Rochester, N.Y. -- Kodak Alaris today unveiled the Kodak Photo Service, which opens the company's worldwide installed base of Kodak picture kiosks and printers to content providers, creating new revenue streams for both them and retailers.
By opening its Kodak Network Services APIs, Kodak Alaris gives content providers who join the Kodak Photo Service program immediate access to its global retail network. By providing this access, content providers can create a print-to-store option for their consumers to turn digital content into physical content. Applications and content providers certified for the program include: CameraAce (TecAce); Chappters (iEvoke); Chip Photobook (Onpics); Comic Touch (Plasq); Perfect365 (ArcSoft); PicMix (Inovidea Magna Global); pixmix (Pixmix Ltd); PixStack Photo Editor (Recursify); Postify Print (Postify); Watch The Birdie (Albert Frischmann Consulting); and WedPics (Deja Mi).
Retailers can accept and print a wide variety of content from mobile, desktop and web-based applications, increasing the utilization of their printers without additional investment. Retailers participating in this program include Target and Bartell Drugs in the U.S.
