Company to unveil the KODAK 1500 Intraoral Camera with wireless capabilities at 2010 Chicago Dental Society Midwinter Meeting.

ATLANTA, Georgia--PracticeWorks, the exclusive maker of KODAK Dental Systems, plans to introduce the KODAK 1500 Intraoral Camera with wireless capabilities Feb. 25-27, 2010, at the 145th Annual Chicago Dental Society Midwinter Meeting.

Dentists will be able to touch and see the KODAK 1500 camera, a lightweight intraoral wireless camera, weighing 94 grams.

Combined with a resolution for still images of 1024 x 768, the KODAK 1500 camera offers liquid lens technology that works like the human eye to help ensure image capture and clear, detailed images. The camera helps make small cracks and lesions easy to view.

The camera is built with a focus range from 1 mm to infinity and a video capability at a resolution of 640 x 480.

The camera's design includes a true autofocus and intuitive 8-LED lighting system that automatically adjusts to current lighting conditions to optimize illumination and contrast levels. It requires no manual adjustments.

The KODAK 1500 camera also has a polarization filter that automatically removes unwanted reflection, helping result in more true-to-life images.

The KODAK 1500 camera's wireless version provides freedom of movement. Featuring Wi-Fi technology, the camera provides fast transmission times, stability and little noise.

Additionally, the KODAK 1500 camera's single image capture button enables members of a dental team to capture images quickly and easily. The single image capture button also can automatically save images taken to a computer or an SD card.

While USB connectivity allows practices the ability to share the docking station between different examination rooms and chairs, the camera's ergonomically designed handpiece also fits comfortably in either hand and can maneuver hard-to-reach areas.

The KODAK 1500 camera integrates with the KODAK dental imaging software, the same imaging software as other KODAK dental imaging systems. KODAK's dental imaging software has a flexible interface, which makes modifying, printing, storing, and managing captured images easier.

It can be used as a standalone program or can be combined with practice management software, to further improve patient diagnosis and communication and flexibility.

"The KODAK 1500 Intraoral Camera offers a higher level of patient care, providing consistently clear, high resolution images that dentists can easily share with their patients--further improving doctor to patient communication," said Patrik Eriksson, president and CEO at PracticeWorks.

"Using a product that is designed to effectively locate common dental issues not only improves the patient's health but contributes to the overall health of a practice."

The 2010 Chicago Midwinter Meeting will be held at the McCormick Place West Building in Exhibit Hall F on Level 3. Courses start at 8 a.m., 8:30 a.m., 9 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 2 p.m. PracticeWorks will sponsor its exhibit at Booth 3218.
