"We wanted to give customers six months notice so they could prepare. In addition, there will be further informative postings on the Kodak Professional website in early July," said Ciranni.
"We're still very active in the digital market," he explained. "But as the market converts to digital output the older product lines begin to erode. Kodak will continue to offer all its other Pro Lab Media, including its professional color papers as well as its thermal and inkjet media," he concluded.
