IrSimple Promises a Simple Infrared Protocol for Consumer Eletronics
Posted on 26-Aug-2005 12:24 | Tags Filed under: News



The Infrared Data Association (IrDA) is introducing the the IrSimple Protocol and Profile Specifications. IrSimple enables mobile devices like Camera Phones to instantly connect and wirelessly transmit digital images to similarly enabled Televisions, Monitors, Projectors and Photo Kiosks.

The the IrDA Special Interesting Group (SIG) is being coordinated by NTT DoCoMo, Sharp, ITX E-globaledge and Waseda University, and developed the IrSimple for fast, wireless communication between mobile devices and digital home appliances. Data rates up to 16 Mbit/s (VFIR) are currently available with 100 Mbit/s (UFIR) under development.

"IrSimple is the first and only wireless protocol available today that completes this 'missing link' from a digital camera to a TV," stated Ron Brown, Executive Director of the Infrared Data Association. "IrSimple instantly connects enabled devices, eliminating the hassles found in other wireless technologies. With over 200 million IrDA-enabled mobile phones sold in 2004, IrSimple is being launched from an extremely solid base."

The IrSimple Protocol and Profile Specifications are available to IrDA Members now, with general public access being available shortly. In addition, the SIG has developed certification tests that are performed by IrDA Authorized Test Houses to ensure products meet interoperability requirements.
