New KODAK Solution Lets Consumers Scan a Lifetime of Memories


Leveraging off the award-winning KODAK i1220 Scanner’s performance is the new in-store scanning solution on display this week at the 2007 AIIM ON DEMAND Conference & Exposition that allows consumers to turn a shoebox of photos into custom CDs, DVDs, or online uploads for use in creating other photographic and digital imaging products.

The KODAK s1220 Photo Scanning System lets users feed black-and-white and color prints for batch scanning and includes associated software to capture the photos and perform simple enhancements such as sharpening or red-eye reduction. Aimed at retail countertop services, the solution provides fast 30 picture-per-minute scans, is easy to use and requires little counter space.

“Businesses are not alone in their efforts to convert vital documents and images to digital files,” said Lois Powell, Director of Capture Solutions, Document Imaging, Kodak’s Graphic Communications Group. “This solution provides an easy way for consumers to recapture and to share some of the most important moments of their lives with family and friends.”

During the past year, Kodak has conducted consumer research as well as a number of market trials with retailers to gauge demand for the service. Consumers responded favorably – and so has at least one group of retailers to potentially serve them. Powell said that the Independent Photo Imagers (IPI) trade association has ordered 150 of the i1220 Scanners for its membership to use in similar applications. IPI members own more than 730 storefront locations across the U.S., Mexico, and Australia.

The KODAK s1220 Photo Scanning System will debut in July with an expected price to U.S. retailers at $2,495. The new system is backed by KODAK Service & Support, the benchmark service provider for the document imaging industry, named Best Support Organization in the 2006 International Business Awards.
