Kodak Confirms Plans To Stop Making Slide Projectors

ROCHESTER, September 26 -- Eastman Kodak Company today announced its
intent to stop making and selling slide projectors by June 2004.

"The Kodak slide projector has been a hallmark for quality and
ubiquity, used for decades to produce the best in audio visual shows
throughout the world," the company said. "However, in recent years,
slide projectors have declined in usage, replaced by alternative
projection technologies."

Kodak has produced millions of slide projectors over the decades and,
although many are still in use today, the number of new slide
projectors manufactured has dropped significantly. Some remaining
market segments consist of specialty applications in museums,
planetariums, cinemas and educational institutions. Slide projectors
can also still be found in use among advanced amateur photographers.

The company will continue to provide service and support for slide
projectors through June 2011.

Kodak has no plans to discontinue any color slide films at this time.
