SOME of the latest in compact disc and imaging technology will be on show at Kodak's annual showcase of products to be held tomorrow and Thursday at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. Held under the banner of ''New Dimensions In Document Management'', the Kodak Office Imaging Showcase '94 is expected to attract the attention of government bodies and large corporations. ''Normally we target banks, government, large organisations and blue chip companies,'' said Donald Cheung, Kodak's sales manager for imaging products. ''We are talking about selling document management systems which are expensive.'' The showcase includes a product exhibition as well as a series of seminars on a range of topics including document management, signature conversion, credit card processing and optical character recognition (OCR) technology. Mr Cheung said the seminars were expected to attract 2,500 people, mostly from Hong Kong. ''We are not expecting a lot of customers from other Asian countries to come,'' he said. The showcase, which is also open to the general public, will highlight several key new technologies being offered by Kodak including its writable CD technology. ''In our seminars we will talk about CD technology and how it will be integrated with existing microfile technology to provide a better [document management] solution,'' said Elaine Chu, Kodak's markets manager for data processing products. The writable CD technology has been combined with existing microfilm and digital page scanners to allow a document to be scanned to microfilm for legal purposes and written as a digital file to CD for database retrieval, searching and OCR applications. Mr Cheung said this type of hybrid solution was important in places such as Hong Kong where microfilm was a legal media. Kodak has placed emphasis on CD technology this year because it feels it is an ideal media for indexing and retrieval, especially when compared with optical disk. ''We feel CD is a pretty good digital media as compared to optical disk because of cost,'' Ms Chu said. ''With CD there is an industrial standard,'' Mr Cheung added. ''There is also a CD boom in the [United] States.'' The showcase will also highlight new high-volume copiers which have been launched recently in the Asia-Pacific region as well as electronic signature verification. Not yet in use, the new signature verification technology will be implemented soon. ''There will be a major [Hong Kong] bank doing it next year,'' Mr Cheung said.
