KODAK AND CANON EXPAND WORKING ALLIANCE FOR NEW MICROGRAPHICS PRODUCTS

 ROCHESTER, N.Y., March 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Eastman Kodak Company's Office Imaging organization and the Image Management Systems group for Canon, Inc. today announced plans to cooperate in the research, development and production of microfilm-based products for the office.
 This new alliance is an extension of the alliance for worldwide office products announced in July 1992 and builds on Canon's and Kodak's successful relationship in the field of copier products. The alliance extends the benefits of this relationship to customers of microfilm- based products and will enhance each company's product line. Customers should see improved price/performance and a faster time to market for new products.
 "Our goal is to enhance the micrographics product portfolio offered by each company and to provide high-quality products in response to worldwide customer demand," according to Edgar J. Greco, Kodak vice-president and worldwide general manager for Office Imaging.
 By reducing research, development and production costs, both companies expect to optimize worldwide manufacturing resources and stimulate growth in worldwide microfilm markets. Each company is expecting to announce new, customer-driven products in 1993.
 Under the alliance, Kodak will draw upon Canon's expertise in microfilm reader/printers and market select Canon manufactured reader/printers under the Kodak brand. Canon will utilize Kodak's expertise by marketing select microfilmers manufactured by Kodak under the Canon brand to meet the specifications of Canon customers. To further supplement each company's microfilm-based product line, Canon and Kodak plan to jointly develop new microfilm products.
