Kodak chairman/CEO Antonio Perez will accept the award on behalf of Kodak scientists. The award is the ninth Oscar that Kodak has received for scientific and technical excellence, and service to the motion picture industry. The company’s relationship with the Academy Awards goes back to the first Oscar presentations in 1929. For the past 79 years all the Best Picture winners have been produced on Kodak motion picture film.

The Vision2 film platform (www.kodak.com/go/motion) was first introduced in 2002 and consists of seven camera origination films, which incorporate novel technologies and 12 U.S. patents to date, enhancing the capability of silver-halide-based image capture. The advancements contribute to the speed and image structure improvements found in these films, resulting in smoother, cleaner images across a wide range of lighting conditions.
