AVIR devices convert and/or record clips into PSP™ compatible media format. Video and images recorded at memorable occasions can be shown instantly on the PSP™ screen. Left-out themes will be captured on site and memories of these events will be treasured forever. No more missing clips or regrettable moments afterward.
