Allowing Picasa users to easily display and share their photo collection

Additionally, using RSS technology, the PhotoVu frame can directly download photos from Picasa Web Albums, letting friends and family easily display and share their published photos.

"For a typical PhotoVu customer who has tens of thousands of photos, they need a photo management solution that is fast and efficient, and we've found that Picasa is 'best in class' when it comes to the speed of accessing and organizing large volumes of photos," said Mark Van Buskirk, Partner, PhotoVu.
