Alereon, the ultrawideband (UWB) technology leader for mobile WiMedia and solutions based on Certified Wireless USB, is partnering with leading digital camera vendors to demonstrate exciting new Wireless USB (WUSB) applications for the digital photography market. Through these collaborations, Alereon is able to demonstrate the swift, wireless transmission of digital photos from a digital camera to a personal computer, camera-to-printer, camera-to-camera and more. Alereon, with its Wireless-on-the-Go solution, is the only UWB company offering embedded device-to-device connectivity via Certified Wireless USB from the USB-Implementers.

Wireless-on-the-Go enables users to wirelessly connect two handheld devices, such as digital cameras or camera phones, to swap data files over a short distance without eating up large chunks of battery life. Alereon's solutions are ideal because they do use limited SoC processing power and they work in conjunction with almost any operating system, including NetBSD for printers, microITRON for cameras, Windows Mobile 5 for phones and Embedded Linux for HDTVs.

The PMA show, or Photo Marketing Association, continues its yearly tradition of maintaining a network of photo imaging as well as the experience and know-how of the industry. The PMA represents 20,000 members from over 100 countries, who are all active within the imaging industry. As a reflection of the changes in the market, the PMA organization has also changed and has become more diverse. Nowadays, the member group consists of representatives coming from photo retail, manufacturers, commercial photo labs, professional sports and news photography, in addition to small album print suppliers and photo processing centers. The PMA 2012 Trade show focuses on an industry which is heavily affected by the unstable situation of the global financial economy. However, whether the latter will also stand in the way of the innovation and product introductions, remains to be revealed by the PMA International Convention & Trade Show in Anaheim Convention Center (California, US).
