    NexPress is part of Kodak's Graphic Communications Group, which holds one of the industry's broadest portfolios of digital printing to serve customer needs from wide format inkjet printing and transactional black-and-white and color printing, to high-end on-demand color publishing and continuous inkjet.

    "We are pleased to extend our relationship with Canon, one that has been successful on many fronts – from technology development to sales on a global basis," said James Langley, president, Graphic Communications Group, and senior vice president, Eastman Kodak Company.
