Hollywood meets Silicon Valley: Next week at Stanford for ETIA 2014

HomeAgain this year, entertainment and technology co-mingle at ETIA (Entertainment Technology in the Internet Age) for two days on the Stanford Campus. Co-sponsored by Stanford’s SCIEN (Stanford Center Image systems Engineering) and SMPTE (Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers), the conference brings together business and tech leaders who are delivering the entertainment of tomorrow over the Internet.

Looking at the future of cameras & photography

I’m not going to pretend that I have a crystal ball, but I do spend a lot of time thinking about trends in the market for cameras and in photo technology. I was lucky enough to be able to share my thoughts with a group of imaging industry folks and Stanford faculty and students as part of Stanford’s SCIEN program. The video of the talk is only available to their corporate sponsors, but for those who’d like to get the highlights, here are the slides I used.

Introducing Lytro: Will it make your camera a dinosaur?

The Lytro will come in three colors, and a choice of 8GB or 16GB of built-in memoryAlmost everyone agrees that the first consumer light field camera -- launched by start-up Lytro this week -- is as revolutionary as Foveon's launch of a true 3-color camera. If it lives up to the expectations of its founder and investors it is the future of cameras and will make the current models essentially obsolete. Light field technology is amazing, just like Foveon's, but it also has plenty of issues that remain to be ironed out. We'll give you the low-down on the technology, the new camera, and the issues… Read more »

DPS 7-07: The Future of Imaging--Camera 2.0, Beyond HDR & more--Event Update & Product News

  Welcome to DPS 7-07. We hope you had a great summer. We sure did, highlighted by our July trips to Alaska for Brown Bear photography. Next year's trips are already mostly full so if you'd like to join us please sign up soon. Closer to home we've also announced our two Texas bird photo safaris for April and we still have one opening on our African "trip of a lifetime" photo safari in November. In the meantime I had a great time speaking at a symposium on High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging at Stanford which has given me lots of new energy to re-capture many local scenes using new techniques.
