Front Porch Digital has agreed to sell Eastman Kodak exclusive rights to its DIVArchive software for use in medical imaging and IT. Kodak paid $850,000 for the right to apply the software to medical applications. The software serves as a building block in networks, allowing one IT system to manage the content of others to which it is linked. Kodak's Health Imaging Group will offer the software as a stand-alone product or in combination with its PACS offerings. In Europe, Kodak has been offering DIVA Medical Software to its PACS customers through a relationship Kodak and Front Porch forged more than a year ago. Under the new agreement, Front Porch retains all other rights to DIVArchive and will continue to offer the product to the broadcast industry and other market segments.
