Kodak and YesVideo Offer an Enhanced Consumer Experience for Online Photo and Video Conversion Services
Leaders in capturing and preserving memories join forces to expand online capabilities
SANTA CLARA, Calif.–YesVideo, the largest video transfer service in the world, today announced a relationship with Eastman Kodak Company (NYSE: EK) to expand Kodak’s video and photo transfer services to consumers through the online Kodak store at store.kodak.com. This allows consumers to have their memories stored on videotapes, movie film, slides and prints transferred to DVD, as well as the ability to have their high definition recordings transferred to Blu-ray disc.
“A relationship between YesVideo and Kodak makes perfect sense,” said Greg Ayres, Chief Operating Officer of YesVideo. “Over the years, Kodak has played a major role in encouraging the general public to capture their memories. By combining our services, customers will be able to relive their memories conveniently. YesVideo’s role is to preserve these memories so they can be shared and enjoyed for years to come. We are thrilled to work with Kodak’s online customers to convert their film, photos and videos to DVD and safely store them with YesVideo’s MemorySafe® online protection program.”
Placing a video conversion order with Kodak and YesVideo is easy. Customers simply log onto http://kodak.yesvideo.com, place and pay for their orders online and then ship their media to YesVideo. Pricing starts at 19.99. Upon completion of the digital transfer, YesVideo’s MemorySafe service will be available on a free trial basis for two months, providing Kodak’s customers with a private and secure online solution for viewing, sharing, editing and archiving their newly-digitized home movies.
“We are constantly looking for ways to augment our services. YesVideo is a nationally trusted company that transfers and preserves treasured memories to DVD,” said Tim Palmer, Kodak’s Vice President of Marketing, Americas. “We are particularly excited to offer the conversion of consumers’ high definition recordings and photos to Blu-ray disc, a service currently provided only through YesVideo.”
Over the years, consumers have captured home videos on myriad of different formats including movie film, VHS tapes, cassettes, discs and flash memory cards. Either too large to share or in an inaccessible viewing format, these memories often sit for years without being shared or viewed. With services available both online and through 34,000 retail locations throughout North America, YesVideo provides consumers with the ability to access these unwatched memories in contemporary digital formats. And, if consumers are recording memories with high-definition camcorders or smartphones, YesVideo can capture the high definition clarity when transferring to Blu-ray disc.
