Bluetooth Basic Imaging Profile (BIP) adopted
The Bluetooth SIG has adopted the BIP specification. The foundation of the Basic Imaging Profile is a series of constructs that enable Bluetooth devices to negotiate the size and encoding of imaging data to be exchanged.

This profile requires that all Bluetooth imaging devices be capable of receiving JPEG thumbnail images and/or providing JPEG thumbnail versions of their stored images (either by performing format conversions or by using a thumbnail image created when the image is stored).

The scenarios covered by this profile are:
  • Use of a mobile phone to send one or more images to a wristwatch. Scenarios involving imaging devices of different natures but forming a functionally equivalent combination are also enabled by this profile.
  • Use of a mobile phone to browse and retrieve the images stored on a digital still camera. These images may then be stored locally or forwarded to a third party via a PLMN network. Scenarios involving imaging devices of different natures but forming a functionally equivalent combination are also enabled by this profile.
  • Use of a PC to automatically download the content of a digital still camera as soon as the camera comes into the vicinity of the PC. Scenarios involving imaging devices of different natures but forming a functionally equivalent combination are also enabled by this profile.
  • Use of a printer to print one or more images sent from a digital still camera. Scenarios involving imaging source devices of a different nature but with equivalent functionally could also be implemented.
  • Use of a mobile phone to control the shutter of a digital still camera and immediately examine the result on the phone’s screen. In the present scenario, any other portable imaging device could play the role of the mobile phone.
  • Use of a laptop computer to send and control the display of images by a projector device. Scenarios involving imaging source devices of a different nature but equivalent functionality can also be implemented. The role of the projector could potentially be played by any device with display capability.

    There are six features associated with the Basic Imaging Profile:
  • Image Push
  • Image Pull
  • Advanced Image Printing
  • Automatic Archive
  • Remote Camera
  • Remote Display
