HCC-Embedded Releases PictBridge for USB Products
Budapest, Hungary and New York, NY - October 4, 2010 - HCC-Embedded today announced the release of PictBridge modules for HCC's Embedded USB Device and Host stacks.
PictBridge is an industry standard for direct printing. The standard has been developed by the Camera & Imaging Products Association (CIPA). It allows images to be printed directly from an image source without the use of a PC.
PictBridge over USB is implemented over PTP (Picture Transfer Protocol), which is provided by HCC as a subset of HCC’s MTP (Media Transport Protocol) class driver implementations. Both PictBridge host and device modules are available.
The PictBridge modules include an XML parser for the encoding and decoding of PictBridge protocol objects. The developer-friendly system allows users to feed all PictBridge-compliant options through standard structures without the need to understand the XML format.
Also included in HCC’s package is a file system abstraction that allows PictBridge to use images stored with any HCC file system, and is easily ported to work with other file systems.
HCC specializes in proving its products as fully tested working projects for most tool-chains and development boards.
HCC’s embedded products are designed for operation with or without an RTOS. They can be supplied in a fully integrated state, with many RTOSes, TCP/IP stacks and other embedded components.
