    ‘Mobile Imaging and Printing Consortium Releases its Second Set of Guidelines Covering More Use Cases and Kiosks
    SAN
    DIEGO, April 06– Mobile Imaging and Printing Consortium (MIPC), an
    industry group developing solutions and implementation guidelines for
    printing images captured with camera phones, announced the release of
    its second guidelines today. With the new version, the guidelines now
    cover significantly more connectivity transports as well as
    enhancements to the existing transports. All in all, the MIPC now
    addresses the interoperability of devices using Bluetooth, Infrared,
    Wi-Fi, Memory Cards, and USB (utilizing PictBridge). Also, the
    guidelines outline the best use cases for not only home printers but
    also kiosk printers. The new v2 guidelines are available for download
    at http://www.mobileprinting.org/developers/guidelines/guidelin es.
    Registration is required.
    “The MIPC continues to support and promote
    photo printing with additional connectivity technologies adopted by
    handset and printer vendors,” said Ramon Garrido, MIPC Chairman and
    Program Director at HP. “The organization also acknowledges the
    emergence of photo printing at retail kiosks and has expanded its
    customer use cases accordingly.”
    The consortium experienced
    acceleration in its membership growth and added a host of companies in
    mobile and imaging related industries. The new members include Avago
    Technologies; BenQ Mobile; Brother Industries, Ltd.; Konica Minolta;
    MCCI; Olympus Imaging Corporation; and Sagem Communication.
    In the
    near future, its website, http://www.mobileprinting.org/ will host a
    searchable database of products that adheres to its guidelines.
    Consumers will be able to search for matching phones or printers that
    followed the MIPC guidelines in his or her region. As its mission is to
    promote interoperability between handsets and printing devices, the
    MIPC will continue to host its plugfests, where any manufacturer of
    mobile and printing devices can test its products’ interoperability.
    The next plugfest will be held in Seoul, Korea on April 26th and 27th.
    Any company is welcome to participate in the plugfest. For more
    information or to RSVP for the next MIPC Plugfest, please visit the
    MIPC Web site at http://www.mobileprinting.org/. Inquiries may also be
    sent to admin@mobileprinting.org.
