I'd like to install a digital photo album at our small town's Visitor Info Centre. As far as I have found so far, most of these peripherals only display picture files, e.g. JPEGs.
I'd like to build a slide show with my own transitions and titles in Pro Show Gold and export it to Quicktime (audio would be nice to include, but is not my priority - don't want to add "noise" to the info centre!).
Anyone know of a brand that is capable of running Quicktime or maybe even Flash? i.e. not just pics?
thanks,
Bill Horne

This really seems to be video slide show problem. I'm just starting a project using Adobe Encore and that software seems to be perfect for what you are doing.

Here is a video to show you the basics. Encore exports as Blue-ray, DVD and Flash.

Since Microsoft dropped support,  Quicktime it is going out of favour.

Cheers,

Thanks, Tom - looks like a nice interface ;-)

I realize my original post wasn't clear enough: I'm looking for a digital photo album ardware device, not slide or presentation software, e.g. http://tinyurl.com/2a86vr4.
It seems that most of these devices will take camera cards, USB memory sticks or even a USB-computer connection, and a few even offer some image "touch ups", but I can't find one that will run Quicktime or Flash files - just still pics like JPEGs.

Update: apparently there's a Kodak Easy Share digital photo frame that can handle video and audio formats, plus models from Panadigital and probably others, too. Now to assess what brand and model will work best...

I did misread the post but I posted that reply as I thought the best device would be a small flat screen television with a built in DVD player. Something like these:

http://www.nextag.com/flat-screen-tv-with-...dvd/stores-html

I think it would be more likely to fit the bill and they start from $140.

Yes, good idea. Will see if I can find one small enough to fit in the allotted space at the Info Centre ;-)

Be careful with Kodak's Easy Share products: the software inside those frames is not-so-reliable, and tends to hang the device (full power-cycle required) when trying to display perfectly good JPG files (yes, I updated the firmware); just my two cents.
