Product Specifications

Sony's approach to lifestyle integration is represented by the VAIO concept. VAIO is a graphical interpretation of the convergence of the analog and digital worlds. It also represents Video Audio Integrated Operation and the important role the Sony PC plays in fostering the convergence of audio, video, computers, and communications (AVCC). Additionally, the signature mark will provide a distinctive identity for all Sony AVCC convergence products. The VAIO concept is fundamental to creating a new entertainment, information and communications experience for consumers. The interface used with VAIO lets you download high-quality still images at high speeds directly from digital video (DV) camcorders such as the Sony Digital Handycam. You can then use these digital video images to add a new visual dimension to your documents. Or e-mail family pictures to loved ones.
