Press release from the issuing company

WEYMOUTH, Mass.--Aug. 24, 2004-- InfoTrends/CAP Ventures, the leading worldwide market research and consulting firm for the digital imaging and document solutions industry, will once again host its annual international conference titled "Digital Imaging '04 - Photography at the Crossroads: Influencing a New Generation of Snapshooters." This conference will be held during October 14-15, 2004 at the Wyndham Hotel in San Jose, California. Over the past three years, this two-day signature event has become one of the most popular information-gathering forums for imaging executives from the U.S. and beyond. The highly focused and dynamic program is designed to address real-time changes in digital photography as they occur, from camera phones, digital cameras, video and TV-based solutions to home, retail, and online photo printing developments. Coming just two weeks after Photokina, this conference will synthesize the important worldwide trends in value-rich sessions headed by InfoTrends/CAP Ventures analysts and industry leaders. Sessions include forecasts, end user research, insider insights, and channel input. Kodak will be featured in the interactive keynote session, and will participate in high-level discussions on at-home, retail, and online photo printing, as well as mobile imaging and related topics. Kodak is a leader in digital photography and photofinishing, and is focused on making it easy for consumers to take, share, print, and view images. HP will provide engaging discussions in the interactive keynote and deliver valuable insights in the "at home photo printing" and "the printing implications of mobile imaging" sessions. As an industry imaging and printing leader, HP provides a compelling perspective on digital photography growth and new market opportunities in the consumer imaging and entertainment space. Sprint's participation in the keynote session and the subsequent session on camera phones brings its distinctive viewpoint as a mobile player to the discussion of the future of digital photography. As the first carrier in the U.S. to begin offering embedded camera phones, Sprint is uniquely qualified to discuss changes in this space. "InfoTrends/CAP Ventures is pleased to host these leaders and others in digital photography, photo printing, and mobile imaging, all lending their perspectives and insights," says Kristy Holch, a Group Director at InfoTrends/CAP Ventures. "Profound changes continue in this space. The networking time with colleagues and 17 information-packed sessions will help each participant benefit from this high-growth area.
