Orlando, FL (PRWEB) February 28, 2006
Lyra Research, the digital imaging industry authority (http://www.lyra.com), announced the launch of its Consumer Imaging Intelligence advisory service today at the Photo Marketing Association's PMA 2006 International Convention and Trade Show. With Lyra Research's Consumer Imaging Intelligence (CII) advisory service, marketing and product managers can access unparalleled industry advice and insight, anytime and anywhere, to make critical business decisions. CII's comprehensive online competitive research tools allow clients to stay ahead of the competition in today's digital camera, camera phone, photo-printing, and online photo-service industries.
Steve Hoffenberg, director of Consumer Imaging Intelligence, explains the rationale for the newly retooled advisory service, which was formerly called the Digital Photography Advisory Service, "The ground is rapidly shifting beneath the companies in the consumer imaging space. As more consumers convert to digital photography and the devices and services to support digital imaging proliferate, the market's potential will continue to grow." Nevertheless, Hoffenberg cautions, "With a long and painful period of industry consolidation ahead, the winners will be those who strategically anticipate the market's opportunities and changes. Consumer Imaging Intelligence is the only market research advisory service that equips vendors with a 'big picture' perspective that takes into account today's mushrooming competitive landscape in its forecasts and analysis of market trends. Our goal is to arm companies with the information they need to maximize revenue and profit and—more importantly—ensure their strategic long-term viability."
