Association for Professional Color Imagers
|The Association of Professional
Color Imagers (APCI) functions to develop and promote the professional
color laboratory industry, furthering the interests and welfare of its
International Imaging Industry Association
|Created by the merger of PIMA
and the DIG, I3A ? the International Imaging Industry Association ?
represents a strong, more far-reaching voice for the imaging industry.
After all, as film-to-digital and digital-to-film technologies have
evolved, the dividing lines between the associations and the segments
of the industries they represent have blurred. The Internet, as we all
know, has dramatically increased the demand for, and the value of,
images. And new applications for photographic and imaging technologies
are emerging at an ever-increasing rate. To this dynamic environment,
the I3A brings together two proven forces, delivering the resources and
will to continue to advance the industry in ways that represent the
best interests of our members and the customers they serve.
