“The world is a better place because of all the Kodak electronics technology developed over the last 50 years.”
– K. Bradley Paxton, PhD
A new book about Eastman Kodak Co.’s role in the electronic imaging and the digital revolution has been written from the front-row seat of K. Bradley Paxton, PhD, former director of the Kodak Electronic Imaging Research Laboratories, who tells about the greatest Kodak moments of the modern era in the midst of Kodak’s reinventing itself in the digital world.
This book is a celebration of the best Kodak moments of the last 50 years in electronic and digital technology. It is also the untold story of Kodak’s pioneering efforts in the field of electronic imaging during the last third of the 20th century that eventually set the stage for how people capture, enjoy, and share images today.
Insider and author K. Bradley Paxton had a front-row-seat for the photo giant’s groundbreaking inventions … and also for what went wrong. From the 1960s through the 1990s Kodak was an electronic-equipment powerhouse and digital pioneer — from the development of Cold War spy-camera technology and the Lunar Orbiter and mirrors for the Hubble Telescope to the invention of the first digital still camera, Photo CD, and early digitization and restoration of motion pictures, including Disney’s Snow White.
