By: The Nixplay Team
Christmas is a time of family gatherings, where people can appreciate, rejoice, gift. We’re sure that you can think of lists of verbs to describe all the precious memories of years past. Many of you would even have photo albums with smiling family members watching with joy as her grandchildren unwrap their Christmas goodies with sheer elation on their faces.
Yet, the chronicled memories of yesteryear may not be recorded for much longer as photo albums are increasingly becoming confined to the history books as your family members, particularly younger generations take Christmas selfies, send them on Snapchat or to a few friends through messaging and social media platforms only to be disappear or get deleted before the arrival of the new year.
Despite such changes, some are finding opportunities in this new, connected world. Fred and Beva, a couple, that had recently retired in Minnesota wanted to buy a product that they could show off their love for photography, opting for a WiFi digital frame, the Nixplay Edge, designed and developed by Nixplay.
They joyfully discovered that the product they bought was much more than a simple digital frame to display pictures, but a tool that built precious memories as they noted: “We have relatives across the country and wanted to be able to easily share our family memories. When our family visited and saw our frame in action they all were impressed and fascinated with them. Nixplay offered the best technology, sharing capabilities and ease of use. They have been a perfect gift to share all the family fun and memories.”
For the couple, that have been together for over four decades and recently relocated from Pennsylvania, this connection was something that money couldn’t buy. Having family scattered across the U.S., with their 95-year old grandmother living in Florida, a sister in South Carolina and two children that also live in Minnesota. They were determined to maintain the precious connections with their loved ones and saw Nixplay’s digital picture frame offerings as the best tool for the job.
“When our family visited and saw our frame in action they all were impressed and fascinated with them,” they said. “Nixplay offered the best technology, sharing capabilities and ease of use.”
The happy couple added that they were pleasantly surprised with the frame’s capabilities, particularly after the negative experiences that they had with digital frames from other brands.
Essentially, Nixplay has allowed them to find an ecosystem to meaningfully connect in the digital age: “Sadly, we often atomize knowledge into pieces that don’t have a home in a larger conceptual framework. When this happens, we surrender meaning to guardians of knowledge and it loses its personal value.”
The immense personal value that the Nixplay Edge frames gave Fred and Beva was highlighted by the joy that it brought to their grandmother: “It’s absolutely the best family gift. It’s the next best thing to being there for distant relatives. Grandmother has her frame on her end table and spends hours watching her great grandchildren. Now she feels that she doesn’t miss any special times and feels more connected than ever.”
It was a magical moment for them to witness how the connected ecosystem that the Nixplay Edge frames offer allows them to share all these special moments in real-time such as birthdays, holidays and fun events. The unrivalled ease of use that the technology offers is one significant element that Fred lauds when talking about the digital frame: “My wife is the administrator for all the frames and she posts new pictures after all events. We preloaded the frames with playlists and then mailed them as gifts. The only thing the family had to do was connect the frame to their internet and they were set to go. There are always new pictures added at least weekly.”
The cheer was spread, in a true Christmas-like spirit through Nixplay’s innovation in technology has allowed them not only to pursue their passion in photography, but allows them to chronicle, organize and keep record of this. Fred and Beva praise the fact that they can easily sort their photos in playlists, segregate photos by categories and customize playlists for different family members. The product solidifies itself as a true leader in the field by its mobile app where photos can be uploaded, allowing Fred and Beva’s loved ones to add photos real-time.
Christmas is a time of giving, sharing and creating family moments. Nixplay has not only created a digital frame, but a priceless tool that adds value by being an emblem of love, togetherness and happiness; making it the best investment in this season of giving.
