The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) this week announced a new XML specification that is designed to allow XML to be deployed in smartphones, embedded systems and other devices.

The spec is known as the Efficient XML Interchange (EXI) standard, and it improves performance, network efficiency and power consumption of apps which use XML. EXI's compact representation of XML data is perfect for devices with limits on memory or bandwidth, as well as sensor networks, consumer electronics and automobiles.

Shigeki Shibayama is the deputy group executive of Digital Platform Technology Development at Canon. He believes EXI will enable Canon to expand the functionality of its consumer devices, stating that "Canon is very pleased by the release of W3C EXI Format 1.0 Recommendation as a standard interoperable compact form of XML. We expect EXI will enable us to provide compelling Web services on consumer devices like printers and digital cameras."
