Imaging Industry Roundtable
Peck: Consumers are finding this technology fascinating and exciting all over again, as evident in the box office crowds for 3D hits such as "Avatar" and "Toy Story 3." 3D television for home use is only now penetrating the market, and it is something to keep an eye on. However, we are not currently seeing heavy demand at the consumer level for 3D technology in terms of image capture. As with any new technology, you will see a broad adoption in the professional space that will work its way down through early-adopters and ultimately to the general consumer imaging public.
We keep hearing consumers say, "Make it easier for me to make all my digital still and video files actionable and more a part of my life." Is the imaging industry responding to this demand?
Gustavson: This type of convergence is central to many of the new products hitting the market in the coming months. The technology is out there. Now it's time for retailers to work with their supplier partners to show consumers just how easy it is.
