Eye-Fiâ€™s patented wireless technology and SanDiskâ€™s high-quality flash memory have joined together to enable photographers and filmmakers to capture, back up, organise and share photos on theÂ go.
The makers of the worldâ€™s first wireless memory card, today announced an exclusive distribution agreement with SanDisk, a global leader in flash memory storage solutions. The relationship combines Eye-Fiâ€™s strong partner ecosystem with SanDiskâ€™s broad retail presence to deliver a co-branded SDâ„¢ wireless memory card to consumers throughout EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa).
The SanDiskÂ® Eye-Fi Wireless memory card allows consumers to instantly transfer photos and videos from a camera to a nearby smartphone or tablet; when within range of Wi-FiÂ®, the files can glide seamlessly to a computer. Consumers can then organise and share the content to social media or online sites. Eye-Fi expands SanDiskâ€™s product portfolio and addresses the needs of an increasingly mobile, connected world of digital photography. Consumers who purchase the card will also receive access to Eye-Fi services such as Eye-Fi View, a cloud-based storage solution.
â€œSince 2005, weâ€™ve been building an imaging ecosystem that delivers a connected photography solution that helps people more easily view and share their digital photos, freeing images from devices and releasing them into peopleâ€™s lives. SanDisk has built wide brand awareness in the memory space and enjoys strong distribution throughout EMEA,â€ said Yuval Koren, chief executive officer and co-founder of Eye-Fi. â€œThis relationship will deliver a connected solution into more hands and more cameras faster than we could ever have imagined.â€
â€œEye-Fiâ€™s convenient wireless solution and our high-quality flash memory allow consumers to easily back up, organise and share their digital photos and videos,â€ said Pascal de Boer, vice president, retail sales, SanDisk. â€œNow consumers can capture a photo, transfer it to a nearby mobile device and share it with the world, all without ever removing the memory card from their camera.â€
The SanDisk Eye-Fi Wireless memory card comes in 4GB and 8GB capacities and features Class 4 minimum sustained write speed, 802.11n wireless performance, automatic backup, social media integration and Endless Memory. Eye-Fi continues to directly distribute its eponymous line of cards throughout the U.S. at both specialty stores and at top retailers like Best Buy, Target and WalMart, and recently increased distribution in Japan.
