Intel Joins I3A at Highest Membership Level


Wakefield, MA—The International Imaging Industry Association (I3A) announced that Intel Corporation, a leading producer of visual computing technologies, has joined the nonprofit organization as a Strategic member.

Intel will be an active member of I3A’s Mobile Imaging interest group and its Camera Phone Image Quality (CPIQ) initiative, due to its role within the visual computing continuum.

“I’m very pleased to welcome Intel as an active participant in I3A. Intel’s contributions will be especially appreciated in this key phase of our CPIQ efforts,” said Lisa Walker, I3A president. “As an innovator in the semiconductor industry, Intel’s participation will be a real asset to help drive I3A’s future direction and strategy. I look forward to gaining the insights Intel will bring to our board of directors.”

I3A interest groups map to the markets and technology that are of interest to specific groups of I3A members, and interest group initiatives enable the rapid development of consortium standards and other programs, delivering quick solutions to the market that are unavailable through other processes. The Mobile Imaging interest group was created to maximize the usability and performance of mobile images and to overcome any barriers created by combining image capture with mobile capabilities.

Within the Mobile Imaging interest group, I3A’s CPIQ initiative is developing a standardized means of measuring and communicating image quality by producing a set of image-quality testing metrics and methodologies. The result will be a rating system that consumers can quickly and easily understand to aid in the selection of cameraphones.

I3A members are drawn from all sectors of the imaging ecosystem, and they include many household-name multinationals as well as small innovative technology companies.
