During the Product
Development phase of the Solid State Lighting project, Kodak will
develop an OLED luminaire that meets Energy Star color and efficacy
specifications and will address key areas of manufacturing processes to
reduce cost. Kodak’s Vapor Injection Source Technology allows
manufacturers to significantly reduce unit-manufacturing costs, with
high manufacturing throughput and material utilization that initially
exceeds 50%, and could be greater than 75% in future manufacturing
