PMA 2018 Report
Seagate unveils the Black Armor PS110 USB 3.0 portable external hard drive performance kit for netbooks. Demonstrating its industry leadership in delivering advanced and easy-to-use storage solutions, this all-in-one USB 3.0 toolkit packages a 500GB 7200RPM 2.5 inch hard drive, power cable and PC express card, to deliver speeds up to three times faster than its USB 2.0 predecessor, making it one of the fastest portable hard drives available. “As we continue to amass vast libraries of HD photos, movies, & music, the storage needs of households are forecast to grow more than ten times between 2009 & 2013, and the average storage requirements will exceed a terabyte by 2013”, said Kurt Schreff, analyst of Parks Associates.
The PMA show, or Photo Marketing Association, continues its yearly tradition of maintaining a network of photo imaging as well as the experience and know-how of the industry. The PMA represents 20,000 members from over 100 countries, who are all active within the imaging industry. As a reflection of the changes in the market, the PMA organization has also changed and has become more diverse. Nowadays, the member group consists of representatives coming from photo retail, manufacturers, commercial photo labs, professional sports and news photography, in addition to small album print suppliers and photo processing centers. The PMA 2012 Trade show focuses on an industry which is heavily affected by the unstable situation of the global financial economy. However, whether the latter will also stand in the way of the innovation and product introductions, remains to be revealed by the PMA International Convention & Trade Show in Anaheim Convention Center (California, US).
