Steve Sasson: Disruptive Innovation: The Story of the First Digital Camera
Monday, 10 September 2012, 6.30pm for 7pm at the Science Museum, Fellows Room, Exhibition Road, London, SW7 2DD
Steve Sasson is credited with inventing the digital camera creating the first digital camera prototype in 1975 for the Eastman Kodak Company. In an illustrated and entertaining lecture Steve will be discussing how the concept was demonstrated within Kodak, subsequent technical innovations with megapixel imagers, image compression products in the mid-1980s, and the early commercialization of professional and consumer digital still cameras in the early 1990s. The internal reaction to these developments will be highlighted as well as some of the learned observations about how to deal with disruptive innovation within an established corporate environment will be shared.
This is the first time Steve has spoken about his work in public in the United Kingdom.
The lecture continues The Society’s Hurter & Driffield Memorial Lecture series which began in 1918.
