Electronic frames have been around for a long time, and most of us have used them to display hundreds of pictures of family and friends in a single ‘picture frame’ in our living room or a dresser in our bedroom. But have you ever thought about using an electronic frame to display quality artwork on your wall?
The main problem with electronic frames that display artwork is quality. A typical frame is great for your family photos, but it is too small, and the displays are of insufficient quality to effectively display most works of art. This is particularly true for modern art, where small gradations of color and texture are not incidental, but express the essence of the piece.
Potentially, an electronic frame can make your walls more interesting and stimulate your visual senses with rotating images featuring a single artist, school or genre, or juxtaposing different artists or genres in creative ways. In essence, you could enjoy the benefits of a museum visit every day, right in your home.
We all know that display technology has advanced, and that today’s wide screen TV’s and computer monitors allow us to watch movies at home that rival the local cinema.
The same technology that drives movie quality displays makes it possible for a photo frame to be large, flat, and display high-resolution images that can do justice to the nuances of almost any piece of artwork.
Meural is a leading pioneer in developing electronic frames specifically designed to display high quality images of fine art on your wall. In fact, they developed TrueArtTM technology, a proprietary blend of hardware, firmware, and software designed to render each image as lifelike and textured as gallery art.
The display screen itself is only a small part of what is required to properly showcase artwork. The Meural Canvas also has features such as a built-in light sensor to adjust each image to match the room’s lighting, an anti-glare matte display that deflects light and amplifies the color of the artwork, and gesture controls that allow you to browse through your artwork and learn about each piece with a wave of your hand.
You can own the Meural Canvas at a discount of $50 by using the discount code “THEARTSTORY” on the order page of Meural’s website. Each purchase will also benefit The Art Story foundation, allowing us to continue to develop new content on TheArtStory.org
