“The Kodak Inkjet portfolio has always delivered high quality prints at an affordable price. With the launch of the ESP C310 Kodak is helping to save consumers time, money and energy," said Susan Tousi, General Manager, Inkjet Systems, and Vice President, Eastman Kodak Company.
The new Kodak PULSE Digital Frame is a wireless device with its own email address that now offers new sharing and social networking features, making it simple and fun for consumers to stay connected and celebrate and relive life’s moments. A new Quick Comment button on the touchscreen allows you to comment on the pictures you receive from friends and family the moment you receive them, right from the frame, with options like Such a Kodak MOMENT, LOL!, OMG!, and Congrats! The PULSE Frame also connects to FACEBOOK and KODAK Gallery albums so pictures are streamed to the frame automatically. In addition, you can now create playlists to choose the pictures you want to see the most. Available in 7-inch and 10-inch sizes, the KODAK PULSE Digital Frame also has a new built-in activity sensor that turns the frame on when you’re nearby and conserves power when you’re not. CEA has recognized the new KODAK PULSE Frame in the Eco-Design and Sustainable Technology category for its energy efficient features including the activity sensor, ENERGY STAR and LED backlighting.
The new Kodak ESP C310 All-in-One (AiO) Printer offers an affordable, intuitive printing solution that saves the consumer time, money and energy. The KODAK ESP C310 has also been selected as an honoree in the Eco-Design and Sustainability Category as it delivers incomparable quality with lower power consumption while boasting the lowest total ink replacement cost in the industry.
