“Digital imaging is a vital component in new consumer technology devices across multiple product categories, and it is also a powerhouse category in its own right,” said Karen Chupka, senior vice president, events and conferences, CEA. “The strength of the digital imaging category will be on display throughout the 2009 International CES with the Digital Imaging Showcase, Spotlight on Imaging and conference sessions focused on this fundamental technology market.”
Digital imaging remains an important technology segment for consumers, as total revenues from digital imaging products are forecasted to reach $6.8 billion in 2009, up from $6.5 billion in 2008.
The Digital Imaging Showcase, located in South Hall 3 at the LVCC, will be a major destination at the 2009 CES.
