The Frame TV displays content from "a range of custom-designed art pieces or the user’s own content", and uses "a sensor to adjust on-screen brightness, designed to match the natural light level in a room, and resulting in a look that closely resembles a framed work of art".

“Ideal for the bedroom or kitchen, The Frame 43-inch gives Australians more options as to where in their home they enjoy the seamless partnering of a premium entertainment experience with stunning art and design.”
