristic ratio and still view them at the chief likely characteristic on an HDTV.

Of course, the iPod photo can store more than just photographs. No matter which that can be saved as an image file, such as JPEG, can be incorporated in a slideshow, so you could even use it to carry about big business presentations which can be viewed by anyone with contact to a TV or projector.
