Rochester, N.Y. - Better Buys for Business recognized the KODAK NEXPRESS SE Platform and the KODAK DIGIMASTER EX Digital Production Systems each with an Editor's Choice Award in their annual review of digital printers. The Digimaster system has earned the BBB Editor's Choice award multiple times over the last several years. The leading independent authority of office imaging equipment called the KODAK NEXPRESS SE Platform "an indication of how the digital printing world is making a serious challenge to at least part of the gigantic offset printing market" and the KODAK DIGIMASTER EX Systems "an impressive on-demand printer series that has great appeal for high volume printer buyers."

Better Buys for Business evaluates hundreds of models of copiers, printers, faxes and scanners from all major manufacturers when selecting award recipients, but only one or two from each category achieve Editor's Choice status, a designation for those products that provide the best performance and represent the best value.

"Our innovative digital print solutions provide the speed, flexibility, and value necessary to help our customers embrace new opportunities and grow their business."
