If you can’t make the visit to The Metroplitan Museum of Art or the Museum of Modern Art anytime soon, bring the museums to you. That’s part of what GalleryPlayer wants people to do as it supplies a digital library of fine art and photographic images for your TVs.
The company has announced a deal with Mitsubishi to embed its technology into the 2008 Mitsubishi HDTV lineup, something GalleryPlayer has previously done with Panasonic.
Owners of the Mitsubishi TVs will be able to play back the rights-protected HD images whenever they want to check them out or wow friends by turning on slideshows during parties. GalleryPlayer will also team with Mitsubishi on a co-branded website, where owners can purchase, download, export and manage their image collections.
Content partners of GalleryPlayer’s range from fine art image providers to National Geographic to 1,000 Places to See Before You Die to Greatest Golf Holes, just to name a few. All look pretty impressive on large 1080p screens, which themselves are undergoing more aesthetic transformations to look better on your walls.
