Continuing in its efforts to support the
advancement of high-quality scanning within the motion picture industry,
Eastman Kodak Company (NYSE:EK) has recently collaborated with Lasergraphics
to provide customers with KODAK DIGITAL ICE Technology to improve the quality
of motion picture film scanning. Through this new arrangement, Lasergraphics
will be offering DIGITAL ICE Technology on their DIRECTOR series of film
scanners.

?This is a great example of Kodak providing access to innovative technology
that benefits customers within the motion picture industry,? says Kim Snyder,
president of Kodak?s Entertainment Imaging Division. ?DIGITAL ICE Technology
provides an important level of quality assurance in today?s evolving
film/digital workflow. This technology further supports our customers? efforts
to maintain standards for image quality, improve overall efficiency and
protect the creative integrity of motion picture content.?

The software is designed to automatically detect and eliminate dust, scratches
and other anomalies while film images are being converted to digital files for
postproduction. KODAK DIGITAL ICE Technology Version 2.0 incorporates an
option for providing ?uncorrected? image data along with the output defect
matte generated by the software that can be used with other postproduction
applications, making it a state-of-the-art tool for creatives and end users.

?We are pleased to offer our customers automated dust-busting capabilities,?
says Dr. Stefan Demetrescu, CEO of Lasergraphics Inc. ?This upgrade enables
facilities to create pristine digital picture files faster and more cost-
effectively. DIGITAL ICE Technology streamlines the workflow for digital
intermediate, visual effects, broadcast, film restoration and other
applications.?
