LONDON, Jan 10, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) —
IntertechPira have announced the agenda for their 5th annual Image
Sensors conference, bringing together both legendary experts and
outstanding newcomers from the imaging world.

Taking place 20–22 March 2012, Hotel Russell, London, the conference
will present more than 20 speakers discussing the latest trends and
advances. The spectrum of applications covered includes best in class
imaging technology from healthcare, aerial, broadcast, mobile
communications, automotive, security, defence, space, astronomy and
industrial sectors.

Keynote presentations will be delivered by inventor of the CMOS imager
Dr Eric R. Fossum, the legendary Dr Nobukazu Teranishi of Panasonic,
camera guru Mats Wernersson of Sony Ericsson and NASA’s award-winning Dr
Samuel Harvey Moseley.

Dr Fossum will provide the grand keynote on the Quanta Image Sensor

speak on Dark Current and White Blemish, Mats Wernersson will discuss
trends and technologies in next generation camera phones, and Dr Moseley
will present on high performance imaging detectors for space

Also covered is photogrammetry – Udo Tempelmann, Leica Geosystems will
review aerial imaging technologies and markets. In 3D imaging,
Softkinetic’s Daniel Van Nieuwenhove will examine trends in gesture
recognition technology. Healthcare imaging is featured with
comprehensive insight into innovations in medical imaging systems, and
Olympus will be presenting on technical aspects of medical endoscopic
imaging. Also making an entrance is security – imaging experts Bosch,
Sagem and Pelco Schneider have been selected to review this market and
its vast potential.

Two directional sectors have been included in this year’s programme
which act as beacons for the rest of the imaging world to follow –
broadcast and space. Contributions will come from the BBC as well as
Japanese Broadcasting Corporation NHK.

Lindsay Grant, Imaging Division Process Manager, STMicroelectronics,
will be co-chairing the conference and expressed the following in
anticipation of the event:

“To have some of the key inventive pillars behind modern imaging
technology presenting will make this conference very special for all
those attending. IntertechPira’s Image Sensors conferences have grown
strongly in recognition and popularity over the years, and for 2012, I
expect a lively, constructive mix of strong technical presentations, QA
and business.”
