From Eye-Fi: MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., December 10, 2013
— Eye-Fi, the global leader in wireless memory cards, is announcing a beta Windows desktop receiver for the Mobi card. The Eye-Fi Mobi card will now 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 new desktop receiver for Windows will be free to all customers during beta and gives Mobi users more choice in where their high-quality photos can be transferred, stored and shared. Mobi users 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 the hassle of wires or any delay in showing off their best 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, reliable features that Mobi customers already use and love, including:
- Simple setup: Once installed, simply enter the Mobi card's unique 10-digit activation code, and your Windows computer is paired. Use the same activation code to pair with multiple desktops and mobile devices as needed.
- Transfer anywhere: Built-in WiFi means no WiFi network, hotspot or home Internet connection needed for pairing or transfer; Mobi transfers photos from a camera to the intended device anywhere, whenever new content is detected.
- Works with cameras users already know (and love): Mobi works in thousands of cameras, including hundreds of Eye-Fi connected cameras that have integrated Eye-Fi technology for improved usability.
- Backs up automatically: Photos and videos transfer as they're taken, so if anything happens to the camera, content is already safe on your 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.
