Welcome and Introduction
Listen as Greg Hollows, VP, Imaging Business Unit at Edmund Optics, details the agenda and what you can expect
Keynote - Mindset Needed for Building a Complete System by Steve Wardell
Steve Wardell, Director of Imaging at ATS Automation™ and Chairman of the Board for Automated Imaging Association (AIA), will talk about the mindset needed for building a complete system. Attendees will learn how to approach their application need, ask the right questions, and understand the proper combination of imaging technologies to solve problems. This session will be accompanied by an application demonstration about working distance and focal length basics.
Panel Discussion - How to Choose the Right Products for Applications
Hear from some of the brightest in the industry as they address real-world questions from those in the trenches, building imaging systems during this dynamic, open discussion.

Interactive Application Demonstration #1 – Lens Types, Resolution, and Sensor Coverage
Deep learning through hands-on explanation straight from the imaging labs at Edmund Optics! Explaining how lenses can only cover certain sizes of sensors and the tradeoffs that come with that fact.
Interactive Application Demonstration #2 – Wavelength and f/# How these two parameters can drastically change system performance and why they should not be overlooked.
Interactive Application Demonstration #3 – Axial and Lateral Chromatic Aberration Detailing how chromatic aberration manifests in different ways in an imaging system.
Optional Networking Roundtable Discussions
This is your opportunity to speak directly with your industry peers to discuss common problems and brainstorm solutions. You will have the opportunity to pick a virtual round table to join that is most relevant to your needs.
Virtual Roundtable #1: Pairing Sensors and Optics
Virtual Roundtable #2: Outfitting your Lab for your Needs
Virtual Roundtable #3: Building a Full System from off the Shelf Products
