Lyra Research, the digital imaging authority (http://www.lyra.com), will present its next Webcast titled "Pictures at Hand: The Burgeoning Camera Phone Market" on Wednesday, September 13, 2006 at 2 p.m. eastern daylight time (6 p.m. or 18:00 UTC). Steve Hoffenberg, Lyra's director of consumer imaging research, will host the free Webcast. Hoffenberg will present camera phone-related forecast data, survey findings, and insightful analysis on the looming opportunities and threats created by this now ubiquitous class of handheld imaging devices. The Webcast will also include audience polls and an engaging question-and-answer segment.
Highlighting the magnitude and relevance of the upcoming Webcast’s topic, Hoffenberg says, "Consider this: By 2009, the cumulative number of camera phones shipped since the inception of the camera phone category in this millennium will exceed the total number of all film and digital cameras shipped in the entire history of photography since the 1800s. It is a mind-boggling forecast that is really shaking up all corners of the consumer imaging world. The Webcast will delve into the enormity of this ever-present consumer electronic device and discuss the implications for the whole of the consumer imaging business."
