Welcome to the future of imaging


The photokina is the worldwide highlight of the imaging industry, pioneering innovations, countless new products, top events, exciting workshops and live shootings. As the global business and community platform, you will experience the fascinating possibilities of technologies such as video & cine, smartphone photography, 360 ° capturing, digital workflows or exciting visions of the future at IMAGING LAB like nowhere else. 

Many futuristic themes have found their place in the Imaging Lab in hall 5.1. With the special area, an ideal environment for the presentation of new concepts and business ideas has been created. Young companies, research institutions and technology leaders present the products and services here that could characterise the future of imaging. Around 50 companies will present themselves as exhibitors, partners or sponsors in the Imaging Lab, in the immediate vicinity of DIGILITY. For start-ups, hall 5.1 is the ideal point for entering the international world of imaging.

“As innovation hub of the world’s leading imaging show the photokina Imaging Lab provides the opportunity especially for start-up companies to shape the future of imaging and to capitalize on the change that has come to the industry. I am looking forward to fascinating technologies and clever business ideas at photokina,” says Prof. Dr. Ing. Andreas Pinkwart, the Minister for Economic Affairs, Innovation, Digitization and Energy of North Rhine-Westphalia, who has taken over patronage of the IMAGING LAB by photokina.
