Sales Exceed Projections; Company Ramps Up Production to Satisfy Strong Demand

ROCHESTER, N.Y., April 12 — Carestream Health shipped its 1000th DIRECTVIEW Vita CR system, the company announced today. Launched on Oct. 1, 2010, Carestream Health’s engineers used innovative design methods and components for the desktop Vita CR platform which combines high image quality with reliability, a compact footprint and an affordable price tag.

“Sales have exceeded our expectations and we have boosted production capabilities to keep pace with demand. Our customers appreciate the improved performance and image quality offered by this tabletop CR system, and dealers report reduced installation and service costs due to the system’s dependable design,” said Helen Titus, Worldwide Marketing Manager, Digital Capture Systems, Carestream Health.

The company’s Vita CR system is being purchased by independent imaging centers, clinics, multi-physician offices and chiropractic and veterinary facilities who want an affordable, compact CR system that is also easy to use. “These facilities want to implement digital imaging technology and many are choosing the Vita CR platform to make that conversion,” Titus added.

The Vita CR system weighs just 79 pounds and is smaller and lighter than many other tabletop CR solutions. Its durable design holds up in extreme conditions and its small footprint makes it easy to transport.
