Xerox, Fuji team up against Kodak

Xerox Corp. and Fujifilm U.S.A. Inc. have signed deals that put Xerox technology in the hands of photo retailers and professional photo labs, and open another competitive skirmish between Xerox and Eastman Kodak Co., reports a Democrat and Chronicle article.

  The Wall Street Journal also ran an article on these deals yesterday in its section B1 called "When neigbors become rivals."

  Xerox and Fuji will collaborate on a system using Fujifilm digital processing technology and kiosks and Xerox Phaser laser printers to produce photo books, photo calendars, photo cards, and other customized photo products. The two companies also announced a similar solution using Xerox DocuColor 240/250 machines for commercial photo labs that will also allow labs to print a wide range of customizable photo products.

  "From a quality standpoint, the Xerox DocuColor 240/250 color printer was the only product on the market that could meet the high standards of our pro and commercial lab customers," John Meyer, vice president of commercial marketing, Fujifilm said in a statement.

  Financial terms of the deals were not immediately disclosed. The two companies said they would show off the technologies during PMA 07 in Las Vegas, Nev. March 8-11.

The DC12 has a fantastic reputation in photo circles even though it is 5 years old, and it's straight paper path permits 300gram + card ideal for callendars and greeting cards.

Magic Touch UK have recon DC12's available FREE with 16p inclusive click min 1000 pcm which is a great deal if you don't have a clc yet !

The Fuji product on sale at PMA LV was off the planet as far as price and they are not intouch with the photo market rather than a me too we have one approach.

I was invited to a 9am special showing with my buying group left after 15 minutes it was embarrising and very unprofessional. Look at the HP and Lucidiom options, Whitech with their latest software version also has cheap options for photo books and cards.
