Emtex Announces Reseller Agreement With Kodak Versamark
Kodak Versamark combines Emtex VIP and VDE output management
software with its Versamark printers as integrated digital printing solutions
for corporate data centers and service providers.
DALLAS, TX, 23 October, 2004 — Emtex, the leading provider of document output
management solutions, announced a worldwide software reseller agreement with
Kodak Versamark, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Eastman Kodak Company.
Under the terms of the reseller agreement, Kodak Versamark will integrate Emtex
VIP and VDE output management solutions with Kodak Versamark printing systems
and resell them to the Kodak Versamark customer base.
Study after study has proven that more focused, more personalized, and more
relevant full color marketing messages, combined with mission critical transactional
documents, increases response rates and revenue over generic black and white
presentations. However, in practice, this revolution in transactional document
production is severely hindered by a mixture of legacy and modern applications,
varying printstream formats, and complex workflow requirements.
The partnership between Emtex and Kodak Versamark removes these barriers and
provides customers with a solution that combines the strength of Emtex’s output
management software with the power and flexibility of Kodak Versamark printing
systems to produce high-volume full color documents, at low cost and in one

• Emtex VIP – a centralized output management server that efficiently handles all
host connectivity requirements, printstream transformation needs and daily
operational tasks. Emtex VIP facilitates faster processing of all documents,
and provides critical piece level tracking and accountability
• Emtex VDE - a simple option to Emtex VIP for enhancing legacy and modern
documents that; adds color to black & white documents, adds finishing and
integrity marks (OMR and Barcodes), automates workflow (such as reprints)
and inserts a personalized electronic insert, directly into the printstream, just
before it is printed
• A choice of Kodak Versamark’s CS300 and CS400 system controllers designed
specifically for the high-speed, variable data requirements of data centers.
Emtex VIP is been specifically optimized to convert (IBM AFP, Xerox
LCDS/Metacode, PCL, PostScript, and PDF) and output either IPDS or IJPDS to
drive these controllers
"Kodak Versamark and Emtex have been working together for several years. This
new relationship now extends our capability to offer a complete solution for
transactional print to complement our Versamark printing technology,” said Ron
Gilboa, Vice President of Marketing for Kodak Versamark. "Emtex output

and enable our clients to bridge the legacy gap, providing compelling and
