A Little Bit About Ceiva
In 2000 CEIVA Logic, Inc. was founded by former Disney executives with a pioneering vision: to bring the world together through the power of digital photography. Industry leaders then and now, CEIVA was the first company to invent and market digital photo frames. Their award-winning, patented technology has positioned their product line as the premier choice in the marketplace.  Always at the forefront of industry breakthroughs, CEIVA continues to innovate advances in the way consumers see, share and store their digital photos.

Our Experience
We live fairly far away from most of our family. Although we can now visit with a few hour car ride, it doesn't happen nearly as much as I would like. So we rely on phone calls, pictures, emails, and texts with most of our family so that we can "stay connected". The CEIVA 80 Pro makes that so much easier.

This is not just your average digital frame! It has so many bells and whistles, I don't know where to begin.
When the frame arrived, everything needed to get it set up was right in the box (including two interchangeable face plates; wood grain, and black). After a quick registration process online, we chose to set it up with a wireless connection, so if we want to move it from room to room it's easier. Next, we simply inserted the wireless key in the back of the frame and selected the option to find our wireless network in the frames menu settings, entered our  networks password, and we were up and running!

After the frame was successfully connected, I went back into our CEIVA account online to customize it. I uploaded some of my favorite pictures, and selected some of my favorite "CEIVA channels". CEIVA channels offers something for everyone. We have local weather displayed on ours (provided by The Weather Channel) ESPN News, NFL Network (dh is slightly obsessed with football like most men ;), the quote of the day, recipe of the day, and the New York Times Headline News. I sent out an invitation to our frame to family and friends so that they can send pictures directly to our frame You can also insert your SD card directly into the frame to view pictures. The possibilities really are endless with the CEIVA! For the PERFECT family Holiday gift, pick up a bundle pack of CEIVA frames; each frame comes with a 1 yr PicturePlan. There's nothing better than staying connected to the one's we love......."Life Shared.  Life Celebrated.".
