“Moving beyond the limits”

With its new title “Moving beyond the limits”, the Business Forum Imaging Cologne 2017 takes on the new photokina concept “Imaging Unlimited“. In fact, the traditional limits of the photo and imaging market are disolving: Images have become ubiquitous means of communication, while imaging technologies are an undispensible enabler of digital innovations from security, the smart home and autonomous driving right through to countless applications in robotics, production and commerce. Consumers take more pictures and videos than ever before, image quality has reached unimagined heights and Virtual Reality (VR) makes it possible to generate and experience a completely new kind of images.

The top-caliber international speakers at the Business Forum Imaging Cologne 2017 will share compelling ideas how retailers, service providers, professional photographers, video producers and manufacturers can take advantage of these dynamic developments.
