ITNewsOnline reports that the two printers are aimed to offer “advanced features, quality and affordability” to users as additions to the OEM’s inkjet range.
The ESP 1.2 and 3.2 are aimed at “photo-centric” customers including families, and are designed for ease of use and quality, with an easy Wi-Fi setup as well as a 3.8 cm and 6.1 cm touchscreen respectively. The OEM states that both devices have a “walk up and print” experience in that they offer simplicity and speed, and feature smart sensor technology that “predicts supplies and time needed to complete a job” as well as automatic adjustment of settings “based on paper size and type”.
Kodak also claims that its inkjet technology means that the printers feature the “lowest total ink replacement cost and lowest average cost per page in the industry”, with the printers also featuring synchronicity with Kodak’s Email Print Service as well as Google’s Cloud Print technology. The OEM has introduced an ink subscription service to aid consumers in ordering new consumables, with free shipping designed to encourage take up of original supplies.
Bob Ohlweiler, Vice President and General Manager of Kodak’s Consumer Business, stated: “Our newest printers and mobile app speaks to Kodak’s commitment to deliver a print experience that meets the needs of today’s consumers, whether they are at home or away from home.
“The new ESP 1.2 and 3.2 printers offer the value and ease you would expect from KODAK, with no trade-off on quality and performance.”
The devices are available from June, with the ESP 1.2 retailing at £69 ($109/€86) and the ESP 3.2 at £79 ($125/€98).
