CESSteven Sasson named to CE Hall of Fame : Steven Sasson, an electrical engineer at Eastman Kodak Company who invented the digital camera, has been named to the Consumer Electronics Hall of Fame. The Consumer Electronics Association created the CE Hall of Fame in 2000 to recognize the pioneers of the CE industry and has honored more then 110 industry leaders including inventors, engineers, business executives and journalists. "We are pleased to honor such distinguished individuals through election to our industry's Hall of Fame," said CEA President and CEO Gary Shapiro. "Their contributions played a key role in the products and technologies that provide enjoyment and a better and more productive life for consumers all over the world."

Sasson will join 10 other honorees who will be formally inducted at the association's annual awards dinner, held in conjunction with CEA's Industry Forum on October 14-17, 2007 in San Diego, California. In 1975 while working at Eastman Kodak Company, Sasson accepted the challenge of building a camera using solid state electronics, solid state imagers and an electronic sensor known as a charged coupled device (CCD) that gathers optical information. In 1978, he and his supervisor, Gareth A. Lloyd, were issued a US patent for the first digital camera.

Digital revolution in photography
"It is an incredible honor to be included in this group of contributors to the field of electronics, especially for something related to taking pictures," said Sasson. "The thing to remember about the digital revolution in photography is that it changed how we take pictures. The most important aspect of photography, why we take pictures, remains the same. Our memories are our most important possessions, and the job of this or any other technology is to enable us to make these vital parts of our lives easier and even more valuable."
