Ricoh Keenai photo management system launches with smart tagging
Ricoh has announced the launch of a new photo storage and management service called Keenai. With Keenai, photographers can upload and store original resolution photos and videos, sync the content across multiple devices and share the content with others. According to Ricoh, Keenai features smart technologies that facilitate rapid image searches via smart tagging and image recognition, as well.
Once uploaded, photos and videos can be shared with others, including 360-degree panoramas. In addition to syncing across devices, Ricoh says Keenai stores content for offline access at ‘device-friendly resolutions.’ Each account allows an unlimited number of photos, including raw images, to be stored at original resolution, but only up to 300 15-minute videos can be uploaded per month.
Ricoh Keenai is available for iOS, Android, Windows Phone, macOS, and Windows, and supports direct photo and video transfers from Toshiba FlashAir and Eyefi Mobi WiFi SD cards and WiFi-enabled cameras. The service is available for $4.99-per-month or $49-per-year. The service's mobile and desktop applications are available here.

Keenai is perfect for non-technical people with lots of photos (often, on different devices) who prefer to not be locked into any one vendor's cloud services. Keenai delivers a beautiful, unified, cable-free photo sharing experience on every device. Plus, it is the only application that can transfer photos and videos directly from Wi-Fi® cameras, Eyefi Mobi, or Toshiba FlashAir™ Wi-Fi SD cards to all the latest smartphones and tablets (Android, iOS and Windows Phone).
Some of Keenai's standout features include:

Keenai's smart syncing keeps the originals safe in the cloud, and stores only device-friendly resolutions on your local device.
- Bring your adventures to life as mixed-media experiences for family and friends. Keenai provides sharing of stories as gorgeous albums that combine photos, videos and even 360° images. Albums can be privately shared with friends and family via email or shared links, and accessed via any web browser.
