Thanks to the combined effects of an
unprecedented surge in sales of image
capture devices, the Internet, and wireless telecommunications, average
people are being empowered for the first time in history to communicate with
each other using images as readily and easily as they do using words.
This "Connected Imaging Revolution" is the theme for Future Image's
inaugural 6Sight conference, scheduled for October 25 in Monterey CA, and
co-hosted by the International Imaging Industry Association (I3A). The
annual event will bring together technologists, marketers, futurists,
artists, educators, high-volume users and members of the media for a program
emphasizing innovative use cases, breakthrough technologies, and creativity.
Connected Imaging is among the key trends to emerge in recent years at the
intersection of technology development and social evolution, as reported in
the ground-breaking book Going Visual -- co-authored by Future Image
founder Alexis Gerard, and AVA Mobile founder Bob Goldstein.
"Industry conferences are typically all about features, specifications, and
market statistics. Instead, 6Sight focuses primarily on impact to people's
everyday lives," said Gerard. "The term Connected Imaging communicates value
to users. It's about the myriad ways we can be enriched by imaging tools
that help people connect more effectively with each other - whether for
work, personal, or community purposes. It's about being more informed, more
productive and more in touch. And the 6Sight conference is also about first
looks at exciting new imaging technologies that will expand our horizons."
