Kodak’s Pioneering Contributions to Digital Photography
April 26, 2022 @ 4:30 pm - 5:15 pm
The IEEE Electron Devices Society Rochester Chapter proudly presents Ken Parulski of aKAP Innovation.
This talk describes key imaging technologies developed by Kodak which are widely used in today’s digital photography systems, and some of Kodak’s pioneering consumer and professional digital cameras. Kodak invented integral color image sensors and single-chip color cameras now used in products ranging from smartphones to digital cinema cameras. Organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) developed by Kodak are now used in a wide range of color displays. Kodak also created the world’s first megapixel D-SLR camera in 1987, the first consumer megapixel camera in 1997, and the first consumer dual-lens digital camera in 2006. In addition, Kodak made major contributions to industry standards, including JPEG compression, image formats and metadata, and the methods used to measure resolution, noise, and image quality in today’s digital photography systems.
Ken Parulski is an expert consultant to major mobile imaging companies in the US, Europe, and Asia, and leads the development of ISO standards for digital photography. He joined Kodak Research Labs in 1980 after receiving bachelor’s and master’s degrees in electrical engineering from MIT. He retired in 2012 as Research Fellow and Chief Scientist in Kodak’s digital photography division. His work has been recognized with a Technical Emmy and other major awards. Ken is an SMPTE Fellow, a Senior Member of IEEE, and an inventor on 230 U.S. patents.
