In a partnership with Intel Corporation, Lineage Labs created the Bevy, an in-home connected device and app that collects, organizes and protects digital photos and videos taken by different people on different devices.
What Bevy provides is an easy (and private) way for multi-user families and groups to collect and share digital photos and videos in one place. It also helps free up storage space on mobile devices by automatically transferring photos to the in-home Bevy that can be accessed from anywhere.
Bevy’s unique hybrid technology consists of a smart, small connected device that lives in the home, plus a mobile app that everyone in the family can use. The app enables users to easily contribute and view photos from the entire family collection, anytime and anywhere—regardless of whether they are in the same location as the physical Bevy device.
Using an HDMI cable, Bevy can be connected to a TV enabling users to simply “fling” a photo in the Bevy app onto the big screen for at-home viewing. Bevy photos and videos can also be shared easily via social networks, text or email, or saved to a smartphone or tablet directly through the app.
All of a family’s digital photos and videos are stored within the Bevy and can be additionally safeguarded through in-home backup (at no additional charge) or secure encrypted cloud backup (for an additional fee).
Each Bevy contains either 1TB storage capacity, which equates to approximately 400,000 high-res photos, or a 2TB option that can hold approximately a million photos. Bevy is available for purchase in blue, black and purple in a 1TB ($349) or 2TB ($429) size at bevy.us, and there’s currently a special launch price on the 1TB of $299 or 2TB size of $349. It’s also available on Amazon.com.
