Cumberland, R.I. (Jan. 10, 2012)–ION Audio, a leader in consumer audio and entertainment technology, introduces PICS 2 GO, a portable photo, slide and negative scanner for iPhone 4 or iPhone 4s. Attendees can get a first look at PICS 2 GO at booth #12442 during the Consumer Electronics Show taking place January 10–13, 2012 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

PICS 2 GO from ION is the easiest way to bring precious photos, negatives and slides into the digital realm by using the built-in camera on the iPhone 4. PICS 2 GO is an ideal app accessory for iPhone 4 owners because anyone with an iPhone 4 can instantly digitize and share classic prints, slides and negatives without ever using a computer.

PICS 2 GO removes all the hassle of digitizing prints, negatives and slides. This mini photo booth is a simple solution that will bring treasured pictures onto a user’s iPhone 4 in seconds, ready to be shared with friends and family. PICS 2 GO includes a free app for iPhone 4 that allows users to edit slides and pictures and invert negatives into actual photos. The app also includes color correction, brightness controls and the ability to email or post a picture to Facebook instantly, all without a computer. PICS 2 GO is a sure-fire way to get a reaction when sharing that classic photo, brought back to life in seconds.

The PICS 2 GO photo tray features separate areas for 3x5 and 4x6 prints so the picture is held perfectly straight and ready to capture. There is a hinged frame that gently presses photos flat and prevents them from bowing. The design of PICS 2 GO ensures consistency and quality because photos are always in the same position with the same lighting, and your iPhone camera is always in the same spot. There's no adjustment needed and no guesswork.

Two additional trays are included, one for negatives and one for slides. Simply load in slides or negatives and slide the tray into PICS 2 GO. Now anyone with an iPhone 4 can rediscover classic family slides or finally make use of those old negatives.

“This is our most portable and versatile solution for archiving photos, slides and negatives” said Wendy Mittelstadt, Product Manager, ION Audio. “Thanks to the high quality camera inside the iPhone 4 or iPhone 4s, transferring your old photos to the Internet has never been faster.”
