Kodak Press Release
Kodak Expands Home Office All-in-One Printer Portfolio with Intelligent 4-in-1 Printing System
New KODAK ESP Office 2170 Printer Offers Exceptional Value
Rochester, N.Y., Apr. 12—Eastman Kodak Company today announced an extension of its All-in-One (AiO) Inkjet Printer portfolio for the home office market that can help lower the cost of doing business. The new KODAK ESP Office 2170 All-in-One Printer, with Kodak’s unique combination of high quality and affordable printing, enables home office professionals to produce first-class presentations, brochures and flyers with vibrant photos, and other business documents efficiently and cost-effectively. Kodak offers the lowest total ink replacement cost1 and exceptional cost-per-page. The new KODAK ESP Office 2170 Printer also easily connects to a wireless home network for printing flexibility and features a compact design.
“Home office professionals require efficient business solutions that are smart, feature-rich, simple to use and offer great value,” said Susan Tousi, General Manager, Inkjet Systems, and Vice President, Eastman Kodak Company. “Our new ESP Office 2170 Printer delivers print, copy, scan and fax capabilities in a compact design for the home office, and provides versatility, connectivity and high quality to meet professionals’ business printing needs.”
Built-In Intelligence for Productivity
The new ESP Office 2170 Printer offers advanced and intelligent features for business or personal use. Designed to complement a mobile lifestyle, it features simplified Wi-Fi set-up (802.11 b/g/n) and connectivity that enables mobile printing of photos from an iPhone, iPod touch, iPad2 or BLACKBERRY device3 with the KODAK Pic Flick App. The ESP Office 2170 Printer also offers important time-saving features, including an intelligent paper sensor that automatically adjusts printer settings based on paper size and type.
High Quality, High Value Options for Varying Printing Needs
KODAK AiO Printing Systems deliver crisp, sharp text documents, brilliant graphics and KODAK Lab-Quality Photos that are smudge and water resistant and last a lifetime4. In addition, the 1.5-inch display and intuitive control panel enables effortless printing of a variety of built-in document templates, including graph paper, line paper and wide-rule paper, therefore saving time-consuming trips to the store.
The new ESP Office 2170 Printer works with the No. 30 Series of Kodak’s proprietary pigment-based ink cartridges5 that provide richer, more vibrant colors, significant fade resistance and instant dry advantage over dye-based ink systems6.
Delivering exceptional cost-per-page output, the new KODAK ESP Office 2170 Printer uses Black and Color standard and XL ink cartridges:
Up to 335 black text pages7 using KODAK Black Ink Cartridge, 30
Up to 670 black text pages8 using KODAK Black Ink Cartridge, 30XL
Up to 275 color pages9 using KODAK Color Ink Cartridge, 30
Up to 550 color pages10 using KODAK Color Ink Cartridge, 30XL
KODAK AiO Printing Systems offer 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 to print two times more11 photos and documents than the KODAK Black Ink Cartridge, 30 and KODAK Color Ink Cartridge, 30. This means fewer cartridge changes, another home office time-saver.
The ESP Office 2170 Printer also offers KODAK Perfect Page Technology12, which corrects scans of less-than-perfect original documents by reducing dark shadows and delivering more vibrant colors and richer details.
Simple and Convenient Printing Experience
Kodak continues to deliver on its commitment to make printing easy. The new KODAK ESP Office 2170 Printer features a robust 150-sheet document paper tray, as well as a 25-page automatic document feeder, which enables consumers to put in a stack of paper and walk away to focus on other tasks. In addition, the front USB port and memory card slots offer easy access and enable printing of photos without a computer.
The KODAK ESP Office 2170 Printer comes with KODAK All-in-One Printer Home Center Software that offers:
Enhanced scanning to network folders, email, memory cards or USB flash drives without a computer, with scans to PDF files faster and with half the file size than with previous software versions
