Alereon and Spectec Debut SD CameraJet Wireless UWB Solution

Ever heard of TransferJet? That's a protocol issued by Sony, and it seems like some other company sure loved the name. Alereon and Spectec have chosen CES to announced their partnership: SD CameraJet. This name described a wireless, ultra-wideband solution for transferring and streaming HD media from mobile devices, and there seems to be a growing amount of ways to do just that.

The Spectec solution consists of the SDU-7200 Wi-Jet SD card and the SDU-7500 Wi-Jet USB dongle. Both are powered by the Alereon ECMA and ISO standard AL6000 Ultra Wideband chipset. This new solution is primarily designed to enable digital still cameras and video camcorders to quickly and easily wirelessly connect to HDTVs, PCs, digital media adapters and mass storage devices to transfer and view pictures or stream videos without removing the media.

Spectec's design includes a dual-port FLASH memory controller and SD host/device controller which allow the UWB system to access and wirelessly transmit media directly from FLASH memory without using the camera's processor. Set up sounds easy enough - simply insert the SD card into the DSC or DVC SD card slot, plug a small USB dongle in the PC or hard drive and it's ready to go.

It's sampling now to select customers, with mass production scheduled to begin next month. Hard to say what kind of price premium this will add to products, but it's definitely one that'll interest those who are looking to cut as many cables as possible.
