Press release from the issuing company
Norwalk, Connecticut, USA – In bridge programming that will air on PBS television stations throughout the United States, the benefits of Kodak DryView Recording Film by Kodak Polychrome Graphics will be explored. Hosted by the award winning journalist Morley Safer, "American Environmental Review" (AER) spotlights new and innovative products and technologies that aid the environment. This independent programming is available via satellite to approximately 345 public television stations nationwide.
As a proud recipient of the Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award, Kodak DryView Recording Film distributed exclusively by Kodak Polychrome Graphics offers the performance of a top-quality conventional film but in a chemical-free imaging environment. AER producers examined this cutting-edge environmental technology on location at Minneapolis-based Commers Printing.
"With DryView Recording Film, there are no chemicals going down the drain," notes Steve Commers, DryView user and President of Commers Printing . "By making the switch to DryView, we eliminated the headache of chemical storage and disposal, as well as the need for a hazardous waste license from the county. This is definitely a ‘green’ technology."
Not only beneficial to the environment, DryView Recording Film requires less attention and expertise to achieve similar performance as top-quality conventional films.
"The switch to DryView reduces the need for photo-processing skills and chemicals monitoring," notes John Cross, Worldwide Product Line Manager Film, Kodak Polychrome Graphics. "Another benefit, is that DryView systems can be set up virtually anywhere there is electricity. No plumbing or water supply is needed."
Scheduled airing times for the American Environmental Review will be primarily during prime time. The program will likely run adjacent to such programs as National Geographic, Red Green and Nova. It has the potential to be aired by each station several times to reach over 50 million households.
