Las Vegas, NV—Ricoh Innovations Corp. launched Keenai, a smart photo-management service designed to keep digital memories safe and organized. Ricoh Innovations Corp. is a Silicon Valley subsidiary of Ricoh.
The service is vailable in eight languages on all popular platforms for phones as well as desktop PCs. It connects all a user’s devices and cameras to unify all the photos and also videos for viewing and sharing on any device.
“Consumers are struggling to keep track of all the photos and videos they capture using the different devices they own. Keenai provides a smart solution to this problem. And it is designed so that nontechnical people can gain control of all their photos, share them with friends and family, and feel confident that their memories are safe,” said Toshinori Arita, senior vice president, Ricoh Innovations Corp.
The app delivers a cable-free photo-sharing experience on every device. And it can transfer photos and videos directly from Wi-Fi cameras as well as Eyefi Mobi or Toshiba FlashAir Wi-Fi SD cards to the latest smartphones and tablets (Android, iOS, Windows Phone). The app provides automatic cloud backup of unlimited, original-resolution photos and videos. Users can store an unlimited number of original photos and 300 15-minute videos per month in the service. RAW photos are also able to be stored. Smart syncing keeps the originals safe in the cloud and stores only device-friendly resolutions on users’ local devices.
