 MCI TO USE KODAK RECORDABLE COMPACT DISC
 TO DELIVER BILLING DATA FOR LARGE CUSTOMERS
 WASHINGTON, and ROCHESTER, N.Y., Dec. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Large companies, which traditionally receive thousands of pages of complex long distance bills, will soon be able to obtain the information on compact disc (CD), MCI and Kodak today announced.
 The compact disc -- considered to be the next-generation method for distributing large volumes of data -- would easily be used to analyze the data on a personal computer, eliminating reams of computer printout paper or several mainframe computer tapes while improving management of telecommunications costs, the companies said.
 Next year MCI plans to use the compact disc technology, which was recently demonstrated, to deliver billing data to its largest customers who use Vnet, a virtual private network service.
 The future use of compact disc technology is an extension of MCI's overall billing strategy to provide customers with flexible customized billing and paperless billing alternatives.
 "This CD technology developed by Kodak has the potential to revolutionize the way information is distributed, retrieved and analyzed," said James Zucco, MCI's senior vice president of Systems Engineering.
 "With the adoption of the recordable write-once CD format and intelligent software, MCI will be giving its large business customers a breakthrough tool to more effectively manage their telecommunications services," said Don Thibeau, Kodak's marketing manager in CD Imaging's Mass Memory Division.
 MCI began working with Kodak when it learned that Kodak had developed a method for writing individual CDs quickly and economically as part of its Photo CD program.
 "The write-once data CD system that we developed for MCI represents the first commercial extension of our CD imaging technology into data market segments," said Kodak's Stephen S. Stepnes, general manager and vice president, CD Imaging.
