PMA 2010 Report
Durst Image Technology USA introduced a "total imaging solution" built around the company's highly regarded Theta 76 "Large-Format Minilabs." It features the new Durst ThetaWeb - a comprehensive, fully automatic online ordering program - as well as a built-in densitometer, and an on-board spectrophotometer that creates "self-made" ICC profiles. This solution is on display at the PMA in Las Vegas, Nevada. "Durst has developed a reputation for providing regular upgrades to its imaging systems, in order to protect and extend our customers' capital investments, and expand their capabilities as their operations expand," said A. Ron Waters, President and CEO of Durst, USA.
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).
