Kodak To Step Into Camera Phone Market with TI

Posted on 11-Feb-2006 11:35 | Filed under: News


Texas Instruments (TI) and Eastman Kodak Company will be demonstrating a technology that will bring improvements in camera phone image quality and increased ease of sharing of camera phone images from phone-to-phone, phone-to-web and phone-to- print.

The demonstration will happen during the 3GSM 2006 in Barcelona, Spain.

Kodak and TI have been developing technology solutions for mobile handsets that fully realise the potential of mobile phone imaging to consumers, handset manufacturers and operators alike. The two companies will show solutions that enhance image quality using Kodak Perfect Touch Technology running on TI's OMAP2420 applications processor, a member of TI's OMAP platform.

This represents the first time that the Kodak technology, which was previously available only on the company's printers and select Easyshare cameras, is being made available on a processor to third party manufacturers.

Additionally, Kodak and TI will show how users could more easily generate prints from Kodak Kiosks or to share their images and memories on the Kodak Easyshare Gallery, also powered by TI's OMAP2420 processor.
