    Kodak Adding 1,100 Digital Kiosks Nationwide
    Kodak
    and Ritz Camera Centers Partner to Bring Kodak’s New Digital Photo
    Kiosks to 1100 Stores Nationwide; Just in Time for the Holidays, the
    New KODAK Picture Kiosk G4 Makes Digital Photography Faster and More
    Convenient for Consumers

    NEW
    YORK, Dec. 2005 – Eastman Kodak Company and Ritz Camera Centers, the
    largest retail camera and imaging photo chain in the U.S., today
    announced a partnership to deploy Kodak’s new digital photo kiosks in
    all Ritz Camera stores across the country, totaling approximately 1,100
    locations. Ritz Camera will be the first retailer to install Kodak’s
    new G4 kiosks, which make KODAK-quality digital print in just eight
    seconds – 35% faster than prior models.
    The KODAK Picture Kiosk G4
    makes prints from a wide range of digital media sources, and the kiosk
    also creates KODAK Picture CDs and passport photos, among other
    features.
    New Kiosks
    Introduced in November 2005, the KODAK
    Picture Kiosk G4 will appear at Ritz stores just in time for the busy
    holiday printing season. The kiosks offer performance improvements and
    new features designed to elevate and expedite the printing experience,
    including a high-performance processor doubling the image upload speed
    from memory cards, thereby allowing multiple pictures to appear on
    screen for selection and editing in just seconds.
    The KODAK Picture
    Kiosk G4 family is the latest evolution in Kodak’s award-winning,
    innovative line of photo kiosks. With more than 70,000 photo kiosks
    installed at retail locations worldwide, Kodak is, by far, the world’s
    leading supplier of photo kiosks.
    Features and Ease of Use
    “By
    partnering with Ritz Camera, the largest and one of the most trusted
    photo retail chains in the country, people will be able to experience
    the enhanced features, ease of use and improved speed of these next
    generation G4 kiosks,” said Christopher Sliva, General Manager, Kiosk
    Business, Eastman Kodak Company. “Kodak and Ritz Camera are committed
    to providing consumers with multiple options to instantly print and
    share their memories during the holiday season and beyond.”
    “It is
    an exciting and tremendous opportunity to be the first place where
    users can experience the new KODAK Picture Kiosk G4 family,” said Rich
    Tranchida, Executive Vice President, Ritz Camera Centers. “Digital
    photography enthusiasts of all levels have long trusted Kodak’s kiosks
    to provide them with high quality prints in a few simple steps, in
    addition to further enhancements in their printing options that elevate
    the overall kiosk experience.”
    The KODAK Picture Kiosk G4 supports
    all popular digital media formats (e.g., memory cards, USB drives,
    CDs/DVDs), digital scanning, and wireless printing via BLUETOOTH® and
    infrared technologies. The kiosks apply an XTRALIFE™ coating to the
    prints to provide extra protection against stains, spills and
    fingerprints. The kiosk also offers services beyond standard printing
    such as KODAK Picture CDs, a range of printing sizes and editing
    options, customized borders and even photo calendars. Inside the
    attractive new body is a high-performance processor — 35 percent
    faster than prior models — combined with an improved user interface.
    This will reduce transaction times and increase retailer productivity.
    The new design allows for easier serviceability, helping to maintain
    peak performance while simplifying upkeep for retailers.

    Kodak Company is the leader in helping people take, share, print and
