KODACOLOR technology is a revolutionary technology that combines a high nozzle density printhead and pigmented inks with precision dual drop placement. Together with our instant dry papers and high speed print system you get brilliant, crisp documents and vivid photos that last a lifetime. And all this for up to 50% less than other inkjet systems*.
At its most basic, a print is literally ink on paper. Our thermal inkjet printhead has 3,840 nozzles. All those nozzles deliver fast, precise, high-density printing. Plus, our printhead is a permanent part of the printer. Not part of the ink cartridge, like most other inkjets. So not only do you have a precisely tuned system—and quality prints—you only have to pay for it once.
What makes it all work? Over a hundred years of Kodak image science. This includes advanced color management for a wider color gamut, real-life tones, and brilliant colors. It includes algorithms in the printer and in the all-in-one printer software. All of this combines to give you crisp, clear documents and Kodak lab-quality prints at home.

Most consumer inkjet printers use dyes, but Kodak printers use patented pigment based inks that deliver incredible print quality, ‘best-in-class’ print permanence of 120+ years** and prints that dry instantly.
In the latest Which Test Lab report on printer ink (July 2011) Kodak was the only printer ink awarded five out of five star ratings in all three categories for print quality; text print quality, photo print quality and water resistance. The same Which report highlighted Kodak as the lowest cost printer ink of any printer manufacturer on test.
The Kodak Hero 7.1 All-in-One Printer works with our expanded line of Kodak pigment-based 10 Series Inks. Featuring patented pigmented ink, ensures Kodak lab-quality photos and documents that last a lifetime Ideal for everyday printing. Print crisp, sharp, black and colour documents thanks to instant drying which resist smudges and smears. Kodak offers a range of ink cartridges that suit the way you print.
When you buy a printer, price will often be a major factor. But with expensive replacement ink cartridges, the total cost is not always clear – and high running costs can come as a bit of a shock later on. Kodak all-in-one Printers are different. You pay a little more for the printer but much less for the ink so now you can afford to print as much as you like.
Don’t just take our word for it, all testing was done independently to ISO standards by QualityLogic, who have provided testing services for the printing industry for over 20 years. QualityLogic are a world-leading expert in printer testing and were integral in developing the international standard (ISO) for measuring print cartridge performance. So say goodbye to overpriced ink and enjoy Kodak’s low-cost, high quality pigment-ink cartridges that give you all the bright colours and sharp text you’d expect for just a fraction of the price.
