Kodak HDTV Dock
Kodak unveiled a new product aimed at helping consumers bring photos back into their homes and into their lives by expanding the possibilities for image display. Millions of digital pictures are captured every year, but most remain trapped in digital cameras or on home computers. At the same time, the widespread adoption of High Definition (HD) televisions presents a new opportunity to relive personal photos and videos with incredible image clarity and sharpness, while growing demand for digital picture frames allows for instant digital photo sharing anywhere in the home. Kodak is delivering an easy solution for consumers to display HD pictures on vibrant, wide-screen HDTVs and digital picture frames.

“At Kodak, we believe consumers should be inspired, not intimidated, by the photography experience - from capturing to sharing and displaying. We are breaking down the technology barriers and making it easy for everyone to relive their memories in the highest quality possible,” said John Blake, General Manager Kodak Digital Capture and Devices, Vice President Eastman Kodak Company. "The products announced today represent an important step in helping remove the boundaries for how images can be viewed and shared, and Kodak is dedicated to supporting innovation that will continue to bring intelligent, easy-to-use HD solutions to the market.”
