Rochester, NY—Kodak extended its all-in-one (AiO) inkjet printer portfolio with its ESP Office 2170 printer, which provides Kodak’s “combination of high quality and affordable printing.” The company claims it offers the lowest total ink replacement cost and exceptional cost-per-page.
The ESP Office 2170 also connects to a wireless home network for printing flexibility and features a compact design.
“Our new ESP Office 2170 printer delivers print, copy, scan and fax capabilities in a compact design for the home office and provides versatility, connectivity and high quality to meet professionals’ business printing needs,” said Susan Tousi, general manager, Inkjet Systems, and vice president, Eastman Kodak.
The printer is engineered to offer intelligent features, including a simplified Wi-Fi setup (802.11 b/g/n) and connectivity that enables mobile printing of photos from an iPhone, iPod touch, iPad or BlackBerry device with the Kodak Pic Flick app, as well as an intelligent paper sensor that automatically adjusts printer settings based on paper size and type.
Specs state the Kodak AiO printing systems “deliver crisp, sharp text documents, brilliant graphics and Kodak lab-quality photos that are smudge and water resistant and last a lifetime.” In addition, a 1.5-inch display and intuitive control panel help enable effortless printing of a variety of built-in document templates, including graph paper, line paper and wide-rule paper.
The printer uses the no. 30 series of Kodak’s proprietary pigment-based ink cartridges, said to provide significant fade resistance and instant dry advantages over dye-based ink systems. Its page output is estimated to be: 335 black text pages using Kodak black ink cartridge 30; 670 black text pages using Kodak black ink cartridge 30XL; 275 color pages using Kodak color ink cartridge 30; and 550 color pages using Kodak color ink cartridge 30XL.
Other features include: Kodak Perfect Page technology, which was developed to correct scans of less-than-perfect original documents by reducing dark shadows and delivering more vibrant colors and richer details; a 150-sheet document paper tray; a 25-page automatic document feeder; and a front USB port and memory card slots.
The ESP Office 2170 comes with Kodak All-in-One Printer Home Center software that offers: scanning to network folders, e-mail, memory cards or USB drives without a computer, with scans to PDF files faster and with half the file size than with previous software versions; printing pictures from video from .mov, .avi and .mp4 files in standard and HD resolutions; photo printing from social sites such as Facebook, Kodak Gallery, Picasa, Flickr and Photobucket; image editing to reduce red-eye, fix blemishes and skin tones and restore color; and 3D photo creation and printing with no special equipment needed.
The Kodak ESP Office 2170 AiO printer will be available in June 2011 for $149.99 MSRP. kodak.com
