Bluetooth digital camera application in business solutions
Concord Camera Corp. is show casing a selection of business solutions using the Concord Eye-Q Go Wireless Bluetooth digital camera (review here), the first 2 Megapixel Bluetooth enabled digital camera.

According to the company the camera is being tested in a number of different industries for varying applications. Real Estate agent Jeff Maiger uses the Concord Eye-Q Go Wireless to take pictures of available properties and then sends the images to his PDA for easy viewing with his clients. "I put pictures of the properties I am showing on my PDA and use it as a slide show with prospective clients. This saves time and my clients really love the fact that we can preview a property while on the road," commented Jeff Maiger.

Vitronics, a MTC Technologies company, has successfully demonstrated the use of this digital camera in a prototype Wearable Computer System for the US Army. Their Linux based prototype demonstrates how a soldier can use a small, lightweight wireless camera to take pictures of people, documents, etc. and then transmit these images using Bluetooth to a small wearable computer that can store the photos or relay them to other command structures via radio link.

The Boeing Company is looking at the Concord Eye-Q Go Wireless to facilitate communication between departments. They are taking time sensitive photos to document quality non conformance on aircraft and are quickly transmitting these photos to a laptop for distribution to a number of departments.

The Concord Eye-Q Go Wireless is also packaged with a Bluetooth adaptor, which allows the user to transform their Windows based computer or laptop into a Bluetooth device. Just install the Bluetooth driver software and plug the Bluetooth adaptor into the USB port and the computer is ready to receive pictures from the Concord Eye-Q Go Wireless. No wires or cables are necessary for transmission.

The camera stores over one hundred VGA sized images in 7MB of internal memory but also has an SD/MMC card slot for additional storage. The camera also features preset scene selections for flexible picture taking and a 4x digital zoom. It offers three focus modes to ensure great pictures at any distance; macro for close-up images; portrait for group photos; and infinity for scenic views.
