Creative Technology announced today the Zen Vision MP3 player which comes with a 3.7-inch SharpPix high-resolution 640x480 262,144-color screen for music video playback, as well as photo viewing.

The Zen Vision can carry tens of thousands of digital photos. For sharing pictures with family and friends, a composite video out connector enables full-color image output on any TV screen size. Users can watch slide shows set to favorite music played through headphones, the built-in speaker on the face of the player, or by connecting speakers such as a Creative I-Trigue 2.1 system.

The Plug&View slot on the side of the player supports both Compact Flash Type I and Type II media. An optional Compact Flash Adapter plugs directly into the Compact Flash slot to accept the most popular memory card types including SmartMedia, MultiMedia Card, Secure Digital, Memory Stick and many more.
