Photo-Me International plc announced that the company will conduct market trials later this year of a new category of high-speed photo kiosk using Memjet inkjet technology. Memjet inkjet technology, developed by Silverbrook Research Pty Ltd., is being commercialized by Memjet Photo Retail Ltd. Market trials of the new inkjet photo kiosks are expected to get underway by the third quarter of 2007 at selected Photo-Me customer sites in France, and later at other customer sites in Europe, the Americas and Japan. Memjet technology is based on a page-wide inkjet print head that enables low-cost, high-speed photo printing at currently unattainable levels, according to Photo-Me and Memjet Photo Retail.

The PMA show, or Photo Marketing Association, continues its yearly tradition of maintaining a network of photo imaging as well as the experience and know-how of the industry. The PMA represents 20,000 members from over 100 countries, who are all active within the imaging industry. As a reflection of the changes in the market, the PMA organization has also changed and has become more diverse. Nowadays, the member group consists of representatives coming from photo retail, manufacturers, commercial photo labs, professional sports and news photography, in addition to small album print suppliers and photo processing centers. The PMA 2012 Trade show focuses on an industry which is heavily affected by the unstable situation of the global financial economy. However, whether the latter will also stand in the way of the innovation and product introductions, remains to be revealed by the PMA International Convention & Trade Show in Anaheim Convention Center (California, US).
