FotoNation wins Chip Shop Award 2006Wireless photography technology
FotoNation recently introduced its wireless Connected Photography tech-nology, providing the ability to take photos from a wireless-enabled digital camera and then immediately wirelessly transfer these images to a kiosk or other device for saving and printing. CIPA (Japanese Camera & Imaging Products Association); camera manufacturers, such as Canon and Kodak; and Microsoft have all adopted FotoNation’s wireless connectivity standard, known as PTP/IP (Picture transfer Protocol over Internet Protocol Networks).

FotoNation - Innovative digital imaging technologies
Additional up and coming new products from FotoNation include innovative digital imaging technologies demonstrated at PMA 2006, such as “Face Tracker,” an advanced face tracking algorithm embedded in a digital camera’s firmware that uses a radically new approach to identify and lock onto human faces in the camera’s preview image, tracking them as they move around within the frame to provide optimum focus, exposure and skin tones. Other FotoNation technologies include the world’s first built-in camera module based on UWB (for which FotoNation won the 2006 DIMA Innovative Product Award); and technologies for in-camera Red-Eye Removal (winner of the coveted 2006 European IST prize) and Dust Removal.

John Henshall’s Chip Shop award
“FotoNation richly deserves this award for its years of innovative technology that have benefited the digital photographic industry as a whole,” said John Henshall. “Over the past three years, I have witnessed FotoNation’s quite tremendous impact on the evolution of the digital photography industry.” “FotoNation is honored that it has been chosen to receive John Henshall’s Chip Shop Award 2006 for its innovative technology designed to empower the digital photography industry, especially as John Henshall’s Chip Shop is recognized as one of the worlds most authoritative and longest running columns in digital imaging, ” said Eran Steinberg, CEO, FotoNation.
