The FINANCIAL -- Kodak is committed to moving forward independently with development of copper mesh touch sensor technology, following UniPixel’s decision to withdraw from joint activities with Kodak.
“We are pleased to have full control over the technology development program and excited about the business opportunities ahead. We expect to have products based on this technology in the market before the end of this year,” said Philip Cullimore, President - Enterprise Inkjet Systems Division and Micro 3D Printing & Packaging Division.
Kodak continues to believe that copper mesh technology for large-size touch screens, together with the silver- halide based touch sensors for phones and tablets that Kodak has been developing separately, will give the company a broad offering in the rapidly growing touch screen market, according to Kodak.
“Kodak has great opportunities in the touch screen market,” said Cullimore. “We plan to continue investing in both technologies to speed them to market.”
