TransferJet is a close-proximity wireless transfer technology developed by Sony. A consortium of companies is currently creating standards for the new technology, which allows data to be transferred at speeds of up to 560 Mbps simply by touching the transmitting device directly to the receiving device. TransferJet eliminates complex and troublesome configuration and settings typically associated with conventional wireless technology. For example, if you wish to enjoy video content residing in their smart phones on larger screens, you can simply touch their smartphone to the tablet PC and immediately enjoy playback on their tablet screen. In the near future, anyone will be able to instantly and conveniently download/transfer content anywhere. For example, rail commuters will be able to drop by a retail kiosk at any train station and simply touch their smartphone to an electronic terminal to instantly download free (ad-supported) newspapers and magazines. In the summer of 2011, the basic TransferJet specifications were approved and published as Ecma standards (ECMA-398 and ECMA-399). In the spring of 2012, the same specifications were ratified by ISO/IEC as international standards (ISO/IEC 17568 and ISO/IEC 17569).
