FotoNation is the developer of the PTP standard and led Camera & Imaging Products Association (CIPA) in the standardization of PTP-IP, a protocol that allows FotoNation Picture Transfer Protocol (PTP) and PictBridge (camera to printer connectivity) to transfer images and other digital media content across TCP/IP and Wi-Fi networks between digital imaging devices and services.
With PTP-IP, usage is not limited to direct connections between a digital camera and a computer or a printer; applications to multiple devices connected on a network are also expected.
This team is already active in the deployment of a new wireless communication standard, PTP-IP, which is now the basis of a number of high profile solutions.
