The Frame reads the room, automatically sensing and adjusting the screen’s lighting and contrast based on surrounding light so you can enjoy your content at its best. Whether watching videos as the sun shines through the window or enjoying a movie marathon in the dark, you get a view you will love.
Active Voice Amplifier
The Frame senses surrounding sound in real time to adjust volume and clarity, so even through the noise you can hear the voices — and the fun.
