 KODAK PROCESSING AND TRANSMISSION SERVICES
 TO BRING WINTER OLYMPICS TO THE WORLD
 ROCHESTER, N.Y., Dec. 6 /PRNewswire -- Eastman Kodak Company (NYSE: EK) has added services and sites to its press center for the 1992 Olympic Winter Games. As part of its services, Kodak will provide scanning and transmission of images.
 In addition, Kodak will run three press centers to serve all accredited photographers. These are located at La Lechere, Val d'Isere, and Les Saisies. The La Lechere site will provide full processing services, including scanning and transmission. The Val d'Isere and Les Saisies sites will provide one-hour C-41 (minilab) processing and regular pickup and drop off for other films. Films dropped off at one center can be returned to another.
 As in 1988, each center will offer a roll of unprocessed Kodak film for every roll dropped off for processing. In addition, Kodak representatives will be available to answer any questions or address technical problems.
 Image scanning and transmission will be available at the Kodak Advanced Imaging Area. Apple Computer has provided Kodak with Macintosh Quadra computers with new 21-inch color monitors for the center. The computers will be linked to scanners that input images at resolutions up to 2,000 by 3,000 pixels.
 Once an image is scanned, the photographer can crop it and compress the file for quick transmission by telephone link. Each Macintosh computer is equipped with Supermac 24-bit color boards and additional memory from Techworks. Photographers will be charged for telephone transmissions.
 The La Lechere center will also have a limited number of Kodak professional digital camera systems available for loan.
 The centers will be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Feb. 3 through Feb. 7 and from 8:30 a.m. to approximately 1 a.m. on Feb. 8 through Feb. 23. They will also be open on Feb. 24 through Feb. 26 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. to return processed film.
