Lifetouch to Embrace New Capture and Storage Media

It is with great pride that we announce that we have signed an agreement with the Eastman Kodak Company to license a high–‐resolution capture device with a large 46mm sensor that also functions as a high–‐density archival storage medium to preserve our customers’ Memories For A Lifetime™.

The state–‐of–‐the–‐art material, “File Image Longterm Media™,” will be used in the new MicroLDX1 platform, which will combine the best Lifetouch camera innovations of the past quarter century into a long–‐roll mirrorless solution that can be used across all product lines, divisions, and applications.

We believe that we can all rally behind F.I.L.M.™ as the technology that will take us into the future, and fulfill the promise of the photographic revolution.
