IMAGERY LAYING FOUNDATION FOR NEW BREED OF NETWORK APPLICATIONS; IMAGERY'S ENABLING TECHNOLOGIES AT THE HEART OF IE NETWARE

 BEDFORD, Mass., March 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Imagery Software, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Eastman Kodak Company, today announced that its image, document and mass storage technologies are the foundation for Novell Inc.'s Image Enabled (IE) NetWare platform. Imagery and Novell have been jointly developing IE NetWare to make the leading network operating system the basis for enhanced, cost-effective image- and document management-enabled solutions. A portion of IE NetWare is directly implemented in NetWare 4.0.
 Leading software and networking vendors, including Lotus Development Corp. and Folio Corp., have signed partnership agreements with Imagery to provide end users with image-capable applications which will ultimately support IE NetWare.
 "Early support from leading imaging, document management, peripheral, office-automation, software and tool vendors demonstrates the industry's growing demand for and broad acceptance of image-enabled network applications," said Ruth Habbe, Imagery's vice president of the Novell program. "Imagery is proud to be Novell's partner in creating a platform that will spur development of a new breed of image-enabled applications."
 Operating in the NetWare 4.0 environment, IE NetWare tightly integrates imaging, document management and mass storage capabilities, creating a platform on which Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), Value Added Resellers (VARs) and end users can quickly build and deploy applications that deliver the benefits of these enabling technologies. The early adopters will leverage IE NetWare to provide end users with applications and development tools that allow for efficient and cost- effective management of all types of data on the network.
 Imagery is providing NetWare 4.0 with a High Capacity Storage System (HCSS) that incorporates a jukebox manager for all types of files. The HCSS allows access to optical storage via the NetWare file system and is the foundation for high-value, distributed hierarchical storage management services.
 Other robust components of the IE NetWare platform include the Mass Storage Service(MSS), Document Management Service (DMS) and Image Management Service(IMS). These services offer the following benefits:
 -- MSS allows for efficient storage management by providing
 distributed, hierarchical data migration, creating a bottomless
 repository for all types of data. MSS optimizes storage
 resources by automating file migration through the network
 storage hierarchy.
 -- DMS allows applications to incorporate object indexing
 capabilities in a distributed manner using a document/folder
 paradigm.
 -- IMS provides facilities to create, maintain, access and
 manipulate images in a variety of formats, and to manage the
 import and export of the image data. IMS also allows
 applications to store and retrieve images using the MSS.
 IE NetWare services are open and allow shared access among other IE NetWare-enabled applications. These services, either running independently or in tandem with an application, allow end users to realize increased workgroup productivity, improved data security and control, reduced costs and improved customer service.
 "Imagery introduced the image-enabling concept in 1991 when we announced partnerships with Lotus and Novell," said Steve Conkling, Imagery's president and CEO. "Now we are delivering to leaders in the computer industry the means to image-enable their network environment."
 Imagery Software, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Eastman Kodak Company, is a software company devoted to bringing imaging functionality to the desktop. Imagery partners with leading software and network vendors to develop imaging extensions to their existing products. The company, which was recently named by LAN Times as the Readers' Choice Document Imaging Company of the Year, is based in Bedford, Mass.
