ITP 1.2 Overview

ITP 2.0 - Make the Most of your Wireless Workflow!

Toronto, ON - October 14th, 2005 - We are happy to announce the release of ITP version 2.0! This new version brings a host of powerful new features to help users get the most out of their wireless transmitters. Powerful features like automatic image processing, image review and analysis, live slideshows and memory card synchronisation provide users with many more ways to get their work done faster and better. Additionally, a wide array of new ease of use features make setting up a wireless transmitter easier than ever!

Ease of Use

Pixagent has always strived to make the setup and use of a wireless image transmitter as simple as possible. ITP 2.0 is no exception, adding a new adapter management system that helps to configure network adapters for receiving images. This system saves the user from having to manually enter complex TCP/IP settings on the host computer. It also adds a built-in DHCP server so that your camera can automatically retrieve settings over the network.

Building on the assisted configurator subsystem in previous versions, ITP 2.0 now offers full support for the Nikon WT-1 and WT-2, Canon WFT-E1 and WiPics transmitters. In addition to simplifying the configuration process, this system removes many potential sources of errors so that users can get up and running as quickly as possible.

To further assist users, ITP 2.0 offers a new Control Centre interface that places the most commonly used options in a central location. Using a visually oriented interface users of all levels can quickly and easily administer the core functionality of this package. If necessary, more advanced dialogs are also available that provide access to many additional options that power users demand.

Professional Edition

The powerful new Professional edition of ITP 2.0 offers a number of additional workflow-oriented features including the new card synchronization system. This powerful feature allows users to seamlessly switch between wireless and wired workflows by intelligently downloading images from their memory cards. When a card is inserted into a computer, ITP 2.0 Professional will start off exactly where the wireless transmitter left off. In addition, ITP will treat these images in the same manner as if they were uploaded so that all of the other powerful features will work on all these images.

To further enhance workflow, ITP 2.0 Professional offers a new automated processing engine. When enabled, this system will automatically trigger other software to process images the moment that they are received. Using this system many repetitive and time-consuming tasks can be performed in parallel with image capture stages. When users return to their workstations, much of this work will be already done for them. As a result, photographers can spend more time behind the lens and less in front of their computers. This is a powerful feature that has the potential to make significant improvements in the workflow of many photographers.

In addition to these automation features, ITP 2.0 Professional also brings a number of powerful tools to assist photographers in the way that they work. The new live image review system will optionally display all incoming images for real time analysis. This allows studio photographers to evaluate their images with the full capabilities of their monitor moments after they are captured. In addition, clients and art directors can also provide immediate feedback without intervention by the photographer. As a result, more mistakes can be recognised on the spot, allowing photographers to correct for them faster and with less expense than ever before.

Our new live slideshow system allows event and wedding shooters using ITP 2.0 Professional with the ability to show off their work as it is being captured! As images are received by ITP, they are immediately worked into the slideshow - allowing photographers to present their work while it is being captured. Combined with a large monitor or HDTV set, this system allows guests to see the images and potentially lead to impulse sales that would have otherwise been impossible. In addition, it allows photographers to provide an extra value service to their clients to rise above the competition.

ITP 2.0 Feature Summary:

Pricing and Availability:
ITP 2.0 is being offered in both a Professional and a Standard edition. ITP 2.0 Professional provides all of the powerful features mentioned above and is a commercial product that can be purchased directly from Pixagent for only $60USD. The powerful features contained in this version of ITP provide you with all of the tools necessary to make use of all the potential that your wireless transmitter offers. To help with your evaluation, Pixagent is offering a free one month trial of these features so that you can try them in your own workflow.

The standard version of ITP 2.0 provides you with the core features necessary to get your wireless transmitter up and running. It lacks many of the workflow features of the Professional version, however it has everything you need to get a basic system up and running. Like previous versions of ITP, ITP 2.0 Standard is being offered at no charge.

Both versions are available immediately from our website. For more information and to download ITP 2.0 please visit the following website:


ITP is currently only available for Windows (98, ME, NT, 2000, XP and 2003) and PocketPC (PocketPC 2002, WM2003, WM2003SE) platforms. A Mac version is currently in the planning stages at this time, however it is still to early to provide any further information.

Background Information:
ITP 1.0 was released on October 4th, 2003 in order to provide an easy to use FTP server for users of devices like the Nikon WT-1. It was tested specifically with preproduction WT-1 devices by Nikon staff in order to be certain things would function optimally when the transmitter became available to the public. In addition to a basic FTP server, ITP offered many features that were specifically tailored to the photographic workflow allowing users to instantly organize their images right out of the camera.

This release was followed shortly by PocketITP 1.0 (October 22nd, 2003) that offered the exact same features as ITP 1.0 but on the PocketPC platform. PocketITP uses the same engine as it's bigger brother, and as such the only change is a user interface necessitated by the smaller format. This release allows Photographers to work with packages like Idruna's Pocket Phojo to wirelessly edit their take in the field without the need for a bulky laptop. In addition, it allows users in hostile situations to easily keep a second version of all of their images stored in a safe place in case something happens to the original (water, impact, overzealous security, etc...).

After assisting many people in setting up their WT-1s we discovered many issues that people were having problems with. We released ITP 1.1 in an effort to help remove many of the stumbling blocks that caused people problems - making their experience with setting up the WT-1 much easier. Our system is so effective that it has been recommended by Nikon's support divisions since it was available.

ITP 1.2 was released several months later and added support for the Canon WFT-E1 wireless transmitter. This was followed shortly by PocketITP 1.2 to bring the same support to the PocketPC platform. These versions only made minor modifications to add support for the new transmitters.

Our new ITP 2.0 products cement our strategy by providing a host of powerful new features to improve the workflow of photographers working with wireless transmitters. In addition, these new versions provide support for all currently available transmitters from Nikon, Canon and Dice America. We will continue to work on powerful new features in future versions that are already underway!
