DropIntegration architecture, and FotoNation's PTP technology, to deliver a small form-fit, in-camera module that communicates over the air with a Wireless USB dongle connected to a PC. The in-camera module requires minimal changes to current camera architectures for ease of integration by the manufacturer. The embedded Wireless USB camera provides data transfer rates of up to 480 Mbps, high quality of service, and a much lower power consumption than current wireless solutions. The companies are demonstrating the technology on pocket-size cameras produced by several leading manufacturers such as the Casio Exilim EX-S500 pocket-size camera.

Faster transfer rates demanded by digital and video camera users
Eran Steinberg, FotoNation's CEO, commented, "Digital and video camera users have become particularly savvy over the past decade and want faster and faster transfer rates from their cameras to their computers. Moreover, they want transfers to take place in real time and without the need for cables. As Wisair has demonstrated that it is a forerunner in the UWB space, we are excited about our collaboration. We look forward to working with Slyde and Wisair to take our efforts beyond the demonstration stage and into the mainstream market."

Wireless USB solution - Exchange and share data
Guy Sella, Slyde CEO elaborated, "One of the issues today with most consumer electronic devices such as digital cameras, video camcorders, displays, computers and cellular phones is their limited ability to exchange and share data in a seamless, easy, and intuitive way for end users. Wireless USB is one method which together with other man-machine interfaces will take the usability and data sharing experience to new levels."

Wireless USB solution for video- and digital cameras
Amir Freund, VP Marketing at Wisair noted, "There is no doubt that Wireless USB characteristics of high data rates, low cost, and above all - low power consumption - perfectly fit the requirements of the digital still camera (DSC) market for wireless connectivity. The collaboration with Slide and FotoNation clearly demonstrates how end users will soon be leveraging our Certified Wireless USB technology in a broad range of portable devices, including digital and video cameras."
