Sharpcast, Inc., a pioneer in personal media synchronization and management, today released Sharpcast Photos Beta, an solution that delivers the absolute simplest way to share, sync, back up and access digital photos from anywhere. Sharpcast Photos keeps PCs, the web and mobile phones automatically in sync, so people can view their photo collection from any time and anywhere they want, whether they are online or off. Current Sharpcast Photos Alpha users can upgrade. Sharpcast Photos eliminates the complexities of accessing, sharing and backing up photos by keeping a person’s desktop photo collection automatically synced with the web, other PCs and optionally with a mobile phone.

Gibu Thomas about Online photo sharing and synchronization
"Sharpcast is pioneering the concept of applying synchronization as the single answer to several problems - managing multiple photo collections on PCs and the web, tedious web uploads and downloads, sharing and protecting photos, getting photos off your mobile phone, and accessing photos remotely," said Gibu Thomas, founder and chief executive officer of Sharpcast. "Sharpcast Photos is based on the premise that sync works best when it's completely transparent and you don't have to think about it." Sharpcast Photos Beta includes several significant desktop and web improvements to the former Alpha version, including overall performance and usability improvements, user interface enhancements and more advanced sharing and management features.

Sharpcast Photos mobile edition
The company today also released the Alpha version of the Sharpcast Photos mobile edition, optimized in the U.S. for the Motorola Q, the Palm Treo 700w, the Sprint PPC-6700 and the Verizon XV 6700. The Sharpcast Photos mobile edition Alpha seamlessly synchronizes photos between mobile phones, PCs and the web without relying on a mobile web browser, effortlessly sending pictures taken on the phone back to the PC and the web and automatically and elegantly displaying a person's desktop collection on their phone. Any change made anywhere - on the phone, PC or web, is automatically made everywhere else.

Sharpcast Photos - Digital Photo management
Sharpcast plans to deliver a client for other Windows Mobile 5.0 products later this summer, and expects to announce plans for more mainstream mobile phones by the end of this year. Other non-U.S. versions of the above-listed smartphones can run the Sharpcast Photos mobile client, but the company is initially supporting these U.S. versions. Thomas added, "This beta release introduces a brand new category of all-in-one instant synchronization solutions for simplifying the management of digital photos. We will announce solutions supporting more media types later this year."

Photo viewing software Sharpcast Photos - Technology
Several major industry organizations have recently noted the significance of the user experience created by Sharpcast's universal instant synchronization platform. In February of this year, the company was chosen among over 700 applicants to demonstrate its technology at Demo, the industry's premier event for launching new products and technology. In April, Red Herring chose Sharpcast as one of the Red Herring 100 for 2006; its annual list of companies providing the most significant innovations to the hi-tech industry.
