Lead by original developer Sony (which featured prototypes in its booth at CES), the TransferJet consortium's goals for the new standard are "Simple Operation" (transfer files just by touching two devices together), "Safe Connection" a 3cm transmission distance minimizes data security risk), and "Efficient Transfer" (sustained high-speed transmission rate of 375Mbps; 560Mbps theoretical).

A press release issued from Tokyo today announced the consortium members as well as the TransferJet Consortium website that went live today.
