The digital print's collectibility is perhaps one of the most controversial issues in the art world today. Is the perceived "glass ceiling" that some artists are reporting about the showing and collecting of the digital print real or just imagined? Come and hear what the experts have to say. Early in his research and testing career, Henry Wilhelm, photo and print consultant to MOMA and to Bill Gates' Bettmann Archive, served as a technical adviser to film director Martin Scorsese in his successful effort to persuade Eastman Kodak and Fuji Photo Film Co. Ltd. to increase the stability of their motion picture color negative and color print films. Now, he is concerned primarily with testing of inkjet materials and other types of digital hardcopy, for which he has become the field's foremost expert.

The panel will begin with short, informative presentations. Henry Wilhelm will deliver his most recent research about digital inks on paper. Randy Green of MuseX Editions will speak about the various types of machines and outputs from which the contemporary computer artist or photographer can choose. Of course, he will talk about the "Rolls Royce" of this industry, the giclee print from the Iris printer, plus the Lightjet 5000 by Cymbolic Sciences, and a new top-of-the line contender to be announced from ColorSpan Corporation. And, since a key to the longevity equation is paper, Linda Laska from Arches will discuss this important component.

The second part of the program will draw upon the first-hand experience and knowledge base of the other panelists to add spice and breadth to the panel discussion and audience Q&A period:
