New commissions: phone and imaging tech

I’m writing a couple of features for the Financial Times looking at imaging technology, and smart phone technology.

For the first, focusing on smart phones, we’re looking at some of the innovations that could be in the next generation of phones.

Taking imaging as a standpoint – films and TV ads are now being made on iPhones – what could the next wave of innovation look like? Is there a role for 8K cameraphones, HDR screens, or surround sound microphones?

We’ll look at how manufacturers are using these innovations to convince consumers to upgrade, and how some innovations might also leave users behind. Plus, what impact have these smartphones on the market for standalone cameras?

The article will be in the July Connected Business report so the deadline for submitting leads or background information is 1600 BST, Friday 17 June.

For a follow up piece to be published later, I’m also interested in research and commentary on innovations in broadcasting, film making and imaging. Last year saw 4K come of age. What’s next for this industry?

Please send any pitches by email in the first instance.
