PMA 2005: Kodak has announced a new website for the ImageLink Print system, which is designed to simplify at-home printing. The system is supported by Kodak, Konica Minolta, Nikon, Olympus, Pentax, Ricoh and Sanyo and will mean that images taken with these manufacturers' cameras can be printed just by pressing one button when the devices are docked in compatible 'snapshot' printers. www.imagelinkprintsystem.com, which will go live in March, will have links to compatible cameras and printers, a frequently asked questions section and news related to the specification.
Consumer Web Site Created for New IMAGELINK Print System
One-Touch, At-Home Picture Printing System Supported by Kodak, Konica Minolta, Nikon, Olympus, Pentax, Ricoh and Sanyo
London, February 20 — A consumer website dedicated to the IMAGELINK print system, the new, multi-manufacturer specification designed to simplify at-home picture printing, will go live this March. The site — www.imagelinkprintsystem.com — includes links to compatible digital camera and printer information, an animated presentation to help people visualise the camera-printer connection, frequently asked questions, and news related to the specification.
Consumer digital cameras from Eastman Kodak Company, Konica Minolta Photo Imaging, Inc., Nikon Corporation, Olympus Corporation, Pentax Corporation, Ricoh Co., Ltd. and Sanyo Electric Co., Ltd. will provide effortless, one-touch picture printing from snapshot printers that incorporate the IMAGELINK print system.
With the IMAGELINK print system, people are able to place their digital cameras directly on printer docks, and then press a single button to make snapshot-sized (4x6-inch or 3.5 x 5-inch) pictures in as little as 90 seconds. The first cameras and printer docks supporting the IMAGELINK specification are now available, with others expected to follow throughout the coming months.
