Arlington, Va. - Digital imaging hardware and software will receive a major focus during the 2010 International CES, which will return to Las Vegas Jan. 7-10.
Produced by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), CES will provide a Digital Imaging Showcase that will feature more than 37,000 square feet of exhibit space, with more than 60 exhibitors in South Hall 3 of the Las Vegas Convention Center. The exhibit area will feature all aspects of the imaging product category, including cameras and capture devices, storage, software, printers, kiosks, bags and accessories, CEA said.
"Digital imaging connects consumers and their memories across multiple product categories," said Karen Chupka, events and conferences senior VP, CEA. "With consumers looking to improve the quality of their digital libraries, the Digital Imaging Showcase at this year's CES will be bigger than ever before, as innovative companies exhibit their latest products."
Digital imaging - and high-quality digital cameras in particular - remain a central focus for consumers, as household penetration of digital cameras reaches nearly 80 percent and shipments of digital cameras featuring more than 10 megapixels are projected to increase by 237 percent in 2009. Shipments of digital cameras will generate $6 billion in sales in 2009, with more than 30.5 million units sold, according to CEA.
Top imaging companies will be featured at the 2010 CES, such as ATP, Kodak, Iomega, Tiffen, Wacom and Wynit. Other major imaging companies exhibiting at the 2010 CES include Canon, Casio, Fuji, JVC, Lowepro, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, Samsung and Sony.
