Computer generated imaging – CGI for short – is a new trend in the photography sector. This virtual visualization technique is an innovative form of imaging and opens up undreamt-of visualization opportunities to the users. The special exhibition photokina cgi is being staged for the fourth time this year and in addition to the manifold presentations of the exhibitors, it also offers a comprehensive lecture programme. Once again in 2014, the team of the Faculty Design of the Georg-Simon-Ohm-Hochschule will be responsible for the exhibition zone under the direction of Prof. H.-M. Jostmeier and they will support interested visitors with their expert know-how.
