TransferJet, developed by Sony, allows for the transfer of files between two TransferJet enabled devices by simply touching or bringing them in close proximity. There is no complicated set-up or need for cables or the pairing of devices.

Low transmission power – higher security

The transmission power of TransferJet technology is very low. As a result, it is said to rarely create interference with other wireless devices. And because of the short transmission distance, the possibility of data theft is minimal. A user can both specify and restrict which other devices can be connected by TransferJet.
