The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) formed a Digital Imaging Division for companies with interests in the digital imaging category. To date, digital imaging was represented within CEA as a special interest group (SIG) formed in May 2004 with 17 founding members.
The digital imaging division of CEA will serve as a home for members who manufacture, distribute or sell digital imaging products and services. The division's mission is to support the growth and profitability of the digital imaging industry by fostering industry dialogue, educational programs, unified messaging and technical standards development.
"Digital imaging is one of the fastest growing and most ubiquitous product categories in consumer electronics today," said Michael McDougall, chair of the new CEA Digital Imaging Division and director, product & services, worldwide public relations, Eastman Kodak Company. "This division will be taking on a host of issues and projects in the next few years as digital imaging continues to converge with almost every consumer electronics category represented by CEA."
As chairman, McDougall will represent the division on CEA's Board of Industry Leaders. In addition to McDougall, members of the Digital Imaging Board include: Matthew Chilton, product marketing manager, Datacolor; Charlotte Christou, CEO, Digital Frames Inc.; Kanika Ferrell, marketing manager digital camera solutions, Texas Instruments Inc.; Richard Glomb, vice president, business development, Lucidiom Inc.; Scott Nelson, director of product development, Casio Inc.; Grant Russell, president, Green-Clean USA; and Heather Mackenzie, vice president and client services, Siberra.
