Allendale, NJ (October 27, 2010) – Leica Camera Inc. is pleased to announce an exclusive partnership with the Center for Digital Imaging Inc. (CDI), an international digital imaging consulting firm. This collaboration will offer training programs for the Leica S-System beginning November 1, 2010. A service beyond typical Pro Dealer resources, CDI will work with S-System users one-on-one to help them create new or redefine current imaging workflow strategies.
Leica Camera revolutionized the world of photography with the digital S-system, a completely new digital camera concept to meet supreme professional requirements. The Leica S2 features flexibility, durability and easy operation combined with industry-leading resolution and image quality. The CDI S-System programs will enhance this photographic innovation, drawing on CDI’s expertise with advanced integration of digital capture, color management, compliance with international imaging standards, asset management and all forms of display and output.
There are two programs available through the CDI/S-System partnership. The S2 Quick Start program is a one-day onsite session designed to help new and existing S2 users maximize their investment via a concise, step-by-step process of optimizing imaging performance to meet international capture standards. During this time, participants will effectively enhance the output of Adobe Lightroom workflows. The session includes custom camera calibration/configuration, camera/workflow performance report, and step-by-step documentation. The price is $2,200.00. Travel expenses are not included.
The second program features S2 Advanced Integration Services and is designed specifically for larger workgroups and studio operations where the S2 is part of a larger integrated workflow. In addition to the one-day Quick Start training, the S2 Advanced Integration Services program features a one-day needs analysis survey and report to help users address issues related to color management for display and output, advanced process control, asset management and strategies for distribution and output. The price is $4,400.00. Travel expenses are not included.
The CDI S-System Training Programs can be booked through any of Leica’s North American dealers. For more information on CDI’s services including the above packages offered, please visit www.cdiny.com or contact Scott Geffert at 347-850-2349.
