Eastman Kodak (News - Alert) (News - Alert) Company released several innovative and interactive products enabling users to experience their photos and videos in new ways from capture to viewing and sharing.

“Kodak brought consumers the first digital camera, and ever since we have been committed to providing people with choices that bring their memories and passions to life,” said John Blake, general manager, Digital Capture and Devices, and vice president, Eastman Kodak Company. 

“Consumers are asking for solutions that free their trapped images from PCs, memory cards and digital cameras. They are asking for sleek and innovative, yet intuitive devices. They want an abundance of resources for capturing and displaying content in HD. The innovative portfolio introduced today addresses those needs and will inspire consumers to experience and explore moments they love in exciting new ways,” added Blake. 

The Kodak Theatre HD Player is an interactive device which displays personal and Web-based content on an HDTV connected wirelessly to private Wi-Fi Network in the house.

Partnerships with FrameChannel, YouTube (News - Alert) (News - Alert) and RadioTime give access to imaging content, interactive and engaging multimedia experience. The HD Player is compatible with USB drives and SD memory cards. FrameChannel offers access to news and information also. 

The W1020 and W820 wireless digital frame models offer 800x 480 high-resolution, 16:9 aspect ratio digital display with size 10-inch and 8-inch respectively and display images in HD format.
