Through advanced digital imaging technologies, Kodak will support attendees' security, athletes' health, and photojournalists' images at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. Kodak is the Official Imaging Sponsor of the Olympic Games, taking place Aug. 8-24.
In Beijing, Kodak's most advanced imaging technologies will be employed to help create accreditation badges, provide onsite image-rich printing and publishing services, and support thousands of photojournalists capturing the action of the Olympic Games for news media worldwide.
In addition, Kodak through an arrangement with Carestream Health, is providing health imaging services to diagnose injuries to athletes.
"The Olympic Games captivate people everywhere and enable the world's best athletes to showcase their talents," said Antonio M. Perez, Kodak Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
"Dating back to the first modern Olympic Games in Athens in 1896 - Kodak has been there to help capture and preserve the history, while also supporting the athletes. We're proud to play that role again in Beijing."
