PRESS RELEASE: 6Sight explores augmented reality, 3D, and the future of photography
JACKSON, Mich. – The 6Sight Future of Imaging Conference announces the program for its 2010 event, November 15-17, at The Sainte Claire in San Jose, Calif. The conference will focus on the most important and innovative topics in imaging, including augmented reality, 3D cameras and printers, connected cameras, digital video, advanced output, surveillance, and smarter camera phones.
The program topics will continue to develop and change during the coming months. Visit www.6Sight.com for the latest information about the 6Sight conference.
3D cameras, printers, and big-screen TVs
What will the new 3D technology, infrastructure, and ecosystem offer companies in the imaging business?
What will be the impact of combining camera phone display, connectivity, and internet information as an augmented reality overlay of data and images of the real world?
Advances in output
How will the many new output products and services transform photographic digital printing with new revenue-generating opportunities that did not exist until very recently?
Cameras: the latest features, upcoming technology, and trends
What are the latest innovations that professionals, consumers, and prosumers will soon see in digital cameras, and will they be connected to the internet?
Smarter camera phones
Will smarter camera phones influence the development of digital cameras because of the appeal of their “always on” connectivity, open operating system (OS), and app sales?
How will video capture on still cameras, services, and displays be monetized?
“Since our first imaging conference in 2002, throughout our Mobile Imaging Summit conferences here and in Europe, and now with our 6Sight conferences, we have helped the imaging industry explore future developments and assess what impact they will have on our industry,” says Joe Byrd, 6Sight co-founder and president. “Throughout the ups and downs of our economy, we are pleased to have the continuing support of our industry, media, and analyst partners. If not for this support, we would be unable to carry on our work of bringing industry leaders together to understand and take full advantage of the developing technology and product trends. Thanks to these leaders, we know our 2010 conference will be our best one yet.”
Two other conferences are co-located at 6Sight – theI3A Annual Imaging Innovation Conference and the AIE Output Summit. The I3A conference, Nov. 17-18, is an opportunity for industry leaders to review the latest trends, learn about new technologies, and explore new avenues for innovation while exchanging knowledge and developing ideas for overcoming the obstacles ahead. The I3A conference provides attendees with an interactive, engaging environment where they can meet and exchange thoughts with leaders in the industry, and gather meaningful insights to take back to their companies.
The AIE Output Summit, Nov. 15, will take an in-depth look at the future of photographic output and the implications for imaging professionals. The top analysts in the photo and digital imaging industry will share their visions of the new landscape of digital output and present their most current data; this will be followed by a roundtable panel discussion digging into the implications behind the numbers. Leading digital printing companies will share their visions of the current market, changing behavioral patterns of customers, what new markets are emerging, and how to take advantage of all the opportunities available. The managers of the most innovative imaging facilities in the world will discuss how they have changed courses to adapt to the changes in technology and customer behavior, and where they see the next big opportunities.
6Sight welcomes comments on its program and its conference in general on its Facebook and Twitter accounts.
