MDI was founded specifically to converge the latest imaging and digital
technologies with the world's leading designer brands. The 21st
century consumer wants technology to simplify their lives, but also
wants the quality, style, and workmanship associated with top designer
brands. MDI fulfills that need with products that ensure customer
satisfaction through our focus on innovation and convenience. The
founders of MDI created the first home décor digital photo frame back in
2006 and then sold over 7 million digital photo frames over the past 6
years. They also created the world's first touch interface digital photo
frame, the first "one step user interface," the first email photo frame,
and the first cellular photo frame during that same period. After years
of consumer feedback, MDI was formed to meet consumer demand for the
best home décor and tabletop designs.
Most digital images never leave "cyberspace," while digital photo frame
technology allows you to share and view those images every day in your
home and office, moving those cherished images out of your camera and
into your life. Now, with the creation of MDI and
LuxuryDigitalFrames.com, you can also proudly display those memories in
