Professional and avid photographers looking to travel to Cologne, Germany will
notice some changes when they prepare for their trip to photokina 2006, Sept.
26 -- Oct. 1, 2006 in Cologne, Germany. Photokina veterans should quickly
forget about the previous hall number system. As a result of an altered fairground
all hall numbers have changed. Halls are no longer defined by consumer or professional
interest. The newly renovated and renumbered fairground has now the shape of
a shopping mall. Connected by one Main Corridor "Messeboulevard"
navigation is now easier than in the past. Forgot to see someone in Hall 6?
Don't worry, cut through the main corridor and you will be there in no
time. Traffic into the halls will be fed from four entrance points at the South,
East, North and West of the fairground.

The
new Sigma 10-20mm F4-5.6 EX DC HSM lens allows enjoyment of super wide-angle
photography and it is a very powerful tool for indoor shooting and landscape
photography with APS-C size image sensors of digital SLR cameras. It offers
a wide angle of view (102.4 degrees at 10mm and 63.8 degrees at 20mm) and features
three SLD glass elements for effective compensation of color aberration, which
is a common problem with super-wide angle lenses. One piece of glass mold and
two hybrid aspherical lenses offer excellent correction for distortion, as well
as all types of aberration.



This lens is equipped with an inner focusing system, and the models are equipped
with an HSM system to provide quiet, high speed autofocus shooting and also
offer full time manual focusing. It has a minimum focusing distance of 24cm
(9.4") at all focal lengths. The non-rotating lens barrel perfectly suits
the petal shaped lens hood. A circular polarizing filter can also be used conveniently.

ImageSpan Inc. and Digimarc Corporation (NASDAQ: DMRC) announced that they have partnered to deliver a complete solution to manage, monitor and monetize valuable image assets. ImageSpan’s LicenseStream automated licensing, publishing and royalty processing platform will be combined with Digimarc for Images, which lets photography agencies, media companies, museums and archives add an imperceptible digital watermark to communicate copyright ownership and information on how to contact the owner wherever the image is found online. The LicenseStream   Content Tracker then crawls the Web looking for uniquely watermarked images, providing regular reporting on where a content owner’s images are found so they can take appropriate action.

The solution optimizes content for search engines before it is published to the Web and then provides the means for any buyer to license that content with a mouse click and with flexible pricing based on use. Since watermarks can be unique to various instances of the same image, content owners have the flexibility to set licensing terms depending on the specific usage and buyer.

The Content Tracker continuously monitors billions of images on the Web to locate a customer’s digitally watermarked images. In addition to the standard search, the solution offers a directed search option that lets a content owner specify Web sites to be monitored regularly. Search reports include thumbnails of the images found with the URLs of the websites where they were located. Reports are automatically sent out each month. Alternatively, content owners can generate their own reports at any time.
