KodakEverplay standard : Eastman Kodak Company, Fuji Photo Film and Konica Minolta Photo Imaging, founding members of the former Picture Archiving and Sharing Standard (PASS), today announced the Everplay standard designed to ensure compatibility of digital photos and motion images across a broad range of consumer products for future generations. Methods to organize and preserve digital images have evolved independently by many different companies and have lost interoperability among the different systems. There are also potential problems as time passes, systems evolve and formats change. The new Everplay standard aims to resolve these issues and respond to consumers’ need to protect images and enjoy widespread interoperability.
Everplay standard replaces PASSEverplay standard - Licensing program
The standard is designed to make it easy to implement and uses XML next-generation language in its specification. Kodak, Fujifilm and Konica Minolta will begin a free license program imme-diately and call for the adoption of the Everplay standard by all consumer digital imaging companies. The goal for products and services is to use images interchangeably and movies ubiquitously while at the same time, acknowledge the value for protecting consumers’ images.

Everplay standard - Royalty-free license
By signing the licensing agreement, which is available on the Web site, any company can acquire a royalty-free license to execute the specification, use the trademarks and obtain rights to the patents owned by the Everplay founders. Further, the following tools will be provided at no cost: Software development kit (SDK) v1.10 and Verifying tool v1.10. In concurrence with the completion of the standard, the new name “Everplay” replaces “PASS” and shall be used as an interchangeable name for the specification and related communication. A trademark, "Everplay," and associated logo have been registered to help with future identification of products and services compliant to the standard.

About Everplay
Everplay contains a set of standards for the consumer imaging and electronics industry, aimed to provide products that are designed to satisfy consumers desire to protect their image assets for generations and provide interoperability across a variety of devices. Since Photokina 2004, when its formation was announced, the Everplay founders have worked to define the standard, which was initially called the Picture Archiving and Sharing Standard, abbreviated as "PASS" at that time. In concurrence with the completion of the PASS standard and the start of licensing, the new name "Everplay" shall be used as an interchangeable name for the spec. The Everplay standard has defined the rules for preserving photographic images and associated meta data, so that they can be reproduced and enjoyed even through the transition to future storage media and technologies. Everplay enables evolution of an individual company's system/products while at the same time sustaining interoperability and preserving the photographic images.
