Leaders in digital book publishing met in New York at the InterQuest2011 Digital Book Printing Forum to discuss the latest trends and opportunities in an industry beset with change during the past few years. At the event, Kodak's Eric Owen spoke about the role Kodak is playing with its customers by providing effective counsel and comprehensive solutions.
"The publishing industry is in a dynamic period and Kodak is helping customers profit from developing trends like short-runs, automation and self publishing," said Eric Owen, vice president, Sales and Business Development, Kodak Digital Printing Solutions group. "Kodak is well positioned to help guide printers and publishers with a blend of offset and digital technologies and comprehensive workflow offerings."
