The photokina congress for innovation in imaging

With exciting innovations, photokina 2018 has impressively reinforced its subtitle "Imaging Unlimited". In fact, digitization actually makes it possible to go beyond the previous limits of the visible and to capture a new kind of images.

This not only extends the possibilities of photography and video filming, but also leads to new applications for imaging technologies, which are supported by innovations such as voice control and artificial intelligence (AI). This creates new markets in areas such as security, the smart home or autonomous driving as well as new applications in robotics, industry and commerce. In more and more sectors, images have become the universal means of communication.

At the Business Forum Imaging Cologne, independent experts, imaging industry leaders, resellers, service providers and users will discuss the implications of these developments for today’s and tomorrow’s imaging business.

The Business Forum Imaging Cologne is staged by photokina in collaboration with its partners Photoindustrie-Verband PIV (German Photographic Industry Association) and GfK Retail and Technology. The event is organized by the global journal INTERNATIONAL CONTACT in cooperation with the worldwide information service Photo Imaging News, USA.
