Advanced KODAK Printing System with New Ink Offers High Quality and Convenience While Maintaining Low Total Running Costs
ROCHESTER, N.Y., -- Eastman Kodak Company (NYSE: EK) today announced the newest addition to its All-in-One (AiO) Inkjet Printer portfolio -- the KODAK ESP C310 All-in-One (AiO) Printer. Complete with a sleek, new compact design, the ESP C310 Printer provides wireless printing for effortless home use, easy-to-use features and Kodak's legendary image quality for an unbeatable value. Coupled with Kodak's new 30 series ink system(1) that offers consumers the lowest total ink replacement cost(2) and exceptional cost-per-page, the ESP C310 Printer is an intuitive printing solution that helps save the consumer time, money and energy. Selected as an honoree in the Eco-Design and Sustainability Category for the Consumer Electronics Show 2011 Innovation Awards, the ESP C310 Printer delivers high quality while using up to 71 percent less energy while in standby mode than previous KODAK AiO Printers.

"Kodak has always been committed to delivering what consumers care about most - high-quality output at an affordable price and the most unique printing experience," said Susan Tousi, General Manager, Inkjet Systems, and Vice President, Eastman Kodak Company. "Kodak continues to tap into the true needs of the consumer, delivering a printer that makes scanning, copying and printing simple, offers easy connectivity to mobile devices and -- most importantly -- offers outstanding output quality at an affordable price."
Advanced Capabilities, Affordable Prices
The ESP C310 Printer features simplified Wi-Fi set up, allowing effortless connectivity to wireless networks in the home or even to iPhone, iPod touch or iPad mobile devices(4). From the printer control panel, consumers can also access built-in templates for the convenient printing of a variety of different forms, including graph paper, line paper, wide-rule paper, tic-tac-toe, to-do lists, grocery lists and even sheet music.
Kodak's intelligently-designed printers deliver cost-effective, exceptional quality. The new KODAK AiO Printer works with a new No. 30 line of Kodak's proprietary pigmented inks(1), enabling consumers to print crisp text documents, brilliant graphics and KODAK Lab Quality Photos(5) that will last a lifetime(6).
The new system, which uses Black and Color standard and XL ink cartridges, offers consumers more choices tailored to meet their printing needs. For example, the KODAK Black Ink Cartridge, 30XL and the KODAK Color Ink Cartridge, 30XL enable consumers who print a high volume of photos and documents two times more(7) prints than the KODAK Black Ink Cartridge, 30 and KODAK Color Ink Cartridge, 30:
-- Up to 335 black text pages(8) using KODAK Black Ink Cartridge, 30
-- Up to 670 black text pages(9) using KODAK Black Ink Cartridge, 30XL
-- Up to 275 color pages(10) using KODAK Color Ink Cartridge, 30
-- Up to 550 color pages(11) using KODAK Color Ink Cartridge, 30XL
Unlike any other manufacturer's printers, the KODAK ESP C310 Printer with the proprietary pigmented inks delivers richer, more vibrant colors that provide a significant fade resistance and instant dry(12) advantage over other ink systems. Kodak offers the lowest total ink replacement cost(2) and exceptional cost-per-page and in line with all KODAK AiO Printers, the KODAK ESP C310 Printer enables consumers to print high-quality photos and documents.
