Nine leading technology companies have formed the WiMedia Alliance, a non-profit open industry forum established to develop and adopt standards-based specifications for connecting personal area and wireless multimedia devices. The founding member companies include Appairent Technologies, Eastman Kodak Co., Hewlett Packard, Motorola, Philips, Samsung Electronics, Sharp Laboratories, Time Domain, and XtremeSpectrum.

The WiMedia Alliance will establish a certification program aimed to accelerate widespread consumer adoption of "wire-free" imaging and multimedia solutions. The first activity of the organization will be based on the IEEE 802.15.3 draft standard with amendments and enhancements planned for future wireless systems such as ultra-wideband (UWB).

The WiMedia brand mark will certify the interoperability of multimedia devices that use personal area wireless technologies. The Alliance will manage the WiMedia brand and license its use to organizations whose products pass certification tests.
