Dear friends,
I am copying a message from Eastman Kodak that you may wish to share with
other museum and/or academic colleagues if you haven't already.

Kodak Pre-discloses Plans To Discontinue Slide Projectors and Accessories
in 2004

Eastman Kodak Company has confirmed plans to discontinue the manufacture
and sales of slide projection products and accessories in June of 2004.
This early disclosure is being made to key user groups in  order
to allow time for adoption of a replacement technology or purchase of
backup slide projector products.

The KODAK products included in this event are CAROUSEL,
EKTAGRAPHIC, EKTALITE and EKTAPRO slide projectors and all KODAK Slide
Projector accessories.

The current plan is to cease manufacturing in June 2004. Kodak
anticipates that small quantities of new Carousel, Ektagraphic, Ektalite
and Ektapro slide projectors will be available through the end of 2004. In
addition, the Kodak distributor, Comm-Tec, in Germany plans to sell
Ektapro  projectors and accessories beyond 2004.

Kodak will offer service and support for slide projectors until 2011.

Slide projectors continue to be used in many government applications due
to a proven track record of cost-effective, reliable, high-quality image
projection. Combining the seven years of service and support with a long
history of trouble-free operation, means that slide projectors will
continue to enjoy many years of productive use.

Investigating and installing replacement technologies can be a challenging
and costly effort with a long implementation timeline. So, many may wish
to  purchase backup units for currently installed slide projectors while
making the transition. Upcoming government budgeting activities make it
to pre-disclose now in order to allow ample time to include slide projector
demand in the government budgeting plans for 2004.

Making Kodak aware of your future requirements will insure that there is
enough products on hand before production ends. You can do this by
contacting    Glenn Prince, Kodak Account Manager, Government Markets (678)
glenn.prince@xxxxxxxxx .

Thank You,
Glenn R. Prince
Eastman Kodak Company
Have a peaceful, joyous day.
