Rochester, N.Y. — Kodak’s digital services division got a boost this week with the announcement that Wal-Mart ordered 2,000 of the company’s Picture Kiosks.
According to the deal, Wal-Mart will install the G4 Picture Kiosks in 1,000 of its stores across the U.S.
The digital printing kiosks accept flash memory cards, USB drives and CD/DVD discs. They can scan photo prints and accept images from Bluetooth-enabled or Infrared-enabled camera phones.
The G4 kiosks can produce 4-inch by 6-inch prints in as little as four seconds.
According to Kodak, more than 80,000 of its kiosks are installed across the globe.
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. Wal-Mart has been diversifying its photo suppliers of late. It currently uses Fujifilm equipment for its film and digital processing, HP for its online front-end and in the spring the retailer expanded a trial of HP’s photo gift kiosks.
