Imatest LLC Chief Technical Officer and Founder Norman Koren was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award by AutoSens during the latest AutoSense-Detroit. In a sparkling virtual ceremony, Norman remarked:
“Thank you all for this unexpected honor, which I appreciate all the more because everyone on the short list is outstandingly qualified. My work in imaging is actually my second career, which I started it when I was sixty. It’s been a real honor to help the industry improve the quality of a wide variety of cameras and a pleasure to get to know some amazing people along the way.”
Norman founded Imatest in 2004 after a career in magnetic recording technology that provided him with a strong background for developing image quality analysis software. He holds a B.A. in Physics from Brown University and an M.A. in Physics from Wayne State University. Norman has been a photography enthusiast since 1964 and maintains a photography web site, which features a portfolio of his work and a number of technical articles.
