“Creating new realities”

With its new title “Creating new realities”, the Business Forum Imaging Cologne 2018 will focus on the dramatic expansion of the imaging market.

Cameras with advanced functions, specialized capturing devices and revolutionary processing technologies such as computer generated imaging (CGI) and artificial intelligence (AI) enable consumers and pros to create fascinating imagery. Complemented by other digital media, visual content can now be presented and experienced in completely new ways. Due to the ubiquitous connectivity, people can turn their photos and videos into fascinating physical and digital picture products and can even explore new dimensions of visual communications with Virtual, Mixed and Augmented Reality.

The top-caliber international speakers at the Business Forum Imaging Cologne 2018 will share compelling ideas how retailers, service providers, professional photographers, producers of visual content and manufacturers can take advantage of these dynamic developments.
