Spectec CameraJet Wireless Solution promises fast short-range transfers  
Monday, January 3, 2011 | by Rob Galbraith
Alereon and Spectec have co-announced a new Ultra-wideband wireless transmitting solution comprised of an SD memory/wireless card and companion USB dongle that allows for through-the-air transfers at up to a specified maximum of about 24MB/s over distances of up to about 6.5ft/2m.

The SDU-7200 Wi-Jet SD card goes into a camera or other compatible device, while the SDU-7500 Wi-Jet USB dongle inserts into a computer or HDTV. Together they make up the CameraJet Wireless Solution, enabling data to transfer from the SD card to the USB dongle and through to the host it's attached to.

Alereon and Spectec Announce SD CameraJet™ Wireless Ultrawideband Solution
SD and dongle faster than a wire for transferring and streaming media from mobile devices

CES, Las Vegas NV– January 3, 2011 – Alereon, Inc., the technology leader for Ultrawideband (UWB) ECMA solutions, and Spectec Computer Co. Ltd. a leading provider of SDIO solutions for mobile devices today announced the availability of the Spectec CameraJet™ Wireless Solution that brings new levels of speed and connectivity to the transfer of media from mobile devices.  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 Ultrawideband chipset.

The Spectec Wireless CameraJet™ solution is designed to allow digital still camera (DSC) and digital video camcorders (DVC) 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 innovative 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 is easy; 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.

“One of the biggest bottlenecks in our new mobile world is moving and viewing data from mobile devices,” said Eric Broockman, Alereon’s CEO. “Spectec’s innovative SD technology provides the ability to combine the on-chip FLASH controller and the SD host/device controller on a single SD card.”

“We have been looking for an ideal wireless technology to provide users with a fast and simple way to get their media from their mobile devices either to their hard drives or to their personal computers,” said S.T Joung, General Manager of Spectec.  “The Alereon solution is fast, easy to use, requires no drivers and gives us superior performance vs. WiFi. For consumers this is a great way to finally wirelessly access your media.”

The Spectec CameraJet™ solution is sampling now with production in February 2011.
See the CameraJet™ solution at CES in Spectec’s booth in the Las Vegas Convention Center South Hall 4, booth #35164 or by appointment at Alereon’s booth in South Hall 2 (#MP25155).
