Kodak and PerfectPattern, a specialist in artificial intelligence solutions for manufacturing industries, have a new agreement by which Kodak will take a license for the source code of PerfectPattern’s sPrint One software.

This will allow Kodak to further develop the version of sPrint One used in the Kodak Prinergy On Demand Workflow.

The latest agreement extends the partnership that began between the two companies four years ago with an official announcement at drupa 2016.

“This step will enable Prinergy On Demand to utilize innovative AI technology more easily and more directly than ever by providing an integrated platform with Industry 4.0 and automation features unmatched throughout the printing industry,” said Todd Bigger, vice president software, Kodak Print Division, in a news release.
