Press release [Monday 23 July 2012]
Imagination Technologies, a leading multimedia technologies company, has achieved Wi-Fi Direct certification for its Ensigma UCCP IP Reference Platform. Wi-Fi Direct is a certification mark for devices supporting a technology that enables Wi-Fi devices to connect directly, making it simple to do things like print, share, synch and play without joining a traditional home, office or hotspot network.
Imagination's Ensigma UCCP IP platforms are a unique range of low-power solutions enabling the reception of a wide range of analogue and digital TV, mobile TV, and digital and analogue radio broadcast standards, as well as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity standards, on a single device.
With Wi-Fi Direct, mobile phones, cameras, printers, PCs, and gaming devices can now connect to each other directly to transfer content and share applications quickly and easily. Devices can make a one-to-one connection, or a group of several devices can connect simultaneously. Connecting Wi-Fi Direct-certified devices is easy and simple, in many cases only requiring the push of a button. Moreover, all Wi-Fi Direct connections are protected by WPA2, the latest Wi-Fi security technology. With Wi-Fi Direct, users do not need an access point or internet connection - their personal Wi-Fi network goes with them wherever they go.
Ensigma Series3 Wi-Fi capabilities include: 802.11a/b/g/n + MIMO (Multiple-Input and Multiple-Output), plus Bluetooth v3.0.By incorporating the latest wireless communication technology on its Ensigma Series3 platforms, Imagination is able to offer significantly increased data throughput, sensitivity, and other key performance metrics, while limiting bandwidth requirements and lowering transmit power.
