San Jose, CA--The recipient of the 2011 Achievement Award from the International Imaging Industry Association (I3A) is Jonathan Phillips, senior scientist at the Eastman Kodak Company (Rochester, NY), for his active role in I3A's Camera Phone Image Quality (CPIQ) Initiative. The award was created to recognize, encourage, and celebrate individuals who have contributed to the advancement of the imaging industry through their participation in I3A; each recipient is nominated by I3A community members and selected by a committee of judges.

The I3A CPIQ Initiative works to create a consumer-facing rating system for camera phone image quality that will provide meaningful information to support product decisions for consumers and vendors alike. Lisa Walker, I3A president, said, "We have been very fortunate to have his participation in the CPIQ Initiative. His dedication and efforts have paved the way for publication of the first standardized psychophysical-based image evaluation system. Thanks, Jonathan, for your insights and hard work on behalf of I3A."

Jonathan Phillips has worked at Kodak since 1992 specializing in the optimization of digital consumer photography. He is also a recognized authority on photographic image quality and a frequent speaker at technical conferences on the subjects of systems design, color science, and psychophysics. Most recently, he has led the efforts of Kodak's World Wide Image Quality team. Earlier this year, Phillips carried out an experiment that validated the CPIQ group’s proposed methods to extrapolate the perceived image quality of a mobile phone camera, based on objective results from a series of lab tests.
