Send and Receive Digital Video and Pictures Over the Phone

  • Send real-time video or pictures to friends
  • Use it as a picture frame to display a photo or a slideshow of photos
  • No additional phone charges to use

    Videophones have evolved from futuristic movie props to standard practice. Now you can add instant live, color motion video to your phone calls with the Beamer FX? Videophone, which also lets you display and send digital pictures. The Beamer FX? Videophone works from any standard analog phone line on any home phone, even cordless! No special wiring or services fees are required, and there is no additional cost for your phone calls.

    Beamer FX? sets up in three easy steps. Simply plug your phone into Beamer FX? Videophone, plug Beamer FX? Videophone into your wall phone jack, and plug in the power adapter. That's all that's needed in order to use your Beamer FX? Videophone as a videophone and digital picture frame. The Beamer FX? Videophone features a clear, bright 3.5" TFT LCD flat-screen display.

    When placing a call with your Beamer FX? Videophone, the person you are calling must also have a Beamer or H.324-compatible device. The quality of your video call depends on the quality of your phone line; you can also adjust the video sharpness by adjusting the balance between detail and movement. Send pictures back and forth to friends during a video call. You can save up to 12 pictures in your Beamer FX? Album, including snapshots and pictures received during video calls and pictures from memory cards.

    You can also use your Beamer FX? Videophone as a digital picture frame, to display photos while you're not on a video call. Pictures can be selected in a variety of ways. Friends can send them during calls, or you can save them from multiple memory cards. Once pictures have been saved, you can play a slideshow of pictures or display one picture continuously, so you'll always have your family and friends nearby.

    Buy the Beamer FX Videophones as a pair, and you'll be able to give one to a friend or loved one, instantly having someone to chat with over videophone. Vialta also makes a Beamer TV (available singly or in pairs). Beamer TV displays a live video image on your television screen.
