Jackson, MI—Gary Shapiro, president and CEO of the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) and author of the New York Times best-selling book, The Comeback: How Innovation Will Restore the American Dream, will deliver the keynote address at the 6Sight Future of Imaging Conference, on June 26, at 9 a.m. 6Sight will lead off CE Week on June 25-26, 2012, at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York City.
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, held annually in Las Vegas.
“There is so much innovation taking place in the imaging industry today from connected cameras to 41 megapixel smartphone 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 conference is part of 2012 CE Week, a five-day citywide event that includes the CEA Line Shows and Digital Downtown Conference. It is organized in association with CEA, along with Martin Porter Associates, Photo Industry Reporter, and Consumer Technology Publishing Group/NAPCO, publisher of Dealerscope, Custom Retailer and E-Gear magazines.
