Las Vegas, NV—Eye-Fi, a leader in wireless memory cards, announced a beta Windows desktop receiver for its Mobi card that will allow the Mobi to instantly transfer directly to the desktop, extending the simple camera-to-mobile photo and video transfer users love.
With pricing yet to be announced, Eye-Fi’s desktop receiver for Windows will be free to all customers during beta. The receiver will give Mobi users more choice in where their high-quality photos can be transferred, stored and shared. They will now have the option to transfer to mobile for on-the-go sharing or to the desktop for greater archiving and editing ability—all without wires or any delay in showing off their photos whenever and however they want.
“Our customers love the ability to snap great pictures on a camera and instantly share from a phone or tablet, and now we’re taking that experience one step further,” said Matt DiMaria, CEO of Eye-Fi. “Now we’re adding a simple, instant way to transfer to the desktop and make it easy for customers to get their photos on their computers to edit and archive.”
The Eye-Fi desktop receiver for Windows will offer the same features that Mobi customers already use, including simple setup. Once installed, users can enter the Mobi card’s unique 10-digit activation code and their Windows computer is paired. They can use the same activation code to pair with multiple desktops and mobile devices as needed. And with built-in Wi-Fi, there is no Wi-Fi network, hotspot or home Internet connection needed for pairing or transfer; Mobi transfers photos from a camera to the intended device whenever new content is detected.
In addition, Mobi works in thousands of cameras, including hundreds of Eye-Fi connected cameras that have integrated Eye-Fi technology for improved usability. And it backs up automatically; photos and videos transfer as they’re taken, so if anything happens to the camera, content is already safe on a user’s mobile or desktop.
The beta Eye-Fi desktop receiver for Windows is available for Mobi users to download now, and a beta version for Mac is coming soon. eye.fi
