The Imaging Innovators Opportunity
While many industry thought leaders, writers, and analysts have offered market assessments and predictions for the future of wearable tech, few have paid much attention to the role that imaging will play as these devices evolve.
As a global leader in imaging market research and strategic consulting, InfoTrends has been tracking the evolution of “intelligent imaging” for a number of years. “Intelligent images” combine existing information from the captured image with additional or new information to create images with greater utility. Images are playing an increasingly important role in the life of most connected and wearable devices. Cameras and sensors gather information on the world around us constantly, and we are learning to interpret and interact with that information every day. Imaging plays a fundamental role in visualization technology such as augmented reality and is already taking hold in the world of mobile gaming. We expect to see a mass of innovation in the wearables market, where cameras will be a cornerstone in the development of new technologies and new applications. Only those with tremendous foresight could possibly predict the many ways that imaging innovations will impact our lives in the future.
Along with these imaging opportunities come possible barriers for vendors. Not only do they need to develop smart devices, but also smart applications. They need appealing form factors. They need to address safety and privacy, consider interoperability, address the always-present power consumption issue, contemplate the impact of high resolution content on bandwidth and communication, and much more.
To help vendors address these opportunities and challenges, InfoTrends’ team of imaging analysts is pleased to offer the “Imaging Innovators Service.” This new year-round vendor advisory service provides technology companies with a partner who can monitor industry developments and consider how it impacts business strategy.
