A term used to define the transfer of images from one device to another, without the use of cords (wirelessly). This may be as complex as capturing and recording video through wireless security camera systems or even sending images from one smartphone to another, or sending images from a digital camera to a printer. Wireless Imaging is supported by wireless communication standards such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or IrDA.
Wireless imaging is a technology that also applies to the latest generation of consumer digital cameras. Wireless-enabled digital cameras and devices supports wireless communications cards and Internet protocols to enable users to send photos to anyone, anywhere, at the point of capture.
