Future Image Announces the Mobile Imaging Report Service

Updated Market Research Service Covers Rapidly Emerging Industry

San Mateo, CA USA — August 11, 2004 — Today Future Image, Inc. announced the launch of the Mobile Imaging Report service (MIR), a set of resources that covers the exploding camera-phone industry with in-depth news, market research and personal consultation. This is an update to its continuous information service previously known as the Future Image WIRE.

MIR is the latest research service from Future Image, Inc., the world's leader in market research, conferences and consultation regarding digital imaging.

Designed for executives and product managers in the wireless communications, digital imaging and associated industries, the MIR service provides a weekly collection of news stories and analysis, a database of over 3,500 archived articles, six in-depth reports each year on key issues in the industry, and private consultation with MIR's editor and lead analyst, Tony Henning. 

Mr. Henning has 35 years of experience in visual communication — 20 years as a successful commercial photographer, 10 years as a developer of visual asset management software, and five years as an analyst and consultant with Future Image. His 2001 report “Wireless Imaging – Overcoming the Challenges” identified and defined the new industry – long before it became a global phenomenon. His 2002 report “The Camera-phone Phenomenon” was first to point out that camera-phones were about to become the most widely-used image capture devices in history.

"Today's mobile imaging executives are finding it increasingly difficult to keep up with developments in this rapidly-changing field," said Mr. Henning. "Our sources are varied and often unique, including translated newswires, articles, and market research from sources in Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and Scandinavia, and conversations with our network of colleagues – analysts, investors, and executives at the key companies in the field"

The MIR covers companies and products at the forefront of the industry, as well as announcements and research activities that point to significant developments and trends, even though they might be "below the radar" of most executives. Companies covered include well-known leaders like Nokia, Motorola, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, Intel, Micron, OmniVision, LightSurf, OpenWave, HP, IBM, Philips, Symbian, Microsoft, PalmSource, Sprint, DoCoMo, and Vodafone as well as up-and-coming firms like DO Labs, Scalado, Bellamax, SMI, Sozotek, Varioptic, and 1 Limited.

Subscription prices range from $3,500 to $12,500 per year. Details are available at the web site http://www.mobileimagingreport.com or by contacting Joe Byrd via [email protected].

Mobile Imaging Summit

Future Image also produces limited-attendance executive conferences for decision makers designed to bring key mobile imaging industry leaders together to discuss topics relevant to the advancement of the industry in a setting that is conducive to non-interrupted networking. The content, venue, and amenities are carefully designed to maximize opportunities for participants to identify areas of mutual business advantage, and to make the high-level connections necessary for market leadership and competitive advantage. Sessions are conducted in an interactive format that promotes exchanges among participants both onstage and off.
