Gary Shapiro to keynote 6Sight Future of Imaging Conference

Shapiro will speak about innovation in the imaging industry. CEA, a U.S. trade association representing more than 2,000 consumer electronics companies, owns and produces the continent’s largest annual tradeshow, the International CES.

“There is so much innovation taking place in the imaging industry today from connected cameras to 41-megapixel smart phone cameras and mirrorless cameras,” says Joe Byrd, President, 6Sight Conferences. “We’re compelled to dedicate this year’s conference to imaging innovation. When I read Gary’s book, I knew that there was no better person to speak on innovation than this best-selling author who has been an important part of many of the consumer electronics innovations we have today.”

The 6Sight conference program will also focus on major growth opportunities and top trends in the imaging ecosystem including connected imaging devices, image sharing, mobile apps, smart imaging technology such as GPS and facial or scene recognition, sensors and processors, optics, and displays.

The 6Sight conference will be part of 2012 CE Week, a five-day citywide event including CEA Line Shows and Digital Downtown Conference, organized in association with CEA, along with Martin Porter Associates and Consumer Technology Publishing Group/NAPCO, publisher of Dealerscope, Photo Industry Reporter, Custom Retailer and E-Gear magazines.

This 6Sight Future of Imaging Conference is co-hosted by Invest in Skåne, and mobile imaging developer Scalado and supported by CEA and PMA.
