FujifilmPMA 2006 Fujifilm Keynote from Shigetaka Komori : In a keynote address at the PMA 2006 show, Shigetaka Komori, President & CEO of Fuji Photo Film, outlined Fujifilm's vision and strategy for meeting the future needs of its imaging customers. He emphasized Fujifilm's continued pursuit of higher image quality, using both analog and digital as the technological means to that end. In addition, Mr. Komori outlined Fujifilm's mission to preserve the "culture of photography," which refers to the emotions and feelings that can be expressed through the medium of photography. He stressed the need for manufacturers and retailers to work together to provide products and services that drive the value of the photographic experience for consumers.
PMA 2006 Fujifilm Keynote from Shigetaka KomoriFujifilm - Culture of photography
"We all must give consumers a great experience when they make photographic prints," said Komori. "If we all keep this as our priority, our businesses and industry will grow, and we will keep the culture of photography alive." Fujifilm's goal is to expand the world of imaging by providing a wide range of innovative solutions - digital, analog or a fusion of technologies - that will increase the value that imaging products and services can bring to businesses and consumers alike.

Fujifilm - History of digital innovations
"We have developed and manufactured key devices that aim at new heights of image quality and form the core of digital photo functions," said Mr. Komori. "This broad technology portfolio has grown from just silver-halide to now encompass optical lens design, lasers, thin film coating, membrane, organic material design, image processing, electronics, and nanotechnology." During his speech, Mr. Komori detailed Fujifilm's history of digital innovation and breadth of technologies it has pioneered across many industries, including imaging, medical, graphic arts, and consumer electronics. He highlighted Fujifilm's introduction of the first digital camera with removable media and Frontier, the first digital minilab.

Fujifilm Frontier - Retail businesses
He pointed out that the company had to develop its own key devices such as high-speed scanners and laser exposure systems, rather than relying on off-the-shelf technologies. As a result, Frontier has become the core of the retail digital-printing infrastructure. "Frontier is the product that enabled retailers to offer all of the services that are popular now. We believe that without this development, retail businesses would have been unable to transform themselves to the digitally-based service providers that they are today."

Improving photo quality - Fujifilm Digital Cameras
According to Mr. Komori, Fujifilm's approach to expanding photography today remains to strive for high image quality by fusing silver-halide analog technologies with digital technologies. "Fujifilm has dedicated its full effort to improving the overall value of photography for the customer, from the camera to the print. The heart of the value we offer lies in improving photo quality, improving convenience and providing solutions for greater enjoyment of photography." Whether taken with film or digital cameras, Fujifilm wants its customers to enjoy the cleanest and clearest photos possible and to make prints of each one, he stressed. This theme pervades all of the company's new products and services that will be on display at PMA 2006 Show.

Fujifilm FinePix F30 - Point-and-shoot digital camera
Mr. Komori shared with the audience several of the innovations Fujifilm is featuring at the PMA show, including: the world's first consumer point-and-shoot digital camera with full resolution ISO equivalency speeds as high as 3200, incorporating Fujifilm's unique Super CCD sensor for crisp, sharp photos; the first digital kiosk to allow retailers to offer three ways for consumers to get digital prints from a single unit - instantly, in one hour, or in days; new Frontier Digital Minilabs that are smaller, yet offer increased capabilities and improved performance; and new color reversal film products to improve the image-creation power of silver-halide. He also spoke of the "culture of photography," the miraculous power, wonder and enjoyment a single photograph can convey, and Fujifilm's determination to preserve it. "Photos carry many values. For each of us, those values are very different, very special, and very personal. And when we share photos, we pass on those sentiments."
