New Wireless Transfer Technology Consortium

A group of top-tier imaging companies, including Nikon, have launched a consortium to bring about the next generation of wireless transfer technology.

The premise behind the new technology is to embed wireless transfer capability directly into cameras and other applicances such as large-screen TV, instead of using separate dedicated access points. This would allow seamless integration and sharing of photos, music and video, but at amazing speeds - up to 500 Mbps. Sony leads the alliance of vendors, including traditional photographic equipment makers Kodak, Olympus and Canon among others, and recently showed prototypes at the 2008 Consumer Electronics Show.
