Bogen Imaging is proud to announce a new education program entitled Bogen Café,
www.bogencafe.com. The Café is a workshop environment offered to college
students that explores imaging topics in actual situations that are rarely discovered
within the confines of a classroom.



To kick-off each workshop there will be an evening lecture that showcases the
work of Steven Katzman, a self-taught photographer, author, and professor of photography
at Ringling College of Art and Design (RCAD), Sarasota, FL, one of the top four-year
accredited art schools in the country. This highly motivational lecture will be
open to the entire student body and the local photographic community. The next
day will be comprised of two workshop courses that have been selected by the college
and is open only to the student body. The workshop will be followed up the next
day with a program at a participating photographic dealer.



The Bogen Café is a program that will highlight a special selection of
products from Bogen and the program's sponsors through a menu of scheduled
workshop presentations. The daylong workshops emphasize the importance of developing
alliances with companies that are defined by their products and customer relationships.
The co-sponsors include Hewlett-Packard Company, Hahnemuhle USA, Datacolor, Lensbabies,
Adobe, Wacom Technology, and Rangefinder.



Katzman is a living example that corporate sponsorships can enable someone to
remain at the forefront of digital technology. His workshops at RCAD have had
fruitful results for the faculty, students and the photo department's digital
imaging workflow. Katzman's first hand knowledge, expertise, and examples
are valuable assets for this new program. Never losing sight that the journey
is more important than the destination, Bogen Imaging and its co-sponsors are
there to provide the photographer with the tools that enable them to concentrate
on their creative vision, while Katzman provides first hand experience and examples
of his personal photographic journey.



Institutions and their students are at a point where they need to develop an alliance
with companies that are defined by their products and customer relationships.
Katzman believes that the relationship can continue to be developed, creating
new markets in the educational environments, perpetuated by associated resellers
and their customer base. With educational workshops at the site of the institutions/resellers,
such a relationship will be further strengthened and solidified, enabling students
to become users of the Café's sponsors' products throughout
their professional careers.



The Bogen Café intends to target 20 colleges and 20 dealerships per year
for the next four years, beginning August 2007. Anticipating a reach of hundreds
of photographers at each location, participating schools will be able to select
from the Bogen Imaging Workshop Café Course Menu, regarding which specific
programs they would like presented. Workshop topics include advanced lighting,
location lighting, fine art digital printing, large scale pigment printing, fine
printing, Adobe Lightroom, and more.



In recognition for achievement, each institution will select an individual scholarship
recipient. The scholarship recipient will have a selection of their work profiled
on the Café website, www.bogencafe.com. Each scholarship winner will also
receive a stable of equipment donated by the event sponsors, including a $1,000
Bogen Bux Gift Certificate good towards the purchase of Bogen Imaging distributed
products; a copy of Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop CS3; a Datacolor Spyder 2 Pro
colorimeter; sample packs of Hahnemuhle photo paper; a Lensbabies 3G selective
focus SLR lens; and a Wacom Intuos3 tablet (4X6).

Lenovo has introduced the ThinkPad W700, a 17-inch widescreen mobile workstation
engineered with technologies and innovations to exceed the demands of the most
data and graphics-intensive users. Lenovo brings the industry's first built-in
digitizer and color calibrator to a mobile workstation and combines these innovations
with first-in-market technologies such as new NVIDIA Quadro FX mobile graphics
and supporting the upcoming Intel mobile quad core processor. Other features such
as optional dual hard drives with RAID configurations, up to 8 GB of high speed
DDR3 memory, a range of wireless connectivity options and excellent multimedia
capabilities including an optional Blu-ray DVD burner/player are said to make
the ThinkPad W700 mobile workstation the standard-bearer for power and performance
in a mobile workstation.



The
ThinkPad W700 mobile workstation has an optional built-in palm rest digitizer
and color calibrator. Lenovo and Intel collaborated to integrate the color calibrator
and digitizer into the ThinkPad W700 mobile workstation. Designed for digital
content creators and users, the mobile workstation's digitizer helps them
easily configure an image, either mapping it to the entire screen or to an area
defined by the user. High performance users, especially digital photographers,
will benefit from models with the built-in color calibrator. The calibrator automatically
adjusts the display's color in up to half the time of many external calibrators
and with higher accuracy, resulting in the most accurate, true-to-life images
in an integrated package. Together with the upcoming Intel mobile quad core processor,
multimedia designers and animators now have outstanding quad-core processor performance
and true color replication that is critical for realistic digital creations and
workflow efficiencies.



Supporting the latest Intel processor technologies including the upcoming mobile
quad core processor, the mobile workstation can be configured with up to 8 GB
of memory with an additional 2 GB of Intel Turbo Memory. Lenovo also offers models
with Intel vPro technology for complete manageability. The mobile workstation
can be equipped with dual internal hard drives, including solid state drive storage.
The ThinkPad W700 mobile workstation offers both the NVIDIA Quadro FX 2700M and
3700M Open GL graphics processors with up to 1 GB of dedicated video memory for
exceptional graphics performance in a 17-inch mobile workstation. The hard drives
can be configured for RAID 0 to help users access and save their data faster than
traditional disk-writing methods, or users can choose RAID 1 for mirrored data
redundancy.



The mobile workstation includes WiFi wireless connectivity. Additionally, users
can connect to other devices wirelessly using mobile workstation models featuring
Bluetooth and ultra wideband technology. Models supporting WiMAX will be available
later this year.
