Mobile Imaging and Printing Consortium is a non-profit industry association formed to promote the usage of mobile devices with digital cameras, particularly camera phones, and the printing of photographs taken with them. The association intends to do this by standardization of the software and hardware used to communicate between mobile devices with cameras and printing devices through collaboration and the implementation of guidelines. It sees direct printing, without the usage of a computer, as highly desirable. The association was founded in 2004 Canon, Epson and Hewlett-Packard. New members include Brother Industries, Eastman Kodak, Fujifilm, Konica Minolta, Lexmark, Motorola, NEC, Olympus, Nokia, and MCCI Corporation..
