REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., Oct. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Lee Shupp, executive VP at Cheskin Added Value, will offer insights on how evolving consumer expectations and imaging technologies are leading to meaningful experiences in the home at the upcoming 6Sight(R) Future of Imaging Conference, to be held Nov. 18-20 at the Monterey Conference Center, in Monterey Calif. The conference will explore the transformative impact of recent and forthcoming imaging technologies on businesses, homes, and communities and will include forward-looking explorations of facial recognition, geo-imaging, ubiquitous sensors, and demonstrations of cutting-edge research.
Lee will be participating in the panel Living Room Imaging. As a trained futurist, he guides clients such as Microsoft and other global technology companies in understanding the role that people and culture play in driving innovation.
"Home entertainment is taking on new meaning as consumers gain increasing ability to customize the entertainment experience via their own content. In addition, digital social networks, growing expectations around natural user interfaces (NUIs) and the blurring of devices creates opportunities and challenges for developers and manufacturers," explains Shupp. "I'm pleased to be a part of 6Sight where leading thinkers will be exploring these topics."
"The pace of innovation in imaging technology is accelerating rapidly," said Alexis Gerard, 6Sight co-founder and Conference Chair. "In order for the industry to productize that innovation successfully, it's more important than ever to understand the human factors that drive adoption, and that have to be addressed in order to create real added value in people's lives. We're excited to have secured Lee's participation in this year's 6Sight, so that our attendees will benefit from Cheskin AV's considerable expertise in this area."
