Kodak to partner in PACS with Perot Systems

Film and PACS company Eastman Kodak has signed a letter of intent with Perot Systems to work together on installing institution-wide PACS networks. Dallas-based Perot Systems will provide networking and integration services in large-scale PACS situations. The deal allows Kodak to offer customers both PACS and systems integration services, according to the Rochester, NY-based firm.

In other Kodak news, the firm is partnering with archiving firm Storage Technology of Louisville, CO, to bring support for digital linear tape to Kodak's long-term archiving offerings. The DLT addition will complement Kodak's other DICOM-compliant, long-term storage products, which include CD libraries.

The DLT subsystem employs the StorageTek automated cartridge system to meet department, hospital, or enterprise-wide long-term archiving needs, according to Kodak. Like the other two archiving levels in the Kodak Digital Science medical image and information library, the long-term archiving offering features JPEG data compression, autorouting, prefetching, and support for information transfer via Ethernet, 100 BaseT, ATM, T1, and ISDN lines.
