Photo-Imaging Shows and Conferences : 2012 6Sight Preview
The Future of Imaging Goes on Display during CE Week in New YorkJune 2012 By Michael McEnaney
Help is indeed at hand, and the Big Apple is the place to find it during the last week in June, as the 6Sight Future of Imaging Conference colocates with CE Week at New York’s Metropolitan Pavilion, June 25-26. Attendees can expect two extremely informative days of presentations, discussions and product demos that promise to bring the industry’s cloudy future into much clearer focus.
“The 2012 6Sight Future of Imaging Conference program is organized into a series of sessions that present an overview of a particular subject and offer a variety of views on that topic. Often, this includes a 10-minute showcase of a new technology by its developer as well as a panel discussion and an overview presentation,” explained 6Sight cofounder and president, Joe Byrd.
That blueprint has worked to perfection for this event over the last decade as exhibitors, speakers and attendees focused on advancing all segments of the imaging ecosystem through sharing technological breakthroughs and networking with potential partners and clients.
This year, that setup will include an opening report from 6Sight’s Paul Worthington and Tony Henning on the morning of June 25 that will examine the top trends expected to affect the industry and the impact they’ll have over the next several years. Among the trends expected to be discussed are connected imaging devices, image sharing, mobile apps, smart imaging (facial and scene recognition, GPS, etc.), sensors and processors, optics and displays.
Additional presentations set for the show’s opening day include Mobile Imaging Market Trends hosted by MobileTrax’s J. Gerry Purdy, Ph.D., and a look at the Evolution of Photo Services hosted by Gary Pageau.
Day two (June 26) is highlighted by Gary Shapiro’s keynote, as new innovation in the imaging industry will be the main focus of the CEA president’s speech. 6Sight’s Worthington will also host a discussion on the amazing world of Imaging Apps as well as a panel discussion later in the day on Social Imaging.
