These new papers utilize proprietary E-surface technology to create high-quality, photo-grade media for EP presses, offering the look, feel and surface of photographic paper. With these papers, customers can intermix media output from silver-halide printers and digital presses to expand the potential portfolio of photo offerings, as well as enhance productivity. It is yet another example of how Kodak helps customers Connect With Pro Quality.
Kodak’s new papers use the same professional paper base and Lustre (E-Surface) used on Kodak Professional Endura Color Negative Photographic Paper. This enables professional labs, studios, central lab operations (CLOs) and print operators interested in photo-realistic quality to intermix media output, and produce differentiated digital press products, more quickly and of higher quality, when compared to conventional EP on plain coated paper. It also allows customers to offer premium output at various price points. For example, professional labs can create wedding albums on traditional photographic paper and offer less-expensive companion books, printed on ENDURA EP Paper, for couples to give to family members.
