Making it into common use, 4K and 8K TVs have the potential of not only improving resolution, but totally changing people’s ideas of image quality. Camera and imaging product manufacturers, which play a role in recording "memories for the future," take this evolution in ideas as a new opportunity for product development. We are confident that CP+2016 will be a good place to experience the leading edge of technology.

SpeakerKotaro Iizawa
(Photo Critic)

Since the 1960s, Japan has formed its own and distinct photo culture. It is not an exaggeration to say that the photo books published in Japan every year are top-notch in quality and quantity the world over. Mr. Iizawa will speak about the fascination of photo books, as well as the future and possibility of photo books as a culture.
