Topic: “Digitizing photos for celebrities and the masses.”
Goldstone credits The Eastman Kodak Company for pioneering the technology that has helped reinvent the entire photo imaging industry. “I would love to take credit for scanning tens of millions of pictures, but, the real secret behind this technology is Kodak. As the worldwide leader in photo imaging, Kodak enables us to scan hundreds of thousands of pictures a day. I can’t say enough about Kodak; they are the magic behind our success and why I have been in business since 1990. I always embraced Kodak’s new products and technologies, especially to help solve the biggest problem in photography: how to quickly and affordably scan analog photographs to bring family memories into today’s all-digital world,” said Goldstone.
