KM, Fuji and Kodak spin EVERPLAY
In a surprising move, Konica-Minolta has sprung back from an early grave with a joint announcement, along with partners Fujifilm and Kodak, that attempts to push a new industry standard called EVERPLAY.
Based on a previous specification called PASS (Picture Archiving and Sharing Standard), the standard will create an interchangable overlay onto digital photos that builds both index file and album file information into the photos via XML. Like many other industry specification projects, it remains to be seen how well EVERPLAY will be received.
