    Many moons ago, in the Analog world, I worked for a Lanier Dealership. Their monster of a production machine was made by Kodak. I didn't know Kodak was still in the copier business.

    I know that Kodak at least used to rebrand a high volume Heidelberg series of B&W printers.

    These are beasts. They range from 110 to 185 pages per minute.

    They were also rebranded by Canon and IBM.

    Price wise they ranged from $240k to over $500k if you added all the toys.

    I used to do the software support (all UNIX) for the Canon versions.
