GretagMacbeth has announced an all-new, high-end professional version of its
award-winning Eye-One Display 2 monitor calibration solution. Eye-One Display
2 is said to set a new standard, delivering unparalleled functionality for high-end
professional results. At the same time, GretagMacbeth is pleased to announce
the new Eye-One Display LT for budget conscious professionals just getting started
with color management.



Both of the new Eye-One Display solutions feature the professional Eye-One Display
measurement device. The new functionality in the Eye-One solutions is a result
of the new Eye-One Match 3.6 software that is included with the devices, making
it ideal for both new users as well as existing Eye-One Display 2 and Eye-One
Pro users who want to gain more from their investment.



Eye-One Display 2 provides enhanced Workgroup Match capabilities for anyone
who needs to match multiple monitors - either within their own studio or in
a collaborative production environment including their customers and suppliers
- to ensure consistent on-screen color viewing throughout the production workflow.
Calibration parameters can be extracted from an existing GretagMacbeth monitor
profile and used as a baseline for all of the monitors in a workgroup - thus
ensuring the highest level of consistency from monitor to monitor. Users can
also define custom gamma, white point and luminance settings for their profiles
to meet their exact requirements.



With Eye-One Display 2, users can utilize the Ambient Check and Match functions
to take precise measurements of the ambient light in their environment to ensure
that their standard viewing conditions remain consistent - ideal for professional
designers and photographers who want an accurate match between their light box
and their monitor. And now users can incorporate ambient light data into their
profiles for a better correlation between their monitor and studio or any other
viewing conditions, such as a gallery where their images will be displayed.




Eye-One Display 2 also provides a number of new tools to help speed the profiling
process and help users evaluate the quality of their profiles and monitor, including
Push-Button Calibration, a fully automatic calibration for popular monitors,
a before and after image for assessing profile quality, as well as Validation
- monitor trend data which helps users track the overall performance of their
monitors. Current Eye-One Display 2 owners can benefit from all the new Eye-One
Display 2 enhancements by simply downloading the new Eye-One Match 3.6 software.



The new Eye-One Display LT solution provides the perfect entry point for professionals
who are investing in monitor calibration for the first time. It enables a basic
set of functionality within the new version of Eye-One Match 3.6 that provides
users with the possibility to calibrate their monitors and adjust the color
on-screen with a few simple clicks. Features include push-button monitor calibration,
profile creation using predefined gamma and white point settings, the ability
to check ambient light conditions and a before and after image for assessing
profile quality. If a user wants to upgrade their Eye-One Display LT to an Eye-One
Display 2, they can do so at any time simply by purchasing a license code to
enable the full Eye-One Match 3.6 functionality.



Pricing, Availability, Compatibility and Upgrades

The new Eye-One Display 2 will continue to have a list price of $249. Eye-One
Display LT is list priced at $169. Both products are compatible with Mac OS
X (10.3 or higher) and Windows 2000, XP and x64. Current owners of Eye-One Display
2 and Eye-One Pro solutions (including Eye-One Design, Eye-One Photo, etc.)
can download the new Eye-One Match 3.6 software for FREE from gretagmacbeth.com.

Remote viewing and shutter release capability opens up a host of picture opportunities, from working high atop camera platforms from ground level to very low level shooting without muddying your clothes (given your camera lacks an articulating monitor) to placing your camera in spots and being able to view and shoot without your being right behind the viewfinder. Many photographers routinely work with radio triggers for flash, especially in studio environments where the lights are set in position and photographer and model or subject move. The Hahnel Inspire adds to the mix with remote shutter release and viewing in one.

Here in this Hahnel supplied illustration you get a good idea of the way the unit works, setting up a signal relationship for both remote viewing and shutter release.

Argraph Corporation has introduced Digital High Grade (DHG) Filters, the first
optical filters designed specifically for digital cameras and lenses. Marumi
Optical Company of Japan has designed the DGH range of lens filters to eliminate
the flare and ghosting prevalent when the CCD or CMOS chips in digital cameras
convert light into electrical signals. A newly developed ultra-low reflection
coating increases light transmission. In addition the lens' outer rim
is blackened to minimize internal reflection. The satin smooth, ultra thin,
matte-black metal filter frame further minimizes refection. The new Marumi DHG
filters are available in UV, Circular Polarizer, Star-Cross, Neutral Density-8
and Soft Fantasy varieties, and come in standard metric sizes from 49mm-82mm.
There is also a Macro +3 close up filter available in sizes from 49mm-77mm.

Eastman Kodak Company is extending its partnership with Leica Camera AG to
provide image sensors for the newly announced LEICA M8. The new KODAK KAF-10500
image sensor was developed specifically for use with the M8, and marks Kodak's
second collaboration with Leica, building on the success of Kodak's interaction
with Leica on the LEICA DIGITAL-MODULE-R.



The first digital camera to use the Leica viewfinder system, the LEICA M8 extends
the Leica M series into the digital world. By working closely with Leica, Kodak
designed and optimized the new image sensor to meet the demanding needs of Leica
photographers.



With a resolution of over 10 million pixels, the KAF-10500 continues Kodak's
legacy of offering high performance imaging devices that leverage Kodak's
Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) technology for low noise, high sensitivity, and wide
dynamic range. Utilizing a 6.8µm pixel architecture, the sensor uses an
optimized microlens configuration to maximize center to corner uniformity for
improved image quality, particularly important for the broad incident light
angles associated with M series lenses. The sensor also includes anti-blooming
protection to prevent against image corruption during high light level conditions.

Eastman Kodak Company (NYSE:EK) has achieved another breakthrough in imaging technology
innovation with the introduction of the world's first 50 million pixel CCD
image sensor for professional photography. At 50 million pixels, or megapixels,
the sensor captures digital images with unprecedented resolution and detail. For
instance, with a 50 megapixel camera, in an aerial photo of a field 1-½
miles across, you could detect an object about the size of a small notebook computer
(1 foot by 1 foot).



What's more, the KODAK KAF-50100 Image Sensor features a newly designed
pixel that is smaller in size than the pixel used in current products for this
professional market. This new pixel also reduces "click-to-capture"
time for improved camera response, lowers power consumption for improved battery
life, and improves color fidelity without compromising on the benefits to be enjoyed
from larger pixel sizes.



"Professional photographers need to capture ever-increasing image detail
with higher camera performance, and that to drives us to develop new technologies
and products to serve this important market," said Michael Miller, manager
of Kodak's CCD Image Sensor Business, part of the company's Image
Sensor Solutions group. "Kodak image sensors have been known as the professional
imaging standard for years, and today's announcement reaffirms our dedication
to provide industry-leading image sensors that give professional photographers
a real competitive advantage."



The new Kodak sensor is the first to utilize the company's new KODAK TRUESENSE
6.0 micron Full Frame CCD Technology Platform, which increases both the resolution
and camera performance available to photographers. Based on a newly designed 6.0
micron pixel, the platform provides increased data throughput for faster frame
rate, a reduced "click to capture" time for improved camera response,
lower power consumption for improved battery life, and improved color fidelity,
while still retaining key performance parameters available from the larger, 6.8
micron pixel used in current products. With an 8176 x 6132 pixel array, the 50
million pixel sensor provides the highest resolution available in the popular
48 mm x 36 mm optical format used in medium format photography.



The KAF-50100 is the latest addition to Kodak's family of full-frame CCD
image sensors for the professional photography market. Engineering grade devices
of the KAF-50100 are currently available, with volume production planned for Q4,
2008.


For additional information regarding this technology, please contact Image Sensor
Solutions, Eastman Kodak Company at (585) 722-4385 or by email at imagers@kodak.com.
